Watch the Teaser for Upcoming ‘Friday the 13th Part 3’ Documentary

A new fan doc explores the new dimension in terror.

The Friday the 13th franchise has been covered in a couple documentaries over the years, including His Name Was Jason and Crystal Lake Memories, but there’s always room for more stories about the series. What makes this documentary unique, however, is that it’s focused not on the decades-spanning saga but rather on one film: 1982’s Friday the 13th Part 3.

Why an entire documentary about that one film? Well, the third installment in the Friday the 13th franchise is nothing if not a pivotal one. In addition to being one of the most beloved sequels in the entire series, it’s of course the one where Jason Voorhees acquired his iconic hockey mask, and it’s also the film that brought Voorhees into three-dimensions. But more than anything, the doc aims to pay tribute to Richard “Jason” Brooker, who unfortunately passed away back in 2013.

Director Kevin R. Phipps explains:

In April 2013, the Friday the 13th family suddenly lost Mr. Richard Brooker. Portraying Jason in Friday the 13th part 3, he was the first individual to don the now iconic hockey mask. Richard was a terrific human being & a friend to all.

In addition, the Higgins Haven cabin used in the film was burned down by some careless vagrants in 2006. These two events sparked us into action to do something with the one of a kind on location video footage we shot from 2003 & 2005. It was the last footage and photography shot before the set’s demise in 2006.

The project has grown leaps and bounds over the past year & continues to bring on board various Friday the 13th alumni that starred in part 3 as well friends of Richard’s that are still working in the film industry today. Their interviews are pivotal in giving the backstory of the production of part 3 as well as insight into the man Richard Brooker was.

This documentary’s intentions are to preserve the memory of this movie & Richard Brooker.

Check out the teaser for Friday the 13th Part 3: The Memoriam Documentary below.

    Can’t wait to get to see this! Richard Brooker was immortalized by having been the first to don the goalie mask. This looks to be very interesting, and a great addition to the docs on the series.

    • Saturn

      No, he wasn’t.
      That would be Larry Zerner!

  • Jason Scarpelli

    The dvd of “His Name Was Jason” was good

  • oh_riginal

    Now if only there would be a re-release of part 3 with proper 3D technology instead of the red & blue glasses version! Although I once heard that the DVD and the blu-ray are not sourced from the same camera, meaning it COULD be possible to create a 3D image if one knew how to combine those two. I wouldn’t know how to do it, or else I would.

  • lupe

    Yes! This is my favorite F13 sequel.

  • REC03

    Not my favorite but definitely an overall solid entry. Great final chase scene and the 3D is unintentionally hilarious. I hated the location they picked though, it just didn’t have that great atmosphere and Camp Crystal Lake was more like Camp Crystal Puddle.

  • Flu-Like Symptoms

    This was surprisingly not stupid.
