FROM THE PEOPLE WHO BROUGHT YOU NEVER SLEEP AGAIN: THE ELM STREET LEGACY Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th Definitive documentary to be released Friday, September 13th Pre-orders available now on CrystalLakeMemories.net
For those of you, like me, who have been voraciously chasing down every bit of information available on the upcoming definitive documentary on the Friday The 13th series, CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES: THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF FRIDAY THE 13th, a sales sheet has now hit the web. The sheet states, definitively, that the documentary is going to be a 4 disc set (2 blu-rays and 2 dvds), includes a bit more information about the doc itself, and includes a few images from the film.
As reported a few weeks ago, CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES: THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF FRIDAY THE 13th (now available for pre-order on the official site, with the official release coming Friday, September 13th) will be coming our way soon from 1428 Films, the same folk who brought us the outstandingly in-depth NEVER SLEEP AGAIN: THE ELM STREET LEGACY. With a running time of approximately seven hours, Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th explores each film — from the seminal 1980 slasher hit to the 2009 reboot, including the hit syndicated television series — in chronological order, and promises to be the definitive documentary on one of the most enduring horror franchises in motion picture history.
Famous character actor R.G. Armstrong has died. Born April 7th, 1917 in Pleasant Grove, Alabama, Mr. Armstrong was known to readers of this site for his work in such horror genre titles as CHILDREN OF THE CORN, PREDATOR, THE BEAST WITHIN (a personal favorite), EVIL SPEAK, THE WAKING aka KEEPER OF SOULS, DEVIL DOG: THE HOUND OF HELL, THE CAR, RACE WITH THE DEVIL, & a continuing role on FRIDAY THE 13th: THE SERIES. He was also known for having a role in the Spaghetti Western MY NAME IS NOBODY, and such southern fried, Dirty South (click the link to White Lightning for a definition of that term) favorites as WHITE LIGHTNING (another personal favorite…I LOVE that movie), WHITE LINE FEVER (one of the better trucker sub-genre movies out there), & DIXIE DYNAMITE. He also had a few roles on one of my favorite television shows growing up, THE DUKES OF HAZZARD.
He was 95 years old. Whether good or evil, he always played an interesting character, and he will be missed.
