First it was a must-own book for any fan of the series, and now it’s served as a basis for a whopping 420 minute documentary that aims to be the definitive retrospective on all things FRIDAY THE 13TH-related.
Narrated by Corey Feldman, CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES features interviews with approximately 150 cast and crew members from all twelve Friday the 13th films and the syndicated television series, many of whom have never before appeared in on-camera interviews. Interview subjects include Kane Hodder, Robert Englund, Tom Savini, Danielle Panabaker, Sean S. Cunningham, Victor Miller, Amy Steel, Derek Mears, Betsy Palmer, Wes Craven, Robert Shaye, Alice Cooper and many more. A full list of the cast can be found here.
The press release continues:
CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES is written and directed by Daniel Farrands and produced by Thommy Hutson, who previously teamed up for the award-winning NEVER SLEEP AGAIN: THE ELM STREET LEGACY. “As lifelong fans, we couldn’t let 2013 pass us by without giving Jason his due,” explains Farrands. “I hope that CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES will serve as a befitting tribute to one of this generation’s most iconic bogeymen.”
“We’re thrilled that we are able to bring all the incredible stories from the cast and crew to life, showcasing why the FRIDAY THE 13TH franchise is still going strong decades later,” adds Hutson. “It’s a testament to the blood, sweat and tears that went into making summer camp, and eventually a hockey mask, both terrifying and fun.”
