Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981)

1981 Horror, Thriller, Mystery

User Score: 88/100


Mrs. Voorhees is dead, and Camp Crystal Lake is shut down, but a camp next to the infamous place is stalked by an unknown assailant. Is it Mrs. Voorhees' son Jason, who did not really drown in the lake some 30 years before?

Friday the 13th Part 2 is the sequel (directed by Steve Miner) and simply repeats the scenario of the original box office hit with only one exception; Jason Vorhees. His mother was the killer in the original, looking for revenge on the careless counselors who let her son die. Now, Jason has returned to get revenge for the decapitation of his mother. In Friday the 13th Part 2, kill scenes are nothing spectacular (some are repeated from the first), but Friday the 13th Part 2 still has a good amount of scares in it. After this movie, the Friday the 13th series never really does anything new with it’s disposable teens and masked slasher except for finding new ways to kill them both.
