“CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES” Doc Moves to More Appropriate Date


The massive 400-minute FRIDAY THE 13TH retrospective doc, named after the essential book, has moved its release date from late August to a Friday in September. You might be able to guess which one. 

“Having spent well over a year in production on CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES, we wanted to take a little more time to give fans the definitive FRIDAY THE 13TH documentary they’ve been waiting for,” explains writer/director Daniel Farrands. “Not only were we able to line up a couple of last-minute interviews for our bonus disc and record a full filmmaker commentary track, it just made more sense to wait a couple of weeks and release CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES on the ‘unlucky day’ it celebrates: Friday the 13th.”

Produced by Thommy Hutson and written and directed by Farrands, CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES is narrated by Corey Feldman and features interviews with approximately 150 cast and crew members from all twelve Friday the 13th films and the syndicated television series, many of whom have never before appeared in on-camera interviews. Interview subjects include Kane Hodder, Robert Englund, Tom Savini, Danielle Panabaker, Sean S. Cunningham, Victor Miller, Amy Steel, Derek Mears, Betsy Palmer, Wes Craven, Robert Shaye, Alice Cooper and many more.
