Debaser Film

Friday the 13th Part 2

As I was reminded during the opening recap of this movie (and strangely enough, it’s quite extensive, at like 5-10 minutes), the ending of the first film — that sees Jason jumping out of the water to attack the girl in the boat — is a fantastic sequence, and although most of this film is a bore, I really did get a kick out of the similarly presented climax shot. The fact that I wasn’t expecting it made it that much better (and surprising). I’d say that the last half hour or so of this is decent, as we get to the business of what Jason does best, but it takes a while to get there, and that early journey isn’t really that interesting. But again, kudos on that ending.
