Originally filmed in 3D, Friday The 13th Part III is pretty hilarious, I mean terrifying, on home video, with not only murderous pitchforks and axes coming straight at you, but also juggling fruit, tossed wallets and yo-yos flying within inches of hitting you in the face (well, that was the desired effect). A group of teens merely trying to have a nice a weekend at a farmhouse near Camp Crystal Lake, despite its deadly legacy, are forced to fend off not only a revenge-seeking motorcycle gang, but also Jason, sporting his signature hockey mask.

The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD exhibits good quality, with generally sharp and detailed images that tend to fly at the camera due to the film being shot in 3-D. Sometimes this 2-D video picture has a soft, smeared quality. Contrast and shadow delineation are mediocre, lacking visual information in the darker scenes. The picture looks a bit dated, with colors that are just shy of full saturation
Reason #7 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Truth is, there is no other magazine, on-line or in print, that covers the substantive issues, controversies, and current topics of the A/V world with as much relevance and detail as WSR does without forcing the reader to filter out the bias of the reviewer. Some other notable sources of information are top-heavy with reviews suffering from too much coloration: the golden eyes or ears syndrome. I prefer the clinical analysis of WSR with a touch of humor thrown in, to make for better reading. Thanks for giving me the facts and helping me with my buying decisions.
