It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of slasher films, and here I've tried to compile a list of…
Friday the 13th Part 3
There's nowhere to hide. We dare you to try.
An idyllic summer turns into a nightmare of unspeakable terror for yet another group of naive counselors. Ignoring Camp Crystal Lake's bloody legacy, one by one they fall victim to the maniacal Jason who stalks them at every turn.
No! You CAN'T be alive!
I'm not sure what is more important, that Jason started his body count in Part 2 or the origins of the hockey mask in Part 3. Maybe it's the fact he started wearing the mask, because it's origins actually involve a character named Shelly (Larry Zerner) who is unbearably annoying. His entire purpose is to instil misdirected scares and apparently constantly try to get people to feel sorry for him. God I hate you Shelly.
Steve Miner returns in the director's chair with a completely new visual effects crew, who get the job done but can't really fill the shoes of their predecessors. They do pull off a great…
Film #3 of Film Play-By-Play (Friday the 13th)
"Hey, the van's on fire!"
-I keep forgetting that this film's in 3D. I forgot my glasses.
-God bless Steve Miner.
-And yet another recap. I feel like I'm watching an episode of Lost.
-Mrs. Voorhees' creepy talking head in a flashback of the last movie teeth.
-There's the short shorts girl. I wonder if anyone will be able to top her in this installment.
-Funky music is playing while Mrs. Voorhees' skull is being shown on screen. I'm not sure whether to dance or be disgusted.
-These rednecks sound like they're from New York. Are there rednecks in New York?…
I'm not sure if these are getting increasingly worse because: A. that's just the way they are, or B. I'm getting tired of the concept already.
I'm already not a big fan of brute force slashers.
The kind of slashers where the killer relies on immortality over brain.
I've always been leaning more towards the cunning and clever serial killers. They're usually forced to get very creative, and the movies won't start out with: "and then he resurrected, because he was an immortal beast of unknown origin."
Back to Friday The 13th Part 3.
While it got a bit bloodier, the 3D "effects" made me want to walk right over and switch it off. It reminded me a little bit…
I really hate these recaps at the beginning of each movie. I hope they're not common in the series. As for the movies themselves, I'm starting to get bored by them as it seems I'm watching the same one over and over again. Maybe the quality of this one is higher than the second or the first but it comes after those two so it's just redoing the same things slightly different, making the whole series (so far) feel extremely bland and progressively more boring, even by slasher standards. At least the Halloween movies tried different things in almost each movie. Here, the first three are basically the same. But yes, the hockey mask and the last third are decent.
Rick ain't no Paul, his eye-popping charm & good looks will only get him so far. Jason owes Shelly a beer for lending him his hockey mask. Chris is my favorite of the first 3 "final girls." Awesome Fangoria Tom Savini homage. Jason looks so badass in the first shot of him on the pier in his mask. Ali! Ali! Ali!
By '82 Paramount had perfected the Jason engine and had a well-oiled runaway tractor-trailer of full-blown 80s cheese barreling out the wazoo. This is the one where Jason becomes a superhuman and the seeds of anti-heroism are planted slightly and unintentionally. The manboy has become a bit of a badass for the first time. Every single cliche and trope and repeated plot beat is here and to an umpteenth level of gratuitousness, but it is one of more gloriously fun entries for these lower depths of shamelessness it takes you. It's not a bad looking movie at all either. If someone asked me to pick a quintessential "80s slasher" in aesthetic, mood and content, I'd probably narrow it down to Friday the 13th Part 3 and maybe one or two others.
Better than the first two parts with some enjoyable slasher moments but held back by its reliance on stupid gimmicky 3D tricks that make zero sense watching them at home in 2D.
I Like 1982's Friday The 13th Part 3, I Like It Because It's Turning 34 Years Old In 2016.
In stunning 2D!
To be honest, I'm quite certain that this movie was made only for the 3D and that they tried to find deaths to add to the 3D.
I mean, there's no tensions at all? Too many characters that died without being scared at all. I found it quite lame actually. And it was less scary than its predecessors.
But I had a lot of fun finding every little aspect that made no sense.
This movie is absolutely gorgeous in 3-D
A movie like this is almost impossible to rate. Make no mistake, it's terrible, but... It's fun. Let's just say it's spookily good-bad.
Again a good one.
Jason finds his now iconic mask and does what he does best chop up horny teenagers.
