This film, first released in 1981, was the first sequel to Friday The 13th and the first to feature Jason as the killer. He doesn't get his trademark hockey mask until the next film, though, so in this one he wears a sack over his head, which kind of makes him look a bit like a one-eyed scarecrow. As everyone who watches slasher flicks will know, a good slasher needs plenty of blood and gore and inventive kill scenes. Sadly, though, although this film does have some good murder scenes, it is relatively bloodless and the kills are all very quick, so it is unlikely to satisfy gorehounds. I don't think that this film was ever cut by the BBFC, but I think the American MPAA had a field day with it, as well as the other Friday The 13th films and these have never been available completely uncut in this country before. You would think, in these days of relaxed censorship, that now would be the ideal time to release the uncut versions, but apparently Paramount don't feel the same way. Anyway, this is an okay slasher flick, but nothing more, though I would recommend it to fans of the series or 80s horror in general. However, Part 3 was even worse. The acting is not too bad in this film, either, unlike some of the others in the series. Two stars from me, for this watchable but far from classic film.

This is the R1 print of Friday the 13th pt 2.
It's the widescreen deluxe edition & the
picture quality is quite nice. Said picture fills
all the screen on a modern TV, so "sack boy"
(he hasn't found his hockey mask just yet)
has grown up, but he really doesn't look that
imposing. As we all know, he becomes "proper Jason"
in pt 3. Another bunch of teens go messing where they
shouldn't be messing, and we get to see the results.
Some decent fx & you have yourself a great Friday flick.
Not watched extras yet, but here's whats on the back of
the box: Inside Crystal Lake memories, Fridays Legacy: Horror
conventions, Lost Tales from the camp pt2 (pt1 is on first film),
Jason Forever. The special features are 'not rated'.
The looong flashback takes the pi$$. R-rated 86mins.
1981 a smashing year

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.

IMO number 1 and 2 is the best part we can get in term of Friday the 13th films. Number 1 is the mother and number 2 is the Jason the son of mother. sum it all up.

They don't make 'em like they used to. A stone cold classic of the genre.
