Not normally a fan of documentaries, but a huge fan of the Friday series. I'm so glad I gave this a shot. I loved every second of it. I never realized the extreme temperatures and conditions endured to make these movies. It's also neat to hear how much they enjoyed their time on set. The Kane Hodder To Hell and Back documentary is next. He seemed so genuinely upset that he wasn't in Freddy vs Jason, and I can't blame him at all. I'm also glad crazy Ethel made an appearance. I couldn't stand her in part V, but she cracked me up on here. I also think it was a nice touch, everyone sharing their favorite lines during the closing credits.
All six hours are absolutely worth the watch! Really captures the love and fun at the heart of the series, while still acknowledging its issues. Really wonderful!
This is the best "making of" movie documentaries ever. It captures how much fun the whole series was to make, the passion of the people involved and heightens my appreciation of the F13 series.
The absolute best documentary on the Friday series to date, and probably the best there ever will be. There’s a few people and things missing here and there, but overall this is about as comprehensive as it gets. Absolute must-watch for any fans of the series. This has become a yearly watch for me, just as much as the Friday movies themselves.
His Name was Jason was good, butt this one was excellent. Very well put together with behind the scenes footage and cast interviews and updates of every film in the franchise. I watch it in parts due to its 6 hrs. 40 mins. running time. Worth the time.
