Posted Tue Sep 3, 2013 at 10:00 AM PDT by

The extensive documentary about the classic horror film franchise will slice into Blu-ray in September.

In an early announcement to retailers, 1428 Films will unleash 'Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th' on Blu-ray on Friday, September 13.

For more than thirty years, FRIDAY THE 13TH has proven to be as unstoppable at the box office as its hockey-masked villain Jason Voorhees, having spawned twelve feature films (and counting!), a syndicated television series and an extensive line of books, merchandise and collectibles. For its creators, FRIDAY THE 13TH has been anything but "bad luck," generating nearly $600 million in domestic box office receipts and turning an unstoppable, machete-wielding madman into a true pop-culture icon. Inspired by High-Def Digest Founding Editor Peter Bracke's 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.

Specs haven't been revealed yet, but the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack will include a filmmaker's commentary and trailers.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.95.
