This is the only documentary on the DVD of the original Friday the 13th from 1980. It's a making of said film, and it consists of interviews with the cast and crew(unfortunately not everyone, Savini and Bacon are mysteriously absent, and the former greatly missed), clips of the film(some of them ironically used, to OK effect... note that this featurette spoils the flick) and behind the scenes photos. They get into the script, the history of putting it together, the score(with the infamous echo), the star's stalker(there's an incentive to never get into show-business), etc. And they reveal the reason it looks so awkward in the movie when they fight... those fire pokers and such are *real*! They detail and look into the reaction from both viewers and critics(and in the latter... camp(I know, it's terrible, I had to and you know it), also parents and "educators"). This is 21 minutes sans credits(one extra with them), and it's an informative little package... I didn't love the picture itself, and still found this to be interesting. I recommend this to any fan of the franchise. 6/10
