The Movie Itself:
Friday 3D was the highest grossing movies in the Friday the 13th series, and it was undefeated until Freddy vs Jason came out, but was it because the movie was great, or for the 3D effect. I believe it was a combination of 3D and having a more wider audience range, because of the lack of s/x and nudity. There is a partial s/x scene in it, but it's not detailed, and it doesn't show anything, and then there's a shower scene, where nothing is really shown. The movie isn't extremely gorey either. So, with all of these things combined, even a younger audience (13 year olds or so) could have seen it in theaters.

But is the movie good? The movie is generally bad. Most of the actors in this movie had never been in a movie before, and the director wanted to focus on the 3d effect more than the acting. It's considered one of the best 3D movies of the 1980s.

Most, if not all of the extras are in HD. This is pretty rare, as most releases just have the standard def stuff copies over from their DVD releases and may have just 1 or 2 things in HD. This includes some interviews with the director, one of the actors, a stunt person, and a 2 or two other people, who kind of reflect on the movie.

Video Quality:
The video quality was better than I anticipated. After the standard definition DVD release, which got very bad reviews for picture quality, I expected the worst, but to me, this is a very solid transfer, and the 3d effects are great. In most of the film, there is depth perception, which is all that you can ask for in anaglyph 3D.

Audio Quality:
This movie contains the original mono soundtrack as well as a newly mastered 5.1 truehd soundtrack, and the new soundtrack sounds good but is very front-heavy. There is pretty much a complete lack of bass. In scary moments that usually catch you in a element of surprise in new movies, a lot of bass is used, but in this one, a high-pitched screeching sound is used. There are a few parts in this movie where it works really well, and if you aren't ready for some stuff that jumps out at you (not really in 3d but just in general) then it will make you jump!

Conclusion:
This will definitely be a movie you can watch every once in awhile with you friends or (older) kids. The movie only comes with 2 pairs of 3d glasses, however. So, you'll need to purchase more from ebay or somewhere. You can buy the throwaway glasses for around .50 per pair in bulk, or you can buy plastic glasses for around $5-$10 per pair. The acting itself is rather cheesy, but it can be a fun experience!

I read a review on the blu-ray version of this earlier today, and you know, this dude gave it a bad review because "the things weren't coming out of the screen like they did in the theater"... These people must not realize that the out of the screen stuff takes special reflective screens, reflective glasses, and dual lenses or dual projectors.

I watched this again on another tv, one that I thought had a better picture quality, and the 3d didn't work as well as with the first. I guess 3D works better on some tvs than others..

So it's been out over two years now, and the studios still haven't released a true3d version of this movie. My only guess as to why they haven't done so is the difference between the left and right images. One of the images has a pristine video quality, because it has been kept up and restored throughout the years. The other 'eye' image obviously is in worse shape. It could have easily been released unrestored like the anaglyph version, but since it hasn't, I really hope that it means the studio is taking its time to restore the true stereoscopic version.

As far as I know, this is the only feature film released on anaglyph 3D on blu-ray that hasn't gotten a true3d release so far. Journey to the Center of the Earth was the last one released.
