Basically a lazy retread of the first film.

A terrible sequel that only serves a purpose of establishing a villain. [Full review in Spanish].

Violence, gore, sex, drinking/drugs in slasher sequel.

One monster's company, II's a crowd.

Gory with a hint of humour, this pretty much does what it says on the tin.

The plot is an excuse for joining together horrors, all of the sado-masochist kind, and the acting is rudimentary at best. It probably will make a fortune.

Director Steve Miner and writer Ron Kurz introduce more potential victims than they have time or invention to knock off.

There are no real surprises, just plenty of methodical murders, with graphic impaling being the favourite.

It still is a sad commentary that so much creative energy should have gone into such a sordid, kinky and ultimately demoralizing look at such bizarre facets of human nature both on the screen and in the audience.

Somehow, this one's even worse than the first.

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.

Producer-director Steve Miner doesn't move in and out of scenes with the flair of original producer-director Sean Cunningham nor is he able to create the same nauseatingly realistic murder situations.

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.

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.
Feb 14, 2009
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

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

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