Horror Movie Documentary

Continuing the Halloween theme I managed to track down the pretty much sought after Crystal Lake Memories : The Complete History of Friday the 13th...the documentary was 6 hrs plus long! Goodness! ...took me 4 days to finish it up but it was all worth it.

I consider Friday the 13th (along with Halloween and Scream) my top horror franchise regardless of the fact that the flicks are panned by the critics..Baahambug! So far there's 12 ..yes 12! Friday the 13th flick. Here's a a quick rundown of how I rate my Friday the 13th flicks from Awesome to Poo

1. Friday the 13th : The Final Chapter
2. Friday the 13th (1980)
3. Friday the 13th : Jason Lives!
4. Freddy VS Jason
5. Jason X (yes haters!..I love Jason X)
6. Friday the 13th (2009)
7. Friday the 13th 2
8. Friday the 13th 3D
9. Jason Goes to Hell
10. Friday the 13th : New Blood
11. Friday the 13th : A New Beginning
12. Friday the 13th : Jason Takes Manhattan

Each chapter? is feature like 40 min - 1 hr in the documentary. Each chapter gave insights or the behind the story of the makings of each Friday flick..some I already knew about but most I have no idea bout like the directors and stuntman cause honestly I mostly focus on the kills and actors in this flick.

Each Friday flick they call up some of the actors (that are still alive..and not a A grade actors..yes Kevin Bacon I'm talking bout you!) to tell their story..what surprises me the most was that Adrienne King (the original final girl) was supposed to comeback instead of being killed off in the second Friday. Also was sad to know that some of the people worked/acted in the Friday movie have moved on..was specially sad to hear Melissa (arguably the prettiest bitch in the Friday franchise) have passed on due to cancer..RIP.

Oh forgot to mention that even Friday the 13th the series was featured in this documentary as well. This is the only Friday stuff that I have not seen and I guess I gotta pick it up someday...someday. Now I was also pleased that they showed some of the deleted scene (poor quality though) that was never revealed, unfortunately according to the director, we never see the light of a director's cut of The New Blood which supposedly to have lots of great on screen kills ( Paramount burned the footage..according to em lah )

Near the end the actors lamented that it'll be cool to make a 13th Friday the 13th flick where they bring back all the surviving final girls and guys to duke it out with Jason...I would be so down with that idea..would love to see my fav Friday final gal Trish Jarvis from Final Chapter go against Jason again..don't know if that'll happen though cause I read few months back they're gonna do a Friday the 13th 2 (remake) ..but whatever as long as they keep making these Friday movies...I'LL BE THERE

Trish and Tommy Jarvis (played by Corey Feldman!)

Second documentary is My Amityville Horror (2012)

True story or not, that house does look scary
Amityville Horror is a horror flick based on the "true story" of the Lutz family which moved in a haunted house. The flick spawns 11 sequels (wow) and a remake...I've only seen 4 out of those 12..but really I'm not interested to watch of the sequels even revolve around a haunted dollhouse ..which unfortunately was one of the 4 I watched but fortunately I did not remember much about.

The original one however scared the crap out of me when I saw it around 7 I guess, that demon pig and red eyes image were imbedded in my brain forever. Okay so back to the documentary, Daniel Lutz recounts back the horror that happen in the house which to this day he believes did happen. You see, a lot of people were skeptic bout the family's experience ..people believe that the Lutz were just in it for the money.

According to Daniel though it was all real, he kept to himself for the past 30+ years but now he is ready to tell his side of the story, not only bout the haunting but also bout his step dad George Lutz which he obviously hate. Going through the documentary, I don't know what to think...I can see that the dude truly believes it did happen..but what shocked me is the appearance of Lorraine Warren ...

Familiar?...well she's the Parapsychologist in which The Conjuring 2013 was based on. Her husband and herself were one of the investigators. According to them the house was truly haunted...brrr. I guess the Warrens were legit paranormal investigators...overall this documentary was just okay cause he did not really talk much bout the house and the horror abound it but more on the dad...which yeeeeeeeeesh
