Tagline: A New Dimension In Terror...
Plot: Jason Voorhees (Richard Brooker) returns again to Camp Crystal Lake, where he drowned nearly three decades before while some negligent camp counselors made out on the beach. Understandably upset by this turn of events, Jason continues to haunt his old stomping grounds, dealing death to those thrill-seeking teens who venture into the woods. This time around, Jason faces tougher victims in the form of a motorcycle gang and dons his trademark hockey mask.

Steve Miner's direction is just as good, if not better, than Friday the 13th Part 2. He creates some great action sequences, and does a good job of keeping Jason in the shadows for most of the film... Good story, good atmosphere, likable characters, great music, (sometimes)original and gory murders, and Jason gets his hockey mask!
--Ian Button (Diabolical-Dominion.com)
With the funkiest musical score of the series and originally shot in 3-D at the time of release this was the weakest of the series (it's still down there but part five holds that distinction).
...the gimmick is that the film boasts '3d' effects, yet this has little bearing on the small screen and you realise just how bad the film is. And the fact is the 3D itself seems contrived and badly done! ... The scares are all predictable and there is nothing "new" to this after the first two parts.

|Things are slow up until the end, but the climax offers a huge pay off, with the new damsel in distress (Dana Kimmell) pitted alone against Jason in a nice, long third act.|
All in all, a nice rental for any casual or diehard FtF fan. If you're not a fan, I'd watch later films in the series before I popped this one in the VCR (or DVD player)...Jason seems to be an acquired taste.
