I had been dying to get my hands on this book since it was announced at the start of the year and its worth the weight
A big,heavy 320 page bible of all things "jason".From the gorgeous glossy hardback cover this book covers every single step of making the 11 films
Rare photos,Posters,Interviews and a big chapter for each of the films
If you like "friday the 13th" films or just a horror movie fan in general then this is an absolute must ! ! !

The book is made up of lengthy interviews with the cast, crew members, and the producers/directors. A lot of exclusive triva and history is included; the research is by far superior to any other book on the subject and that's without taking into account the 200+ photos of the set and crew. A true fan of Friday the 13th should own this.

This book has been on my wishlist for a couple of years so I was delighted when it finally appeared amongst my birthday presents. It oozes class before you even open the cover and deserves a place on the finest of coffee tables. It has been written with great care; the author's love for the films shines throughout and he has clearly gone to painstaking lengths to ensure no stone was left unturned. This truly is a complete history and will be something I return to time and time again.

NOTE: This is a review of the Kindle edition. The hardback version is a different enough book for this to be an important distinction.

This long, long book of interviews is pretty much the definitive history of the Friday the 13th movies. It feels like everyone was interviewed (producers, writers, lead and supporting actors, the stuntmen who played Jason, special effects and make-up people, cinematographers, 3D process specialists etc). If anyone has been missed then it's no great shame. Probably most importantly all the directors have been interviewed - they arguably have the best overview of each film.

It's not a love-in. People are frank in their opinions on the movies, and of the sometimes difficult productions. There is real dirt here.

I really enjoyed it as a reading experience, and I learned probably everything I ever wanted to know and more about these movies. It's a very complete and satisfying book. The only complaint I can level at the book is that the 2009 remake is not covered.

The Kindle edition is apparently much longer in text than the hardback version. There isn't a single picture in it. This didn't bother me. I'll happily take more interviews over photographs. Though it is a very minor pity that the occasional pertinent image didn't make it into the digital edition. Also a lot of the actors/characters in these films are anonymous and forgettable so it's sometimes hard to keep track of who the actors are without pictures.

The book does not appear to have been proof read. There are many, many typos. The content is so good that I didn't care. It doesn't make it hard to read or anything. Just be aware that there are a lot of silly errors throughout the whole book.

This book is quite incredible. A history of the Friday the 13th films, done in such painstakingly detail. Here you have a mammoth book crammed with literally hundreds of colour pictures and interviews from all the cast members of 11 Friday the 13th movies.

It's the type of book that fans will read in a day and yet keep going back for more. If only every movie type book was of this quality.

There are many pictures that you won't have seen before, and the interviews build up a complete history of Friday the 13th. It helps greatly that the author is not a journalist but a fan of the franchise. Expertly put together, unless you hate the movies, how could you ever give this item less than five stars?

If you're a fan, you must get this book.

Yes, awesome book on the Friday The 13th films from the original film to Freddy vs Jason.
An Alladin's cave of interviews and rare pictures. Just so much to read. Covers all aspects of the filming including alternate scenes.

Fantastic !
