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…
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…
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!
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 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.
Saw this and I think it so far the worst Friday the 13th film in the series. I was thinking since the mask comes into play on this one the film would be awesome but it really not. The scares were really dumb compared to the second part. The characters were all pretty bad and there wasn't a single character in this film I cared about at all for. The story meh and the soundtrack had me saying what the hell were they thinking there. Very curious to how the other sequels end up being.
Third Friday 13th film in a row! Really not very good. The character who survives this one really has nothing going for her and just screams all the time. I don't even remember her name. Surprisingly there are some good characters in this one aside from her - none given enough screen time or a chance to breathe (hah!) and, like I said, the boring ones last till the end.
A problem for me was, as this was shot in 3D, the amount of scenes where stuff is flung at the camera got tiring quick. At least try and give shots context!
There are some good deaths - especially the guy who walks on his hands - He'll not be walking again!
Oh, and an extra star for that pop out 3D eyeball!
Finally the mask!
I found the 3D bits distracting and did not add much. MY least favorite of the 1st 4 movies.
October Horror Marathon 2014
Posiblemente la más icónica dentro de la saga, ya que en ella es en la que finalmente vemos definido al Jason que todos conocemos. Desgraciadamente no es ni de cerca la mejor de todas.
Algunos personajes, por no decir todos, son bastante odiosos y es complicado enfatizar con ellos, especialmente, y lo siento por ello, con Shelly, el chico rarito y al que mucho hay que agradecerle.
Su historia es también más pobre, especialmente en ese intento de darle un trasfondo a la protagonista (la menos definida de toda la saga por cierto), que queda un poco confuso y que casi parece ir en contra de la psicología de Jason.
Tampoco tiene esa mejoría técnica de la anterior, aunque si…
The characters are so grating and the acting so awful, everybody really couldn't die soon enough. Unfortunately they don't and this 95 minute movie feels endless. Worst gore effects yet and despite the debut of the hockey mask, Jason has never seemed less menacing.
I saw this about three months ago and remember basically nothing about it other than a feeling of boredom for much of the film.
the majority of the acting in this was so bad goodbye
