About this deal

Tom McLoughlin directs Thom Matthews as Jarvis, and the battle-worn character decides it is finally time to sever ties with Jason. In many cases, the deleted—or “slashed”—scenes fortunately include the original murder scenes, which serve as yet another testament to the MPAA’s hypocrisy and inconsistency. Despite the low production budget, most of the effects blending is seamless and backgrounds are quite deep. The box set will be released in a Limited Edition of only 50,000 numbered units worldwide, and includes a replica of Jason's hockey mask, an 8-page Collector's Booklet and hours of special features. If you know someone who’s a big-ass slasher film enthusiast, I have no doubt that they’ll be overjoyed to receive one of these sets for Christmas this year (or Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa, or whatever: Jason’s an equal-opportunity slasher).

Part II is little more than a retread of the original film with a different villain, but it's a fun, gory thrill ride and an important milestone in the series. This movie is pretty damn good thanks to committed performances from Matthews and Jennifer Cooke, who takes over as the protagonist. Instead, imagine the joy that finding a (slightly-scaled down) Jason mask under the Christmas tree will inspire. Despite ominous warnings from the locals to stay away from 'Camp Blood,' a group of counselors at a nearby summer camp decide to explore the area where seven people were brutally slaughtered.The film, directed by genre staple Joseph Zito, is actually well shot and blocked, which is immediately evident in the legitimately terrific opening tracking shot that picks the film up right where the last one had left off—something that’s unusual for these horror franchises.

There's little narrative or production backstory fans of the series don't already know, and ranking each of the twelve films from best to worst has become a rite of passage for Friday the 13th devotees.Friday the 13th Part 2 : After a tense trademark opening, the film tails off, only for the shock formula to re emerge for the final third, with yet another unexpected ending.

An affable young cast, including Kevin Bacon and Adrienne King, lines up for the slaughter, and Tom Savini's makeup effects are particularly impressive for the budget. AVC-encoded transfer that is occasionally a bit too dark, with crushing shadows and murky backgrounds.

That it turned out as well as it did is credit to director/producer Cunningham, who previously worked with horror legend Wes Craven on The Last House on the Left. Independently owned and operated publications like Slant have been hit hard in recent years, but we’re committed to keeping our content free and accessible—meaning no paywalls or fees.
