Erm I guess this was once in 3D but I've never seen it presented that way, still beware there are several stupid random shots of yoyo's and stuff intended to delight 3D crowds. This one doesn't take place at the camp but rather just outside at a house nearby. A group of prank filled teens (gorgeous girls with less than attractive lads none the less) go to one girl's family cabin for a vacation. Soon the really ugly and unlikeable guy (named Shelly) and another girl get in trouble with a biker gang. Shortly after of course the biker gang turns up at the family cottage for revenge, only it's someone else who gets the revenge (aka guess who's still not dead). Of course Jason runs out of punks and shortly after he's on to our nubile teens. When he kills the awful Shelly Jason gets his hockey mask and history is made! It's just not got any sort of twist or creative problem solving but rather simply yet bloody death after death. The pranks are quite a bit annoying and it takes a little too long to get into the maniacal killing spree but it's definitely an easy to watch sequel. If you are going to go through the series of course you should watch this, but it's definitely one of the least exciting of the set.
