Friday the 13th Part 3 is a 1982 horror film directed by Steve Miner. It was the first film in the series to feature Theatrical posterAdded by Landon TurnerJason's trademark hockey mask, which he wears through the majority of the film. Friday the 13th part 3 was released theatrically in 3D and is notable as the first Paramount Pictures film produced in 3D since 1954. The film stars Dana Kimmell, Richard Brooker, Paul Kratka, Tracie Savage, and Larry Zerner.


Jason (now in glorious 3-D) leaves his cabin after his showdown with Ginny and comes to a roadside store where he gains a new set of clothes - and kills the owner and his wife.

Meanwhile, Chris and her friends make their way to her family cabin, Higgins Haven. The party includes Chris' boyfriend Rick, the pregnant Debbie and her boyfriend Andy, the bong-tokin' Chuck and Chili, Vera, and Shelly, an overweight kid given to gruesome pranks.

At a local store, Vera and Shelly are confronted by a trio of bikers and Shelly drives into their motorcycles. The bikers, Ali, Loco and Fox, make their way to Higgins Haven for retribution, where they siphon the gas from the van. Before that happens, though, they're killed by Jason.

That night, while Chris and Rick are off in the woods, Jason slits Shelly's throat and takes his hockey mask. Wearing the mask, he dispatches Vera with a speargun. In the house, Andy is split in half while walking on his hands and Debbie is stabbed from beneath her hammock. Chuck is killed in the cellar while looking at the fuses, and Chili is impaled with a hot fireplace poker.

Returning to an empty cabin, Chris and Rick investigate. When they're separated, Jason kills Rick by crushing his head with his bare hands. Jason throws his body through the window at Chris, who flees in the van. But when it stalls (from being siphoned), Chris has to flee back to the barn on foot for the 3-D showdown. . .

In the end, Chris hangs Jason with a rope from the second floor of the barn. However, he survives. As he is removing the rope from his neck, his face is revealed, and Chris recognizes him as the one who attacked her once before. As Jason is about to kill her, Ali, the biker who (alone of the three bikers) survived his encounter with Jason, attacks him in revenge, but is brutally killed. While Jason is distracted, Chris hits him in the head with an axe.

Afterwards, she goes out on a boat in the middle of Crystal Lake. She sees Jason walking around inside the barn, and then is pulled under the water by the rotting corpse of Mrs. Voorhees. However, it is later revealed that this was just a hallucination, and Chris, clearly mentally disturbed, is taken away from the camp, while Jason still lays on the ground...
