Good news, Friday fans! The official Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th website has launched, and we have all the details you need to get primed and ready for the ultimate Friday the 13th documentary! Check it out!
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 retrospective on one of the most enduring horror franchises in motion picture history.
Writer/director Daniel Farrands says, “I’m very proud that my passion (and obsession) with all things Friday the 13th, which started when I was 12 years old, has finally come full circle. What started out as a pipe dream ten years ago when I first teamed up with Peter Bracke on his incredible book has taken on a whole new life with our companion documentary. I hope fans will be as thrilled as we are with this epic look back on the Friday the 13th series.
Thommy Hutson shares his sentiments about his journey with the project.
“I am thrilled that the show has come together so beautifully,” says producer Thommy Hutson. “After a year of production, so many amazing, new interviews, and locating incredible materials, Crystal Lake Memories will absolutely be the embodiment of ‘definitive’ when it comes to telling the story of the Friday franchise, not to mention bringing Peter Bracke’s amazing book to life. We couldn’t be more excited to unleash this incredible history of Camp Crystal Lake, Jason, and all that has gone with them over the last 30 plus years.”
There’s just one little hitch. This monster-sized documentary will arrive on a region-free BLU-RAY ONLY! Sorry, DVD-philes. It’s time to upgrade if you want the goodies. Plus, being that Blu-ray discs hold way more memory than your standard DVD, you won’t have to be switching discs every couple of hours. That being said, pre-sale for the documentary will begin on July 8, 2013, for a August 27th release.
