Storyline

After killing Mrs. Voorhees, who was avenging her son Jason's death, Alice Hardy can finally sigh with relief. But there is just one problem. Jason never drowned at Camp Crystal Lake and lived in the nearby woods as a hermit all this time. The day that Alice beheaded his mother, Jason saw everything and his heart filled with thirst for revenge. Two months later, Alice gets stabbed by an ice pick in the temple and disappears. Is Jason behind this? Five years later, a camp next do to Camp Crystal Lake is built and the counselors start snooping around the old, abandoned camp ruins. This makes Jason very upset, since his shack is next to the remains of Camp Crystal Lake and what is inside the shack shall be kept secret forever, even if it means killing nine people! Written by E. Mlodik

Trivia

Alice and Crazy Ralph, the only two surviving characters from Friday the 13th (1980), who are eventually killed off by Jason, are not mentioned by name at all throughout this sequel. See more »

Goofs

When Ginny is hiding in front of the car, Jason is looking in the direction she is at, and her head is 4 inches above the hood, so Jason should have been able to see her bright blonde hair and the good lighting. See more »

Jason
8 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After watching the first one i was like okay,, first i was thinking well 99 percent of all sequels suck,,, not this one,, no sir,, you get to see Jason in this one,, and only mommy in flashbacks,, this time the action is jacked up to 10 plus on this one,, lots more killings,, sexy girls with nice apple bottoms. you get to see Jason do some of the killings in various gruesome ways,, also the idea of the teenagers getting killed cause they are having pre marital sex is just so freaking awesome , it's funny too,, kinda like an i told you so... this movie is a lot more face paced than the original,, and also has a killer ending that is definitely not for the faint of heart and shouldn't be missed ,, especially by the true horror fan. so all in all i would say that this is better than the original, cause we get to actually see Jason in this one,, and the girls are a whole lot hotter which makes it nice also.
