bearAlyse Wax has been a horror community staple for years, formerly being the Associate Editor of FEARnet.com (RIP), and currently writing for an impressive roster of genre sites/publications including ComingSoon.net, Fangoria, ShockTillYouDrop.com, and Blumhouse.com. An accomplished and respected journalist, Wax now can add book author to her bio, with the recent release of Bear Manor Media’s CURIOUS GOODS: BEHIND THE SCENES OF FRIDAY THE 13th: THE SERIES, a comprehensive look back at the FRIDAY THE 13TH spin-off TV series that ran for three seasons from 1987-1990 and took the mythology of the film series and brought to places completely different, telling the story of a shop which houses mysterious objects.


“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 1987, Paramount Studios found success selling a new Star Trek series into syndication. Eager to cash in on other studio-owned properties, Paramount asked producer Frank Mancuso Jr. to develop a series around Friday the 13th (1980), and the new television series was born. The story lines had nothing to do with the popular slasher film franchise, which was both a blessing and curse. The cast and crew were largely young and inexperienced, and they were one of the first Hollywood productions to shoot entirely in Canada.

Interviews include series creator Frank Mancuso Jr.; series stars Louise Robey, John LeMay, and Steve Monarque; notable guest stars including Elias Zarou, Kate Trotter, Wayne Best, Barclay Hope, Angelo Rizacos, Monika Schnarre, and Ingrid Veninger; directors and production crew including Jim Henshaw, Marc Scott Zicree, Tim Bond, William Taub, Francis Delia, Armand Mastroianni, Rob Hedden, Tom McLoughlin, and Atom Egoyan.
