It’s Friday, and you know what that means. New episode of “Kill Count”!
The third installment in the Friday the 13th franchise, released in 1982, is notable for a couple of big reasons. For starters, it was the first (and only) film in the series that brought Jason into the world of three-dimensions, which was kind of a big deal at the time. But more importantly, of course, Friday the 13th Part 3 was the film that saw Jason obtain his iconic hockey mask.
In the latest episode of YouTube series “Kill Count,” host James A. Janisse takes a closer look at Friday the 13th Part 3, paying particular attention to the film’s various kill scenes. A grand total of 12 people die in Part 3, the highest body count for the franchise at the time, and James highlights the coolest and lamest of those kills – actually, they’re one and the same this time around.
My personal favorite kill in Friday Part 3? Andy, who gets chopped in half while doing a handstand. It’s one of the series’ most brutal death scenes, and I cringe every single time.
