Maybe I will go in order, maybe I won’t. I watched this last night, after I had watched Parts 3 and 4 days before. We all know that series continuity has never been a strong point of the franchise, so who cares? Plus, it’s always really annoying to sit through those endless recaps after you’ve just watched the previous movie.
Friday the 13th Part II
Worst Line: “This place is spooky.” Bad for 2 reasons. 1—The sunlit forest she’s referring to is anything but spooky. 2—She proceeds to wander into the “spooky” woods by herself.
Best Line: “Paul, there’s someone in this room…Paul, there’s someone in the fucking room!”
This is just depressing, but I'm so glad they went there.
Huh? Moment: Genni pees herself. A moment of seriousness. This Friday is definitely less fun than the others, but I don’t mean that in a bad way.
LOL: The return of muffin, the dog with the bow in the hair, at the end of the movie accompanied by an “all is well again” musical piece.
Like they say in Baghead:
This could be the scariest thing you've seen or the silliest.
What I like: I really dig the crazed, wild man version of Jason Voorhees. Before Jason had all this lore surrounding him, it’s cool to see a completely different version of the Camp Crystal Lake killer. I wonder what it would be like if there was ever a “reimagining” of this Jason.
I think this scene was in an old car commercial that featured other scenes where the car won't start from horror movies. Anyone know who made it or where I can find it?
Is it Scary?: Sometimes. Unlike other Fridays, this has some genuinely scary moments. I believe Steve Miner’s direction here is one of the best in the series, with long steady cam shots and an excellent use of negative space surrounding characters. The aforementioned best line is also pretty damn creepy.
