Storyline

Inspired by the critically-acclaimed book, 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.

Much better than "his name is jason" but still not complete...
27 September 2013 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

I just saw the whole thing last night and here are my thoughts.

This is a must have F13 DOC for all the die hard fans.

2 DVD's and 2 blu rays in which we get the whole story of the franchise splited in 14 chapters running from 20 to 40 minutes each chapter.

As u can imagine we begin with part 1 (long night at camp blood) and we end with the remake film.

in more detail

DVD 1 and BLU RAY 1 have 7 chapters full of cast interviews and thoughts of the movies plus a lot of scenes from the movies some of them presented in their deleted // extended form.

1) LONG NIGHT AT CAMP BLOOD

2) PART 2

3) PART 3

4) FINAL CHAPTER

5) A NEW BEGINNING

6) JASON LIVES

7) F13 THE TV SERIES

DVD 2 and BLU RAY 2 have the rest chapters from part 7 to part 12 plus a bonus chapter containing more interviews from the cast members....

IN more detail

8) THE NEW BLOOD

9) JASON TAKES MANHATTAN 10) JASON GOES TO HELL 11) JASON X 12) FREDDY vs JASON 13) THE REMAKE 14) REFLECTIONS ON WATER

Also we have an intro narrative by corey feldman who also appears at the very end of the project closing in a great way that project.

As i said this effort is great but not complete.

Unfortunately the alice cooper's videos from part 6 are absent from one more official F13 DVD release and what is strange is that we also don't get the 12 F13 trailer park which they should have been included in this specific release (although they are separate available).

Apart from that this is a must have for all die hard f13 fans as we all get to see for the first time all 9 actors (and their stundmen) who played JASON all over the years plus we get to see most of the cast from the movies including scenes of those who could not make it to appear alive in this DOC.

good work guys and now it's time for a HELLRAISER and a CHILD'S PLAY complete doc after those we had of JASON, FREDDY and MYERS.
