Tommy Jarvis goes to the graveyard to get rid of Jason Voorhees' body once and for all, but inadvertently brings him back to life instead. The newly revived killer once again seeks revenge, and Tommy may be the only one who can defeat him.
Still haunted by his past, Tommy Jarvis - who, as a child, killed Jason Voorhees - wonders if the serial killer is connected to a series of brutal murders occurring in and around the secluded halfway house where he now lives.
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. Voorhee's 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 Campanack Lodge. Right near Jason's home.Camp Crystal Lake. As teenagers in the program start snooping around Camp Crystal Lake, they start getting killed violently one by one.
Warrington Gillette, who originally auditioned for the role of the head camp counselor Paul, was cast as Jason. However, he could not perform his own stunts. They brought in stuntman Steve Daskawisz (aka Steve Dash) to play Jason. Gillette ended up being credited for the role, but other than the final scene where an unmasked Jason breaks through a window the guy underneath that pillow case was usually Daskawisz. See more »
(at around 19 mins) Scott winks at Terry after hitting her in the rear with the slingshot. You can see his right arm was up towards his chest, holding the slingshot. In the next shot when Terry turns to walk away and smile to herself, Scott's right arm is fully down by his side, still holding the slingshot in his right hand. See more »

Just like Part 1, we see giant letters proclaiming 'Friday the 13th' moving towards the screen (minus the shattering glass). When they reach the screen, they explode and reveal letters proclaiming 'Part 2.' See more »
I am a huge fan of the horror genre and have always preferred Jason over the comical Freddy Nightmare movies or Micahel Myers' stale franchise. People seem to always knock sequels of any genre but this sequel is one the best in any genre not just horror. It picks up after part 1 and it doesn't suffer from continuity problems as far as the storyline is concerned. In my opinion Friday the 13th is all about parts 1-4. But part 2 is just awesome all around. It has the same creepy atmosphere that part 1 and is topped by one of the greatest endings in horror cinema. The endings to part 1 and 2 in this series are some of the best. They just seem to go so well hand in hand. Friday 2 has always been my favorite in the entire series. As you all know it marks Jason's debut, and what's kind of sad is that Jason is identified with the hockey mask and his best movie is with the sack over his head. This one is a much more credible movie. It doesn't have a supernatural Jason who looks like a monster. He's a lot more human here and not so robotic. I love watching this movie on a breezy or stormy night. It's just a perfect slasher film. People should know that the horror genre especially the slasher kind are never going to win Oscar nominations, awards or have it's cast members win em either. Horror movies are a special treat of their own and Friday the 13th Part 2 is Jason's murderous rookie of the year foray into horror films. This movie is horror gold. From Jason's mother's head in the fridge, to the crash through the window classic ending. If it doesn't get a 10 from me, it's only because nothing is ever perfect.
