I happened upon a Friday the 13th marathon on AMC just before Halloween and caught this movie, which I hadn't seen in ages. Number two is a hoot! I'm not going to get into much plot detail as you can check the Monster List for JSP and Octo's reviews.
So here are a couple of my overall thoughts... after the first one can you really believe there is another camp within walking distance of Camp Crystal Lake?? I mean seriously, what kind of parent would send their kid there??
The ambiguous ending kind of annoyed me. He grabs her through the window, Paul and the dog are there and then....she's being loaded into an ambulance. Maybe she still had the scent of dead Mama sweater and that confused Jason? I don't know.
I know I will invoke the rage of JPX here - but I gotta say, I like the pillowcase! (Sorry, dude.)
This guy would scare me
Anyway - I enjoyed the flick in the way that an early 80's slasher can make you feel warm and fuzzy. What I didn't enjoy was the fact that Kevin Smith seems to be the "It-guy" for AMC right now and man, is he freaking annoying and kind of douchey! Like we really want to hear his opinions on everything. He is on a couple of their shows apparently and also only wears ONE SHIRT on every single thing he appears in.
Other then that, the movie was great.
