Friday the 13th Part 2 Reviews

January 9, 2017
Yes, it's a cheesy slasher film, but you know that going in, and this is a well-done example of the genre.

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.

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

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

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

Part 2 remains, by this measure, a domino in the middle of the chain, offering no added momentum, no closure, and no redirection. For what it is, however, it's a strong slasher film.

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

More of the same. It all depends on your taste for carnage.
