    • The Men Behind the Mask: extended interviews with all of the men who played Jason Voorhees


    His Name Was Jason: 30 Years of Friday the 13th
    In this look back at one of the most resilient slashers in horror film history, host Tom Savini reflects on thirty years of bloody carnage and gory mayhem as waged by Jason Vorhees, the hockey-masked mama's boy who always gets his victim, no matter how fast they run. Filled with classic clips from every Friday the 13th film, featuring rare behind-the-scenes footage, and offering interviews with over eighty filmmakers, fans, stuntmen, special effects artists, actors, and journalists, this documentary offers the definitive look at the legacy of a killer who never needs to utter a word, because his trusty machete does all the talking. Featured interviewees include, Kane Hodder, Harry Manfredini, Sean Cunningham, Betsy Palmer, Felissa Rose, Lar Park-Lincoln, Greg Nicotero, Adrienne King, Seth Green, and Fangoria editor-in-chief Tony Timpone. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Tom Savini and Jason, two of a kind


      Friday The 13th redefined horror in 1980. Now 30 years later, the impact has not gone unnoticed. The cast of many of the movies returns to discuss their experiences on these films with Tom Savini hosting (the special effects artist of Friday The 13th parts 1 & 4, Dawn Of The Dead [1978], and Day Of The Dead) with several pop culture icons sharing their views most noticably Seth Green (Co-Creator of Robot Chicken, Scott from Austin Powers) and James Roday (Shawn Spencer of USA's Pysch). While the cast speaks on the movies, Tom Savini sets up the material while acting alongside Jason in a mini-movie. Severeal of the most memorable of the actors are Kane Hodder (Jason of Parts 7-8, JGTH: The Final Friday, Jason X) Lar Park Lincoln (Tina of part 7), Derek Mears (Jason of Friday The 13th 2009), Ari Lehman (Jason from Friday The 13th part 1) and many more. A Friday The 13th ride from universal is even shown. For special features, you will not see deleted materials from movies or trailers. You get several fan films, some humerous Jason short films, a poster, and a Jason survivla guide. I recommend this for Friday The 13th fans and horror fans in general.

      Entertaining and Informative; But...

      HNIJ is a fun journey through the history of Jason Voorhees and the Friday the 13th saga, though less budgeted and far less chronologically structured than "Crystal Lake Memories". A great wealth of interviews and visuals from the series, though as one would expect, light on any involved that went on to "greater things". Still, for the F13 enthusiast, a great companion -- though often redundant when matched with "Crystal Lake Memories", the better of the two packages.

      This is an awesome documentary that is definitely for any die-hard fan of the Friday the 13th (movie) series. This documentary features almost all the cast members from the movies and talks about everything including the new re-make. This two-disc set is loaded with tons of great special features and make sure you get your very own soon because it comes with movie money for the re-make of Friday the 13th in theaters Friday February 13, 2009.
