Friday the 13th Part III
Presented with Indy Film Fest.
Fun and violent, this would-be finale for the series of Friday the 13th turned out to be just the beginning for Jason Vorhees. Part III marked the first time Voorhees’ iconic hockey mask would appear and marks the self-awareness Part IV and subsequent slasher films would use to make fun of themselves before critics could. Many tried and true horror tropes make appearances in this chilling summer blockbuster of ’82; see if you can spot them all!
Directed by Steven Miner, 1982, 95 minutes, R.
