Informative but not as deep as I would have liked
28 October 2017 | by bensonmum2See all my reviews

Overall, Return to Crystal Lake: Making 'Friday the 13th' is good, but I was left wanting more. The stories that are presented are interesting enough, but with a series that I've enjoyed since 1980, it's difficult to find new ground that hasn't already been covered. I've seen interviews in the past with Sean Cunningham and Tom Savini, so I didn't learn much new from them. I always enjoy seeing Adrianne King interviewed regardless of whether she's got anything new to say or not. She has a real infectious way about her that I find appealing. Finally, I'm not sure I've ever seen Betsy Palmer discuss her remembrances with Friday the 13th, so this part was a highlight for me. I appreciate her honesty in answering why she took the role - to pay for a new car. Good stuff!

As I always do, I'm rating this as I would any other documentary - using my two pronged approach. First, was it informative? Second, was it entertaining? Informative - like I said, I didn't learn a ton that I wasn't already aware of. Because of that, I can't give it more than 2/5 points for this part of the rating. Entertaining - a big yes. Ms Palmer's contribution was a treat. A 4/5 for entertainment.
