Friday the 13th Part 2 was released on May 1, 1981.
After watching the original Friday the 13th to celebrate its 40th anniversary last Summer, I decided to run the series. I watched Parts 2 through 5, thanks to Amazon Prime. Those were the ones I missed/didn’t get a chance to watch.
A camp next door to the infamous Camp Crystal Lake is open for the season and everyone is having a fun time, until the counselors start getting picked off one by one by a mysterious assailant. Is it Jason Voorhees, victim of a tragic drowning, back to exact revenge for the killing of his mother the previous year?
Sackhead Jason might be my favorite iteration/look of the slasher.
If you are looking for a double feature this weekend, why not Friday the 13th Part 2 and The Burning, which is also celebrating its 40th anniversary this year?
