A little better than its predecessor, but that's not saying much.

Combustible Celluloid

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.

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

Even crude techniques, when properly employed, can be effective, in a lowest-common-denominator kind of way.
