Friday the 13th parts 2, 3, and 4 all go on in the span of 3 days. It's odd but true. Not to mention, Amy Steel, at the end of part 2, is one of the only ones that lives in any of the movies. Also, Tommy Jarvis is the only one to survive more than one movie.
The killer in this film is dressed to look exactly the same as the killer from The Town That Dreaded Sundown, (1976).

Amy Steel (Ginny) also played one of the lead roles in the horror movie 'April Fool's Day.'
Friday 2 underperformed it's predecessor, only bringing in $21 million dollars, as oppposed to part 1's $37 million.
The trailer for this movie continued part 1's trailer trend of counting up the victims, enticing the audience as to how many killings there would be.
The cabin used for the shooting of part 2 recently sold on eBay for $15,000 (November 2003).
Jason was actually played by Steve Daskawisz, not Warrington Gillete. Warrington was fired from the film and replaced. The only scene with Warrington in is when Jason bursts through the window at the end. The rest of the movie is Steve.
What follows are trivia items we now believe
are bogus. Some of them will have explanations, some will not. We just leave 'em
in for interest, really.
Jason in the opening scene where Alice gets killed isn't even a man, it's a female production assistant named Jerry Wallace dressed up like Jason.
