For more than thirty years, FRIDAY THE 13TH has proven to be as unstoppable at the box office as its hockey-masked villain JASON VOORHEES, having spawned twelve feature films (and counting!), a syndicated television series and an extensive line of books, merchandise and collectibles. For its creators, FRIDAY THE 13TH has been anything but "bad luck," generating nearly $600 million in domestic box office receipts and turning an unstoppable, machete-wielding madman into a true pop-culture icon. 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.

New interviews I appreciated that haven't surfaced before were from leading ladies Dana Kimmell (Chris, F13 III), Jennifer Cooke (Megan, F13 VI) and Melanie Kinnaman (Pam, F13 V).
Other notable interviews include Frank Mancuso Jr. (Producer) Thom Mathews (Tommy, F13 VI), Carol Locatell (Ethel, F13 V), Ron Sloan (Junior, F13 V), Joan Freeman (Mrs. Jarvis, F13 Final Chapter), Tracie Savage (Debbie, F13 III), Jeannine Taylor (Marcie, F13) Susan Blu (Mrs. Shepard, F13 VII) and Sharlene Martin (Tamara, F13 VIII).
I believe older (although still recent) interview clips were pulled for Adrienne King (Alice, F13), Betsy Palmer (Mrs. Voorhees, F13), Amy Steel (Ginny, F13 II), Kimberly Beck (Trish, F13 Final Chapter), Lar Park Lincoln (Tina, F13 VII) and Jensen Daggett (Rennie, F13 VIII). So for fans of the ladies like myself, all leading women of the first 8 films are present.
Corey Feldman appropriately narrates. Steve Miner (director of F13 II & III) is absent.
There were also mentions of those who have past. Sad to hear about Susan Jennifer Sullivan (Melissa, F13 VII).
My only gripe is I wish the actors had spoken of what they are up to today after their Friday the 13th success. Are they still acting? Do they have different careers?
Also, I could have done without Jeff Katz (former New Line exec). He is very loud and obnoxious and doesn't really add anything special to the mix.
Very cool ending with the cast reciting lines from their roles. I got this for the first 8 films alone and skipped over Jason X, Freddy vs. Jason and the reboot which to me are the worst. Jason Goes to Hell is a mixed bag with fans, but I liked it.
