Friday the 13th Part III ( Film)

----Haunted Six----

Friday the 13th Part III (Film)

Friday the 13th Part III is the third film in the Friday the 13th series. The 1982 movie was the first film in the series to feature Jason Voorhees wearing a hockey mask that has become synonymous with the character and his image. The film was released theatrically in 3-D. Much like its sequel Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter, this film was intended to end the series. Unlike its sequel and the later film, Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday, this film did not include a moniker in its title to indicate as such.


Picking up one day after the events of Friday the 13th Part 2, deformed serial killer Jason Voorhees has survived his attack at the hands of Paul and Ginny, and has migrated to a store where he changes clothes and kills the store owners before moving on to a nearby lake front property named Higgins Haven.

At the same time, a girl named Chris, who was attacked by a mysterious, disfigured stranger in the woods near Crystal Lake two years earlier, returns to the property with her friends Debbie, Andy, Shelly, Vera, Chuck and Chili. On the road they meet Abel, a drunk religious fanatic who found an eyeball (and other body parts) and kept it as proof of God. The kids drive away and later meet Chris' boyfriend Rick at their destination. Chris intends to face their fears, however none of the kids know that an unmasked and reclusive Jason has taken refuge in the barn. Shelly and Vera get into trouble with a biker gang who then comes to Higgins Haven for revenge. However, they are dealt with by Jason before they can do any real damage except for siphoning gas from Chris' van.

While Chris and Rick take a drive, Shelly, is denied by Vera and decides to search for Chuck and Chili in the barn. Jason slashes Shelly's throat and takes his hockey mask (off-screen). Now with a mask to cover his face, he then proceeds to murder the rest of the gang. When Chris and Rick return to find the place empty, they split up to find out what's going on. Rick is attacked by Jason who squeezes his head until one of his eyeballs pops out.

Jason then attacks Chris, the two exchanging attacks until Chris leads Jason to the barn. She seemingly defeats Jason by placing a noose around his neck and hanging him. Jason survives the hanging and shows his real face to Chris and she recognizes him as the man who attacked her two years earlier. As Jason proceeds to attack Chris, one of the bikers (Ali), who survived his attack earlier, attempts his revenge but meets his end. While Jason is busy hacking up Ali, Chris picks up an axe and strikes Jason in the head, killing him. Chris then wanders over to the lake and falls asleep in a canoe that drifts into the middle of the lake. The next morning, Chris wakes up and sees Jason unmasked and alive staring at her through an upstairs window in the house, smiling. When he spots her, he runs out to attack and when Chris tries to escape, is grabbed and taken into the water by a decomposing Mrs. Voorhees. It is revealed that this was all a nightmare, and at some point later, the police take a clearly mentally disturbed Chris off the property as the camera fades out on Jason's dead body.
