To read (and hear) the review of Friday the 13th, Part 3, click here. It is one of the better Friday The 13th movies, in that it only sucks a lot and isn’t utterly intolerable. It’s just a little bit neat because of the 3-D aspect. It’s a little more neat in 3-D on Blu-Ray. Not that it’s good now. Far from it. But the 3-D is just a tiny bit better on Blu-Ray, and the scares are just a tiny bit scarier with better 3-D. That’s about it. I truly noticed the effectiveness of the slightly scarier moments when my girlfriend nearly leapt off the couch and shrieked when Jason Voorhees aimed the spear gun at the screen and fired. The harpoon appears to leap out of the screen and into the living room, and it took a while for her to catch her breath. And I laughed and laughed.
No amount of added extras, special effects or high-definition will make Friday the 13th Part 3 good. It’s just a little bit better in Blu-Ray, out June 16th from Paramount Home Entertainment.
