In FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 2, a fun-loving group of hedonistic teens arrive to attend a camp counselor training camp near Crystal Lake. On the first night, while sitting around a campfire, Paul, who is in charge of training the camp counselors, tells of the murders that transpired five years before in a nearby camp, and the rumors that Jason Voorhees, the boy who was thought to have drowned in the 1950s and whose death was being avenged by his mother in the recent killings, still stalks the surrounding woods, killing anyone who crosses his path. He concludes the tale by assuring them that the area is now safe. Two of the counselors, Jeff and Sandra, decide to check out Camp Crystal Lake, now closed, to see firsthand where the killings took place, but they are stopped by a local deputy. After returning them to the camp, the deputy starts to drive back to town, but then sees a mysterious figure crossing the road and into the woods. The deputy goes deep into the woods, where he finds a rundown shack, and as he explores its insides, he's killed with a hammer claw. Meanwhile, while some of the counselors go into town for one last night of fun before the serious training begins, others stay behind and begin to get murdered in the woods or in their beds. Paul and his assistant, Ginny, return to the camp and as they start to realize what happened, Jason appears and chases them into the woods. Ginny discovers the shack in the woods, and inside, sees the shrine Jason has made to his dead mother, with her old clothes and severed head. Now knowing that this killer is in fact Jason, Ginny resorts to a desperate gamble to outsmart Jason and put a stop to the killing.
