There's a lot of really great iconic moments in this story from the machete kill to the execution of a certain character from the first movie. The big appeal for the movie, though, is the fact it takes time to develop all of the camp counselors enough that you actually want to see them all survive. I mean, they won't but that's not the point. You are happy when Mark is about to have his hookup and upset when it gets interrupted by a sack-wearing serial killer.
The final confrontation with Jason as well as its attempts to actually give him some personality are particularly memorable. Whether its skinny dipping, memorable murders, or whether Paul is dead or not--this is the best. Jason may not have his iconic hockey mask yet but this is the first Friday movie which follows the formula which all of the other ones will. My only regret is they killed Crazy Ralph and we're never going to find a decent replacement for him. Well, also, "Where's Paul?"
We open with footage from the first movie... always a bad sign. The runtime is only 87min with the flashbacks, so this is clearly a cash grab. What we end up getting is still a decent romp.
The best parts of the film are:
Amy Steel keeps a tradition from the first of surprisingly strong female characters. Amy doesn't just scream and run and take her clothes off, she often outright stands and fights Jason. She's smart, she's strong. The genre could learn a lot from these early movies. It's a shame she chose not to return to later installments.
Stuntman Steve Daskawisz rocks as the masked Jason. He's a huge man, with a big lumbering presence. He physically looks like an old man, hunched over and imposing, and it gives the character such flavor. The physical presence of Steve is vastly underrated in this history of horror movies. It's Steve's movements and stature that makes this character. I love watching him onscreen.
There's another solid "twist" to the ending. It's a bit of an ape on the first movie, but the series is still trying to be a "real" film at this point. There's an actual story, there's an actual continuity, this is a real place in the viewer's mind.
I barely remember anything about Part 2 except for the leads (our heroine and Jason). It's worth noting Jason still doesn't have his iconic mask yet, and I think the series loses something at that point. Here, Jason is still a human being. He's deranged, he's obsessed, he's a psycho - but he was also an abused child to end up that way. He's not just a faceless killing machine. Modern horror movies will often give only a cursory nod to setting up the Big Bad, but as of Part 2 there's actually a connection to Jason. Almost as much as you'd have to Freddy in Nightmare on Elm Street, or another fairly character-driven horror movie.
Part 2 is a mediocre film, with some stand-out performances that make it a great slasher movie. The effects still rock too, so it's worth a watch.

Part 2 is a must for horror fans. Fantastic creepy atmosphere, some likeable characters and more mayhem galore. If there’s a horny teenager Jason hasn’t killed, he hasn’t met them yet. This DVD from Paramount offers good picture quality and sound.
It's the widescreen deluxe edition & the
picture quality is quite nice. Said picture fills
all the screen on a modern TV, so "sack boy"
(he hasn't found his hockey mask just yet)
has grown up, but he really doesn't look that
imposing. As we all know, he becomes "proper Jason"
in pt 3. Another bunch of teens go messing where they
shouldn't be messing, and we get to see the results.
Some decent fx & you have yourself a great Friday flick.
Not watched extras yet, but here's whats on the back of
the box: Inside Crystal Lake memories, Fridays Legacy: Horror
conventions, Lost Tales from the camp pt2 (pt1 is on first film),
Jason Forever. The special features are 'not rated'.
The looong flashback takes the pi$$. R-rated 86mins.
1981 a smashing year
