Basically only for completists looking to see Jason take center stage for the first time. [Blu-ray]

Perhaps the least interesting of all the Friday the 13th films, since it tries to be a "sequel" to the first film, referencing themes and storylines.

Friday the 13th Part 2 never aspires to be termite art.

The new camp counselors are interchangeable with the old ones. Different faces, same basic people.

cannot be defended intellectually, yet, the film's very simplicity and directness gives it a kind of folkloric power, albeit power that works only if you give yourself over to it

This was the first, in what turned out to be several, Friday the 13th sequels. The original idea was to attach the Friday the 13th moniker to a Horror movie… More

Better than the first one, for what it's worth. Amy Steel is an excellent final girl - great here, great in April Fool's Day, it's confounding… More

It's practically the exact same movie as the first one (including the obvious fake ending once again). It just feels repetitive after a while and the fact… More

I'm aware that many 80's movies are awful. Not all of them (Aliens, Poltergeist) but a lot of them. When I realized I'd have to see part two of… More
