Alternate Versions

The original ending of Jason cutting off Chris head was meant to be a dream sequence. It was followed by Chris waking up screaming in the back of the police car. This "dream" scene was cut and replaced by the other "dream" scene with Jason's rotted mother jumping out of the lake and grabbing Chris. See more »

A review of the 3-D theatrical version
17 April 1999 | by CuriosityKilledShawnSee all my reviews

Last night, the Cameo Cinema in Edinburgh, screened an ultra-rare showing of Friday the 13th Part 3 in all it's gore-splattered 3D glory. The cinema was packed, the screening sold out and the audience absolutely loved it. Every scare worked, the 3D effects leaped right off the screen and lovingly poked us in the eye and when the film was over it got the longest applause I've ever seen a film get. For those pretentious cynics who think that the Friday the 13th films are not great then there's nothing like a 350+ audience to prove you wrong.

Since this film was in 'polarised' 3D (see-thru glasses instead of a red-blue blur)then it's not possible to transfer the effect to DVD. Besides, nothing beats seeing this on the big screen with Jason's face 10-feet tall and his massive hands reaching out for you. If there is EVER a 3D screening of this then you really ought to go see, even if you have to sell your own grandmother for a ticket.
