'Friday The 13th Part III' Has The Best Theme Song Ever

Great theme music, or GREATEST theme music? You be the judge!

After mentioning that rad 8-Bit Jason Mask the other day, SyFy Channel must have been reading my mind because they played Friday The 13th Part 2 and Part 3 back to back last night.

The third installment starts by totally spoiling the shocker ending of Part 2 and then proceeds to assault your ears and mind with one of the most absurd horror film introductions of all time.

I forgot that as the camera fades off Mama Voorhees dessicated head, the intense disco sounds of Harry Manfredini and his group "HOT ICE" inappropriately bombard your senses while the opening credits literally SHOOT OFF THE SCREEN IN 3-D!

Watching the below video will make your life better. I promise.

PS: This is the first Friday The 13th that Jason wore a hockey mask in.

PPS: If Harry Manfredini is still alive, he needs to write a new album.


  1. Never played Nightmare on Elm Street, though I remember playing a lot of Friday the 13th. I played it before I understood the concept of "bad video games". I would usually wander around aimlessly until I got into a cabin and that freaky music would kick in. Then out of the blue, Jason would show up and kill me. I'm pretty sure in my hours of playing it that I never actually made any progress in it.

  2. I had a similar experience. I remember renting FT13 on NES from the mom&pop video store near me, and playing it for hours, making almost NO progress because I couldn't figure out what items to get or how to keep kids from dying. I just remember wolves and "zombies" killing me in the forest, and everyone jumping really slow.

    Come to think of it, I had almost the same story to tell about Castlevania 2: Simon's Quest...
