Steve Miner - Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981)
Set 5 years after the first film, but really put out the following year, this is a pretty good sequel. Well, as good as expected at least. The Friday the 13th films are not known for high-brow entertainment or particularly interesting plots and this is no exception, but it does fill in a bit more of the Jason mythology.
This is actually the first film where Jason is actually the killer. A pretty long flashback to the first film kicks the proceedings off and then we get Jason taking his vengeance on the person who beheaded his mother in the previous installment. Afterwards Jason sticks to the rivers and the lakes that he's used to. A new group of teens sets up camp not on Camp Crystal Lake, but right next door, a subtlety which is lost on Jason who decides to murder them all as trespassers.
Plenty of gruesome deaths, several of which are direct lifts from Mario Bava's Bay of Blood... which really isn't a complaint. Gratuitous nudity galore, and little plot or logical decisions on the part of the camp counselors makes up the rest of the film. That's what you want from one of these anyway, competent lowest common denominator slasher. (3/5)
