Quotes

Paul: I don't wanna scare anyone, but I'm gonna give it to you straight about Jason. His body was never recovered from the lake after he drowned. And if you listen to the old-timers in town, they'll tell you he's still out there, some sort of demented creature, surviving in the wilderness, full grown by now... stalking... stealing what he needs, living off wild animals and vegetation. Some folks claim they've even seen him, right in this area. The girl that survived that night at Camp Blood, that... ...

My second personal favorite movie!

When you thought you got a latter favorite FT13th movie, not all are that bad. The first one was a thriller and a chiller. The second one is better. More babes, more fright, the more intense. My favorite character in the movie is Ginny(Amy Steel). This is her start before the TV show "The Powers of Matthew Star". Ginny is one of the best looking babes in the movie, second is Terri, whoever's next? Who cares. A new killer is out and about wreaking havoc in The Crystal Lake area. And for Jason Voorhes? He's here, without the famous hockey mask. This is a start of a the terror that haunts Camp Crystal Lake. With Pamela Voohees headless, the new threat is worse than Pam herself. I like the people who hooked up with one another, I liked the one who changes her top and her panties. That scene is one of the biggest teasers in the movie. Terri is the one with Muffin the dog was a real athlete, she got popped with a pea-shooter, then gets her clothes stolen while skinny-dipping in the moonlight, at least she was still alive at that time, that scene worried me a little bit. She looked good with her hair all wet. I'm glad that Muffin was the other survivor in the movie, the question is, "Who was the other dog that got killed?" Rating 4 out of 5 stars.
