Hit me baby one more time. Jason is back and heâ€™s as loony as ever. From the opening "disco" Friday theme, to the suspense filled ending this film had me by the jewels and wouldnâ€™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 of fun.
This entry has lots of ingredients that the later sequels lost along the way. Weâ€™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). Heâ€™s totally insane and scared the crap out of me. At this stage in the series, weâ€™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) with witty dialogue in tow 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 (heâ€™s always there). But on this ride the teens are more likeable, the heroine has a past with Jason, Jasonâ€™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 dudeâ€™s demiseâ€¦Shelly.
This film ain't high art. Itâ€™s a slasher flick. If you donâ€™t dig em, donâ€™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 itâ€™s still a solid slasher flick. Put on your hockey mask and lets kill some teensâ€¦
