Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981)


A decent sequel for being released less than a year from it’s predecessor.  Jason takes over for his mother as chief camp counselor decimator.  Despite it’s confusing ending, it delivers some good scares and a Jason that runs, which is always a good thing in my book.  And apparently Jason has the same stylist as the Phantom Killer in The Town That Dreaded Sundown, but who’s keeping score.



Friday the 13th Part 2 was filmed in New Preston, Waterbury, and Kent, CT


Location: Alice Hardy's House
Address: 47 Central Ave, Waterbury, CT



The Itsy-Bitsy Spider…










Location: Jeff & Sandra Roll Into Town
Address: 9 East Shore Rd, New Preston, CT


Jeff parks the truck here.







The pay phone was here...


Crazy Ralph spots Jeff and Sandra.



Jeff's truck gets towed passed these buildings.








Jeff and Sandra run around the corner.


Although it's not seen in the movie, here is the hill they run up.




Ted welcomes them to God's Country.






Location: The Camp
Address: 65 Kenmont Rd, Kent, CT

Unfortunately the cabins were torn down a few years ago but here is the entrance to the camp and the lake.












Location: Jason Runs Across the Road
Address: Kent, CT

I'm not sure about this, but it looks like the road when Jason runs across and the cop chases him.  I thought it would be the road that lead up to the camp, but it was pretty curvy.  Unfortunately I don't remember the name of the street except that it was on the way from the camp address to where Jeff and Sandra roll into town.
