May 01 1981:
A sequel to one of the biggest surprises of 1980 hits theaters! With the villain Pamela Voorhees (Betsy Palmer) slain in the previous film, the world would now be introduced to a character that would take the world by storm and become a cult phenomenon. JASON VOORHEES. Part 2 went on to make over $21 million, a nice amount for the early ’80s. This film set in motion an almost religious-like following of Jason fans!
