      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Jason may solidify his iconic wardrobe in this entry, but Friday the 13th Part 3 lacks any other distinguishing features, relying on a tired formula of stab and repeat.

      Albert R Classic Jason movie! If you're a fan of this series, how can you not watch the one where he gets his mask on the big screen?? Plus, modern-day quality 3-D?! Guaranteed fun time! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/14/22 Full Review Ben T Jason is back to his old ways, killing anyone who gets in his way. This marks the debut of Jason's hockey mask, which became a trademark for the series and Jason himself. The body count is even higher, but despite being filmed in 3D, it's pretty much the same old thing. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/17/24 Full Review Andrzej W The kills aren't quite there yet but finally some nice brutality and tense moments, fights. Love the characters in this one. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/14/24 Full Review Me D So we have Jason's iconic hockey mask… This franchise should've ended at 1. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 04/13/24 Full Review inso80 All the good votes are for the mask. That's it. That tells you what you need to know about this movie. Just know that he gets the mask out of nowhere. There. I saved you an hour and a half of your life. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 04/08/24 Full Review Samuel V More of the same, which might have not been dramatic if the first two movies weren't pretty bad as well. No real story, just senseless killing.

      Jeremiah Kipp Slant Magazine Shot in such a way to capitalize on the brief fad of Reagan-era 3D movies, there's less memorable POV shots from the killer and more images from the perspective of the victims. Rated: 1.5/4 Feb 4, 2009 Full Review Variety Staff Variety Friday the 13th was dreadful and took in more than $17 million. Friday the 13th Part 2 was just as bad and took in more than $10 million. Friday the 13th Part III is terrible, too. Aug 6, 2008 Full Review Janet Maslin New York Times Eventually, the novelty wears off, and what remains is the now-familiar spectacle of nice, dumb kids being lopped, chopped and perforated. Rated: 2/5 Aug 30, 2004 Full Review Alan Jones Starburst Although Friday the 13th. Part III 3-D works on an instant gut reaction level, I don't think it can really be recommended to anyone but hard-core dyed-in-the-wool fans. Jul 29, 2022 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy More of the same. Rated: 1.5/4 Aug 21, 2021 Full Review Jay Boyar Buffalo Courier-Express Suppose that you're intrigued by the special three-dimensional effects but totally repulsed by the movie's mindless carnage. Then you've got yourself a problem. Rated: 3/5 Sep 22, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
