Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981)

2 1/2 Stars (out of 4)


By Jeffrey M. Anderson

This is 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; things would get more interesting as the films became more stripped-down, more self-contained and more primal, essentially hideous clones of one another. Fans know that this is Jason's first outing as the killer, though the film once again plays it as a murder mystery, with his identity a secret until the climax. Still, it does deliver the gore and nudity. Director Steve Miner was a producer and unit production manager on the original film.
