Enjoyable snack for hungry FRIDAY THE 13TH fans!
13 June 2003 | by (NJ, USA) – See all my reviews

It was nice to see some of the people involved with the making of this classic slasher film finally come out of hiding to speak about it. However, this documentary left me with the impression that there was no motivation to make this film other than to make a quick buck. Sean S. Cunningham, the producer and director, seemed to want to make family films but was pigeon-holed into making horror films after "Last House On The Left". Victor Miller, who wrote the script, basically says that he copied all of the elements from "Halloween" and just changed the scenery. Betsy Palmer, who played Mrs. Voorhees, was very funny and this is the first time I've ever heard her speak about "Friday the 13th" - but again, her motivation for starring in this film was only to pay for the car she had just bought (and apparently used to drive her to and from the set). And all seem to agree that, at the time, the idea of Jason coming back to be the killer was a stupid and outlandish one. Obviously, the rest of the world disagreed.

It amazes me how with all of this indifference, such a scary and enjoyable film and such a successful and never-ending series would be the turnout. It seems to amaze the producer, director, screenwriter and stars as well! Adrienne King, the survivor of "Friday the 13th" (but not "Friday the 13th Part 2"), is also on board for this documentary. She is very cute and funny, and looks better now than she did in the movie. She also reveals why she decided to quit acting after these films with a behind-the-scenes tidbit I've never heard before this. All in all, a thoroughly enjoyable snack for "Friday the 13th" fans who have been starving for some type of supplemental material other than Paramount's disgraceful bare bones DVDs. Unfortunately, this documentary is included only on the Warner Brothers uncut DVD release of "Friday the 13th" which is distributed in every country except the US.
