Part 3 is fantastic, but any fair assessment of the film has to work in two ways: 1) the movie in its 3D format; and 2) the movie in its home video/DVD format.

I never had the privilege to watch Part 3 in 3D, though I do hope one day I get the chance to see it in 3D...however it does work well even in the home video format, in spite of Larry Zerner's comments that it doesn't mean anything to the people at home.

The dart gun, and Andy and the machete are a couple of very strong examples of how the 3D worked well even in the home video format.

If the movie has an ultimate weakness, its the acting.  A couple of performers in particular (Dana Kimmell comes to mind) overact in some very critical ways, and it doesn't work very well.  A few others (Larry Zerner and Jeffrey Rogers come to mind) are stronger in their roles and are far more convincing.

In terms of where I'd rank Part 3, I'd probably put it at #4 for the movies behind Parts 2, 1 and 6...but certainly ahead of 4, 5, 7 and 8...along with JGTH, JX and FvsJ.

Very good entry, Jason finally gets his hockey mask, there are some great death scenes (and despite some censoring it's not as bad as in other installments so it's still pretty gory), the atmosphere is very eerie and Jason is incredibly scary here, I love the chase scene at the end and the showdown in the barn. Got to love old-school Jason :jason11:

I really did not care that much for part 3 the acting was way bad

best thing about the movie is the Hockey mask & Shelby ;)

He should had be the last one alive!

I cant say i'm a fan of part 3,it's not a bad movie by any means but it just didn't "click" with me for some reason.

I agree with Kyler & Nancy, I hated Part 3 and besides Jason receiving his trademark hockey mask there's not much else to say. Annoying characters and it just felt too rushed. Miner did a great job on Part 2 but seriously bombed on this one.

Well, after Part 2, he did really need a new gimmick...and for sheer scare factor, how do you really improve on Part 2?  I mean, in my opinion, they never have improved upon Part 2.

I still think Part 3, in its 3D format, may help it click with some of you that haven't seen it in that format...but then again, I haven't either, so...

That's one of the main problems with this film. It is meant to be seen in 3D and without most of the FX look horrible.

In some cases, I totally agree.  The eyeball and the snake come to mind as examples of shots where the FX totally let down the audience.

In some cases, the FX seem just overdone.  The popcorn, for instance, seems like an excessive use of the 3D format.

But in some cases, still, I think that the shots work.  The dart gun part is one example of that

Part III sucks compared to II, but it did have a spooky atmosphere, whether in 3-D or 2-D. Brooker makes a great JV.

/\  exactly.  all the chapters were practically the same exactthing, but they were all pretty entertaining which made up for repetitiveness.  except for the last two (not fvj) and the end to JTM (in my opinion)

Part 3 and Part 6 are defintely my favorites. Jason looks and is awesome in this movie. I think Richard Brooker was the best Jason, in my opinion.

I think the idea here was the 'early Jason' was more human than later ones, where he was totally 'zombified'.

Yeah, maybe that is the answer, I think he was human till part 3, and then he turned in the zombie killer we all know and love
Or was he earlier zombie?
I think he is not human anymore after part 3, because, just look at his strenght O_o, I mean punshing a guys head off, launching people with a pole, oh my gosh, über strenght I reckon.

i wonder 'what if this movie never introduced the infamous hockey mask would the F13 series have as many sequels as it has? "  well  the major thing that really bothered me about this movie is that within the story Jason himself is never mentioned by name, none of the characters know the whole camp crystal lake story, we as an audience know thats jason, but  to the characters hes just some crazy killer in a hockey mask.

Well, the acting was atrocious (even for a Friday movie), the characters were entirely one-dimensional and stereotypical (even for a Friday movie), Chris was annoying and unsympathetic, the gore effects look fake, the scenes set up for the 3-D aspect look awful in 2-D, and the ending made no sense whatsoever.

I think part 3 was one of the best in the series, and I actually think Richard Brooker did a good job acting Jason. I especially like the part after he has claimed his legendary mask and shoots the girl with the speargun... he does so in a very gallantly way.
And the ending(s) were great I think. I enjoyed watching this more than watching part 2.

ok, first off, token new guy here, sup everyone. now to my question. Am I the only one who was disturbed at the fact that Debbie was pregnant? I mean I like waching teens get slaughtered as much as annyone, but something just never sat right with me about Debbie beeing pregnant and getting killed. Maybe it's just me.

Post by: Residently EVIL on December 29, 2005, 04:18:59 PM
i've always wondered why they put Debbies name with the word Pregnant in parenthesis in the credits i mean it didn't really go the story. the only thing i can think of is that they wanted to make Jason out to be such a cold blooded bastard murderer that he would even kill a teenaged girl who is pregnant. but Jason doesn't know that so that makes no sense playing that angle. but i have another question: dose the unborn count towards Jason tally of lives taken i mean is he killing for 2 right?

They probably did that because the audience never remembers the character's names, but would remember a character for looking different from the others, like being pregnant. Nothing to do with Jason and the storyline.

 I can never remember the names anyway.:tongue:

In my opinion: No. As long as it's not born it is still a part of the pregnant girl, and that counts as one.

Yea Shelby and that Chong wannabe was the best in the movie the rest suck.

What i do not understand Debbie she is pregnant right and she was gonna drink a beer even if Jason did not kill Debbie she would had kill her baby herself drinking & Smoking so I think Jason did her a fav just kill her then.

One of my favorite scenes in Part 3 is when the white biker guy flicks his cigarrette at Shelley. When you think about it, it takes some serious balls to flick your cig at any stranger. That part had me in hysterics.

I liked the lead biker dude. He put up a fight. I still don't get where he got stabbed the first time he ran into JV. And why did he run into that corner of the barn during that first confrontation? It doesn't make sense.

Rules of horror movies:
You drink alchol, you die
You have sex you die
You smoke pot you die.
The one that was pregnant broke the rule drinking alchol.
So, yeah, she had to die, that is a rule haha.
Even though some people found that a no no, still a rule is a rule. No matter what.

The ending is what makes this my favorite FT13 film.  When she buries the axe in his head/mask, and how it makes you jump when she opens the barn door.  I want to go check out that barn someday, or at least visit visit the original camp crystal lake up in New Jersey

Post by: Kat on May 23, 2006, 01:51:50 PM
This is one of my favorites of the series. Hey, its better then Jason X lol

Sure the acting isn't the greatest, horror movies aren't known for the acting. I hate horror movies that have really bad acting...so to me, if the acting was that bad in this one, I wouldn't be watching it. But of course its going to have its moments. I mean hey, Larry Zerner said himself, this was his only movie so what more do you want for the acting quality

As for the 3D, its just a shame that they made it the way they made it, and went with a different kind of 3D thus making it harder for us to see it in 3D these days. No, I have never seen it in 3D. They showed it a few years ago in CA in 3D and had a lot of the cast there...Larry sent me an email about it, but I don't travel really so I couldnt make it.

Watching the movie the way it is now kills it, the effects make it seem like they were trying way too hard, and a lot of the scenes were just placed in there for the 3D effect - the clothesline pole in the beginning, the popcorn, the snake...etc. So when you watch it on TV or DVD these days it looks quite silly. But if you're like me and grew up on the film, you probably could overlook it

Reasons I like this: Its fun, the characters are fun, the part about them knowning nothing about Jason is a little odd considering it should have been all over the news that he'd been killing people for the last day or so.  But that works too, its a little refreshing that they didn't know who he was.

Honestly, I can' think of one character I don't like in the film. The bikers are kinda annoying, but I'm okay with that.

Part 3 is by far my favorite Jason film.

Getting the Infamous Hockey Mask, actually running after people and just being a downright scary Jason film, made this the best. The fact that Jason also raped that girl (I believe so) made the film much darker.

Plus I believe Ali was such a kickass character who did decent against Jason, until he was bitch slapped. I just love it overall.

Post by: overshoe on June 10, 2006, 12:14:16 PM
i like part 3 a lot.
i dont think its the best but its still very good.i think you have to ignore all the shots thet were deliberately included for the 3d effects.the harpoon coming straight at you is still very good even in 2d but the washing line pole and yo yo etc. can just be dismissed.for me they're not corny enogh to spoil the overall film.
as someone said earlier, we musnt forget that part three gave us the hockey mask and ,for me, thats what makes the big fella so scarey.the make up guys could put buckets full of latex and cg effects on screen and i'd have a quiet chuckle at it before finding faults. but slip on a simple hockey mask and im sleeping with the lights on!
brooker plays a very scarey jason and his hanging scene in the barn (when he pulls himself up on the rope having survived a hanging) is genuinly creepy.
having watched the move several times (you dont notice it first time round) my only critisism is the scene where he grabs the girl through the open window of the car (its the bit shortly before she traps his hands by rolling the glass up and he has to butt his head through to escape). well i dont want mr booker to hurt anyone just to make a good movie but 'come on ' ! he takes a hold of her throat so carefully and gentley it takes the edge off the whole scene.it looks as though hes about to give her a kiss rather than tear her head off. (take a look, its quite obvious when you;re watching out for it.)
that aside, i think its a very good peformance and his version of j.v terrified me as a kid and still un nerves me a little now.
overall i like part 3 , the acting is no worse than in a lot of the other efforts and there are some great,genuinaly scarey j.v moments.
oh !  and just for the record , im sure jason didnt/hasnt raped anyone???
come on hes my favorite bad guy of all time and i think hes bad enough as it is thank you very much !

Post by: VoorheesLover on March 26, 2007, 01:02:21 PM
pt 3 is a classic up there with pt1 because this is where jason gets the hockey mask.

the movie did seem a little rushed, and the characters werent as polished as they could have been, same goes with the acting

if you don't have all the equipment to watch the film in 3d, and didn't get to see it in 3d when it was originally released in the 80s then you might have a hard time with this film...but if you like 80s flicks, and are used to the feel of them and can remember that most of this stuff was supposed to be 3d...then you can get over that and that is not an issue....the death of rick does look pretty fake though...

to be honest, i've never seen a movie in its true 3d format...but one would think that depending on the type of film they wouldn't pick so many stupid things to make 3d (the popcorn, the pole in the begining, etc)

its weird that Chris was attacked awhile before, and plans to vacation there, yet knows nothing of the murders that have taken place, even though they've only been over the last day or two. Shit, I know when i'm going on vacation we check what the weather is going to be like...and you'd think with this large of a mass murder (in pt. 2) it would be all over the news (like we saw in the beginning of pt.3) that she wouldn't want to go back there.

Someone brought up the fact that Debbie was pregnant and she was still killed...well first off Jason wouldn't have known that, and second...in some places, they don't count, or didn't count (depending on the year) the death of a pregnant woman as two murders....in the box set releast they do not say (pregnant) in the credits

The disco theme is pretty neat!

An unborn baby is a living being, man. I know its just a movie, but...... Life is life. :)

So the fetus can crawl out on its own, start up a career and manage its own income?

Oooh, lets not get into this debate lol, its pretty touchy. But to clear something up...

Different states claim different answers for that one anyhow...same with people. And I believe it also depends on how far along the person is in their pregnancy, as to where it 'legally' would be 2 murders instead of one. But again, it all depends on the state.

Okay, I'm fairly new to this forum. Part 3 was the first F13th movie I ever saw, and maybe it's something to do with that that I quite enjoy it. It's certainly one I watch fairly often. I know some people here are a bit critical of the character of Chris and Dana Kimmel's acting, but I really like her. She's certainly gorgeous!

I agree somewhat with the posters who were disturbed by Debbie being pregnant when she died. I don't really like Debbie that much, but I always felt sad for her unborn kid  :(

I thought it was cool when Ali briefly came back at the end to defend Chris, and was a bit disappointed Jason dispatched him so easily. I also reckon that Jason was at his creepiest here; the scene where Chris is on the boat and she sees Jason looking out the window at her quite freaked me out the first time I saw it!

All in all, Part 3 is one of my favourites of the series.

I agree E-Man. I thought the characters were fun. It still remains one of my favorites, probably tied with Pt. 7 for me. That scene with Jason up in the window was pretty creepy.

I personally think that by knowing that Debbie was pregnant we get to see that this type of thing could touch anyone. Jason probably didn't know she was pregnant. I mean, its only mentioned once in the film, and he isn't around. Not to say that they couldn't have been talking about it off screen and he overheard, but I doubt that it would have mattered to him

Yeah, III was awesome in the theater in 3-D, but it was also one of the ones I rented the most. II, III, IV and VI were the ones I rented A LOT in the '80s. I still think that III has a neat pace, and Richard Brooker makes a scary Jason. He and Ted White are quite scary as the character.

What got me is the ending. Chris never knew who the killer was she just knew he attack her before so why would she dream of Mrs Voorhees knocking her out of the boat.

 What was with the ending,

 That corpse that comes out of the lake is really creepy reminded me of the rotting corpse from the film "Ghost Story".

It didn't have quite the same effect as the first film because if you had seen the first film you might have been expecting it. They also mucked it up with a couple of false alarms. It should have come out of the blue. Why would Mrs Voorhees be in the lake?

Post by: LAZARUS on July 01, 2008, 12:05:01 AM
 No its a fair question Killer.

 It may be a dream sequence but why would she dream Mrs Voorhees being in the lake? There was a reason why Jason might be in the lake, he was supposed to have drowned and his body was never recovered. In addition Mrs. Voorhees told Alice the story about her son drowning so his image was in Alice's subconscious.

In Part III they didn't even know who Jason was so they wouldn't know Mrs. Voorhees.

Steve miner came up with the idea,as it says in the making of( Friday the 13th)Basically it worked in the first film so they wanted to use the same formula with the 3rd films ending. They decided that Mrs voorhees would've had to been in the water for many years.

I appreciate it just for the scare factor. I didn't analyze the ending, and I try not to analyze anything. You have to remember, a lot scenes in this series weren't meant to make sense but scare you.

It was just a fun little jump that I think fits well with this movie. Ignoring the errors that were supposed to be hidden behind the 3-D glasses, this is one of the best and the series and probably my favorite.

For some reason, Part 3 feels so modern to me. Like whenever I look back at each of the films, this one just feels modern...something about the characters make it feel as though it is newer, well not newer but you get the idea, than the other films before and after it.

Maybe I'm just weird, whatever.

Oh no no, nothing to do with the video quality or sound, just the atmosphere. Perhaps it's just because all or most of the characters were older, or at least sounded a whole lot older than any others in the rest of the series. No doubt Rick looked like he was over 40.

I think it's mostly the lighting that makes the third film look 'brighter' than the other entries in the series, though I don't believe it's less clear per se. It's just that virtually the first two-thirds of the movie is set in the day or during the evening, whereas all of the others alternate between night and day fairly equally throughout the picture.

jason first appears in friday part 2(besides alices dream in 1).....and he gets struck down through his shoulder with his machete at the end of the 2nd.....but then he scutters away at the beggining of the 3rd....

in my opinion... hes really not dead until the END of the 3rd when he gets whacked in the forehead with an axe...cause thats a fatal blow...i can see someone(other than jason) surviving from the blow sustained in 2... and then he somehow comes back to life in the 4th...

that would have been friggin sweet!!!!!!.. but i noticed(and im sure others).. that they dont even say the neame "jason" throughout the entire movie... leading us to think that none of them know who jason is.. or the story.... so in her dream when jasons mom comes out of the water... it doesnt follow exactly with the "storyline"...  but still.. that would have been an even better to the ending.. help hold it to the story...

Ok, I'm confused on this (bear with me I'm a newbie).  So, someone purchased some 3-d glasses and claims the movie will play back in 3-d at home.  I call bullshit.  I'm not arguing here, but I don't get it.  There are a couple of different ways to get 3-d in the theater, and none of which is available at home to my knowledge.  There are companies pursuing this (Mitsubishi and Samsung) but I was not aware of any software yet.  The "special" glasses communicate with a transmitter placed on the top of the tv and tells the glasses what to do (in essence).  I have seen this in action and it looks great.  I hope I'm wrong as I would love to see this in 3-d...let me know if anyone has seen this in 3-d at home.

The 3D used in Friday pt. 3 is NOT the same kind of 3D as the red glasses. You need a special player, a special copy of the movie, and special glasses. This is the reason it isn't released to normal people in true 3D format

The 3D used in Friday pt. 3 is NOT the same kind of 3D as the red glasses. You need a special player, a special copy of the movie, and special glasses. This is the reason it isn't released to normal people in true 3D format

Are you calling us normal?   :P  Oh, and thanks for the info...

Ive always figured that Chris was a local, as she lived there for along time until Jason attacked her, or "The Disfigured Man" as she called it. So I assumed she would have known that Mrs. Voorhees killed all those people. So when she had the nightmare, of course the one she would have seen would be Mrs. Voorhees. As she moved away before Jason  began his killing spree. There is a very good chance that Jason was not the experienced killer he is today and it is for that reason Chris got away. Although its all a theory. So to her the monster in her dreams would have taken the form of Mrs. Voorhees.

Also. When Pam died Chris may not have known she had her head cut off in the first place, that would explain her in a complete form.

Just a thought to the ending I had.

I've always thought that it was just an homage to the first Friday, except with the role of Jason and Pamela switched of course, now that Jason is the killer.

Wow, what a great discussion! 

First off, I have the set where you watch it at home in 3D.  They are glasses that you have to plug in to the box.  It isn't the best quality but it works.  I got mine off of ebay several years ago.  I saw it at the drive in when I was 13 in 3D and it was much better. It's still fun to have a 3d screening. Mine came with 3 pairs of glasses so a few can watch.   

I saw a few thoughts on Chris's prior attack.  I actually DO believe she was either raped or attacked in some sexual form. The reasons that support this is, Andy says, "What would a weekend be without sex?" And Debbie says "Cool it Andy."  Chris then says what happened to her was a long time ago and she's fine.  There had to be a reason behind all that. Then she is distant with Rick.  Then later, when walking with Debbie, Debbie asks her how things with Rick are going, and Chris says fine, but he doesn't understand. If the other lines weren't in there about the weekend and sex, I wouldn't think anything of this convo, but it supports the whole part of her being attacked. Just my two cents...hehe. 

Regarding the ending, I also felt the lady in the lake was weak. I wish they had kept the original ending with the dream sequence where Chris finds all the bodies in the barn and then Jason chops off her head. That would have been cool to see....maybe one day we will.  It was filmed.  *Crosses fingers for new box set to have something worthwhile.

I still don't really get that- as he looked to be gettin pretty hacked up earlier in the film- i guess the official account was he got "blugeoned"

Anyone else feel like Part 3 has one of the best endings of any of the F-13 films?

The slow pans across the lake, Jason with the axe in his head laying on the ground, etc.  Other than the first film I always felt part 3 had the best ending.

I just got done watching this one again.
There is a scene when Jason is trying to find Chris(is that her name?) in the barn near the end. He unlocks the door, locks it back, and goes to a side room and moves some chairs. As you can guess, he was looking for her. But, after he moved the chairs, he stamps his foot in frustration. It struck me as odd, because that is about the only time I can remember him ever showing emotion.

I was very pleased with the Part 3 in 3D disk.  It wasn't as grand as when I saw it in the theater way back when, but it brought back lots of good memories and it made the film more enjoyable than the standard way of watching it on VHS or DVD for all these years. 

Actually, all 3 reissues are very good ... but I was more than happy with Part 3.  They did a good job putting it together.

When you see it in 3D it's like a completely different film.  Of the first 4 films part 3 is probably the weakest overall film, but seeing it in 3D made it a lot more enjoyable. 

When you watch an old VHS tape or DVD version of Part 3 you can clearly see some of the 3D only gags, but what impressed me were the scenes that were not designed exclusively for 3D.  They really did think about the field of vision and how it would translate into 3D, and by doing that they were more successful than other 3D films that came out at the time.  The forced perspective was great and made the film.

Watched this last night.  It definitely is the worst of the first four films by a landslide.

I feel like this is the first film in the series when they totally jumped onto the Camp Cheesy bandwagon.  (although I loved the dated disco-synth opening theme  :D)

The main heroine was pretty, but I agree with others on here she wasn't very charismatic and her acting is sketchy especially in the scene where she gets in the back of the cop car and does this forced impression of screaming/crying due to trauma.

I'm glad Shelly remembered to pack scuba gear to go to a lake.  Don't we all!

That was ridiculous when Ali after being chopped up multiple times laid around bleeding in the barn all day and had the energy to help Chris try to escape that evening.

If you notice, I found it funny how numerous characters throughout kept being drawn to the barn as if it was some sort of magical wonderland.

The Jason in this film was a classic one and scary looking to boot.

I would have preferred the original ending I read in this post on here.

Rick was so annoying I liked him and his sweater was fantastic.  

I'm surprised the makers of Cheech and Chong didn't sue for using one of their characters LOL.  

I prefer the 2D version better.  The 3D made my eyes hurt a little and the color was off in many scenes.  I have never seen a 3D film work at home.  I have only seen one 3D in theaters, but the effect were fanatastic!  (Jaws 3 in 3D LOL)

It struck me as odd, because that is about the only time I can remember him ever showing emotion.

I think he showed a little in Part 2 when he thought he got his mother back. In Part 4 all he showed was emotion (anger!) in the way he behaved and moved. In Part 7 once the mask was off, with the fire surrounding him, his face expressions had a pissed off look. In FVJ he looked sad when Freddy (posing as his mother) was yelling at him. In the remake he put his head down and morned over his mother. Jason has shown emotions a few times throughout the series. He is a tortured soul who lashes out the only way he knows how. Face it, he grew up in the woods surviving off of animals and the land. He does not have the option of 12 steps or self help or counceling. His formal life was taken from him at the age of 11 and he basically is an animal, like a lion or a tiger.

For sentimental reasons PART III is my fvaorite. It was the first one I saw in the movie theaters & the 3D gimmick had people lined up outside. Unfortunately, I wasn't happy with the 3D deluxe edition. I was able to catch a midnight showing of it in 3D a few years ago & trust me you have not seen this movie until you get a chance to see it on the big screen the way it was meant to be seen. Even that showing was packed-they actually ran out of 3D glasses!! JASON has still got it!!! DANA KIMMELLs acting was cringeworthy at times but I don't blame her because I've seen her in other tv & film projects where she was better. Perhaps with better direction the actors in this film would have done better. Paramount was just in a rush to put this out. And despite its many faults it made a ton of $!!! PART III FOREVER... ;)

Just got through watching this. Hadn't watched it in years. It's always been one of my favorite installments. Like with everything though, time and age gives you a different perspective. The characters do not mesh well at all. Not saying the actors themselves are terrible, but there's really no 'method to the madness' with this group of people. They are all supposedly friends, yet there is no vibe among them to even insinuate that is the case. They basically hang out in groups of two, and even then it's like they are almost total strangers. Even the two closest characters(Debbie and Andy) are more likely to be having a one night stand/fling than the reality that supposedly exists that they are long time boyfriend/girlfriend expecting their first child.

Vera is an even bigger "fifth wheel" than Shelly. At least Shelly does come across as someone they might know. It feels like Vera was picked up hitchhiking along the way.

That biker chick is hot to trot.

Still like the film, but that script definitely needed a major rewrite.

Would also like to add that the whole premise is absurd. Nothing wrong with the characters not knowing who Jason is, but that entire county would have been littered with cops, including the state police. They sort of hint at this at the beginning with the cop car right behind them, but its just ignored after that.

I realize these are popcorn flicks and not really meant to be taken seriously, but let's be real. This takes place immediately after II and Jason would not have had carte blanche over the area.

Might be my 2nd favorite one. It gets shit on a lot for the 3D fail on TV or DVD, but it ain't that big a deal. Jason's 1st kill wit his new mask on is also among the top kills in the series imo. Iconic moment, and funny she 1st dunno it ain't Shelly, then just stands there and scolds him while he takes time to aim perfectly and hit the bullseye. ;D And not only he gets the mask but he gets the ax cut that becomes a part of it.

The back story of Jason jumpin Chris in the woods is kinda weak, cuz there's no way he just let her go without bein fought off somehow, probably by her parents. Wish they woulda shown it, or explained why he wandered to Higgins Haven the 1st time anyway. Still not enuf to damage the movie tho. It was good they had Brooker. Needed a bigger guy to play him in 3 than 2, made him look more scary.

I am confusing in the ending. Okay, Chris went on the boat and fall asleep. Next morning, she see Jason alive in the window and burst out of the door to come after Chris. She woke up, it is a dream, right? Is Pam Voorhees that jump out to catch Chris off of the boat real?

Or when cops came in the area, Chris was escorted out by a cop and she was crazy like mentally ill?

Which 3 of them that happened is real?

Dream? JV's mom? Chris walked out by a cop?

I am confusing in the ending. Okay, Chris went on the boat and fall asleep. Next morning, she see Jason alive in the window and burst out of the door to come after Chris. She woke up, it is a dream, right? Is Pam Voorhees that jump out to catch Chris off of the boat real?

Or when cops came in the area, Chris was escorted out by a cop and she was crazy like mentally ill?

Which 3 of them that happened is real?

Dream? JV's mom? Chris walked out by a cop?

Anyone have answers for this?

Random thoughts about part 3:

I'm not surprised that none of the characters had heard about the part 2 murders.  There could be any number of reasons for that.  How many young people watch the news?

It seems like Rick, being a local, would have at least known something about the legend of Jason and his mother.  It seems possible that Chris could have also been aware.   Was there any reason for them to have attributed what was going on with the legend of Jason?
Is it possible that these folks HAD heard of Jason and simply never mentioned him?  
By the time any of the poor saps knew that they were in danger, they were already being stuck with some sharp implement.  If they DID know about Jason, they never had any time to reflect upon this with each other.  Chris didn't even know anyone was dead until Rick flew through the window.

I would think that Crystal Lake WOULD be crawling with cops after all those murders, but they can't be everywhere at once.  We can't say how much ground the cops had to patrol without knowing how big Crystal Lake actually is.  Jason could have fled to the other side of the lake until the heat was off.  True to form, the cops only showed up when they WEREN'T needed, haha!!.  When it appeared that the van was being pulled over.

Why did the cops show up at the end of the movie?  How were they contacted?  By whom?I didn't notice a phone or any other communications device (like a CB radio) in the cabin. If the cops were scouring the area looking for a murderer, they must have happened upon the scene by luck.

I know I'm reading too much into this.  It's only a movie.   But it's fun to explore the possibilities.

good points.... but i dunno if they neccisarily knew about JVs reign of terror in the previous film.... i think JV was just hiding in their barn to elude the police.. but  he couldnt contain his murdurous impulses...i dunno if the kids were from the local CCL area... cause they had to drive out to higgins haven....like it was a summer cottage...  to me...the only person that showed any knowledge of the JV legend was vera's mother... they were arguing about her going at the beginning of the film...  and since rick lived out at higgins haven.. maybe the news hadnt traveled that far yet.. it is only the next morning after...... i too think the police showed at the end of the movie just from searching... or maybe chris' or vera's mom called them after hearing on the news to inform them that there was kids out there....and chris had no idea it was JV.. since she was attacked 2 yrs proir to the events in pt2.. no one knew JV was even alive at that point... if you think about it.. the "JV legend" only started after pt1.. we knew he drowned.. but there was never any talk of him commin back until pt2.. everything  from the bad  water to the fires was JVs mommy

Though very flawed, part 3 is my favorite overall. 

In this installment Jason seems more human and less of a boy in a man's body.  I view it as Jason fleeing the scene from part 2.  I don't think it is based at Crystal Lake, but another lake in a nearby area/town.  We know from Chris's flashback that Jason had been in this area before.  The market is somewhere in between the two lakes.  This is also why he changes clothes and ditches the sack mask.  Otherwise why would he change clothes???  I think Chris's parents knew the Jason legend, hence they never spoke of the incident.  Rick probably knew and Vera's mother too.  Speaking of which, does anyone know what Vera's mother was hollering inside the house?  Brooker is the best Jason IMO.

Well if we follow the logic of Part 3 and the flashback scene, Jason lived at Crystal Lake, found Chris asleep in the woods and attacked her. She "fell asleep" and woke up in her bed. That means that Higgins Haven must be a part of Crystal Lake or why would Jason have left Crystal Lake at all to go after some girl he didn't know?

Then again, in the flashback Jason is wearing the clothes from Part 3 and not the coverall and sack he had in Part 2. Who knows .  ;)

I remember reading somewhere that there was a scene shot of him bumping into Rick and Chris in the woods when they are coming back from the car (btw his name is Abel.) I'm not sure why it wasn't put into the final print or to even include a demise for the character, the higher the bodycount, the better :jason3:

I gotta say after seeing in.. IN The Theater I think Part 3 is the best one. It was so much fun, the old copy of the film jumping kinda like a grindhouse film, hearing the little kids in the theater after talking about how cool 3d was.. ( this was before the 3d craze of the last year or so)

Just so much fun. :jason3:

They never filmed this scene, from what can be detemined. Then again everyone says that Chris's death scene in the alternative ending was never filmed either, but Larry Zerner claims to have been on set when they did indeed film it, so who knows.

So was that shot meant to be sort of a publicity still or something to that effect? Well the thing is they had to of filmed the alternate ending because there were images released from the footage right? It isn't like they snapped photo's for an ending that would ultimately not exist. For the longest time I didn't know that there was extra footage from The Final Chapter with the mom in the bathtub, so like you said who knows. I'm sure it will turn up somehow, even if it's in low grade film reel footage.

Part III sucks and is my least favorite entry into the series. Parts 1 and 2 established the camp counselor motif with which Friday the 13th would always be associated with. Part III begins the pointless teen kids partying by the lake motif that causes the Friday the 13th franchise to wallow in mediocrity. It's almost like the first two films took themselves seriously, while this one was a like ninety-minute-long joke.

The only character in the film is Shelly. Everyone else is just a person on the screen, each as indistinguishable from the next. There's three girls, a couple of good lookin' dudes and two potheads--blatant rip offs of Cheech and Chong so in your face, that the filmmakers didn't even try to hide the fact that they were ripping off Cheech and Chong. Really, every human being in the film is reduced to nothing more than meat for Jason to hack his way through until Part 4 rolls around.

While the acting in the Friday the 13th franchise has never be lauded, it's particularly horrendous and downright laughable in Part III. Chris' speech about being attacked in the woods actually makes me laugh because it's so bad.

The "lake" is just a muddy puddle, Mrs. Voorhees, head intact, pops out of the lake at the end in a sequence that makes no sense. The 3-D gimmicks begin to piss me off about twenty seconds into the film, and Jason's look is so far removed from what was done in Part 2 that it almost feels like Part III is a separate franchise all together.

I just can't stand this movie. Give me A New Beginning and Jason Takes Manhattan any day.

Mrs. Voorhees coming out of the water was the spirit of her. As far as the lake, it wasn't the actual Crystal Lake, but another smaller body of water around the town of Crystal Lake.

Sure it doesn't have the actual camp councelor thing, but rather vacationers, but it is beievable that way. After the first two, all the camps in the area are closed and people keep coming to the woods, and keep getting killed by Jason.

So je shaved his hair off because since he probably doesn't shower it itched, and it also got in his eyes when he was chasing something or someone.

He basically looked the same in Part 4.

I actually love this one. When I was younger it was a toss up between this and part 7 for the most part. As I've gotten older I've become to enjoy each one for different reasons.

Anyhow, I still think that the lake in 3 IS Crystal Lake, its just a different area of it. We all know it was made for the movie so we know why it looks semi crappy. But really, we didn't NEED the lake for the story. Its just to establish that it is ON the same lake as the other films.

Wasn't there a fan made map that showed it was some sort of canal or stream that runs into the lake? That would make a lot more sense than it actually being the lake, but at least it would have some sort of connection to it.

I always thought of this movie as the Grindhouse version of the bunch, you have a crazy disco theme song, pot heads, biker gang members, and 3D effects. It definitely sticks out in my mind as being the most diverse from all the other films.

I agree 100%! I thought the characters were well defined, unlike the crap remake where you don't know one girl from the other. There was back story, not only with Jason, but with Chris and Rick, and there were awesome kills, and of course the birth of the mask!
I tend to like them in order from 1-5 therefore making pt 3 one of the best!!
I also believed it was part of the lake as well.
I will say, of all the locations I visited, besides the original camp, this was the most exciting to see in person! It looked so secluded and it really was!

You surprisingly make some good points about Part 3. The acting is terrible. Larry Zerner has even admitted that the production crew could care less about the acting as they were all tied up in 3D effects shots dilemnas. That being said, Part 3 did transition the franchise into what we know as Jason today. Some people don't like that? Then as mentioned above, there would be no message forum right here to discuss the films as there would have been no more movies after Part 3. How many times can you have kids go to a camp to get killed. Gotta change it up to make more movies. Part 3 is far from the worst in the series.

Part 3 has terrible plot holes in it, but it is a precursor to the best in the franchise, The Final Chapter.

Post by: 3timesbefore on August 03, 2010, 03:12:34 PM
It's all about Higgins Haven. I want my own one day. It's actually a bit surprising that Steve Miner had them build that lodge from the ground up to go along with the creepy barn, seeing as he didn't really pay attention to his own continuity from the previous film regarding Jason's looks. But building that lodge showed some serious investment in the movie. It has great atmosphere, especially the night shots with the strong wind blowing, rattling the shutters and making the hanging lights sway. The cozy main room with the fireplace and spiral staircase looks so safe, but outside is danger and darkness. It's also the focal point for the cat and mouse chase between Jason and Chris, and is a little like the Packanack counselor training center, enough so that it doesn't feel like a different horror series.

Jason himself is not to be messed with in this film, as the bikers found out in the barn. A nice little scene that always made an impression on me is when the biker girl is playing around in the barn and bangs a tune on the door to that little room below the loft. Then she moves on further into the barn and the camera follows, with Jason emerging from that room almost as an afterthought, visible only from the neck down. She had no idea how close she was to a living, breathing nightmare. Later, when he's jumping down from the loft to confront Ali, you again can't see his face. Neither could Ali, which is why he freaks when finally face to face with Jason. And let's not forget when he lifts up the hockey mask to show Chris who it is.

It's YOU! Great horrific moment with his mouth watering grin. Sure there's some sketchy acting, plot holes and gross out humor, but the atmosphere makes me forgive that.

Has anyone ever wondered what Chris means when she says "You cant be alive"?  I always thought it was because she hanged him but then I started to think what if she had actully killed him that other night as well??

I think that even with Jason being inexperienced at the time he first encountered Chris, it's unlikely she did any damage to him. She blacked out, and I like to think that maybe he took her back to the shack, which would explain her nightmare of Mrs. Voorhees at the end of Part 3. The one thing I don't quite understand is her "It's YOU!" comment when he lifts up the mask. How could it have been anyone else? A different attacker at her secluded summer home in the woods who also had a bald, deformed head and hunchback? Just how many people like that does she see on a regular basis?  :jason3:

 i think the "Is you" comment was mainly due to her not being sure if what happened to her was a dream or not.. and her actually seeing his face confirmed that everything that she thought happened.. did...

that's a good point brother jimmyd !!

i always thought it was because it was that was the 1st time in the film that she saw his face without the mask ? because in her flashback scene you can vaugely make out Jason and his head and face are bare .

Part 3 was pretty good. Perhaps, the film not contains much suspense, but I found it very entertaining. The atmosphere was very similar to Wrong Turn-2.
And of course, here is Shelly - the greatest character of the entire franchise.  ;D

I actually watched this last night on AMC, always great to see it. I'm with you, 3times, I so want my own Higgins Haven. Interesting sidenote, the Valuzet Movie Ranch where Part III was filmed, was also the terrorist camp in the first season of 24.

Just thought of something,didnt the events in the begining of part 3 happen rather quickly?I mean its still night when Jason arrives at the store yet Edna just watched the breaking news about the murders?

The phones at the training facility werent turned on yet.
The party'ers would have to drive to get help.
The news also states that bodys were found stroun over a 5 mile area-which would take a while to search
And we see Ginny carried out sometime when its daylight?

ya, it's gotta be the same day. he dies in the day time/morning. Then when part III starts, it's night time, and the police and ambulance are all on the scene. I know police are slow, but i don't think they'd be hanging around for all day then all night then all day again, and finally night again.

I love when horror film sequels continue right after the first ended, it's like it's the exact continuation of it, no room for bullshit lol.

No, I'm pretty sure they intended part 3 to have no survivors, let Jason win one. They went with the dream sequence instead though, which to me made no sense because there's no reason why Pamela Voorhees would've been in the water.

Pt.3 is becoming one of my favourites, no shit. I used to think it was one of the weakest films of the series but it's starting to grow on me. The characters in this are more relatable and have more of a connection than the casts from pt.1 and 2 imo. The only thing I didn't like was the way Jason was played, I felt like he came off more like one of the freaks from The Hills have eyes - doubled with the smirk he gives Chris, he kinda gave off a sexual predator sort of vibe.

Now Chris..I always used to think she was the weakest heroine of the series, not in terms of acting (well kinda that), but more her characterization. She barely survived really, unlike Ginny or Alice who seemed a bit stronger in the face of terror. But I like Chris as a final girl, she's not really your typical final girl, she was semi-fragile both mentally (having been scarred by her previous Jason encounter) and physically - this is demonstrated further at the end when she appears to have lost it. All in all, I think Dana gave a good performance and if there'd be any Friday girl I'd like to have see return in one of the sequels after, it would have been Chris...though I don't see her surviving a second time around :P

A lot of people think it's the worst, but it gave us a lot of great things for the series. The mask for instance, the possibility of a survivor less film, and one of the best Jasons ever: Richard Brooker. So, even with it's many shortcomings this film is one we'd be poorer without.

Here's a review I wrote for part 3. I'll post it here rather than a link to my site as I'm new and unsure of the rules in regards to that. You all can hate me after reading it, it's ok  ;D

The Story: A handful of out of town campers falls prey to Jasons murderous ways.

Friday the 13th Part 3 was originally shot using 3D technology. You know, the audience is handed those funky looking blue and red cardboard glasses before entering the theater. So at this viewing, some of the so-called attempts to get the viewer to jump, fails miserably.

This movie starts out extremely slow. At the out set, a woman is nagging her husband about everything. The couple run a general store in the Crystal Lake area and the man cant do anything right. Well, he can, but his wife doesnt seem to think so, so she nags him. In fact, this scene is so long and the woman so annoying, you want Jason to kill the loud mouthed bitch just to shut her up! Jason eventually ends up killing the couple (thank god) but it takes forever.

In comes the out of town teenagers for a weekend of camping. On their way to the campgrounds, they stop for what appears to be a dead man lying in the road. The old man gets up and warns them to turn back but the kids all scamper back to the van ignoring the senile old fart. As you might guess, all but one of the kids ends up dying and Jason is killed at the end of the movie, or is he?

The third movie in the Friday series goes miserable wrong for several reasons. First, its tough to scare the viewer with the same old routine. How many times can you have Jason running around killing people the same old way without boring the audience? Second, 3D technology wasnt new at the time this movie was released. In fact it had been around for years prior to the movie being shot. They used it because the script was horrible. Third, and this has to do with the second, the effects used in the 3D scenes are laughable. Three scenes in particular, the rattlesnake, the eye pop, and the knife throw. In each of these scenes a visible line is seen. When the rattlesnake strikes at the store clerk, you can clearly see it. When Jason squeezes a campers head, you can clearly see the line attached to his eye when it comes flying towards the camera, and lastly, when he throws a knife at the surviving teen, again, you can clearly see the line. I could look past these things if you could only see them in frame by frame, but in this case, you can see the lines without pausing the movie. Forth, the acting is horrible. Im not sure whos responsible for casting the movie, but Im hoping Jason killed this guy shortly after the movie started.

There is one redeeming scene in the movie, given the script was so bad, the last 20 minutes of the film Jason makes his first appearance with the hockey mask, and the battle between Jason and the surviving camper is quite good. Until this point, the movies a bore feast. In my opinion, Jason should have hit hard and fast at the beginning of the film taking his killing to a new level. But that wasnt the case. How director Steve Miner can go from such a good film in part 2 to this mess is beyond me.

About my 1.5 cleaver rating, until the last scene in the movie, this was a one-cleaver review tops. I gave it an extra half cleaver for the final battle scene. But I still cant recommend it. Skip it and go right to part 4, which is actually pretty good.

Until this point, the movies a bore feast. In my opinion, Jason should have hit hard and fast at the beginning of the film taking his killing to a new level. But that wasnt the case. How director Steve Miner can go from such a good film in part 2 to this mess is beyond me.

About my 1.5 cleaver rating, until the last scene in the movie, this was a one-cleaver review tops. I gave it an extra half cleaver for the final battle scene. But I still cant recommend it. Skip it and go right to part 4, which is actually pretty good.



Do I need to point out that the kids aren't really " campers"?  they're out for a weekend getaway.

possibly his neck didn't snap on the way down ? weird i know , because JV is a big guy and that would be a lot of weight coming down ....

possibly with his deformities , his windpipe was 'masked' or semi-protected by extra muscles or scar tissue internally ? ok that was stupid , but i've never put much thought into the hanging ? you asked !!! :)

i think he survived because it's a horror movie , and the film wasn't quite over yet .

See, that is a common misconception about hanging, that the neck always snaps instantly. It doesn't! In fact, in the vast majority of hangings the condemned's neck does not snap at all and they usually dangle and strangle for a while until they are literally choked to death by the rope around their neck. In less than 25% of hangings (estimated) does the neck snap. The human neck is a strong, heavy duty piece of equipment and as such is built well to withstand a lot of damage. Also, the noose has to be tied at an upward angle, approximately 45 degrees, for the knot of the noose to act as a fulcrum with the force and break the neck. In short, Jason's neck didn't snap because Chris didn't know how to tie a hangman's noose (not that there's any reason she would have).  Also, Jason's hands were not restrained like a criminal condemned to death by hanging's hands would have been, thus he was able to lift the noose and free himself to continue to go after her.

Nothing like doing the job right.  Now, how would you like to be Chris when Jason's taking the noose off his neck?

Yeah you can see it clear as day on the side of the van before they get out. It's not as bad as one scene in Trick or Treat from 1986, the mic drops into frame above someone's head for a good 10 seconds before picking back up. I've never seen anything like it.

Post by: Jason V on September 20, 2011, 07:24:02 PM
well film mistakes like that arent really that unusual for 1980s slasher films. And it gives them a certain charme doesnt it?

Well okay Friday the 13th Part 3. A movie that is pretty infamous here in germany (which ofc only adds to its flair) and was not so easy to come by since its banned over here (Even in a more censored version than the R-rated version). Thank god for my local DVD-store that imports movies from Austria, switzerland, UK etc.^^

Overall Friday 3 is another great entry in the series that fits very much into it. You have the creepy atmosphere (especially in the last 30 minutes), the great Manfredini music (even though the opening theme is too disco and cheesy which doesnt really work as well as the opening music in Part 1 and 2), some really nasty kills and ofc you have the iconic moment of Jason finally stepping out of that barn with the hockey mask, which is a landmark moment for the series. And Jason just looks so cool in the mask especially after you have seen him in Part 2 only with the bag it really becomes this "yes! finally!" moment. while the kills of course have been once again trimmed down by the MPAA and Paramount for the R rated version they are more brutal and bloody then in Part 2.

But Part 3 does have some downsides. The 3D gimmick is used way too over the top and is so obvious and somewhat annoying if you watch it in 2D. The movie has some unnecessary lengths between the kills of the bikers and when Jason gets the mask. and the final girl Chris really doesnt have the quality of Alice or Ginny and often really was just whiny and annoying. her boy toy Rick wasnt any better. I didnt like that guy at all. Also the whole young adult cast of Part 3 wasnt very likable (except for Chuck and Debbie, I really liked them. especially Chuck was a funny guy. "Heavy shiiiit" - hahaha). Certainly not as good as the main cast of Parts 1 and 2. But since you are rooting for Jason anyway that makes their deaths all the more enjoyable. Part 3 really started this tradition of practically cheering at the screen when Jason kills them, while in Part 1 and 2 even though you love the death scenes and Jason and Mrs. Voorhees you are not really cheering them on during the kills like they are heroes. That to me started with Part 3. Because by that time Jason becomes that really cool badass killer and the main cast is mostly so silly and annoying that you just love seeing them get it real good.

I watched the film just last night again as part of my current F13 DVD marathon and I really smiled at the scene where Chris tries to run Jason over and he jumps out of the way. Undead Jason would never ever do that, it was another example of how much Jason has evolved since these early days and its kind of cool of seeing him still as this human who can get hurt and is not invincible, knowing what he becomes later on. And you cant help but smile when you see that. the good old early human days of jason :)

Overall Part 3 is a cool film with great kills, atmosphere and for the first time the hockey mask. Even though the main cast isnt all too likable (especially the final girl Chris) especially compared to previous maincasts and the movie has some lengths that makes the movie only slightly less good than Part 1 and 2. Still a very cool Friday the 13th film and the one where the "real" Jason is born.

Rating: 7/10

A few comments about Friday #3.
Probably 99% of the people on this forum have never seen Friday #3 in it's original 3D format which was linear polarized.  The 3D effects seen on the DVD and Blu Ray 3D  versions are total CRAP.  So I get that a lot of fans don't like the 3D effects.  Understood.  If you could see it in way it was screened in 1982 I would suggest you might change your opinion.
Secondly, the acting IS not good.
Third, let's not forget that Friday 3 is responsible for the "beginning" of the now famous hockey mask.  Let's give the film the credit it's due.
And finally, despite the bad acting, horrible anaglyph 3D releases (dvd/blu ray) it's still  an important installment to the Friday story line.

Ditto HorrorNut... we need to remember to view things within their proper context. So, for 1982 the linear polarized 3D effects were cutting edge.  :jason3: :jason3: :jason3:

And you're absolutely correct Scott.  For the most part anaglyph is the only way the majority of people will ever see Friday part 3 in 3D.  It is shown in it's original format at conventions and festivals all over the country and some folks will be able to attend those screenings.  As a film collector I am very fortunate to own an original print of Friday 3 in 3D.  I'm happy with the Blu Rays of Friday 1 & 2 and if others are released I'll be purchasing them as well.  But the only way to see Friday 3 is as it was released in 1982.

From what I've heard over the years, the alternate ending footage is considered "lost footage".  Knowing Hollywood and my experience with storage lockers, studio basements, etc.  out on the west coast, that footage is somewhere on the Paramount property but covered up in years of "junk".  I once found and purchased a like-new 35mm print of the original Halloween from a storage locker about 10 miles from Hollywood.  I make a trip every year out to LA to search for "treasures".  Most of the time I come up empty handed though.
Bottom line.....I don't know anyone who has seen the alternate ending.  Maybe someone of this forum has???

I am watching this on Blu-ray right now. These classic horror films never get old. They do not make them like this anymore.

This film has my absolute favorite end chase in the entire franchise.

I love her knocking Jason over the head with the log, almost running him over, and all the barn stuff. I think the Friday 3 chase is the most exciting ending chase.

I agree that pt 3 has some great stuff !
All of the barn scenes were well done , and the ending of the movie was neat too .

When Jason trapped Chris in the barn ? Awesome and scary ...

This is my favorite chase/fight scene in the whole series because it really got me on the edge of my seat, freaking out, screaming at the TV excited. The other ones really didn't get me quite so stirred up. Love the overhead shots looking down. Also loved the scene when Chris was trying to escape in the van. Good times :)

You don't think she ever got out? I'm pretty optimistic that Chris recovered. She had some pretty severe post traumatic stress, but I think she probably got help, and went on to live a normal life. I never saw Chris as someone weak, so I have no doubts that she recovered. Probably fared a little better than Tommy.

At the end of the movie she looked like she was in VERY bad psychological shape. Recovery might have been possible, but I do not know how likely or how long it would take.

I tend to agree .

Chris was certainly shaken up at the end of pt3 , but she'd just been through one hell of an ordeal !
She always seemed strong willed and i'm sure that she recovered eventually .

Exactly. When you think Jason Voorhees, I think most people picture a hockey mask. The mass public probably isn't really aware of the Baghead Jason look. That, or else ones who are REALLY clueless will say, "Jason Voorhees? Is he the one with a chainsaw?"

Chainsaw Voorhees - Haha .
For some reason i always liked the baghead look and found it much creepier . I wish they had used it more to make the mass public aware of it , as you say .

The only other related character is probably the Elephant Man , even though he wasn't a fictional horror icon .

They brought the bag head look back in the 2009 Friday the 13th film. They also had that look on plenty of action figures that were sold in every Hott Topic and Toys R Us when the movie was new, so I think some awareness was brought to it.

Hope we can find both pieces of footage someday.

I'm watching Pt 3 on IFC right now and having an absolute blast. It reminds me of watching them on Spike and even on Monstervision back in the day.

Btw when I watched it on Spike one time it was still The New TNN I think and they ran the wrong movie!  It was originally scheduled to be Jason Lives but they ran the wrong film. Oh well I still had a fun time and didn't mind.

Kinda makes me hope Spike TV will revert back to those days a little. Spike is still cool but they could still show Jason and maintain their coolness.

By the way I actually had someone tell me this one isn't a true Jason movie. Their reasoning is that since it doesnt take place at CCL it doesn't count. I believe it is a Jason movie because he is the main character. A Jason movie stars Jason or Pamela no matter where it's set.

Any movie (sans FVJ) that features Jason is a Jason movie !
Camp Crystal Lake was the original setting , but sets change to help move new plot lines forward .

JV is the only real constant in the whole series . He is the main character and they are all HIS films ...

There's more to it than that . Lots of people would love to be shooting this right now . There is a corporate red-tape machine involved too , unfortunately .

Scripts need to be approved and possibly rewritten . The upper brass has to sign off on the project . Casting , agents , money issues , locations , .. etc.

It's harder than just going out and doing it . There's a long process to adhere to .

I'm just wondering since Warner Bros is gonna release them on blu ray the older ones I mean. Could that mean the red tape referenced earlier is gone now?

Same here. I love the movies.  Like I said before whether they're called Friday The 13th or Jason I love the movies no matter what. I can't wait for them on blu ray too!

One suggestion though. If Pt 3 gets released on blu ray again please bring the cast commentary from the boxset. I mean from the From Crystal Lake To Manhattan dvd set u know? That was a cool and fun commentary and u could tell the folks were having a blast! Don't know if the flick will get a rerelease on blu ray now that WB has the rights but I think the cast commentary was perfect and if anything should be brought over from the dvd thst would be it! Anyone else agree?

I'd have to go back and revisit the cast commentary , but i remember liking it !
Pt3 is a real treat to watch . I'll bet that the cast had a good time .

The execs weren't as happy due to the 3D process and extra delays involved , but i thought the movie turned out really well .

I can't see Warner Brothers spending money on a property if they do not intend to sell them and make a return on their investment. We will see a box set for the entire franchise. I am almost sure of it.

Part 3 will of course be a part of that set. The Part 3-D that Paramount did, both DVD and Blu-ray, wasn't bad for a first time ever kind of thing, but I hope Warner can convert it to Blu-ray 3D the same way Universal just did for Creature from the Black Lagoon.

As far as the commentary from the Crystal Lake to Manhattan box set, I liked it too. I do not think they would re-use it though. I think realistically, Warner would record their own commentary tracks.

Anyone who does not think the first four Friday the 13th films are four of the greatest horror films ever made is not worth my time and attention.  :P

To me, the first four Friday the 13th films as one complete piece or one complete story (kind of like the original Star Wars trilogy or the Lord of the Rings trilogy) is the greatest horror film ever made. That is how I look at the first four Friday; as one complete story, the same way people look at the original Star Wars trilogy.

I have to say that Part 3 was the first Friday the 13th movie I ever saw. I remember watching it with my dad, cousin, and grandmother on an old BlockBuster VHS tape when I was a little kid and it freaked me the hell out! lol I used to be terrified of horror movies, but I would still want my dad to rent a couple every weekend. Eventually this led me to become a huge fan (even to the point of getting a hockey mask tattoo on my calf). I love these movies and part 3 will always hold a special place in my heart. I guess it's the creepy atmosphere of the early 1980s where everyone still has that 70's style. I don't know exactly what it its about this movie, but I will never forget it.

I have a copy of it somewhere on VHS that we taped off of a TV marathon years ago. I just hope that some day I can view it the way it was meant to be seen and not on those shitty red/blue 3D glasses. I demand a box office re-release of the Friday the 13th movies! Don't remake every horror movie under the sun! Re-release them! Film companies wouldn't have to spend millions to make the same movie twice when they could just pay someone to cut together some new trailers and maybe bump the film quality up to HD. They did it with Alien, and Star Wars, so why not our favorite franchise?

Probably because they figure what's the point in rereleasing it when we can just remake it and possibly make more money due to more people being curious of seeing a remake vs. seeing something they have seen over and over. Just my 2 cents, but I do agree with you.

With all due respect, that is an oximoron right there.  ;D Think about it. You are suggesting there is a difference between a remake and something you have already seen.

Part 3 does have my absolute favorite end chase sequence in the entire franchise.

I think the single scariest part was when Jason crawls through the window with the ax in his hand after throwing Rick through it.

The truth about the Friday the 13th "remake" is that it can be viewed as a remake or it can be placed almost wherever one wants to place it in the series.

For example, I have often just said it was Part 12, and explained it like this:

Jason regenerates lost and damaged skin tissue as said in Jason X (which just so happens to be one of those dreams or alternate realities Jason experiences while in Hell. He was a child in the 50s, which was the age of the UFOs and big bug movies and Creature from the Black Lagoon, and Jason being the social outcast he was, was more then likely to enjoy sci-fi movies, so it is only natural that he kind of see himself in a sci-fi alternate reality at some point. Hell, maybe it was just a dream he had at some point, but anyway, it gave us the regeneration ability, so I'll go with it).

The 2012 film is six years after Freddy vs. Jason which is 2003. In six years he had plenty of time to fully regenerate into the creature he was by 2009.

Love ya bro (not really , but on this forum we're cool) yet i have to disagree here .
All the theories about about the regenerative stuff are legit , for the movies after pt 4 . The later revenant sequels were fun , yet silly , entries to the F13th series . Comedic pleasures aside , Jason as most of the world knew him , was done after FvJ . There will be no more of that nonsense IMO .

The 2009 movie featured Jason as a human hunter/killer  . Not a 'creature' as you said , again IMO .
It is clearly not a continuation of the original series . It's a fresh take on what made the original series work , LONG before the trips to space and NYC .

After revisiting part 3, I am an ever bigger fan of Richard Brooker. He played the perfect mentally challenged mongoloid.

I do believe he raped or attempted to rape Chris and which is why he went back to Higgins Haven to find her. Again, just my opinion. Brooker gives off that vibe. It's extremely subtle but it's there. The smirk on his face when he takes his mask off he to remind Chris who he is was was maniacal.

The way he lurches and moves I am a big fan of.

White was more smart and angered in Part 4.

Hard choice.

thats wrong in so many way i wont even begin lol..


the 09 film is a fresh start of the series.. NO link to the original films... although its fun to toss it in wherever one sees fit to do so..they use the legend.. and have homages to the original films.. but its impossible for it to be a part of the original series..


but back to the thread at hand... its been WAY too long since ive watched this in 3d.. would anyone be down for a viewing sometime???

It is difficult to compare special effects technology between films that are twenty-five years apart. For what it is worth, I enjoy Friday the 13th Part III better in 2D. The same goes for the remake of My Bloody Valentine. As a matter of fact, I enjoy 3D film in theaters, but when I watch at home, I prefer 2D.

I Loved part 3... It is my 3rd favorite and really thought Kris fought back as one of the stronger heroines in the series. I mean, she did actually KILL Jason... for a moment any way. Shelly was a cool character and I wish that Vera had at least had sex with him before he died. My favorite movies in the series in order would be... Part 2, part 1, part 3, Part 6, Part 4, Part 7, Part 5, Jason X, Freddy vs Jason and then Jason goes to Hell... The Remake in 2009 stands on it's on.. I will say that I LOVED Jason in that movie...

I enjoy part 3,but it is not one of my favourite's for some strange reason that ''farm barn'' really annoyed me..........but anyway,what do you guy's say?

Part 3 is hands down my favorite one. The deaths are unique and Jason is real menacing here.

Very good entry, Jason finally gets his hockey mask, there are some great death scenes (and despite some censoring it's not as bad as in other installments so it's still pretty gory), the atmosphere is very eerie and Jason is incredibly scary here, I love the chase scene at the end and the showdown in the barn. Got to love old-school Jason :jason11:

Yup, old school Jason actually ran after his victims which made him more believable and creepy.

It's a good one for sure . Pt 2 trumps it though IMO . Ginny kicks JV in the nuts , and we hear him grunt . The music , the buildup , the SHRINE to his mother ? Yeah ...

I still give the edge to 3 as it is my favorite movie, but the second is my second fav (lol) and the shrine is awesome. The scuffling/wrestling in the second movie seems more dated. The third had held up very well and I love Chris.

I'd love to see 3 and 4 back to back in theaters. 3D or not it would be a treat for me.

I was looking back through this topic and saw where if I said I was in charge id grab rights to the Jason and Freddy movies and go buck wild with them. Well Spike now owns rights to both franchises and I would not be surprised in the least if they show the heck outta them come this Halloween.

When was the first time everyone here saw Part 3?

I actually didn't see TFC or Part 3 (at least from memory) until the late 90s/early 2000s. I'd seen 1, 5, 6 and 8 many times growing up but none of the others til much later. It is possible I may have seen TFC at least once though because I remember BBC showing a few Friday's one week back when I was in primary school and I know they showed 5 and 6 for definite but I when I watched TFC as a teen I got a weird dj vu feeling in some scenes.

I saw Part 3 the first time when TNN made that error and showed 3 instead of 6 even though it was listed on the bottom of the screen as Friday The 13th Part VI: Jason Lives.

For some reason i cant remember the first time i saw part 4. Funny because its my absolute favorite and the first horror movie i ALWAYS recommend to folks. Im sure itll come to me but i cannot remember watching Part 4 the first time. Weird huh?

One of the most enjoyable films of the entire franchise. A great entry in the series that had everything. A great opening scene, a great location (the farm), the discovery of the mask, great killings, best chase ever, music, a great Jason and believable characters.

The movie no bored me at all. It is true that the backstory of the final girl with Jason seems a little awkward, but, besides that, the rest of the film is pretty straight forward.

I think the 3d thing was a wonderful idea. I saw the film several times in 2d, only one month ago i finally saw it in 3d thanks to the blu-ray complete collection box set and i realize of all the 3d effects in the movie that i don't think off when i saw the movie in 2d.

As the years have gone by, I really think this movie has seen its approval with the fans grow by leaps and bounds. Not a bad movie at all and I love that no one in this movie ever calls the man Jason. It's just like let the fans make their own conclusions as to who is doing the killing and stuff u know? Let us connect the dots and it worked and I always have fun watching Part 3 especially with the commentary.

True, effects in part 3 were not top notch. It would have made more sense if the corpse in the water was Alice. Her body was never found after her disappearance. Would have made for a better hallucination.

Yes! Headless corpses are great! Always dug that lawnmower scene from Sleepaway Camp 3. lol. When Chris is pushing all the branches out of the way of the canoe, she grabs an object she discovers to be Mrs. V's head, gets all hysterical again and then gets yanked under. Fun!

Okay, yeah, that's a cool scene. But I still say there's something slightly corny about a headless corpse dragging anybody down.

Part 3 was HORRIBLE when it came to continuity, so Mrs Voorhees appearing in the lake made perfect sense...in THIS movie. And Alice coming from the lake, as cool as it would be, would be on par (as her skeletal remains would have been removed from the shack by police who were "combing the area since just before dawn").It's just like Ali being knocked out, hit on the side of the head three times with a heavy wrench, then just magically coming out of nowhere (conveniently at the right time) later in the movie to try and halt Jason.

As for Mrs Voorhees head in the barn, where would it have been stored while Jason was at Harold's? And why was Jason even at Higgins Haven.....did he know Chris was there? Did he leave Harold's to go hide out at Higgins Haven, and coincidentally Chris and co showed up?

Post by: Jameslofton on March 21, 2017, 03:14:25 AM
I watched this last week. Hadn't seen it in ages. The whole Shelley/Vera situation really rubs me the wrong way now. Yeah we've all known people who have been in that situation and/or been placed in that situation ourselves. Maybe its because I'm getting older and that's why it bothers me more.

Obviously they are a mismatch. I just think Vera could have treated him a bit better instead of the ice cold shoulder but on the other hand, even if in the back of her mind she might have considered giving him a chance, him being so damn obnoxious would've killed his chances immediately. Guys like that just don't know how to act around women.

The film eases the tension a bit during their ride to the store and incident with the bikers but its too little, too late.

I also feel for Vera too. She probably wanted to have a great time and winds up being matched up with an obnoxious, virginal nerd.

They both come across as a fifth wheel in the equation though.

As far as Mrs. Voorhees in the water, I interpret that as her spirit. I think the area is haunted by her ghost.

Remember Chris' backstory. Jason knows the area. He was probably going to rob the store for food, but people were still there, so they were in his way.

Re-Watched, gonna basically review it.

Pros...
- Best score of the franchise easily, builds tension very well without using the chi-chi-chi too much.
- I like the whole cast, even Vera. I get a genuine feel of friendship among most of them. Like 2 even the practical joker is likable & sympathetic.
- Chris is a good final girl, not as resourceful or strong as Ginny in 2 but still solid. At first it looks like she is going to be helpless & hysterical calling out for Rick but once she finds out he is dead, she strengthens up pretty quick. That being said... I liked her more in previous viewings then in this one, not sure why the change.
- Solid final chase.
- Indifferent to this Jason's facial make up but I loved the hunch back & oversized neck to him in this one.
- I appreciate how it connects directly from 2.
- I like the sets a good deal, felt like a lot of work went into making the house & the barn feel authentic & not cheap. (they built the house from scratch if you take a look in the Crystal Lake memories book)
- I liked the moment with the biker chick Fox exploring the barn with a child like awe, always reminds me of myself doing the same in my passed on Grandfather's barn/workshop/farm.

Cons/Nitpicks...
- Yes there is some forced 3D moments but they aren't too insufferable and aren't placed in scenes of tension thankfully.
- Film has a good number of mistakes with missing blood, 1st with Jason not bleeding out onto his new shirt from the hacked open shoulder he got at the end of 2/start of this. 2nd with Andy's blood not covering the majority of the hallway after his disemboweling, 3rd with Andy's blood not covering the Hammock before Debbie even had the chance to lay in it.
- Pamela attacking Chris is retarded for 2 reasons.
A.) If she is a physical Zombie, how is her head attached to her body again?
B.) She could not be a dream by Chris as there is no evidence in the film that she has ever even heard of the Voorhees family.
So considering those notes this is the ONLY possibly in story explanation.
As far as Mrs. Voorhees in the water, I interpret that as her spirit. I think the area is haunted by her ghost.

That's a powerful haunting besides why aren't the murdered victims haunting the area? I prefer the supernatural explanation/book of the dead approach. I think Jason drowned but was brought back via Pamela's sacrificing of the counselors. I think Jason was doing the same by killing Alice and bringing her to the altar and then sacrificing the trainees. Jason was revived at the end of Part 1 just as Pamela was revived at the end of part 3.

The problem with such theories is there's nothing in those two films to indicate any supernatural explanations. Its hindsight combined with extreme fandom placing their own tailor made evidence to fit into specific theories.

Should the filmmakers have done a better job? Yes....but they had no idea at the time these films would catch on and an entire franchise created out of them.

She's not "sacrificing" counselors. She has a very specific reason for killing them and she doesn't hide her motivation behind the murders. It's unfortunate that her mental state was not explored in the film because its obvious that her son is still alive. Like I mentioned in that other thread, this just begs to be some sort of twist in the original film.

Jason wasn't brought back through some sort of ritualistic sacrifice. He's obviously a real person, always was, and the way he was living in the woods shows he has been living like that for a period of time.

In your scenario, if Pamela was "revived" the way Jason was revived.....where is she? Is she only revived for one scene but then vanishes back into the abyss after the credits roll?

There are enough continuity issues and various plot holes to deal with yet fans create their own out of thin air.

I'll tell ya what Pamela is in this film.....

A bad idea. It's clearly an attempt to recreate the previous scene and a jump scare. Nothing more, nothing less. Fans have dissected the scene a hell of a lot more than those who filmed it ever did.

It really is unfortunate that the remake had to be so horrid. They could've rebooted the whole thing and told a much more fluid story that can properly connect the issues between the original and the story of Jason.

There's nothing in the two films to indicate any paranormal/ghost explanation either. As the viewer, one is left to make that conclusion. Jason goes to hell makes introduces the supernatural approach but I think it's always been apart of the films explaining how Jason is able to recover from such damage, return from the dead ect. What were her reasons for killing the counselors if Jason never drowned? I think Pamela may have responsible for Mrs. Jarvis death. I think she threw Rob though the window because Jason was clearly shown walking towards the Jarvis house without Rob's corpse. In a similar fashion I think a revived Jason may have tossed Brenda though the window.

Yes...the viewer is allowed to reach a conclusion....but they're not expecting the viewers to go off the rails on a crazy train either.

You're taking certain abilities given to him in later films by people who had nothing to do with the original vision and giving him those same powers in the first few films. Jason Goes To Hell?!? Really? They wanted to distance themselves from the original franchise yet you're taking his new powers back to that story.  THis reminds me of those Halloween fans who attempt to take that absurd Thorn storyline and place it in the first three Myers films to give him a new method to his madness. Why they think its a good idea to take a concept that was literally made up as they went along and use it to fuel Myers' motives I don't have the slightest clue.

Good question....and its one they might have tried to answer had they known a sequel a year would get pumped out of the story.

Having said that....its a question that can help explain Pamela's motivations and mental state. Has nothing to do with Jason's motives. That's a whole different ball of wax.

There's nothing in that film(or prior films) to indicate this is possible. Not even a slight hint that she's alive or her ghostly presence has become a mass murderer. You've taken one scene meant as a lame carbon copy jump scare and twisted it to the point there's now a second killer at Crystal Lake.

There's a reason these types of fantasies are kept in fan fiction/comic books.

The first movie strongly suggested that Jason drowned. Even if you don't hold to that idea then explain how Jason was able to take the machete to the shoulder, getting hanged, axe to the head etc and kept coming. Do you think a man could take that kind of damage or is the viewer to believe that Jason posses some type of supernatural abilities?

That's not entirely true. There's a deleted scene that showed the decapitated Pamela's eyes opening after the events of part 2. It was only cut because the scene lacked realism.

I was simply responding to that. Nowhere in my post history have I ever claimed they are ghosts.

You have his mother killing people in later sequels. Considering the fact she was decapitated, if you don't believe in this ghost crap, I guess you think she's stumbling around without a head.

The first movie strongly suggested that Jason drowned. Even if you don't hold to that idea then explain how Jason was able to take the machete to the shoulder, getting hanged, axe to the head etc and kept coming. Do you think a man could take that kind of damage or is the viewer to believe that Jason posses some type of supernatural abilities?
He could've easily survived his wounds in II. People have also survived hangings. Chris was not a professional executioner. People have also survived terrible wounds to the head. It's unlikely but it is realistically possible.

Quote
That's not entirely true.
Yes it is.

Quote
There's a deleted scene that showed the decapitated Pamela's eyes opening after the events of part 2. It was only cut because the scene lacked realism.
I'm aware of that and the fact they didn't use it because it lacks realism reinforces my point.

You cant use discarded scenes. Every film has discarded scenes. Stuff left on the cutting room floor does not get to become canon.

We've been over the reason for that scene's existence.
 You're accusing me of making up the ghost idea?!? You and Rich were just talking about it!
 I was simply responding to that. Nowhere in my post history have I ever claimed they are ghosts.
I noted that theme of the Friday the 13th has nothing to do with ghosts and was based on the supernatural. You chimed in against that idea which indicates that you support the ghost idea, no?

Pamela clearly had an attached head in part 3. I took the scene as Pamela was recently revived and seeking revenge against Chris in the same way Jason did against Alice. That's the beauty of these films, they are open to interpretation from one scene. Maybe it's stretch to have Pamela killing in part 4 but it's not out of the question. In any case the film makers explicitly showed Jason walking towards the Jarvis house without Rob's corpse and that opens the possibility for Pamela.

If we're speaking realistically all these wounds are fatal. The machete to the shoulder in part 2 would've have severed the subclavian artery, death would have followed very quickly. What is depicted in Part 3 was a drop hanging no one is going to survive that nor having an axe lodged into the brain. Again, the series has relied on a supernatural approach early on. As Paul said Jason drowned.

Now just because of scene was cut doesn't mean it didn't provide useful information to the context of the movie, simply Google important deleted scenes. Unfortunately the driving force isn't additional clarity in movies but time and money.

Part 3 is great, but I only don't get why they didn't have it have another character, I'm saying, it would've been cool to have a new wave character in this one, but hey, that's just my idea

Ghosts are supernatural!

No...there's nothing to indicate I support any ghost ideas. I like the earlier films because they are much more realistic than later sequels. To insert ghosts into that would do the exact opposite.

You're taking that scene literally? How do you revive a person who was decapitated, place the head back on the rotted corpse, and then turn it into a killing machine?


Quote

Yes it is out of the question and there's no maybes about it...it IS a stretch. For starters she wasn't included in the storyline. Just because Jason doesn't carry every corpse doesn't mean his dead mother who is no longer part of the storyline is his accomplice to mass murder.


Quote

No they are not. Are they potentially fatal? Yes. Just about any wound has the potential to be fatal, even if by infection. Every single wound he endures in II and III is survivable. People have survived hangings, severe shoulder wounds, and knives driven into their skull. Have you ever watched the series Trauma: Life in the ER?


Quote

Or did he drown? If the original film is held up as a stand alone, yeah he drowned....or his mother is completely insane and they simply never opened the window to this fact. The fact that II exists and was unable to be consistent with the motivations of the original does not mean there's a supernatural element to the story. It just means they weren't very creative in following it up.

Yes in later sequels they go to the supernatural well because they have to in the desire for more sequels but by that point it is F13 in name only....it is far removed from the initial story being told.


You're right...films are open to interpretation but you're giving him(and now his mother) the power(s) given to him in later sequels and having it materialize in the first couple films. Why not go whole hog and have him be a Zombie in II? It's not any more outlandish than reviving his decapitated dead mother and making her the second killer in IV.

Ghosts are paranormal not supernatural. This is the Friday the 13th realm we're talking about. How are you even questioning the logic in Pamela being revived when we have Jason coming back from drowning, hanging, axe to the head, rotting in grave etc?

Jason often moves bodies off screen but that's not what is shown. Once Rob is killed until his corpse comes though the window, we know where Jason is located. There was only one instance where Jason could move the body and he was clearly shown without it. Did Rob's corpse simply walk over to the Jarvis house? Even in the Final Chapter there is a hint of Pamela being resurrected. When it shows Pamela's grave it looks to have been exhumed recently supporting the idea that Jason recovered her body. Besides Chris was terrorized by a man so why would she mention or have any knowledge about a lady in a lake unless she was attacked by Pamela as shown?

 I don't recall the scenes showing Jason receiving emergency medical care. Let's see the prognosis of a machete in the shoulder severing the subclavian artery as shown in part 2:
Quote
Subclavian Artery:
Unconsciousness 2 seconds, death 3.5 seconds
[url]http://realfighting.com/unconsciousness_and_death.php[/url] ([url]http://realfighting.com/unconsciousness_and_death.php[/url])

Quote
Subclavian Artery: Approx 2-20 minutes. The doctors also noted: this is a special circumstance anatomically because this vessel is protected by the clavicle and the first rib (sandwiched between them) if the Subclavian artery bleeds, the only way to compress it and repair it is to open the chest by thoracotomy. You cannot compress it. Patients usually die on the scene or en-route to hospital.
https://biology.stackexchange.com/questions/55220/exsanguination-time-from-damage-to-major-arteries

I included two links I think first was supposed to show death at 3.5 minutes. Interestingly Part 2 had Jason losing consciousnesses in the span the link shows. Again, death would have followed very quickly. I'm not aware of anyone surviving a drop hanging. People have survived all types of horrendous wounds to the head but we have to assume that the emts and field coroner would have verified Jason was dead during the investigation and he was revived enroute to the hospital. In any case, a normal human could no take anywhere that kind of damage without treatment and keep coming without the supernatural approach.

Tomato, Tomhato. There's a transparent, razor thin line between paranormal and supernatural. You're attempting to split hairs at this point.

There's a huge difference between her being beheaded and being resurrected by you and Jason suffering the wounds he did in the first films. You're now moving the goal post by trying to act like I'm referring to later films in the series with the "rotting in grave" reference.

Of course it didn't walk over there although with the magical powers you give headless Pamela and inserting her into sequels, you might as well go whole hog and have the victims attain these powers as well.

Its called bad editing. Just because a scene lacks a bit of consistency doesn't mean they're trying to insinuate his mother is back from the dead.

Quote

There's no hint of resurrection. None...zilch...nada. For the sake of this discussion let's take that literally and assume Jason is a blend of Ed Gein and Norman Bates. It still doesn't insinuate resurrection. If it does anything, it gives us a brief glimpse into Jason's psychological makeup. He has some mommy issues. Just because someone has mommy issues doesn't mean they brought mommy back from the dead.


Quote

Do we really have to go over that a third time? It's not rocket science. Go watch the end of the original and then the scene with Chris. It's obvious what they were doing.


Quote
I don't recall the scenes showing Jason receiving emergency medical care.
I never said he did receive emergency medical care.

You're trying to have it both ways. Your supernatural fantasy is allowed to happen offscreen but anything that goes against it must have scenes to show it occurred.

I don't need links showing how he would've died. Since we cant recall scenes showing medical care, we also cant recall how serious or deep these wounds really were.

Why not just admit you were wrong instead of attempting to save face? The fact is there is a clear distinction between the two terms.
Quote
The terms paranormal and supernatural are often tossed around to mean the same thingsomething we dont understand. Theyre actually two separate terms, though. Paranormal refers to something thats not understood by current scientific knowledge; theres the potential that something paranormal will someday be explained scientifically, and theres a likelihood theres a good, natural explanation for it. Supernatural refers to a phenomenon that is beyond our capability to understand, now and simply forever, because it just doesnt operate under our rules.

Why are you applying limits to supernatural resurrection? Anyhow Jason drowned as a boy, his body was never recovered so his body was rotting in the water for a long time before being resurrected.

Now that you mention it Shelly did survive for an incredible amount time with that terrible slashed throat. Bad editing only applies if we consider  the production side otherwise it's just an excuse. As the viewer we are in another dimension apart from production. We're shown Jason without Rob's body, how one interprets it getting to the Jarvis it up to them but the door remains open for Pamela.

We shown an altar with her head and shirt. We're shown her grave that looked to be recently exhumed. Then we see her attacking Chris and yet you can't find hint for a resurrected Pamela. :D

Yes, if we're going to discuss a fictional movie then you have to be able to support your view by what is shown in movie not what production may have intended. Go head and give your best explanation:
Quote

There were many scenes in 2-4 that showed Jason's supernatural healing and strength abilities. Do you really think a man could crush someone's skull with their bare hands or toss a man the size of Rick through a window? Go watch part 2 you can clearly seen the machete is well below Jason's collarbone that equals a sliced subclavavian artery. You never included any proof of anyone surviving a drop hanging or explained how the investigators failed to find Jason pulse with an axe in head. Each prove supernatural.

the discussion was tolerable for awhile but I'm not being talked down to.....especially over a goddamn fringe nerd fantasy. Go ahead and believe his mother is the killer in later sequels and whatever other nonsense you can conjure up. You'll provide a bit of comic relief to those around you who get the pleasure of hearing these theories.

We're now going in circles anyways.

I proved you were wrong with a link. If someone said to you that Jason's mask is pink I'm sure you'd try to prove them wrong. If you're unable to support your views and feel your only course of action is to forfeit the discussion fine, but don't suggest the idea it's because I was talking down to you.

Its not easy to have discussions with people who believe the ghost of a killer's mother is a murderer in later sequels when it was never even implied by the filmmakers.

I tried....

This is a really small community. Practically on life support. Another reason to just end it before the discussion winds up completely asinine.

I'll see ya in other threads I assume....unlesss that theory of yours is your bread and butter.

I proved you wrong on supernatural vs paranormal and that Jason exhibited supernatural strength and healing abilities. You supported your views until I posted evidence that favored mine then you were ready to abandoned the discussion citing a silly excuse. That's far worse for the integrity of these threads than any fan theory. I actually like to hear other people's ideas and theories regarding the series and I'm sure others do as well.
