I remember all of us laughing at the 3-d in the theater. Popcorn?
IT does stink except for Jason.....He is full of joy! "Yeah it was ME who chased you last year"
The flashback of him chasing the main girl is one of the creepiest sequences in the whole series. There's actually some real suspense, and they just shy enough away from letting you see his face.
Our only experience with him was from part 2 and knowing he never failed is what made that chase so great......why he didn't kill her just makes it more interesting by accident.....does he merely molest or something sometimes? Well, there never was an answer to that unfinished kill.
It's like part 3 is this weird mix of the worst and best elements of the series in one movie.
I also love part 5 for it's entertainment value. It's hilarious. The real Jason does actually appear in visions to Tommy Jarvis so he is indeed in the movie unlike popularly claimed, even if he's not the killer.
I love hillbilly Ethel and her slightly-younger-than-herself son. He's incompetent but she's good in that part.
If find it more enjoyable than part 6 (except for the prologue which the movie does not live up to) The Sheriff is the most hateful "non-believing adult" in the history of cinema. After what everyone knows has transpired in the area, he simply will not believe Jarvis for one solitary second.......And the rest of the movie blows. It might be the worst of the bunch sans the prologue.
I think people recall this one fondly because of the prologue and not the movie itself....and the James Bond rip-off title sequence....that WAS cool but the movie? Part 5 entertains me but 6 just doesn't.
Part 4 is vastly over-rated in my opinion. It just looks a little better than the previous ones.
He morphs from believably f'd up human to a Salem's Lot/Elephant Man in 0 seconds screen time since it starts ) seconds after part 3 ends.
After part 6, we didn't expect scares anymore, just laughs.
His teleportation skills were the only frightening thing about the post 6 Fridays.
We went to Jason Takes Manhattan piling in the car laughing our asses of before even entering the theater. And the non deformed Jason boy at the end? Oh wow......what a slap in the goalie mask
