Stalk ‘n’ SlashCinema :: A New Dimension in Terror… (August, 1982)



















If it weren’t for the Jason-less installment in A New Beginning and the whole mountain of stupid that was Jason takes Manhattan (– not to mention that piece of @#$% Platinum Dunes put out a few years ago), Friday the 13th Part 3 3D would probably be championed as the worst of the franchise that is very dear to me. I honestly don’t know what triggered the resurgent 3-D boom in the early 1980’s, but several serial sequels serendipitously lined up to have another consonant added to their third installments. And to add insult to injury, for those of us who always preferred Mr. Potato Sack Head, even the Hockey Mask is all Shelley’s fault. Thanks a lot, jerk.

    Agree on your take on this flick, but man, what an amazingly random assortment of movies to be out at the same time. Zapped, E.T., Friday the 13th 3-D and a re-release of Star Wars.

    What started the 80’s 3-D boom was the huge success of the frickin’ awesome spag-western ‘Comin’ At Ya!’.
