A superior sequelBy Dave Hunt from London, England , 02 Feb 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Set 5 years after the events of Friday the 13th, Camp Crystal Lake is now a prohibited area, and Jason has become a myth fading in peoples minds.
A fresh group of teenagers are brought to a camp just a short walk from Crystal Lake, and it seems Jason is alive and has the taste for blood.
I'm not easily scared by films, but I can think of two distinct occaisions where I literally leapt an inch from my seat!
I like the way that in this film Jason has not yet taken on the appearance that everyone remembers him for. It makes this film separate from the rest of the series, and follows on very well from the original.
This film is a better production than the first. The acting is more convincing, and the camera angles, and suspense is much more satisfying. You can easily watch this film without having seen the first, but I think you will appreciate the film more if you have.

Okay Who's For Seconds..By Richie77777 (274 reviews) from Essex , 31 Jul 2011
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideRight from the start we see Jason's big shoes and we see the only surving character from the first film having a nightmare which recaps all the best partsfrom the first installment and even though that bit in the boat happens again it still gave me a jump!The second part from the bat builds the suspense about one hundred times better than the first. One reason being it initially only concentrates on one character, (the first had many). A returning character who the film could do without is that old chap going up to people saying : 'You're all doomed!' He's just plain annoying! Near the start one of the female protaganists says : 'Hey you guys..' which simply reminds me of the Goonies! Just like several ofthe Early Nightmares On Elm Streets the acting is absolutely atrocious! There are some genuine shocks in the movie,the cat through the window, the pretend Jason at the camp fire, to name a couple.The things that are staple for a decent horror film.The formula, (like many second sequels) is very similar to Friday the 13th and for a large segment at the beginning, (bar the opening sequence), its not particularly interesting. Interestingly its amazing how many bad guys manage to outwit people in horror films. Although I guess if this wasn't the case then it would be much of a film! A theme used in a lot of American movies whether they be horriors, gross out comedies or the like is there are a lot of young adults who go to a party. Also I find it disappointing that the viewer doesn't see much of Jason.The whole, 'Mummytheme,' is quite a wierd one to get your head around rather like, 'Come to Mummy,' in Hellraiser 2! In fairness its quite an inconclusive ending.
Scary KnickersBy RPB (11 reviews) from Lost in TV Land , 12 Apr 2011This is strangely watchable even though some of the acting is wooden at best. Plenty of bikini shots for amusement although the rumpled nylon briefs one girl changes into just before getting axed in the head did make think she deserved it. Bit harsh... And yes, even though you know what is coming, it delivers when it finally arrives!!
not to bad,not to greatBy messiah420 (3 reviews) from Bathgate , 26 Nov 2010the movie itsself isent all that fantastic but fans of the series will enjoy the blu ray special features ..better than the first one
The series' star emergesBy brokenking (268 reviews) from Bristol , 19 Oct 2010The first movie in the franchise was quite an achievement in that it managed to generate enough interest to warrant a sequel. This first film to have the star all the way through is pretty much a repeat of everything that came before. Even the ending of the second film is inspired by the first. Its as watchable (and forgettable) as the first.
Unlucky For SomeBy ZiggyTheKid (86 reviews) from Dundee , 19 Jan 2010Second in what seems an endless series of low par slasher movies, this one is dull although it did set its main character on the road to legend status in the genre.
