Friday the 13th Part 2

Updated: Oct 14, 2023


The year after the original box office smash hit scared up huge crowds in theatres, FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 2 was unleashed.

It's hard to remember just how scary and graphic these films were in 1981. There is more graphic violence in any half hour of "The Walking Dead" than you'll find here, but you wont find any solid characters like you would on that show.

A parade of stock characters and bad actors attend the camp NEXTDOOR to Camp Crystal Lake, allowing their nightmare neighbor Jason to drop by and demonstrate his ax, knife, spear and hatchet skills.

You have the nerd, the jock, the shy girl, a guy in a wheelchair...you get the idea.

One by one they manage to go into their cabins or the woods alone. Apparently they cant hear that spooky "chi-chi-chi, ahh-ahh-ahh" music, cause if they could, they be running like hell.

Amy Steel is actually better than the film deserves as Ginny, the smartest heroine in the bunch. By the time she starts trying to use child psychology on Jason, you realize why she's the sole survivor....or is she???

Dumb, sexy, stupid and bloody, its not much worse than the original (faint praise) but the best sequel actually came the following year with the 3D third chapter.

Part 2 gets a D-.
