Friday the 13th Part 3

Critics Consensus

Jason may solidify his iconic wardrobe in this entry, but Friday the 13th Part 3 lacks any other distinguishing features, relying on a tired formula of stab and repeat.

Movie Info

The third installment in the "Friday the 13th" series picks up on the day after the carnage with homicidal maniac Jason Voorhees (Richard Brooker) stealing some clothes and killing a local store owner. Meanwhile, Chris (Dana Kimmell) and her sometimes boyfriend, Rick (Paul Kratka), are hosting a group of teenage friends at Chris' lake house. Despite a run-in with a local biker gang, they enjoy an amiable weekend together -- that is, until Jason begins knocking off kids and bikers alike.

    Part 3 Or better known as the one Jason finds his trademark hockey mask, The film itself is just the same, Only shot in 3D which I wasn't born when it came into cinema in 3D so I can't comment on that, The pace is much better than the second and the kills are pretty good but what's with all the crazy dreams at the end of these films? They don't help wrapping your head around what's real and what isn't, But anyway if you liked the first two then Part 3 will please fans.

    Jason gets his trademark hockey mask, the deaths are gorier (despite the cuts to avoid an X rating), the music is even worse than before and there are cheap scares all over this stupid, overwhelmingly brainless piece of junk that even copies the end of the first movie.

    Friday the 13th Part 3 in 3D attempts to deliver a new dimension of terror. Jason continues to clean up Crystal Lake, this time by taking out a group of teenagers vacationing at a lake house. The story is complete garbage and doesn't make any sense. And the acting is atrociously bad, but not as bad as the cheesy 3D effects (which are incredibly obvious and distracting). However, Jason receives his iconic look in this film, finally donning his trademark hockey mask and arming himself with a machete. A poorly made horror film, Friday the 13th Part 3 fails to live up to its predecessors.

    Showing the lackluster nature of 3D at its most primal state, with every single object, whether shovel handle or knife, getting "projected" at the audience, Friday the 13th Part 3 is as generic as you can get when dealing with both slasher films or 3D films. The kills are unexciting, the chasing passes the point of bearable, and the sex is completely drained from the series. Reading about what was cut in order to keep this film from getting an "X" rating, I feel that it would be a much better film had those moments been re-added.
