Storyline

Months after Alice beheaded psycho killer/mother Pamela Voorhees at Camp Crystal Lake, survivor Alice is still traumatized because of the murders. But there is one problem: Mrs. Voorhees' son Jason never drowned and died, so he saw Alice behead Mrs. Voorhees. Jason finds Alice soon and murders her. Five years later, a camp counselor-in-training program begins at Packanack Lodge, right near Camp Crystal Lake. As teenagers in the program start snooping around Camp Crystal Lake, they start getting killed violently one by one.

Crazy Credits

Alternate Versions

The following scenes were cut from the film in order to avoid an "X" rating from the MPAA:
  • A close-up shot Jeff and Sandra being double-impaled while having sex on the bed.
  • A close up shot of Crazy Ralph and the wire cutting.
  • A scene at the very end where we are shown the inside Jason's shack and see Pamela's face. While there, her eyes open. It was cut by Paramount for looking too fake.
  • A facing shot of Mark's face being split by the machete.
  • Blood was trimmed from the shot of Jason driving the hammer in the cop's head.
  • The flashback footage showing Mrs. Voorhees decapitation was trimmed.
  • Bloodflow was cut from the shot of Jason driving an icepick into Alice's head. Additionally, Jason turns her to the camera, revealing the icepick tip exited through her nose while a look of shock is on her face.
  • Additional bloodflow was cut from the shot of Jason slicing Scott's throat.
  • Originally, sex scene between Sandra and Jeff was longer and it included full frontal nudity from actress Marta Kober but when Paramount studio discovered that she was underage the scene was deleted completely.

War With MPAA
1 April 2006 | by packfanmanSee all my reviews

When the original 'Friday' came out into theaters, some people (read, the MPAA) were outraged at the level of the gore effects that were in the film. So, with Gene Siskel at the helm, the MPAA began a crusade to tone down the effects in horror movies. 'Friday II' was an easy target. At least one death (with a beer bottle) was cut out completely. The double impalement is seen in the film only from underneath the bed (when the arrow comes through) - however, the VHS box always tantalizes you with a shot of the spear from the top of the impalement - never made it in thanks to the MPAA. Not to mention the poor guy hanging from the tree. Although many slasher films were released the same year as 'Friday II', 'Friday II' got most of the MPAA backlash on the effects. Too bad these effects have never been put back into the film.
