From The Press Release:

1428 Films, Panic Productions and Hutson Ranch Media have announced that the release date for Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th has been moved to Friday, September 13th, 2013. The documentary was originally slated for release on August 27th.

FROM THE PEOPLE WHO BROUGHT YOU
NEVER SLEEP AGAIN: THE ELM STREET LEGACY

“Because of the scope of the show and in order to craft the best, most interesting and entertaining look at the films and TV series, it became necessary to give the post-production process a bit more time,” says producer Thommy Hutson. “Ultimately, though, we are thrilled with the show and can’t wait for fans to get back to camp – and we think Mrs. Voorhees and Jason would be happy with the new date!”

“Having spent well over a year in production on Crystal Lake Memories, we wanted to take a little more time to give fans the definitive Friday the 13th documentary they’ve been waiting for,” explains writer/director Daniel Farrands. “Not only were we able to line up a couple of last-minute interviews for our bonus disc and record a full filmmaker commentary track, it just made more sense to wait a couple of weeks and release Crystal Lake Memories on the ‘unlucky day’ it celebrates: Friday the 13th.”

The three-disc Blu-ray/DVD combo pack of the documentary, which runs a staggering 400 minutes, can currently be pre-ordered exclusively via the film’s official website. An exclusive bonus disc containing approximately 4 hours of extended interview material will be included with orders placed on the website. After the soft release on September 13th, the film will be available to the general public on October 8th.

Corey Feldman (star of Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter) narrates Crystal Lake Memories, which features interviews with approximately 150 cast and crew members from all twelve Friday the 13th films and the syndicated television series, many of whom have never before appeared in on-camera interviews. Interview subjects include Kane Hodder, Robert Englund, Tom Savini, Danielle Panabaker, Sean S. Cunningham, Derek Mears, Betsy Palmer, Wes Craven, Robert Shaye, Alice Cooper and many more.

Crystal Lake Memories promises to be the definitive retrospective on the unstoppable Friday the 13th franchise. The film is written and directed by Farrands and produced by Hutson, who previously teamed up for the award-winning Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy.

FIRST LOOK AT VICTOR CROWLEY IN SDCC HATCHET 3 POSTER

Source: Bloody Disgusting

This Saturday, July 14th, Dark Sky Films and ArieScope Pictures will be distributing limited edition teaser posters for their upcoming horror sequel HATCHET 3 exclusively at San Diego Comic-Con. On-hand at SDCC to sign the posters will be writer/producer Adam Green, director BJ McDonnell, and cast members Kane Hodder, Zach Galligan, Caroline Williams, and Rileah Vanderbilt.

The teaser poster, featuring Kane Hodder as slasher icon Victor Crowley, offers fans their first look at producer Adam Green’s hotly-anticipated film.

The official HATCHET 3 signing will be held on Saturday, July 14th on the San Diego Comic-Con floor at area/table AA21 from 02:30 PM – 04:30 PM. Each fan who comes to the signing will receive a free limited edition poster, which will only be available at Comic-Con 2012. Fans can also catch Victor Crowley walking the convention floor throughout the day, and those who snap a picture of themselves with Crowley and tweet it (tagging @darkskyfilms), will be entered to win a Hatchet Army t-shirt and limited edition poster.

HATCHET 3 is a co-production of MPI/Dark Sky Films and Green’s Los Angeles-based ArieScope Pictures. The film marks cinematographer McDonnell’s directorial debut after having handled A and B camera operations on such features as Rob Zombie’s HALLOWEEN remake, Timur Bekmambetov’s ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER and Adam Green’s first two Hatchet films.

SYNOPSIS:

The story finds Danielle Harris hunting down the true secret to ending the voodoo curse that has left Crowley’s ghost terrorizing Honey Island Swamp for decades. Mears will play a brooding, pompous SWAT team leader who is sent in to contain the carnage strewn about the haunted swamp. Williams will play a fast-talking journalist who fancies herself an expert on the legend of supernatural stalker Crowley.

BEHIND THE SCENES DANIELLE HARRIS PHOTOS FROM HATCHET 3

Over on her Official Blog, Danielle Harris (reprising her role as Marybeth in HATCHET 3, directed by BJ McDonnell) posted a few bloody behind the scenes photos, along with video from some Louisiana Morning show called Hollywood South. The film stars a who’s who of horror with Danielle Harris, Kane Hodder, Derek Mears (“Friday the 13th”), Caroline Williams (“The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2?), Sean Whalen (“The People Under the Stairs”), Diane Goldner (“The Collector”), Jason Trost (The FP), Zach Galligan (Gremlins) and Cody Blue Snider.

SYNOPSIS:

A search and recovery team heads into the haunted swamp to pick up the pieces as Marybeth learns the secret to ending the voodoo curse that has left Victor Crowley haunting and terrorizing Honey Island Swamp for decades.

Check for more bloody, behind the scenes, Danielle Harris goodness after the break!

FIRST BEHIND THE SCENES GORE PHOTO FROM ‘HATCHET 3′ HITS THE WEB

BJ McDonnell has released the first gory behind the scenes photo from the set of HATCHET 3 on his facebook page. It’s no real shock to regular readers that, personally, I’m not the biggest fan of the HATCHET series thus far. The first film was…ok, but nothing special. The practical special effects were the star of that film. HATCHET 2, however, was godawful, with terrible story, acting, direction, special effects, and Danielle Harris’s weird, distracting eyebrow thing going on. I have low hopes for HATCHET 3, but who knows, I could be pleasantly surprised.

That being said, I realize a lot of you out there in gore land are big fans of the series, so I’ll continue to pass along news on the most recent film in the series as it develops. For now, feast your eyes on a bit of gutsy grue above.

New Pics From Friday The 13th Remake

I’m sure that all of you out there in HorrorLand have already seen the (ONE) pic of the new Jason Voorhees from the Friday remake.  Well, over at Shock Till You Drop, they had posted a few new ones, but the studio had them take the pics down.  Well, here at Backwoods Horror, we (by that, I mean, ‘I’) know good and damn well that studios don’t pay any attention to us.  So…with the help of Youtube, I give you the newest Friday Remake photos.

So what do I think about ’em?  Not much.  The new Jason looks kind of weird.  I can’t really explain it, but he doesn’t really capture that menacing feeling so perfectly created by Kane Hodder’s Jason Voorhees.  I know, I know, “it’s just a guy in a hockey mask.”  Well, fuck you buddy, because to take that concept of “a guy in a mask” and turn that character into a menacing juggernaut of fear, well, that takes a special kind of talent.  I just don’t think the new guy, Derek Mears, is going to pull it off.  Just another forgettable remake.

UPDATE: Below is a pic of the hood Jason’s gonna be wearing in the new Friday Remake.  Shit, they’re gonna have the ‘Tater Sack Jason’ the Deadpit Boys made so famous.  This is a toy mockup it’d seem.  I can only guess they’re basing it off of the movie.  Check it out:
