If the first movie in this collection was “& ldquo; decent schlock” & rdquo; this one was simply pure schlock, and the collection itself was still in the midst of locating its specific niche.
Friday the 13th Component 2 is as straight of a by the numbers slasher flick as you could visualize. The intro of the Jason Voorhees character (in unusual matured kind) is one of the most historically relevant facet of this flick, and also certainly, it is another direct rip-off from Halloween, maybe a lot more direct this time around out since grown-up Jason is, other than a pillow sack instead of a spray painted Shatner mask, an ideal stand in for The Shape.
Steve Miner is no Sean Cunningham, yet he did a sufficient replica behind the lense. The teens this time about are mainly featureless, with the exemption of the Ginny personality (Amy Steele, the 2nd heroine of the series after Adrienne King) that shows some indications of life—– her partner, “& ldquo; Paul & rdquo; pretty much discolors right into the background views though.
That claimed there are some well built scenes as well as fantastic gory cinematography right here (which unfortunately was heavily chopped by the MPAA), such as the campfire scene in which the Jason myth is initial explained, a terrible mobility device eliminate on a trip of stairs that was strikingly fired, as well as the huge finale where the major characters have their big showdown with the pillow sack (no goalkeeper mask yet) sporting Jason and his dear old mom’& rsquo; s decapitated head.
This film is a straight copy of the initial one, just with a different killer, and with less treatment as well as believed given to some cinematic subtleties. These teen personalities are not presented as normally as in the very first movie.
The women’& rsquo; s busts as well as butts get more video camera time than their face (not that any person minded back then), and to price estimate Townes Van Zandt everyone is primarily just waitin’ & rsquo; around to pass away.
Friday The 13th Component 2 gets a 2 out of five: GOOD.
