We recently reported on a tell-all documentary in the works about Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday. Today, we learned about another Friday documentary; this one focuses on Friday the 13th Part 3 and is available to stream in its entirety. Best of all, it’s completely free!
Per Bloody Disgusting:
Director Kevin R. Phipps explained last year, “In April 2013, the Friday the 13th family suddenly lost Mr. Richard Brooker. Portraying Jason in Friday the 13th part 3, he was the first individual to don the now-iconic hockey mask. Richard was a terrific human being & a friend to all. In addition, the Higgins Haven cabin used in the film was burned down by some careless vagrants in 2006. These two events sparked us into action to do something with the one of a kind on location video footage we shot from 2003 & 2005.“
He continued, “The project has grown leaps and bounds over the past year & continues to bring on board various Friday the 13th alumni that starred in part 3 as well friends of Richard’s that are still working in the film industry today. Their interviews are pivotal in giving the backstory of the production of part 3 as well as insight into the man Richard Brooker was. This documentary’s intentions are to preserve the memory of this movie & Richard Brooker.”
