My favorite Friday the 13th installment, 19 July 2003
Author: allgood_2000 from Abingdon, VA

Although this installment was not too original, I thought it stood out from the others. If you watch the series in order, this is the first time the victims are just vacationing teenagers and not camp counselors. I also thought the character developement was better than the first two (yes, I know "character developement" and "slasher movies" aren't birds of a feather, but I though it worked in this particular slasher). I actually became attached to some of the characters and didn't want them them to die. Most people, however, think the time spent developing characters slowed the pace and made the movie boring. This was also the first Friday the 13th movie to have it's climax in a barn. I thought the fact that it took place on a ranch was kind of neat, I was getting kind of tired of camp.

Most of the death scenes were original, the gore level was average, not a whole lot of suspense (but what do you expect? This is Friday the 13th, not The Sixth Sense), but the characters were really cool. It had some continuity errors with the previous movies, so I'm deducting one point. 9 out of 10.
