Friday The 13th Part 2 (1981)
Movie Review by The Spastic Cannibal
08.09.12

Friday The 13th Part 2 (1981) The second chapter in the "Friday" saga is probably my favorite among the sequels. I know most people consider either 4 or 6 to be the more noteworthy of "Friday" follow-ups, but "part 2" just has more shit I just find memorable.

As you can imagine, they didn't stray far from the overall concept seen in the original - camp counselors meet up at their site to get ready for the lil' campers. Only this time, we've got more sitting ducks to kill off, including the typical skinny prankster asshole, a guy in a wheelchair, and one of the FINEST asses to ever come out of the 80s cut-off denim mold! Watch how that pebble just bounces off it! And you briefly see a black guy during the campfire scene, but mysteriously vanishes without a trace and never even gets a line. Weird. And, of course, now that Pam Voorhees was done in by Alice - who certainly doesn't live here anymore after getting icepicked early on -, baby boy Jason steps in the mow these punks down - dressed exactly like the killer from "The Town That Dreaded Sundown". Not very creative, but it was only for one movie, so...

The death scenes are occasionally cool. I'll just get it out of the way: the fucking cripple toppling limply down the stairs after getting his face machete-slammed! I don't recall another "Friday" death scene requiring more rewinds in my life! Everything about that demise is perfect - from the priceless groan Crippy lets out, to the fact that the chair makes it ALMOST down the entire stairs without falling over! I only wished they hadn't freeze-framed and cut away so I could be sure that Mr. Handicapable made it all the way down. Anyways, enough on that.

"Friday the 13th: Part 2" goes great with the first one, plus it just feels like the "purest" sequel to me. No gimmicks or bullshit, just a continuation of the original.
