    I could sit here and come up with some really lame reason why I watched Friday the 13th Part III tonight. The fact is, I watched it because it was on. I wasn’t watching all of the movies in the franchise or anything like that. I just stumbled across it right as it started and watched it all the way through, in spite of its badness. I don’t know if I’d consider myself a fan of slasher movies in general. I guess the original Halloween is considered a slasher movie but it’s different in that it actually has very little blood in it. The Friday the 13th movies started a couple years after and now number 12 movies. If you check out the full story on Wikipedia, it’s kinda fun to see how the story is so stupid but keeps trying to reinvent itself, even to the point where Jason meets Freddy from The Nightmare on Elm Street series.

    The first movie, released in 1980, was considered a huge success. Made for $500K, it made almost $60 million. A sequel was inevitable. It made about a third of the first one but still was enormously profitable so they kept coming.

    Friday the 13th Part III was originally released in 1982 and was presented in 3D. When 3D is done well and enhances the story, I really like it and appreciate it but here it was done as a gimmick and a bad one at that. Even watching it in standard format, the 3D scenes are so blatantly bad and obvious that it’s laughable. As I have always said, if you go into a movie like this expecting a masterpiece, you’re going to be disappointed but that’s on you. It isn’t meant to be that at all. It is what it is and even if it’s 11:30 at night, you still watch it because you can’t turn away from the train wreck.

    One final note. The character of Jason from the Friday the 13th franchise is well-known for his hockey mask. This is actually the first film that he wears it and has it from here on out.
