Friday the 13th Part III Richard Brooker Steve Miner

Director Kevin R. Phipps' FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 3: THE MEMORIAM DOCUMENTARY made its world premiere in front of a lucky audience at Laemmle's Ahrya Fine Arts Theatre in Los Angeles this past October, and now we know when the rest of the FRIDAY THE 13TH franchise's fans will have a chance to see it: This weekend!

The documentary, which focuses on the making of FRIDAY THE 13TH PART III, its since-destroyed filming location, and the late Richard Brooker, who played iconic slasher Jason Voorhees in the film, will be released for free online this Saturday, January 13th.

Written by Phipps and executive producer Sean Richards, the documentary has the following description: 

In April 2013, the Friday the 13th family suddenly lost Mr. Richard Brooker. Portraying Jason in Friday the 13th part 3, he was the first individual to don the now iconic hockey mask. Richard was a terrific human being & a friend to all. 

In addition, the Higgins Haven cabin used in the film burned down by some careless vagrants in 2006. These two events sparked Sean into action to do something with the one of a kind on location video footage he shot from 2003 & 2005. It was the last footage and photography shot before the set's demise in 2006.

The project has grown leaps and bounds over the past year & continues to bring on board various Friday the 13th alumni that starred in part 3 as well friends of Richard's that are still working in the film industry today. Their interviews are pivotal in giving the backstory of the production of part 3 as well as insight into the man Richard Brooker was.

The documentary boasts new interviews, new reenactments, never before seen photos, and never before seen footage, and features interviews with the likes of Caroline Williams, Paul Kratka, Larry Zerner, Eileen Dietz, Tracie Savage, David Katims, Dick Wieand, Eric Branden, Michael G. Coleman, Jedediah Jones, Craig W. Chenery, Sean Richards, and Daniel Blunck.

As of the 13th, if you want to watch FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 3: THE MEMORIAM DOCUMENTARY all you'll have to do is go to the F13network YouTube channel.
