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.

Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th Part 2

A Thoroughly Solid Conclusion

Despite the critical comments on the product page for Part 1 of this documentary, I thought the 2nd half was about on par with the first and overall I was very impressed by the efforts the makers and interview participants put into really looking at the series as a whole, not simply the original film and the early years when the series was most successful. Granted Part 2 mainly covers the years when the film series was in decline, covering the last Paramount films, New Line years and going up to the recent reboot produced by Michael Bay, but for a fan such as myself I thought the interviews were top notch, covered lots of details omitted by other documentaries, and I appreciated that everyone generally seemed candid in sharing their honest thoughts. For casual horror fans, something comparatively short, like His Name Was Jason, might cover the key history and be good enough, but Crystal Lake Memories really dug into the history of Friday the 13th and the Jason character in a much more comprehensive way than I ever expected and in a way that was for me also very much entertaining.
