Product Description

It's five years later and a new group of teenaged camp counselors arrives on the scene and finds itself menaced by an unseen killer.

From Amazon.co.uk

As bad as Friday the 13th, Part 2 is, it's a work of art in comparison to the rest of the Friday the 13th flicks that came afterward. This installment officially introduced us to Jason Voorhees as the killer (if you remember Drew Barrymore's fatal phone quiz in Scream, you know that the killer in the first Friday the 13th was actually Jason's mother), and made the slicing and dicing even more generic. Survivor Alice is dispatched within the first 10 minutes, and we're left with plucky Ginny (Amy Steel, doing a fairly decent Jamie Lee Curtis impression) to do battle with the monstrous Jason. Ginny's part of a another group of horny teenagers (less intelligent as well as less attractive than their predecessors) who try to resurrect Camp Crystal Lake five years after the initial murders--a pretty mean feat, considering this movie was made only a year after the first one. Being a smarty-pants child-psychology major, Ginny tries to outwit the dim Jason, and at one point dons the bloody and moldy sweater of Jason's late mother (which is more disgusting than any of the killings beforehand) in an attempt to confuse the masked killer. Jason may not be the brightest bulb on the tree, but the only one who's going to pull the wool--or in this case, the burlap--over his eyes is Jason himself, who wears a sack with one eyehole throughout the movie to hide his deformed features (he finally found his way to a sporting-goods store and his trademark hockey mask appears in the third installment of the series). Directed by Steve Miner, who also helmed the next Friday the 13th film (in 3-D no less) as well as the more reputable House, Forever Young, and Halloween: H20. --Mark Englehart --This text refers to the DVD edition.

Format: DVD
The impending release of Michael Bay's "reboot" for Jason prompted DVD reissues of Parts 2-8, the rights of which are still owned by Paramount in the UK. This means new cover art, better transfers and extras for Parts 2 & 3.

Whereas the 'My Bloody Valentine 3D' remake resulted in an extremely satisfying special edition of the 1981 original with the MPAA-excised footage restored in its gory-glory, when it comes to 'Friday the 13th', it's still stinge-ville in terms of extra material...

There's an interview with Peter Bracke, author of Crystal Lake Memories, footage from horror conventions, interviewing 4 of the Jason-players and the curious 'Lost Tales of Camp Blood Part 1' vinette, which is a no-budget sub-10 minute scene of a couple slaughtered in a cabin by a killer who isn't Jason... It's set to Harry Manfredini's trademark score but has little point to it. Parts 2 & 3 appear on the next DVD.

The film itself looks better than ever, still my favourite in the series (edging out the original thanks to steadicam and Amy Steel as the uber-heroine). It's just a real pity that the franchise owners *still* refuse to either present the fans with the sought-after cut footage (especially the double-impaling) or at the very least confirm it no longer exists at all...

Friday the 13th 2 looks really good on blu-ray, standing miles above the dvd release and also better than the Friday the 13th blu-ray. It's not perfect, some grain exists but given the age and source this is understandable. The image is sharp and clear with good detail. The night scenes hold up well too.

This is the R rated version, so no new gore has been reinstated. Which, as is suggested in the extras, may not even exist any more. Don't hold your breath for a better edition of this film being released. Paramount doesn't seem to care a great deal for this series of films, which is a shame, you can only think that is someone like New Line had the rights to these films there would be better editions. Never the less, Paramount has done a good job with the picture quality at least.

The extras are ports of the dvd edition. Brief and not too interesting. Worth upgrading if you have the dvd. The film has never looked better.

Positive.
1)The gore is more graphic in this sequel & the Jason character takes centre stage now as Crystal Lake's killer of campers.
2)The return of crazy Ralph albeit a short one.

Negative.
1)Paramount still haven't released a unrated version of this film & the footage still exists as I've seen it on You Tube, Come on Paramount the fan's want a unrated release of the first 8 movie's,Jason Goes To Hell is uncut as is Freddy vs Jason & the remake on dvd & Blu ray.
2)The ending is badly edited as it makes no sense whatsoever,See Backstory & ending explanation below my review.
3)Steve Miner directed Friday The 13th Part 3 & also directed, My Bloody Valentine 1981 version, Halloween H20 & Lake Placid.

REVIEWED VERSION: 2009 Paramount Special Edition UK DVD

Director: Steve Miner

Cast: Amy Steel, John Furey, Adrienne King, Kirsten Baker, Warrington Gillette

SYNOPSIS

Mrs. Voorhees is dead. Camp Crystal Lake has been shut down. Alice (Adrienne King) the sole survivor of the original FRIDAY THE 13TH is still traumatized from the events that took place there.
Five years later, another camp at Crystal Lake, not too far away from the original camp site, opens and a new group of counselors is gathering for the slaughter.

THE PROS & CONS

FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 2 is a very poor imitation of the original slasher film and along with parts 3, 5 and 8 the worst of the original FRIDAY movies.
It was also cut by approx. 1 minute to secure the R rating, in some scenes the editing is clearly visible, and as of today, none of the cuts have been restored in any way, as Paramount Pictures obviously has zero interest in the movies.
Compared to other slasher films of the 80s (MANIAC, THE PROWLER, THE BURNING) this is a terrible slasher film: the killings are unspectacular and bloodless.
FRIDAY THE 13TH PART II is very much a carbon copy of the original. The characters are different, this time the killer is Jason and not his mother, but all in all you are getting the very same film.
I wasn't impressed with any of the actors here, but then again there is very little talent required to play a sex crazed canon fodder teen. Most of Jason's parts were actually played by a stuntman.
The soundtrack is exactly the same as in the original movie, but still very effective.
Unless you're a die hard FRIDAY THE 13TH fan you will wanna skip this one (and if you are a fan you will already own it).
