victim of Jason Voorhees returns to Crystal Lake to face her fear and brings

for them, Jason is waiting and ready to kill again.
Only this time, it is three-dimensional.
Review: I basically only have two gripes
about this film. The first being
that fact that Paramount has never taken the time or consideration to release
this film in 3-D. Though the film
works ‘flat,’ the gimmicks of the 3-D effect only hamper what otherwise
would be a solid entry in the series. Having
seen the film in both formats, I prefer the film in 3-D, but I will not
‘not’ watch the film simply because of the technology that was used to
second gripe…Dana Kimmell. Though
many will disagree and consider her a favorite, the girl simply cannot act.
The Friday films are notorious for not maybe having the best acting in
films, but the casting agent must have been off the day that Dana received the
call to report for filming. She
is most defiantly the films weakest link.
And the one that most hated the graphic nature of the film (which makes
you wonder if she did indeed read the script period.)
two things aside…the film is one of my favorites. The remaining cast in enjoyable and the writing, though
rather stale, isn’t near as bad as what some make it out to be. This
is also the film that gave Jason a ‘face,’ and a trademark that forever
would remind the world of Jason and his bloody legacy.
On the up side: Enjoyable film. The
biggest problem with the film isn’t really the films fault; it just simply
should not have been the one to follow up the second entry.
the downside: unless you are lucky enough to be able to catch this film at a
3-D film festival, you are more than likely not going to be able to enjoy the
film for what it is…that being one of the best uses of 3-D that was ever on
