Friday the 13th Part 3 is one of my favorite movies to finally have the iconic hockey mask and his favorite weapon choice. I liked how the movie sets up in a big house in the middle of the forest where the movie can have a dark atmosphere when Jason can pop out. But I didn't like the 3D effects that made it look so goofy instead of being that gruesome.
This movie was great, with that ending chase-fight with Ginny and Jason. The baghead design was nice, especially because EVERY other appearance is with the Hockey Mask. The weapons he used were also a change, with the Curved Machete and stuff.
When Helen goes back and sees the mural of his murder, the camera lingers on a woman in the picture that looks like her. This is the woman Candyman was in love with before he was killed. The implication is either she was reincarnated as Helen, or Helen reminded him of her, hence his interest in her.
I thought it was brilliant the first original will always be a classic but this definitely took a step up to make Candyman even more scary and dangerous. This film could never be called Candyman without Tony Todd. He does an excellent job at portraying characters that have a very ominous presence in horror films :) The acting was sooo on point. Most horror movies I've seen don't seem to really bring out the fear in people when acting but with Candyman they succeed in showing how even though some myths and legends r just stories u also can't help the fact that they also serve as warnings like they said 'Don't say his name' that is a tell tale sign that watever ur messing with is dangerous and should be left alone but in the end the legends and myths will always find a way out of the shadows of its past :) All Hail Tony Todd and Jordan Peele for bringing a masterpiece back to life :D And a big Excellent Job To Nia who worked with Peele as well too make this film come to life :) Please review the movie on ur own and don't follow the critics opinions cause u never know when a movie is really good or not :) I would have liked to seen more of tony Todd but then I got to thinking that if he showed himself every minute in the film like the original (which I didn't mind at all in the original) I'd start feeling like I'm watching Halloween instead. So I'm glad they hid him except for the kills cause he is an entity so he's not a stalker serial killer type villain, he's more of like a cthulu character, he invokes his own sense of madness to the characters cause once they say his name the characters can't tell if he's real and people r actually being killed by CandyMan or if he's just in their head and nobody nows if that character is trying to be a copycat killer or if they've just lost their minds completely.
