Frank's Movie Log

My life at the movies.

Friday the 13th Part 2 1981

aka:
  • Friday the 13th Part II
  • Friday the 13th: Part II
  • Jason
  • Watched on Friday Nov 13, 2020 via Blu-ray (2020 | Shout Factory)
    C+: 3 stars (out of 5)

    Still no hockey mask, but we have Jason (sporting a burlap sack over his face) stalking a group of camp counselors.

    This entry has grown on me. I originally preferred the first film’s dingy atmosphere and documentary style, but I’ve come around to this sequel’s superior execution. The supporting cast proves more memorable, and the script provides the final-girl with real agency.
