This film opens up with the ending scene from part two and shows Jason getting injured which leads us to part three. Jason goes to a local store to steal some clothes and winds up killing the couple that owns the store. After he kills the couple and gets his clothes Jason goes to a nearby barn and hides in it, so he can regain his strength. While Jason is hiding in the barn a girl named Chris Higgins and her friends go to spend a weekend at a house which happens to be right where the barn is. Now the girl Chris hasn’t been there in two years because some guy with a disfigured face chased her through the woods and she has been scared ever since. It was intense when she tells Rick the story and we actually see her struggling and trying to fight off Jason it was crazy and kind of makes us feel bad for Chris, the fact that she had to go through all of that and see that hideous face. Meanwhile Shelly and Vera take Ricks car and go to a store to get food and other stuff when they run into a bike gang that gives them problems. Shelly accidentally backs up into the gang members bike and the gang member freaks out and starts to break the windows of Shelly’s car. So in return Shelly comes back and runs over his bike in order to impress Vera which then causes the bike gang to follow them back to the house that they’re staying at and try to set the barn on fire. When they go to set the barn on fire Jason kills them and then starts to stalk the rest of the people. This story line was a little different from the first two films, being that it takes place with people just going to have a good time at a house instead of the camp counselor thing. Although the whole plot was still the same which is just Jason killing people that come by his territory. There were a lot of kills in this movie and after Jason kills Shelly he takes his hockey mask and puts it on so he can cover his face. This mask became such a key part of this franchise and wound up basically being Jason’s new identity. Overall I really loved the film. I honestly think that this movie was the best in the Friday the 13th franchise. We see a different story line that was pretty good. The kills in this movie were beyond amazing there were a lot of them and there was very good kill scenes. I was honestly so entertained throughout the whole movie it kept me on my feet and brought such great suspense as well. I really loved the way that they had him stalk his victims, it honestly makes the film so much better and scarier. I thought that them bringing in the hockey mask was such a great idea. I don’t know what it is but it really goes with this character and with these films. You can still see the hockey mask around till this day, especially on Halloween that is such a big costume for kids. The acting was also likable I think that they all did a good job bringing different characters into this movie and giving them specific personalities that made this film better. I really have no complaints about this amazing classic that is honestly my favorite film in the Friday the 13th franchise. If you haven’t seen this movie yet I absolutely recommend that you go watch it, you will not regret it!
I give this movie a 9/10
