THE UNUSED ENDING
According to the FRIDAY THE 13TH Wiki, the director of Part 2 shot an unused ending where right after Ginny asked about Paul the scene shifts to Mrs Voorhees’ head which opens its eyes and smiles. Somehow that was supposed to be a clear indicator that not only was Paul dead but that “evil will never die”. Thankfully everyone involved realized just how stupid that ending would be and scrapped it but even if they hadn’t I really don’t see how that was supposed to let anyone know that Paul was dead. Maybe if there was a shot of Paul’s corpse right before Pam’s head woke up it would have been a different story but with or without the unused ending Paul’s fate is still a question mark.
