This is the film that Jason Voorhees becomes the icon, as he dons the hockey mask for the first time. This of course, is not the "new dimension" of horror, but rather that the film is 3-D. Considering the time period, the sight gags can be a little less than the spectacular effects they've come to pull off over the years. You can see wires at points. You are aware of the somewhat less than thought out set-up of scenes, but the film is truly a gem of 80s 3-D slasher nostalgia. There is a good reason this film is in my collection.

This is personally my second favorite of the Friday the 13th movies. It's got awesomely goofy opening credits and is the most blatantly 80's of the series. It was 3D back when that meant silly things popping out of the screen at you, like the awning of a convenience store. The story is pretty good. It's set right after Part 2 - the opening has the classic 'they're carting the previous final girl off in an ambulance while she laughs madly" opener that a lot of Friday the 13th movies wound up using. Jason is not dead as it turns out. He's headed back to town to terrorize the locals before following another group of campers back out into the woods. This final girl also has a creepy backstory involving Jason that plays out later in the movie. She is back at her folks cabin with her buddies to get over her lifelong fear of the place. She has very bad timing. This is also one of the first Friday the 13th movies where bad guys show up to get killed by Jason before he starts in on the heroes. In this case, a punk rock biker gang who hassles the kids at that convenience store and then follows them back to the cabin. This is by far not the scariest of the Friday the 13th movies, but it sure is fun to watch.

This has to be my only favorite out of the other friday the 13th films maybe Jason X. This one is entertaining but can't remember if this was the one where he wore that hockey mask or if he had the machete but I think this one for his weapon he has some ax. Alright movie though.

The first in the series... as far as slasher pic goes... not bad... suspense is pretty good, but the film's notorious death sequences/Betsy Palmer's nut-case character and Harry Manfredini's excellent score are the show-stoppers... Take it or leave it... it is a classic...

This was when jason found the mask which is cool since that is his trademark. Good if you're a fan but otherwise, you wont like it
