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.
“Who are you? What are you doing? Hey, cut that out, that’s not funny!”
Imagine, if you will, that you are a feral man-beast who has lived nearly your entire life in a remote wood, your only animating emotions being fear and anger. Imagine further that you have just completed a remarkably successful killing spree—your lack of formal education and human interaction apparently not having stunted your evasive maneuvers or way with instruments both blunt and bladed. Police have arrived on the scene, collecting bodies and escorting the sole survivor of your rampage to the local hospital, and you have been injured, said sole survivor having proven pluckier than you might have imagined. What, exactly, is your next move?
Though the series still exists only to cinematically knock off twentysomethings in gruesome ways while avoiding engaging narratives, Steve Miner's "Friday the 13th Part 3" finds the still-fresh horror franchise gaining some traction. The formula remains the same, but the filmmaking and storytelling are tighter this time around. It may not be great, but the third entry into the slasher series works better than the previous chapters.
What little story there is here simply retreads that from the first two films: questionable-decision-making young people find themselves at a lakeside retreat where they are stalked by a masked killer. The narrative is without twists or mystery, but it adds a touch of self-awareness and character to the murderous mayhem.
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…
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!
In 1982, the third instalment of the popular Friday series was released. This time, Jason returns to terrorise a group of teenagers on their vacation. Directed by Steve Miner, Friday the 13th Part III may not be the best of the series, but it's still a lot of fun, especially if you're a Jason fan.
The film takes place after the events of Friday the 13th Part 2, where we see the news of Ginny miraculously escaping from the hands of the demented Jason Voorhees. This happens while Chris and her friends make their way to a vacation house where they plan on spending some time there. Meanwhile, Jason has healed his wounds and restarted his killing spree by killing…
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?…
Con un 3D inservibile e poco sangue #Fridaythe13thPart3 toppa di brutto. Jason si mette la maschera. Forse perché si vergognava persino lui.
Jason ist tot und es sollte Ruhe am Crystal Lake einkehren, doch als in der Nähe des Sees ein älteres Paar ermordert wird, scheint alles auf Anfang gestellt. Das trifft sich gut, denn längst ist eine neue Gruppe sündiger Jugendlicher auf dem Weg zum See im Wald.
Zunächst die Neuerungen in Teil 3. Der Film wurde in 3D gedreht und das wird dem Zuschauer permanent vor Augen gehalten. Scheinbar wusste man nicht so recht mit den technischen Mitteln gekonnt umzugehen und hatte einfach die Idee, diverse Füllszenen zu drehen um den Fortschritt zu präsentieren. Da wird eine Baseballkeule ins Bild gehalten, in die Kamera jongliert und Jason darf seine Mordwerkzeuge ebenfalls ausufernd ins Bild halten. Und der Jojo erst! Der…
The debut of the hockey mask. That's the only new idea in this film in which a hulking Jason Vorhees encounters more obnoxious and sexually active teens and handily chops 'em to bits, but gets defeated by the most sensitive and chaste girl of the group. The gore scenes come and go in a flash—they were trimmed to avoid an "X" rating—with the highlight being the crushed head, complete with an eye that pops out at the camera.
This is the first movie of the series in which Jason gets killed. In fact, the producers originally thought this would be the final Friday the 13th, but NOPE. This thing made too much money. Jason had to rise again for a…
Ok, this is bad. Very bad. But the ending is pure-genious-crazy. These guys keep coming with amazing endings for "Friday the 13th". So if you are into horror my advice is this: skip the film, just go to the last 10-15 minutes.
A significantly more entertaining sequel than the second one is. It's taken me a while to warm up to the Jason Vorhees phenomenon (I'm a Pam fan) but this film has sold me. This sequel hits all the right 80s teen slasher buttons and actually feels like it could've be a successful stand-alone flick, unrelated to the Friday franchise. It has memorable kills, a few quirky characters, horny teenagers, and features a Fangoria magazine at one point. Sold!
Aquele com o saco de pano na cabeça
It is been a long time since I've seen this installment in my beloved slasher series. I actually put in the 3-D disc with the classic red and blue glasses and it works much better than I remembered.The silliness of this version foreshadows what is to come with the late movies in the series but the effects are still strong and who can resist Jason donning in the hockey mask for the first time.
this is the first friday the 13th movie i ever watched, and its also the first one with hockey mask jason. pretty great and cheesy
So far the best film in the franchise, with memorable characters, music, kill scenes, and some more good suspense. I recommend this one.
