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
This is the first sequel of the Friday the 13th trilogy, where a new camp built next to the forbidden Camp Crystal Lake is visited by a new group of camp counselors. One by one, they fall victim to a new menace, the alleged Jason Voorhees.
Like the first movie, there are plenty of scares, screams, gore and running around. The acting performances were a notch-up from the previous film and even though it's still a typical teenager horror flick, the characters, I thought, were a little more likable and heroic, especially Amy Steel as Ginny and John Furey as Paul.
The plot is pretty basic, with a lot of running around, slashing and screaming, and the elements pretty much match the first movie. But, there is still enough tension and excitement to leave you entertained.
