5.0 out of 5 stars Exellent Documentary On The Friday The 13th Franchise, 6 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crystal Lake Memories: Complete History of Friday [Blu-ray] [2013] [US Import] (Blu-ray)
This 4disc dvd/Blu Ray set covers a exhausting 7 hour Documentary that is based on the Book Crystal Lake memoirs that i have also reviewed.

I am a hardcore Friday the 13th movie fan( Barring Jason Goes To Hell & Jason X which are awful movies) & even i found out trivia & information on this documentary that i hadn't heard about before as this covers all the Friday the 13th movies including the 2009 remake.

This exhausting documentary covers the majority of behind the scenes, How the movies were made, Interviews with the majority of the cast, Crew & production to how much the film's made at the box office to the forced cuts by the MPA to get a R rating which effected Parts 5 & 7 mostly.

Surely now what fans really want is a complete Unrated boxset of all the Friday the 13th movies complete & Uncut so come on Paramount there is a cult following to this horror films that would buy them, Including this reviewer.

This is without doubt one of the best horror documentarys I've seen & I've seen quite a few being a hardcore movie fan.

As it's been confirmed a new Friday movie is due in 2015 this is a perfect reason to buy this documentary & update yourself on the legend of Crystal Lake's Hockey Masked killer Jason Voorhees.

So i highly recommend this release for horror fan's & cult followers of the Friday the 13th franchise as everything you need to know is in this dvd/Blu Ray box set.

I so want the series but after the orignial I just don't like them as a whole. I tried to watch the one where the black guy eats Jason's brain recently (see, don't even know which one that was) but got so bored. Perhaps it was the picture quality, perhaps the death scenes cut away to early, perhaps it was just boring. I have come to the conclusion that I would probably get Part 1 and Part 10 (I like it) and leave it at that. However, the documentaries I have seen on some of the releases have been impressive so I woulod betempted by this (especially after your promising review) Then maybe I can re-evaluate the franchise.

Your refering to Jason Hoes To Hell which I dislike as it ruins the franchise as dies Jason X although I appreciate you like it.

On the present dvd releases.

Parts 1, 3 & 4 are uncut there a little more gore in part 5, yet parts 2,6,7,8 same as previous versions.

There lot of gore scenes cut from parts 5,6,7 which you can view parts 6,7 on You Tube although pictures varys in quality.

Jason Goes To Hell is uncut as is Jason X,

Freddy vs Jason uncut as is the extended remake.

the book of this is outstanding & vastly researched.

This documentary is on par with Elm Streets Never Sleep Again Documentary yet this is vastly detailed & superior than the other Documentary His Name Was Jason.

It still the same versions as UK but its a decent set if you haven't got the movies.

I Emailed Paramount many times about releasing unrated cuts, I've yet to hear from them,

7 hours? lol Jesus, you'd need some serious caffine to watch this in one sitting :-) I can't understand why they haven't released an uncut version of all of the movies yet, they can't be any more horrific than Hostel, Saw, The hills have eyes, The Evil dead etc Most of Jasons kills are tongue in cheek anyway. Great review mate, gonna try and get a copy of this, the price put me off at first but for 7 hours worth, it's a bargain. :-)
