Friday the 13th Part 3 (1982) Review:

This third episode of Friday the 13th is in the pure tradition of the saga, showing a group of young people, including mostly hot chicks, going to camp in the woods nearby Crystal Camp. As in all the Friday the 13th’s films, they are then getting gruesomely murdered one after the other…and this time, there is no questioning who the killer is. Despite the fact that he is not shown during the first 50 minutes, the DVD’s cover, as well as the synopsis, do not lie in telling that Jason is back. This sequel is not even trying to build a story or add something different to the franchise. Instead, it just takes the same elements that worked so well in the first two movies and starts all over again.

As for the characters, they are the exact same bunch of teens that you would find in the first two films. Similarly, the story is once more centered on a young girl who is the main character and who will defeat Jason, so expect no surprise from the victim side. However, in this one, Jason starts to be the Jason that we all know, wearing his famous hockey mask for the first time! Jason is also more brutal, looking bigger and more resistant. It is the film in which you start to have hints on the fact that he is invincible.

I found the end to be a little awkward. It brings something interesting to the film but it is too supernatural for a slasher of this type. Still, Part 3 remains my favorite of all the franchise, just because of Jason’s brutality!
