Required Reading (Last Minute X-mas Gift Idea Edition): "Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th" by Peter M. Bracke


God, this is a thing of beauty. Big, beautiful and badass; kinda like Jason. While most film fans discount horror movies, they have an even greater sense of animosity reserved for Friday the 13th and its slasher buddies. But any fan of film would be missing out if they did not drop serious to read how this series evolved over the years. This book may be for die-hard Jason fans (like me) but it is also one of the most thorough discussions of filmmaking ever released on the market. This is the nitty gritty people.

I would also like to recommend, if you want to spend a little less this Christmas, the book "Making Friday the 13th: The Legend of Cammp Blood" and the DVD "His Name Was Jason: 30 years of Friday the 13th".
