Friday the 13th, Part 2

Dir: Steve Miner (Friday the 13th Part III, House, Halloween H20, Lake Placid)
Cast: Amy Steel, John Furey, AdrienneKing, Kirsten Baker, Stuart Charno, Russell Todd
USA, 1981

Seen: revisited Jan 8, 2009

Reason to see: It was on the same DVD as Friday the 13th (1980)

A world of lame. As Friday the 13th was a classic horror film that got ripped off a lot, Part II trend sets the standard for bad horror sequels. It uses a fair amount of footage from the first film, basic premise, then ditches the tension but ramps up the display of skin and bad acting.

Shannon's Overall View:
I didn't love it
I'd not likely watch it again
I'd recommend it as for fans of campy horror

At the rate remakes are being made, it could certainly happen! Although they are making a sequel to the 2009 Friday the 13th, which is the 13th in the series and Freddy vs Jason was the 12th, it could be a while.

Oh, but they are remaking A Nightmare on Elm Street as well... and Freddy vs Jason was 8th in that series. Only time will tell!
