The tender, tragic saga of Jason Vorhees, the world's unhappiest camper, continues when yet another batch of hormonally advanced teens decide to ignore past history and spend some time at the woodsy, pine-scented slaughterhouse known as Camp Crystal Lake. It may be a bit of a stretch to describe any of the entries in this interminable series as "good," but this creatively grotesque installment manages to come surprisingly close with a welcome sense of humor and some quick glimmers of real menace (courtesy of director Steve Miner, who would later go on to helm the far more accomplished Halloween: H20). Originally presented in 3-D, which explains the never-ending slew of objects (knives, pitchforks, yo-yos, cats, eyeballs, etc.) that are repeatedly thrust in the viewer's general direction. --Andrew Wright

video.it was the first horror movie i had ever seen,and it scared the
crap out of me.i had nightmares for days.but,that was then,this is
now.this time,around,i wasn't scared.in fact i found the movie to be
boring in parts.plus,this movie was originally filmed in 3D,so it looks
gimmicky(and annoying)when viewed in 2D,since there are no 3D glasses
with it.and there is no option to view it without the 3D.(since then a
3D version has come out).this particular edition is part of the 5 disc
box set From Crystal Lake to Manhattan and features the first 8 movies
in the series,along with a bonus disc of special features.anyway,to
me,this movie is a bit more mundane than the previous 2.plus,Jason(the
killer)swaggers around like a macho man,which is laughable.my vote for
Friday the 13th Part III is a 2/5
Having escaped an attack from a deformed, mad killer a year earlier, Christy (Dana Kimmell) comes back to the property to prove something to herself, but all she really proves is that she's an idiot. Of course, she's apparently oblivious to the fact that Jason had just killed a gaggle of camp counselors the day before (although her old boyfriend Rick, being a local, certainly should have heard something about it).Read more ›
This is a 3-D TV system that uses special shutter glasses that can be purchased here through Amazon in a set that includes 3 DVD's using this process. This system Is the only way to view a 3-D film effectively on TV to date. The result is about 90% close to the effect you will see in a theatre showing.. like IMAX and Disney and Universal.
These glasses are made of sturdy plastic and clear not these cardboard red and blue pieces of garbage, so you can view the film without constricted to seeing red and blue colors and with this system you will see more actual 3-D depth with the films true colors.. It's really amazing!
For some add reason the big studios haven't adapted to include a separate version of a 3-D title in this great format.
"House of Wax","Kiss Me Kate","Friday the 13th Part 3", "Robot Monster, "Cat Woman on the Moon", "Creature from the Black Lagoon" and "Jaws 3" are all now in 2-D DVD, but were originally shown in 3-D and could have been included using the Field Seqential 3-D system on the same disc with the 2-D version.
In Japan in the late 80's there were a few 3-D titles released using Field Sequential and can be found on e-bay converted to DVD and VHS.
Why aren't the studios producing these now!
I boycott any film DVD release that was originally intended to be seen in 3-D that's only presented in a 2-D version or anaglyph (Red and Blue Glasses).
Especially this movie should have included 3-D, Because the effects are great in this one!
BTW... as for that new box set that stinky Paramount is releasing of all their Friday films don't expect much! and no 3-D part 3.. oh well
The studios should really be awaken to this great 3-D system.

the movie was good but I wish they would tell you when you have to use
there glasses as I would perfer to use my own glasses that come with
my 3d tv.
Never mind the movie... they don't bother to tell you that the tape is recorded at slow 6hr speed (EP/SLP). Damn, what a rip-off!! Read morePublished on Oct. 19 2005 by Undead1
