Crystal Lake Memories Blu-ray Unboxing


Posted April 7, 2022 by


The Friday the 13th series is one of the most loaded horror franchises of all time, comprising of a staggering 12 films, a TV series, novels, comic books, video games, and tie-in merchandising. It’s no surprise that this incredible all-encompassing documentary on the series’ complete history clocks in at almost seven hours long! 

Inspired by the critically acclaimed book of the same name and built on an absolute goldmine of archive material, this passionate doc is catnip for horror fans as it delves deeply into every aspect of the Jason Vorhees legacy over a 30 year period. Although released back in 2013, the film is making its UK Blu-ray debut thanks to 101 Films and is an essential part of any home horror collection.


Inspired by the critically acclaimed book, CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES: THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF FRIDAY THE 13th takes viewers behind the mask on an epic journey into the making of the landmark horror franchise — from its humble beginnings in 1980 at a New Jersey summer camp to the blockbuster release of its 2009 “reboot.”

Combining hundreds of rare and never-before-seen photographs, film clips, outtakes, archival documents, conceptual art and behind-the-scenes footage, and featuring interviews with more than 150 cast and crew members spanning all twelve films and the television series, CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES is the ultimate tribute to one of horror’s most iconic and enduring franchises.
