Yes, it's a cheesy slasher film, but you know that going in, and this is a well-done example of the genre.

...ultimately right in line with its passable yet far-from-memorable predecessor.

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

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

Not as good as the original, but still pretty fun, it serves up more of the same and continued to be fresh enough before its many other sequels got too silly.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

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.

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

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

A solid first sequel and the truly chilling jump scare at the end gives the original's a run for its money.

Its general competence remains a surprising improvement, albeit not one strong enough to elevate it into the realm of recommendation.

All things considered, it probably should have been a whole lot worse.

The last Friday the 13th film that makes an effort to scare its audience, rather than just going through the motions.

If slasher movies are your thing, take a stab at this one.
