#41 - "Friday the 13th Part 2" (1981) with Charlie Cotter

#41 -

Horror sequels are tricky business. As critic Tasha Robinson notes in an essay for The Dissolve, “Horror sequels are the exact opposite of horror. Horror is about exploiting the fear of the unknown, but sequels are about capitalizing on the familiar.” So horror sequels must find the balance between delivering more of the same to audiences but also something unknown. How well does this 80’s horror flick sequel meet the criteria? Let’s find out as Tim Williams and guest co-host, Charlie Cotter, return to Crystal Lake to discuss “Friday the 13th Part 2” from 1981 on this episode of the 80’s Flick Flashback!

Here are some additional behind the scenes trivia we were unable to cover in this episode:

  • Jason in this film is dressed to look exactly the same as the hooded, burlap sack killer from The Town That Dreaded Sundown (1976). The only difference is that the burlap sack he wears has only one eye hole, and his shirt has a slightly different plaid design. According to co-producer Dennis Stuart Murphy, the idea to have Jason wear a burlap sack over his head in Part 2 came from their costume designer, who figured it was the type of readily available item Jason could have conceivably and easily procured.
