The only thing more terrifying than John Holmes in 3-D is Jason Voorhees in 3-D. In the latest installment of Comedy-Death Ray, Doug Benson presents Friday the 13th Part 3 (1982). The live commentary by endlessly baked comedian Benson is accompanied by actor Larry Zerner, who played Shelly, the cutup who gets cut up by Jason on one of those typically horrible nights at Camp Crystal Lake. The Friday the 13th series, rebooted last year by Michael Bay, has for 30 years remained a paragon of Hollywood ambivalence. Paramount made a half billion dollars off the franchise, yet due to its violence, it's literally an embarrassment of riches. The film isn't being shown in 3-D, but this is a rare chance to have one of its beloved characters render behind-the-scenes memories. It's an even newer dimension in entertainment: the fourth.
