Immediately after his mysterious escape at the end of Friday the 13th, Pt. 2, Jason Vorhees (Richard Brooker, the third of many actors to fill the role) kills a hardscrabble store owner and his nagging wife before heading back to Crystal Lake, this time to terrify rich girl Chris (Dana Kimmell) and her band of summer-cottage guests. Chris, it seems, is haunted by an earlier encounter with Jason, and her romantic entanglements with local boy Rick (Paul Kratka) do little to ease her nightmares.

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.
Eventually, the novelty wears off, and what remains is the now-familiar spectacle of nice, dumb kids being lopped, chopped and perforated.
Not since Psycho has a movie taken such advantage of the phallic nature of slasher horror. [Blu-ray]
...the casting director continued to find young performers who were wonderfully cute people and woefully bad actors.
The gore is surprisingly suggestive, rather than blatant, and therefore the audience doesn't quite get what it pays for.
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.
As a tried-and-true slasher film, it has its moments, but ... it grows tedious by the end.
Funky fresh disco chi chi chi
So appallingly, overwhelmingly stupid that it is stupid even by the standards of the Friday the 13th franchise.
its only distinguishing feature is the way that the sharp objects are continually thrust at the camera, before and after skewering the victims
Another lousy 3-D gimmick that is just plain laughable on home video.
It was great on the big screen in 3-D, but there's really no reason to watch it on video
Without the 3-D it's nothing to get excited about.
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
