Now this is what I'm talking about, my man Voorhees getting a little documentary love!
You guys and gals ever get a chance to see the NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET doc NEVER SLEEP AGAIN? Well, the same crew is now aiming they're retrospective shine on none other than Camp Crystal Lake and the Friday the 13th series. In fact, they've already began filming CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES: THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF FRIDAY THE 13TH in New York, Connecticut and Vancouver.
Based on Peter M. Bracke’s bestseller:
Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of ‘Friday the 13th’ promises to give horror fans a unique insider’s look into the iconic horror series, featuring over 100 interviews with cast and crew spanning all twelve films and the television series, many of whom have never before publicly discussed their involvement in the long-running franchise. The documentary is written and directed by Daniel Farrands and produced by Thommy Hutson, who previously combined forces on the most acclaimed horror franchise documentary ever made, 2010’s Never Sleep Again: The Elm Street Legacy, an epic four-hour journey that chronicled the making of director Wes Craven’s seminal 1984 shocker and its seven sequels. Independently produced, financed and released by Farrands and Hutson, Never Sleep Again won The Academy of Science Fiction and Horror’s prestigious Saturn Award in 2010 for “Best DVD Release” as well as two Home Media Magazine Reaper Awards for “Best Direct-to-Video Release” and “Best of Show.”
About the project, NEVER SLEEP AGAIN producer Thommy Hutson had this to say:
“After exploring the success and making of nightmares, ghost-faced killers and wise-cracking zombies, the time felt right to document the rise of one of the most well-known, feared and loved villains of our generation. I am thrilled to be part of a project that will undoubtedly be the definitive story of not just Jason Voorhees, but the film franchise that created him. It’s a campfire tale long overdue.”
Amen to that! Voorhees is my favorite of the slasher big 3, so I'll be watching this bastard every step of the way.
