Curious Goods: Behind the Scenes of Friday the 13th: The Series by Alyse Wax Review

“Lewis Vendredi made a deal with the devil to sell cursed antiques, but he broke the pact, and it cost him his soul. His niece, Micki, and her cousin, Ryan, inherited the store, and with it, the curse. Now they must get everything back—and the real terror begins.”

So opens Friday the 13th: The Series. In the first-ever examination of the TV series, author Alyse Wax delves into the series episode-by-episode, with more than sixty exclusive interviews with the cast, writers, directors, and producers, as well as nearly fifty never published behind-the-scenes photos from the cast and crew’s personal collections.

My Review:
I was born in 1982, and was reading Stephen King wen I was 8. This series came out when I was 5. I have mostly caught reruns, or taped episodes on VHS. This book was great for me, because I was able to read about each episode and I loved the behind the scenes info. This is the type of series that has episodes that really scare you, and those were the creepy ones that stuck with me throughout the years. The author did a great job of including people involved in making the series as well as the people that acted in the series as well. The interviews were great and I loved getting in the minds of the people involved. It was a trip into the past. What a great time to read this book, right near Halloween. This is a great read for fans of the series, television fans and Halloween fans. I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy to review from Bear  Manor Media. however all opinions are my own.
