Just in case you thought the series couldn't get any more stupid.

It's in three dimensions, and all of them suck.

Even by Part 3 of Jason's slice'n'dice expedition - this no frills horror franchise was running out of steam. 'Part 3' is more of the same - but with a lot less kick

tends to play like Dr. Tongue's 3D House of Hackneyed Sight Gags.

So appallingly, overwhelmingly stupid that it is stupid even by the standards of the Friday the 13th franchise.

The gore is surprisingly suggestive, rather than blatant, and therefore the audience doesn't quite get what it pays for.

Friday the 13th was dreadful and took in more than $17 million. Friday the 13th Part 2 was just as bad and took in more than $10 million. Friday the 13th Part III is terrible, too.

Shot in such a way to capitalize on the brief fad of Reagan-era 3D movies, there's less memorable POV shots from the killer and more images from the perspective of the victims.

With this film, there's more sex, more nudity and more creative kills.

...the casting director continued to find young performers who were wonderfully cute people and woefully bad actors.

Another lousy 3-D gimmick that is just plain laughable on home video.

Not since Psycho has a movie taken such advantage of the phallic nature of slasher horror. [Blu-ray]

its only distinguishing feature is the way that the sharp objects are continually thrust at the camera, before and after skewering the victims

Let's see...13th x 3 = at least 39 beheadings.

The film was shot in 3D and looks pretty bland on video or DVD.

As a tried-and-true slasher film, it has its moments, but ... it grows tedious by the end.

It was great on the big screen in 3-D, but there's really no reason to watch it on video

easily the worst film in the series up until that point, partially because it was so redundant, but also because it is the most technically clumsy

Eventually, the novelty wears off, and what remains is the now-familiar spectacle of nice, dumb kids being lopped, chopped and perforated.
