Tired of only celebrating patriotic holidays in July? Well, Jackpot Records has got your back when in comes to commemorating the spookiest day outside of Halloween (and/or secretaries day). Tomorrow night, they're hosting a rare theatrical screening of Friday the 13th part III as it was originally released back in 1982...in 3D!!!
This third chapter in the co-ed slaying adventures of Jason Voorhees was directed by Steve Miner, who also helmed the second film in the series, as well as the far scarier, mid-80s C. Thomas Howell vehicle Soul Man.
Here's a little more info, plucked straight from Jackpot's press release for the event:
Friday the 13th Part III is the third film in the Friday the 13th series. Released in 1982, it was the first film in the series to feature Jason Voorhees wearing the hockey mask that has become his prominent trademark. Friday the 13th Part III was released theatrically in 3-D, and is notable as the first Paramount Pictures film produced in 3-D since 1954.
This 1982 film, upon it's initial release mainly played the drive-in circuit and was rarely shown in 3D. Now, we are giving you another chance to catch all manner of sharp objects being thrust your direction...and if you're lucky an eyeball might pop onto your lap!
Friday the 13th part III in 3D plays one-night-only at the Bagdad Theater on Friday, July 13th at 8pm. More info available here.
