Gee guess what happens here? Well since the death of Jason's Mom Jason has been busy bumping off teens who can't seem to learn to stay away from Camp Crystal Lake. This time around Jason doesn't have his mask yet (rather a bag over his head for some reason) and there aren't as many tricks nor is there much in the way of creativity but it gets the point across. Also to differentiate this film from the many others, this is the one where the victims (aka teenagers) are out near Camp Crystal Lake for camp councelor training (who ever heard of such a thing I wonder?) It does a nice job with the ending which I shan't spoil but I at least remember it (even though there are ten or eleven if you count "Freddy vs. Jason" of these films). If you liked the first one then you might as well keep going, it's a decent sequel that is engaging and well full of blood.
