The One Where Jason Gets His Mask – Friday the 13th Part III (1982) – CBP006

"Do you want a beer or not?"

Jason Voorhees (Richard Brooker) – Friday the 13th Part III

Friday the 13th Part III is the film that gave our favorite serial killer his iconic hockey mask. It was also the first, and last, Friday filmed in 3D. However, the 3D in this movie is as horrible as the opening credits music. The problem with the 3D is that it was used entirely too much to the point that the director used it in scenes that were only there to make use of the technology.

Discussion Points

  • Did you know that Ginny from Friday the 13th Part II was supposed to return?
  • Continuity between Part II and Part III
  • Rick is a dick
  • Crazy Ralph gets a nod
  • The other asshole Shelly
  • The Andy controversy

Listener Mail

“Why is jason's name never spoken in the film? Except the pre credit sequence?”

“I don't think Jason drown. I actually like to think that he ran away and the only conclusion Pamela and the authorities could come up with is that he drown. No body. No witnesses. Why would they think he drown other than the fact that mrs Voorhees probably would not/could not believe her beloved son would run away. But think about it, he had major disabilities. He was bullied at camp. And his only “friend” was his mom, who,more than likely, was a bit smothering and overly protective (as many single moms are). So I think he ran away and survived in the wilderness on his own. Like Ginny in pt2 said, eating animals and whatever he could find, a frightened retard (her word not mine ;)). I think he definitely witnessed his mother killing all the camp counselors off and even tried one himself, Brenda. Nothing about that kill points to Pamela. Even with her throwing her voice to sound like Jason, it wasn't the same voice that Brenda heard crying for help.”
