***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.
Still to this day, the entry with the creepiest looking Jason.
_Final rating:★★½ – Had a lot that appealed to me, didn’t quite work as a whole._
The infamous hockey mask stars for the first time
An Idyllic summer turns into a nightmare of unspeakable terror for yet another group of naive counsellors. Ignoring Camp Crystal Lake’s bloody legacy, one by one they fall victim to the maniacal Jason who stalks them at every turn. Friday the 13th Part 3 will have you frozen with fear, as Jason finds his way into your living room!
This film starred: Dana Kimmell, Paul Kratka & Richard Brooker
In my opinion, this film was not bad compared to the other films, it was better than the first film but not as good as the second. After this film there was 4,5,6,7,8, Jason goes to hell, Jason x and Freddy vs Jason before the remake, yes it’s a long series.
***/***** Good film
My favourite installment so far.
I really enjoyed watching this film. Almost all the time happens the first film of a franchise to be the best, and many times I also had this opinion, but in this case I don’t agree at all.
This film had everything that I’m seeking for a slasher film. The flow of the plot is good, we have more sympathetic characters here, thing which I found very surprising. The protagonist (final girl) is way better than the one of the original film, because of the most important reason: SHE COULD ACT! I hate when they pick actors with no talent at all. Hopefully we don’t have this problem here.
One thing that I didn’t liked the acting skills of a specific actress. The good thing is that she is not the protagonist. I talk about the one that plays Chili. In the first film I didn’t liked at all the acting of the actress who was playing Alice. She was really annoying. In this chapter, we talk about a very bad acting of her, but hilarious too.
The kills were pretty good I can say, not frightening at all. It’s less gory than the first two chapters. Maybe they tried to get rid of the MPAA thing. So the gore is minimal (we mostly see the aftermath), there are many fake and real jump scares, and of course the music score is there.
I really liked one of the last scenes where Jason smiles. I’m not going to say something more, except that it was very creepy.
One of the last scenes contain a reference to the first film. Unnecessary in my opinion.
The only thing that I didn’t liked, is something that I hate generally in slasher films. Specifically, I talk about the fact that all the characters when they’re attacked, NEVER fight for their lives, except of the final girl, of course. It’s a cliché that must stop.
Overall, I think it’s one of the best (if not the best) film of the series, although I heard many negative reviews, but it’s just my opinion. I generally recommend this franchise, it’s a good classic.
