In case you missed the original release of the most comprehensive documentary on the entire Friday The 13th series that has been, or ever will be, released, you’ll get another chance coming this September.
RLJ Entertainment will be releasing CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES: THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF FRIDAY THE 13TH on DVD and Blu-ray release on Sept. 8, 2015 and on Digital on Oct. 6, 2015. The film stars Sean S. Cunningham (Friday the 13th), Corey Feldman (Stand by Me), Wes Craven (A Nightmare on Elm Street), Robert Englund (Freddy vs. Jason), Alice Cooper (Wayne’s World), Frank Mancuso Jr. (Ronin), Adrienne King (Friday the 13th), Amy Steel (“All My Children”), Ari Lehman (Friday the 13th), Betsy Palmer (I’ve Got a Secret), Erin Gray (“Silver Spoons”), Kane Hodder (Se7en), Lar Park Lincoln (Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood), Robbi Morgan (Friday the 13th), and Stu Charno (Friday the 13th Part 2) and directed by Daniel Farrands.
CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES: THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF FRIDAY THE 13TH takes viewers behind the mask on an epic journey into the making of the landmark horror franchise-from its humble beginnings in 1980 at a New Jersey summer camp to the blockbuster release of its 2009 “reboot.” Combining hundreds of rare and never-before-seen photographs, film clips, outtakes, archival documents, conceptual art and behind-the-scenes footage, and featuring interviews with more than 150 cast and crew members spanning all twelve films and the television series, CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES is the ultimate tribute to one of horror’s most iconic and enduring franchises.
Keep watching this space for a review folks. (I was supposed to get a review screener last year, but it never arrived. With any luck, I’ll get the blu edition of the film and will be able to comment not only on the documentary itself, but the supplementary contents as well).
