The best Jason has ever looked.
5 August 2003 | by THEPIPEMAN64See all my reviews

This is one of the better sequals. One reason is that because it is the first appearence of Kane Hodder as Jason and is the one actor to were the costume more than once. Mostly anyone who knows anythinf about this series will tell you that Kane is the best Jason there ever was. Although the movie is trying to some like the film "Carrie" it does a pretty good job of pulling it off. The film is basically about this teenage girl who thinks she killed her dad during a dispute and come to the Crystal Lake with her mom and shrienk to work things out because everytime she gets angry her teleconises goes off the charts which just so happens to wake Jason. Close to were she is staying are a group of teenagers who of course get slaughtered in some pretty grissley scenes. I must this film is one of the better sequals of the series and is also a good slasher for the genera.
