An extra on the "Jason X" DVD, This is just an average documentary about the "Friday the 13th" franchise. It doesn't have any new nuggets of info even for the most casual viewer. the 30 minutes only made me long for the old Paramount Friday movies, as the Ne Line ones pretty much suck This gets plus points for having Joe Bob Briggs in it, but those points are evened out by having Drew McWeenie AKA: Moriarty (I dislike Ain't It Cool-related people). It's OK, but feels a little like a fluff piece then anything else. Feel free to skip it, you won't miss anything. Ironically it still is better then any of the Friday films that New Line has put out.

My Grade: C-
