FRIDAY THE 13th PART 2 (1981)
So this one pretty much negates the whole premise to the first movie since now Jason Voorhees actually exists which means his mom was killing all those people in that other movie for no reason whatsoever. Of course following some sort of cohesive plotline was never really all that important with this series and that starts right here with the first sequel. Jason wears a sack on his head like The Elephant Man, a double murder/shish-ka-bob killing is ripped off from Mario Bava's BAY OF BLOOD and it's all pretty similar to the first movie. They also get rid of the final girl from the first movie, Adrienne King, and Crazy old Ralph, Walt Gorney, giving that film even less importance. This pretty much sets the standard with the next film giving Jason the final touch when he finds his hockey mask. Pretty standard slasher given more importance than it probably should have just because it's part of this very popular(with horror freaks anyway) series.
