Decided to get in one more Friday the 13th movie and this one reminded me why it’s not high on my list in the series, though I liked portions of it, just nothing involving Shelly and watching it in 2D, the shots made for 3D are pretty annoying. I will say, I did like the lead actress and I’m a fan of the hockey mask Jason. **3.0/5**
***Somewhat fun and entertaining, but adds campiness and bad writing***
The first two films from 1980-1981 are serious in nature with the expected antics of youths at a remote camp, but the franchise introduced a campy element with this third installment, which pretty much plagued the rest of the series until the reboot in 2009. Not that I’m complaining much, as these films are only quasi-believable anyway.
Still, this is the main detriment of “Part III,” released in 1982. The opening credits song tips the viewer off that this isn’t a wholly serious horror film (like the first two), which is compounded when a couple of the protagonists meet some sinister bikers at a convenience store in the boonies, which takes place about 25 minutes into the story. These hoodlums are too cartoonish to take serious and so it’s hard to take the horror seriously either. This doesn’t mean it’s not entertaining in some ways, just that it’s my least favorite installment.
The dubious writing doesn’t help. For instance, why does Fox go into the barn? Speaking of that dang barn, why on earth are so many characters preoccupied with it? It’s like the writer wanted to come up with any possible excuse to use the barn as a focal point. Also, why does Vera leave Shelly to go outside and hangout by herself? I realize she probably wanted to get away from the pathetic guy, but she informs him that she’s going to go outside with a sense of purpose and come back in, but she really doesn’t do much outside. Sequences like this reflect lame writing.
Another noticeable difference between Part III and the two previous films is that, although the story takes place in the area of Crystal Lake, the film was shot in Southern Cal instead of the East Coast, specifically Santa Clarita, CA, and nearby Melody Ranch (where the barn is located). The geography is obviously dryer and the contrast in setting is too glaring. While it could be argued that the different environment provides a nice change of tone, the setting seems too one-dimensional.
As usual with the series, the film thankfully features a nice assortment of females: three white girls, a Hispanic and a black woman, the latter being the biker chick, Fox. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but the main protagonist, Chris, played by Dana Kimmell, is probably it, followed by the stoner chick, Chili; not to mention Debbie and Vera (Debbie has a quality bikini scene).
BOTTOM LINE: Part III is entertaining in some ways and is notable for switching the filming locations to dry Southern California, not to mention Jason is bigger and more imposing than in Part II and he finally acquires his iconic hockey mask. Yet it’s my least favorite of the franchise due to the goofy elements, the subpar writing and the limited setting with too much focus on a freakin’ barn.
The film runs 95 minutes.
Not As Good As Part 2.
In “Friday the 13th Part 3: 3-D”, Jason has returned again for more teenage slaughter. This time he’s targeting some teenagers who are spending the weekend in a summerhouse near Camp Crystal Lake, like he does in almost every sequel that follows this one.
I will say that I haven’t seen this movie in it’s original 3-D format, I saw it on DVD, so I’m guessing it was much better in 3-D than it is in 2-D. I enjoyed “Friday the 13th Part 2” better than “Part 3”. This film does have some slightly suspenseful moments, and the acting is downright awful, which really doesn’t matter because this is a “Friday the 13th” sequel. But still, this one didn’t work for me.
When I see these movies I don’t expect top notch acting. Also some of the killings have horrible effects jobs and they look worse than fake. It has the horror elements in there, but it still isn’t nearly as good as Part 2. I think the best thing about this movie is that it was the first of all of the sequels to introduce the infamous “hockey mask”, which is now iconic. Not to mention, the original theater release was in 3-D. 5/10.
Amazing n uproarious 3D eyeball horror scene but too much of time gaps between kills.
I first saw this in the late 80s on a vhs. Revisited it recently. Terrible screenplay n wots the obsession with the barn. Wot happened to the woods. Again 6 mins r spent in showing the flashbacks of the previous installment. The film directly picks up aft the events of the previous one. The first murder takes place aft 15 mins n that too aft creating unnecessary hide n seek kinda tension. Then again the film bores us for another 30 mins before the kills. It has some lovely locations n settings. There r no good chicks, the lead actor is Powers Boothe lookalike who gets his skull crushed.
It has the same cliche wher the final girl injures the assailant not once bt twice, but rather than killing him off completely, she runs away. Wait, the third time she really makes the effort to kill him. Towards the end, a hooligan who luckily survived earlier, enters the scene jus to get hacked to pieces. Okay this is the part wher he gets his iconic hockey mask n it has two good kills n both of the eyeballs. Check out the lol 3D eyeball pop out scene. (Drag me to Hell n Evil Dead comes to mind). The screenplay sucks big time. The lead actres narrates her story which doesn’t connect the dots cos Jason never takes hostages or victims, he simply butchers em. This part too doesn’t have Savini as the effects guy but his name crops up in the Fangoria mag one character reads before her death.
