I watched Friday the 13th part 2 last Friday the 13th, and I'm pretty sure Muffin was killed in the film. The animal/dog the two characters find while venturing near Camp Crystal Lake certainly looked a lot like Muffin in the brief up close shot of the animal. It even had the little bow in its hair Muffin had if I remember correctly. So the chances of it being a random other dog is highly unlikely given the area and all. There has also always been speculation about it in regards to the ending of the film. But the ending is confusing in many ways, though it certainly is more logical to be a 'dream sequence' than reality. Since if the final scene was reality. Then how did Ginny live if Jason was attacking her? And naturally Paul vanished, and is most likely dead. So what does everyone else think of the fate of Muffin and the ending? Dead or alive? Dream or reality? I do think it's pretty disturbing for Jason to kill a sweet little dog, and was another way of showing how murderous he was, and create a sense of dread before the other characters are slaughtered. So part 2 is actually pretty well made and has some nice atmosphere and build up, more so than I gave it credit for in the past(I usually preferred the original over it, but still liked some things in part 2, and now I like part 2 even more than in the past). I'd love to make a slasher film one day, that has a likable cast, and is full of suspense and dread. So I've been on a kick revisiting classic slashers I hadn't seen in awhile for inspiration. It's fun seeing how they're made/edited and also noticing things I didn't before. Such as how I'm sure much of Ginny's chase near the end was day for night filming, and very professionally done compared to The Burning' day for night scenes(I still love that film as well).
