Go behind the scenes and learn what went on during the making of the 1981 Horror / Occult movie starring Amy Steel, Warrington Gillette, John Furey et al.

A shot of the infamous double-impalement was cut to avoid an "X" rating, yet a still of this censored shot appears on the back of the videocassette box.

The lead character Ginny Field was named after Virginia Field, who was the production designer on both the first two Friday the 13th films.
Rewind Archive
Steve (Stephen) Miner, a co-producer on part 1, was given the director's reigns for part 2 as Sean Cunningham (director of part 1) had no connection to this film. Though several Cunningham kin have production jobs on part 2.
Rewind Archive
Actress Amy Steel nicked a Jason stuntman's hand with a real machete, nearly cutting off his finger.
Rewind Archive
The production crew forgot to score a window to break on impact, and Jason actor Warrington Gilette slammed into it and bounced off it, slightly injured.
That story about John Furey quitting is 100rong. I asked Stu Charno (Ted) about this and he confirmed it is not true.
Deleted Scenes
When movies are made, scenes are often left on the cutting room floor.
Alternate Versions
Sometimes, there will be several versions of a movie floating about on cable, tv or video etc. Other times, a Director may release a special cut of the movie.
