Goofs

At the beginning of part 2 Alice yells out to who presumably is her daughter but there is no mention of her again and she is never spoken of. Also, how would Alice be a camp counselor with a child to take care off. Seems out of any Friday character. See more »

Quotes

Terri: [to Scott who stepped into a trap] Don't go anywhere.
Scott: Very funny.

Great Slasher Flick
18 August 2003 | by LT-10See all my reviews

This one has got all the things that make up a fun slasher flick. Pointless nudity + pointless sex + blood-o-rama +cheap scares. All in all I was more entertained by this one than the original. I also like how it was the perfect length for a thriller, it didn't get tiresome. It's hard to make these types un-predictable, but they've avoided that here to my surprise. My only complaint is the ending, I didn't get it. Maybe its cleared up in #3? Anyways, See it for some scares! 8/10
