Go Ginny! Go go go go go GOOOOO!
Alright, let's face it. The first 20 minutes of this film is pretty rough. Starting off with silly and unneeded exposition of the previous film, this second installment takes awhile to get the ground running. However, the last half-hour is Friday The 13th at its finest, with a final girl that truly rocks.
The Awesome: The camp-fire scene, which is pure and undiluted atmosphere. The Shih-Tzu named Muffin. C'mon Muffin, why do you have to be so cute? Jason wearing some stylin' burlap. Pamela missing the rest of her body. Everyone, don't lie to me and say that you didn't jump with the "doorknob" scare. "PAUL, THERE'S SOMEONE IN THIS FUCKIN ROOM!"
The Terrible: The opening. Jason getting hit in the nuts. Teenagers playing handheld water games. Really?
Overall, Part 2 is better than the first, bringing the camp and the scares in equal measure.
