Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th Upon its original release as a collectible hardcover edition in October 2005, Crystal Lake Memories was instantly hailed as one of the most lavish, comprehensive and meticulously researched books ever created about a film series. The culmination of more than three years of tireless research, author Peter M. Bracke exhaustively conducted over 200 interviews with the cast and crew responsible for each of the 11 now-classic films in original Friday the 13th franchise, from filmmaker Sean S. Cunningham’s seminal 1980 shocker through the 2003 blockbuster match-up Freddy vs. Jason. Alongside a narrative as full of shocks and surprises as the films themselves, Crystal Lake Memories also featured nearly six-hundred rare and never-before-seen images that paint a graphically compelling picture of one of horror’s best loved titles
Now, six years after the original publication of Crystal Lake Memories, Jason is ready to slash his way across your Mac screen. Inspired by the extraordinary response to the print edition, Bracke has returned to the vaults to unearth additional material he was unable to incorporate into the original hardcover volume. He has also conducted fresh and updated interviews with key Friday the 13th alumni, including many who have agreed to break their silence for the first time. Bigger and bloodier than ever, Crystal Lake Memories is fully revised and expanded, and, says the author, the most complete and comprehensive version possible.
This Standard Text Edition is fully revised and expanded, including all newly-added cast and crew interviews, an updated introduction and appendices, and an original Foreword by Sean S. Cunningham.
(An Enhanced Edition is also available in the iBooks 2 format, expanding upon the text content by adding hundreds of images—many never seen before—including stills, storyboards, concept art and publicity and marketing materials, as well video interviews with cast and crew and audio excerpts of composer Harry Manfredini's first six Friday scores. Utilizing the cutting-edge technology of today’s best eBook readers, the Enhanced Edition of Crystal Lake Memories gives consumers the most comprehensive and interactive eBook experience available today.)
