Hello my Movie Geeks!
Welcome to day 2 of our Halloween Countdown. Yesterday we watched Tales from the Crypt Demon Knight it received 3 🎃Pumpkins from Mrs Movie Geek. It received 4 🎃 from me!
Tonight we’re watching Friday the 13th Part 2. As I’ve mentioned we watched a lot of the classic slasher films in last year’s Halloween Countdown. As such this year we are focusing on the sequels to that list.
Friday the 13th Part 2
I originally hadn’t seen Friday the 13th, but oddly, I had seen Part 2. You can watch last years review here.
To be honest, if you’ve seen the first one then you’ve technically seen the second. It follows almost exactly the same story only slightly expanding the story.
It is a continuation following the lone survivor from the first film and killing her off at the beginning.
Then it just re-treads the first film, but we already know Mrs Voohrees is dead, so who is the killer?
At this point on, the people who haven’t seen the film and Drew Barrymore wouldn’t know who the killer is. As this franchise has a whopping 12 movies under its blood-soaked belt, the majority know Jason Voorhees. It’s fair to say that Jason is a mainstay of the Horror Genre.
Overall, this was just a sequel to a low budget scary movie from 1980. The sequel was made cheaply to cash in on the popularity of the first, and released in 1981.
There is no thought, there is nothing too unexpected. Just a new group of scantily clad teens running around the woods, being taken out by Jason. A deformed wild man trying to get revenge for his mother’s death.
