Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

This first sequel to the surprise horror hit is a virtual retread of the original, except that it introduces maniac icon Jason Voorhees (here played by Warrington Gillette) into the mayhem mix, eager to butcher another camp full of sex-starved counsellors. There are no real surprises, just plenty of methodical murders, with graphic impaling being the favourite. Steve Miner directs by the numbers because, in this mean-spirited slasher, it's the splatter that matters, not the dead-end cast.
