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.


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

2.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for the film, 2 for this edition 10 Feb 2009
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...

4.0 out of 5 stars Never looked better 7 Mar 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great sequel 24 Sep 2002
The time between myself viewing the first and the second part was about 5 years, but the continuation works very well in Part 2. Jason makes a much better serial killer than his mother (even if he does have a pillow case over his head). The film has a great way of being gory and making the viewers jump, and what you think is predictable sometimes works out differently. I watched this film twice in a week and thouroughly enjoyed it more the second time around and I gave it a better rating than 'Friday the 13th'. It is one of the few sequels which may, actually, be better than the original. So, if you didn't really enjoy the first part, watch Part 2 and I'm certain you will want to watch the rest!

4.0 out of 5 stars friday the 13th part2 10 May 2004
By Jake
Although this isn't the first in the MASSIVE series of 'friday the 13th',it's the first big appearance of the hatchet wielding maniac JASON VORHEES (one of the best 80's slasher killers, along with FREDDY KRUEGER,MICHAEL MYERS and the king of the 70's, LEATHERFACE).Along with the blood stained machete,the other trademark for JASON is the hocky mask.The mask has got more and more beaten up as the films go on (JASON really seems to like it) untill he changes it for a more futuristic one in 'JASON X'.As you may or may not know he doesn't get it untill 'friday the 13th part3'and instead seems to wear a pillow case on his head(don't knock it 'till you try it)!His grossly deformed head means only one eye will open so he only cuts out one eye hole(either that or he just got bored while massacring his feather bed and could only be bothered to cut out one eye hole).Paired with some dungarees and a pitchfork you may be aprehensive but DON'T be,you'll grow to love the combination that has come to be affectionately known as BED HEAD.This is as good as sequels get so BUY IT!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Looking sharp on Blu-Ray 26 Oct 2009
By Mr. Blu
For a film pushing 30 years old this is a surprisingly good transfer. The opening sequence which recycles scenes from Part One is unpromising, with unnatural looking colours and a generally low amount of HD credibility. But this reveals itself to be a stylistic choice when the film gets rolling. The picture from then on is very sharp and clear, colours are great. The only criticism would be that close-ups don't offer the absolute wow factor for depth and plasticity; long and medium shots sometimes look better than close-ups. But when/if you see Part III on Blu you will think that this disc is a miracle. The True HD 5.1 soundtrack is also well-balanced and forthright.

The film itself is right up there with the original. The plot is not quite as good, but this is the film where we really see Jason get to work and establish the identity of the franchise. The 1980 original, for all its merits, was not always clever enough about hiding its debts to "Psycho" and "Halloween". For much of the film Jason (or often Jason's shoes and legs!) has real threatening presence, only late on does he occasionally turn a little goofy, perhaps a sad precursor of how the film was to eventually lose its way. When he reveals his deformed face, this is done no favours by HD, and it is clear that the deaths are both tamer and less well done by the FX standards of the recent "Friday the 13th" film from Marcus Nispel. But none of this should detract from a film that has spawned imitations and cultural quotations far and wide. Better than ever on Blu, and if you hate black bars on your TV, you'll be pleased to know that like the first and unlike the third this is in aspect ratio 1.85:1 so you're bar-free. Happy Halloween!
