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.
It is believed that had Paramount not agreed to finance this film and the following sequels, Warner Bros., who distributed the first film outside the US with great success, were willing to step in and take over. See more »
In the first movie, there were several cabins made of solid wooden panels. But five years later, only a single cabin remains and it's pieced together from random pieces of tin siding. It's supposed to be one of the original cabins, indicated by the broken toilet with wrecked plumbing. See more »
You're gonna have to keep your people away from that place, Holt. It's condemned. Next time I catch anybody over there, I'm gonna have to run them in.
Uh, he told us that...
I'll handle this, Jeff.
Might even get a warrant against you.
Look, Holt. People say that what you do with these kids is great. You got a good reputation. But if I was you, I'd have located in the next county. You're too close. Things have been quiet for five years and that's the way we want to keep it.

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.
This film launched the career of this actor, who was the first to play Jason Voorhees. Scenes from the first film are shown before the logo appears. Then the film starts. The debut of Jason is a classic among horror fans. The hockey mask won't make its debut until the 3d sequel came out a year later.
