In the horror community, often horror hounds love a good documentary just as much as they love the latest terrifying movies that are on release. And now, the next Friday the 13th-driven documentary has been made available for free!
From director Kevin R. Phipps comes Friday the 13th: Part 3 – The Memoriam Documentary; a 40-minute doc that throws the spotlight on the third picture in this most iconic of horror franchises. That third film, of course, is the movie that first saw Jason don his famed hockey mask. Part of the reason for this documentary was to pay tribute to Richard Brooker, the actor who played Jason in Friday the 13th: Part 3, who sadly passed away in 2013.
Phipps has brought together several of Friday the 13th: Part 3’s key players, not to mention friends of Brooker’s. As the director himself put it in a previous interview, “This documentary’s intentions are to preserve the memory of this movie and Richard Brooker.”
With the documentary now available on YouTube, you can check it out for yourself in the player below:
This isn’t the first time that we’ve had a Friday the 13th documentary, with His Name Was Jason and Crystal Lake Memories spanning the entire franchise and instantly becoming favourites of many a horror fan. Elsewhere, fellow big hitters such as the Halloween and A Nightmare on Elm Street franchises have also been given the in-depth documentary treatment.
