Friday the 13th: Part 3D (1982)
| Directed by:
Jason is back, to mutilate a group of
weed smoking, horny teens at a farm near Crystal Lake. He also finds his
first hockey mask…
Hit me baby one more time. Jason is back and he’s as loony as ever. From
the opening "disco" Friday theme, to the suspense filled ending
this film had me by the jewels and wouldn’t let up. This flick was
released in theaters in 3D and I had the chance of seeing it on the big
screen in 3D a year ago, it was amazing. All the stuff they throw at the
screen (yo yo, pitchfork, eyeball, popcorn) made sense in 3D and was lots
This entry has lots of
ingredients that the later sequels lost along the way. We’ll start with
Jason. In this one he comes across as a retarded,
murdering/pervert/rapist. He seems to be loving his job, having fun
opposite being pissed off (like in the later sequels). He’s totally
insane and scared the crap out of me. At this stage in the series, we’re
not rooting for Jason yet (I started rooting for him with Part 6). The
characters/victims are a tad more developed than in the later entries
(well some of them) and I was actually afraid for them. Some of the stalk
scenes are a bit overlong, but the payoffs are worth it. Part 3 was
released in a time when good gore was still somewhat fashionable and we
get some nice moments (loved the eyeball popping scene).
We get a lot of the
familiar with a few new things tossed in: Yes the teens are still horny,
yes they smoke lots of weed (more than usual in this one) and yes that old
guy that warns people is there again (he’s always there). But on this
ride the teens are more likeable, the heroine has a past with Jason, Jason’s
name and backstory is never revealed, Jason puts on his first hockey mask
(historical moment), Jason gets to kill a group of poser bikers (funny
shite) and we also get a murder sequence with echoes of "The Boy Who
Cried Wolf" when it comes to that funny dude’s demise…Shelly.
This film ain't
high art. It’s a slasher flick. If you don’t dig em, don’t bother
watching em. The film does follow the generic slasher rules and the
surprises are minimum if you know your shite (the false ending is
identical to the one in the original) A lot of it is recycled but it’s
still a good slasher flick. Put on your hockey mask and lets kill some
make this fast. All the actors are decent. Special commendation goes to
Larry Zerner (Shelly) who plays one of the more developed victim to ever
grace a Friday The 13th and on a negative vibe to Paul Kratka
(Rick) who gives us a whiny, wimpy, wannabe tough guy performance. I
cheered when he got his just dessert. Dana Kimbell (Chris) the heroine
does good but I couldn’t help remember what she once said in an
interview: "I was not wild about the gore and the sexual stuff, so I
talked to the producer and a lot of those elements were eliminated or
curbed". A traitor in the fold my friends. This is Friday The 13th
Part 3 not Murder She Wrote you dummy…mind your own business girl!!!!!
Speargun in the eye, knifings but my fav is without a doubt the guy that
gets machete in half…wow…in 3D it looks even better. I will never do
Some light tittie stuff…
Miner does well, managing to build the occasional tension, some mood and
giving us really great shots in the final battle.
The opening disco stuff is worth the price of rental alone.
This film works on two levels. A: It’s a straight slasher
flick with gory kills and a creepy villain. B: It’s a funny piece of
horror pop culture, with 3D shots, a funky score, bad fashion and
unintentionally funny over the top gory bits that will crack your arse up.
I had forgotten that Jason was once scary, that he wasn’t always the
hero…this film reminded me. For all of you who accuse Mr. Voorhees of
being a Michael Myers clone…see this film. Apart from the fact that they
both like to kill people they are very different. Friday The 13th
Part 3 is a Jason’s fan wet dream, the scene where Chris is in the boat
and Jason is in the window getting all excited is scarier than all of
Halloween 2. Lets give Jason some respect, cause with this entry, he
The mask theory: Rumor has it that the special effect crew was
Canadian and it was their idea to slap a hockey mask on Jason, to salute
their hockey loving country… Canada.
Steve Minor has a cameo as a
following scenes were cut to avoid an "X" rating from the MPAA:
The death scene of Andy showed his
right leg and stomach being cut apart.
Vera's death was longer, it included
more blood and a shot of her reaction. It was cut because the board said
that it looked to real.
A different ending in which Chris,
is killed by Jason. Instead of being attacked in the water by his mother,
Chris axes Jason in the head and goes out to lay in the canoe. The night
becomes dawn and Chris gets out of the canoe to go back into the cabin.
Chris walks up to the front door and opens it. Right there in the door is
Jason with an axe in his hand. He grabs Chris by her hair and slices her
head clean off of her shoulders.
Theatrical prints in Canada omit two
scenes which are found in the U.S. prints:
A scene which simulates the film
projector reel suddenly breaking, and a shadowy figure appearing behind
the movie screen.
When the police investigate Jason's
dead body in the barn and his fingers begin to suddenly twitch.
