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.
