CRYSTAL-LAKE-MEMORIES_BANNER

 

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).

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.

NEW STILL FROM SCREAM 4

Posted on 15th October 2010 by aaron in News - Tags: , , , , , , ,

The cool ghouls over at Shock Till You Drop have posted a new photo from the upcoming sequel SCREAM 4.  Other than the first one, I haven’t been a huge fan of the series, but I’ll be giving the 4th installment a shot.  This from STYD:

A new image from Scream 4 has arrived in anticipation of Spike’s Scream Awards this weekend. The annual ceremony will shoot on Saturday in Los Angeles and air at a later date. A special preview of the sequel will air during the awards show. As for the pic you see – you’ve got David Arquette as Sheriff Dewey Riley, Neve Campbell’s Sidney Prescott and Courteney Cox’s Gale Weathers. The film is expected to hit theaters on April 15. When Spike airs that footage, we’ll bring it to you as soon as it’s available.

‘NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET’ REMAKE TRAILER

An official trailer for the upcoming NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET remake has hit the web.  You can check it out below (thanks to SHOCK TILL YOU DROP).  Producer Brad Fuller has already made a statement to respond to the already overwhelming fan input on the Trailer and the new Freddy Krueger look and voice:

“…We are continuing to refine Freddy’s look. Many people commented about the CGI on his face – and I don’t want to give everything away but I will say this – Freddy’s face is 98% practical make-up. Moreover, as you now know we went hardcore on what a burn victim really looks like.”

Jackie spent so much time on the voice, researching what people who’ve had their vocal cords burned sound like. He is still working on it and I suspect that we will be refining it, until the last moment.”

ROBERT ENGLUND: AUTHOR, MEMOIRIST, ‘MAN OF YOUR DREAMS’

According to Shock Till You Drop, Robert Englund has a Memoir coming out from Pocket Books this October entitled: HOLLYWOOD MONSTER: A WALK DOWN ELM STREET WITH THE MAN OF YOUR DREAMS.

Quite a hefty title, and, of course, bibliophile that I am, I’ll be sure to let you boils ‘n ghouls out there know if it’s one for your horrific bookshelves.

NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET – NEW POSTER & PIC

A poster and pic have surfaced for the new Nightmare on Elm Street remake at SDCC.  Of course, Freddy’s face is still obscured for the most part, but from what we here at Backwoods Horror can tell, so far, so good.  Though Englund isn’t the world’s biggest guy, Freddy’s shoes are some big ‘uns to fill.  Let’s hope ‘ol Jackie Earle Haley’s up to it!  Check it out:
