Friday the 13th 2 (1981)
Director: Steve Miner
Main Stars: Amy Steel, Betsy Palmer, John Furey, Adrienne King, Warrington Gillette
Storyline: The son of Mrs. Voorhees saw his mother’s death. The truth is Jason did not fully drown that day at Crystal Lake and now he wants revenge for his mother’s death five years later.
Review (Spoils): This is another gem for the series and it is just a great as the first one. We have pointless sex, slaughter and bring on the blood. (we even have pee) We welcome aboard Jason (not for the first time) but it is for the full of the film.
The kids are back in town not at Camp Crystal Lake but nearby and with their snooping around to get a glimpse of Camp Blood they stirred up their worse nightmare. Alice (Adrienne King) from the first film is back and pays her dues. We have the beautiful Ginny (Amy Steel) playing the more seriouscounsellor and her boy counterpart Paul (John Furey) plays the wanna be tough guy.Great acting on both but Amy Steel takes the lead when it comes tofeeling for her character. Slowly one by one the teenagers get knocked off with such things like the classic machete, spears and even a pitchfork! Jason (Warrington Gillette) is back and this time he brought his grain sack with him.
Rating: This movie is pretty damn good for being the second of the series. We got Jason, cameo of Alice and Mrs. Voorhees (heehee) and lots of chasing. I loved the idea of the shack, the shrine and the sweater coming together. This leads to a great ending and it all makes sense. So grab some cold ones and enjoy a good time at the lake and as Ralph says “I told the others, they didn’t believe me. You’re all doomed. You’re all doomed.”
