I heard of cyrstal lake memories. is that a good one. or is there another?? thanks....
Making Friday The 13th: The Legend of Camp Blood by David Grove was a good, informative read for me. It was also much cheaper than Crystal Lake Memories, however I believe that CLM is considered the definitive tome on all things Voorhees.
CLM is the book you want. Grove's book is ok, but I seem to recall lots of stuff an editor should have caught that coasted on through. Likely in order to beat CLM to the market.
I've read both and Crystal Lake Memories is far more informative and entertaining.
does lake memories have cool rare photos too? think i will order this.... thanks....
I'm another impressed with CLM. Not only is it interesting for fans of the series but for movie fans in general. Amazing some of the films were finished let alone any good.
i've only read Crystal Lake Memories, but its an astounding book, both in terms of information, and presentation. its a thing of beauty, and one of my favorite horror-related items. i think i spent $40 on it a few years ago? not sure. whatever it was, it was well worth it.
It's loaded with photos, it's essentially a huge F13 coffee table book.
got lake memories. nice pictures. some i never seen before.. wish they gave more insight as to what months and years the films were shot. but i didnt read it all either. I like the shot of ralph getting his throat torn, never seen that shot in color...Over all it's a very big book and nicley done... I wonder how much diffrent the other book is. the making of friday the 13th? does it have better pictures??
If it is like his other book, Jamie Lee Curtis: Scream Queen, then it is entirely text with a small section of pictures in the middle.
If you buy Making of...for pictures you'll be very disappointed. Mostly very entertaining anecdotes from people connected to the films in the franchise, most pictures are small, unremarkable or black & white.
For anyone with an iPad Crystal Lake Memories has been released on iBooks.
