The Month of Horror Day 11: Friday the 13th Part III

Basement contributor Matt Bellamy has taken it upon himself to watch and review at least one horror movie a day for the month of October . . . because he's awesome that way! This eve, Bellamy dissects one of the most complex and compelling films of all time.

The one where Jason gets his mask!

That could pretty much be it, hey? What else of significance really happens in this sequel? Well, it was in 3D so that's something! Nothing beats those tremendous "3D effects" of the 80's (what's up 'Jaws 3D'?), with those awesome and stylish blue and red cardboard glasses! Radical! 'Friday the 13th' is my favourite horror series, even over 'Nightmare' because I am a fan of trash. This series is not particularly well made, the directing is always pedestrian, the acting laughable and the plots are essentially all the same but that's the charm! You basically end up rooting for Jason the entire time and cheer whenever he creatively, and viciously, murders some idiot teenager! This was the entry where he came into his own as well and truly became JASON VOORHEES as we all know him, donning that iconic hockey mask and tossing aside the burlap sack or whatever from the movie before.

So, what happens in this third entry? I shall sum it up:

A guy gets chopped in half.

A dude gets his eyeball squeezed out, and that's pretty sweet.

Some chick gets a spear shot into her eye.

Another gets stabbed with a pitchfork.

Guy gets electrocuted.

Then Jason dies BUT NOT REALLY.

It's no 'Jason Takes Manhattan' but it's still pretty darn entertaining! If you've seen the others then I'm sure you've checked this one out, too. 'Friday The 13th' ain't for everyone but for those who dig it, naturally it makes you that much cooler than everyone else! More Jason, keep him coming!
