Friday the 13th Part 2

I know I just announced my plan to watch the Friday the 13th series before Halloween and it already looks like that is not going to happen.  Cody is going back to Moyie for Thanksgiving and then just before he gets back I'm going to Cranbrook for a few days.  At this rate we'll be lucky to get half way through the series before Halloween.

Despite that we watched Friday the 13th Part 2(1981) the other night and don't worry because Jason is in this one.  The movie starts off with like 10 minutes of recapped footage from the first movie.  Then we see , Alice, the lone survivor from the first film, but she dies right before the credits start.  We don't see who kills her, but it's totally Jason.  What I want to know is how did he know where she lives?  He's a deformed freak who lives in the woods.  Did he call information to get her address?  How did he get there?  Take the bus?

We are back at Crystal Lake, but not at the Camp Crystal Lake, this time it is training camp for camp counsellors which just happens to be beside Camp Crystal Lake.  There are lots of teenaged fodder and once it gets dark and a storm blows in you know it's time for people to start dying.

The story goes that Jason didn't really drown in the first movie, but survived and has lived off the land in the woods ever since.  He witnessed his mother get killed, so now he has inherited her hatred of horny teenagers.  They even show his crap shack out in the woods.  Also, he doesn't have his trademarked hockey mask yet, so wears a burlap sack on his head.

The best part is that even though the shack lacks electricity and running water, it still has a toilet.


Jason kills a bunch of teenagers, the sheriff and the local crazy who was also in the first movie.  As the heroine, Ginny, flees from Jason she comes across his crap shack which in addition to a toilet to that doesn't work, also holds his mother's sweater and severed head.

Are those Ikea tea lights?

Ginny puts on the sweater and pretends to be Jason's mother, distracting him for a bit.  Ginny's boyfriend, Paul shows up there is a fight and Jason gets a machete buried into his the shoulder.  Ginny and Paul make it back to camp.  The end.  Yeah, right!

The real killer!

Friday the 13th Part 2 is an abolute classic that shouldn't be missed!  Just ignore the 33% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.  As far as kills go my favourite is when the wheelchair guy takes a machete to the face.  

Cool, right?  It actually doesn't stop there.  After he gets macheted he rolls down a flight of stairs.

Race ya to the bottom!

That's all I got this time.  I half assed the writing parts more than usual because the pictures took too much work.
