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?
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!
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.
Of all the films in the Friday the 13th series, I've probably seen parts 3 and Jason Goes to Hell the least, after realizing yesterday that I could barely remember what happened in this movie, it was time to give it another watch.
As the eventual victims are being introduced, I can't get over how rapey no-neck Rick is towards Chris and then I'm even more flustered at the fact that I can barely tell the women apart.
Even though Jason Voorhees is much more human in Friday the 13th part 3 (especially with all the scenes where we see the face only a mother could love), of all the sequels, this one in particular doesn't have much of a…
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 tribute to Tom Savini's…
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…
On the negative side, the first act drags and there's zero suspense also the characters suck. On the plus side, the kills are violent, the girls are pretty (brunettes!), & the exciting climax ranks among the best in the series. But, really this works, by far, it's best In 3D.
I love this movie, its campy and ridiculous in all the best ways. Strangely however I really feel invested in the characters each time I watch the film and unlike most horror fans I never route for the killer in these movies I'm always hoping the kids make it out. However they don't, and they do manage to find some pretty spectacular ways to dispatch them. BEWARE THE BARN OF DEATH!
The one where Jason becomes a horror icon. In 3D.

Ali: You son of a bitch! Come back here you bastards! You ain't getting away with this, God dammit!
Shelly: Oh, shit.
Vera Sanchez: "Oh, shit" is right! Let's get outta here!
The good thing about this series is it doesn't take itself seriously. It knows exactly what it is and that is fun.

Movie 2 in Hoop-tober 2.O.
For the most part is ok. The whole 3d bit makes it gimmicky and dated, although is also charming to some extent. The acting goes from bad to meh to ok. Most of the characters are generic and bland and oddly enough the only one with any attempt for depth or layers is Shelly.
The kills are not as good as part 2, although there are few good ones, the tension is not as good either. The end is good despite the last moment, when the movie lost me because it basically just rehash the end of the first one.
Goofier than the previous films, its mostly ok, bust is more generic and reuses way too many things from the other movies.

The score is great and we finally get the hockey mask. I bet this was fun to see in 3D with a huge crowd. Unfortunately it doesn't hold up well on home video.
This is the first we get of the iconic Jason Vorhees.This is hockey mask and Knife Jason.He has a very interesting development.It takes him a while to get to this look,and I have feeling this isn't the end of of his transformation (I'm really not that familiar with what's to come.)
This is a 3d movie,and it has old school 3d written all over it.All the 3D tricks are there.From the yo-yo and the passing of a joint through the screen to the fist pointing at the camera and both ends of sharp objects.It's campy but fun to point out.
Then there's the teenagers. Man these teenagers are really dumb.The stuff they get themselves into is pretty impressive.I really don't understand why they would go to a place they know a killer roamed,but if they didn't we wouldn't have a movie.
It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of slasher films, and here I've tried to compile a list of…
