Disqus for Friday The 13th: The Film Franchise




EXCLUSIVE: Friday The 13th Documentary Release Info And Website Launch!

It was first announced on April 27th, 2012 that production companies Panic Productions and Hutson Ranch Media were diving into creating the definitive look at the Friday The 13th film franchise. The companies have grown in their experience in documentary film making since the first Friday The 13th documentary, His Name Was Jason, was produced back in 2009 and hot off their critical success of the Nightmare On Elm Street doc, Never Sleep Again, they felt it was time to do Jason Voorhees and his fans proud by creating the definitive look at the Friday The 13th Film Franchise.


Fans have been extremely patient over the past year since the new documentary was announced, reading updates on the production and seeing some excellent images of cast and crew from the entire franchise. A few questions have gone unanswered, however, in that time such as when the documentary is going to be released for sale, how long is the run time going to be, and what home video formats will the show be released on? Well, all of those questions get answered right now!

The brand new website for Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History Of Friday The 13th has been launched which shows the release date for the show as September 13, 2013 and it also states that the pre-sale for the documentary will begin on July 8, 2013! But that's not all, we have even more information for the fans as we can give you the exclusive expanded details about the documentary.

With a running time of approximately seven hours, Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th explores each film -- from the seminal 1980 slasher hit to the 2009 reboot, including the hit syndicated television series -- in chronological order, and promises to be the definitive retrospective on one of the most enduring horror franchises in motion picture history.

Writer/director Daniel Farrands says, "I'm very proud that my passion (and obsession) with all things Friday the 13th, which started when I was 12 years old, has finally come full circle.  What started out as a pipe dream ten years ago when I first teamed up with Peter Bracke on his incredible book, has taken on a whole new life with our companion documentary.  I hope fans will be as thrilled as we are with this epic look back on the Friday the 13th series."

With such a massive run time, Crystal Lake Memories will be released on Region Free Blu-Ray to offer the entire documentary on fewer discs which will make for a more enjoyable viewing experience.

[ UPDATE: It is now announced that the documentary will be offered in a Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack! ]

Thommy Hutson shares his sentiments about his journey with the project.

“I am thrilled that the show has come together so beautifully,” says producer Thommy Hutson. “After a year of production, so many amazing, new interviews, and locating incredible materials, Crystal Lake Memories will absolutely be the embodiment of ‘definitive’ when it comes to telling the story of the Friday franchise, not to mention bringing Peter Bracke’s amazing book to life. We couldn’t be more excited to unleash this incredible history of Camp Crystal Lake, Jason, and all that has gone with them over the last 30 plus years.”

In the mean time, make sure to follow the documentary over these social network sites and prepare to embrace your Bad Luck Day this August!
