Tommy Jarvis goes to the graveyard to get rid of Jason Voorhees' body once and for all, but inadvertently brings him back to life instead. The newly revived killer once again seeks revenge, and Tommy may be the only one who can defeat him.
Still haunted by his past, Tommy Jarvis - who, as a child, killed Jason Voorhees - wonders if the serial killer is connected to a series of brutal murders occurring in and around the secluded halfway house where he now lives.
Months after Alice beheaded psycho killer/mother Pamela Voorhees at Camp Crystal Lake, survivor Alice is still traumatized because of the murders. But there is one problem: Mrs. Voorhees' son Jason never drowned and died, so he saw Alice behead Mrs. Voorhees. Jason finds Alice soon and murders her. Five years later, a camp counselor-in-training program begins at Packanack Lodge, right near Camp Crystal Lake. As teenagers in the program start snooping around Camp Crystal Lake, they start getting killed violently one by one.
According to director Steve Miner, the ending where Jason attacks Ginny through the window is not a dream, which also gives us a mystery as to what happened to Muffin. See more »
(at around 27 mins) When Scott is dancing with Muffin, his shirt collar is up on the close-up shots, but changes to down in the shot through the window. See more »

Just like Part 1, we see giant letters proclaiming 'Friday the 13th' moving towards the screen (minus the shattering glass). When they reach the screen, they explode and reveal letters proclaiming 'Part 2.' See more »
The following scenes were cut from the film in order to avoid an "X" rating from the MPAA:
A close-up shot Jeff and Sandra being double-impaled while having sex on the bed.
A close up shot of Crazy Ralph and the wire cutting.
A scene at the very end where we are shown the inside Jason's shack and see Pamela's face. While there, her eyes open. It was cut by Paramount for looking too fake.
A facing shot of Mark's face being split by the machete.
Blood was trimmed from the shot of Jason driving the hammer in the cop's head.
The flashback footage showing Mrs. Voorhees decapitation was trimmed.
Bloodflow was cut from the shot of Jason driving an icepick into Alice's head.
Additional bloodflow was cut from the shot of Jason slicing Scott's throat.
Originally, sex scene between Sandra and Jeff was longer and it included full frontal nudity from actress Marta Kober but when Paramount studio discovered that she was underage the scene was deleted completely.
Friday the 13th Part 2: Hard to understand how this become so iconic
I'm currently binge watching the Friday 13th franchise as up until now I'd only ever seen the last two films. I was astounded how generic and lifeless the first movie was and this sequel isn't far off.
Here in Jason Voorhees's debut before he finds his iconic mask he is remarkably bad. What I mean by that is he's a bumbling incompetent fool and a shell of what he is destined to become. A couple of scenes near the end of the film are almost comical because of how bad he is at being a killer.
With mostly cutaway deaths, very thin storyline and little to set it apart from every other camp slasher film I'm starting to wonder how this franchise reached the pinnacle it did as I'm 2 films in and not impressed in the slightest.
Follows directly on from the original
Jason really used to suck!
Highly generic stuff
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
A person cannot say "Hey you guys" without me thinking of the Goonies
Jason Voorhees weakness is his balls, who knew!?
