The following is the motivation behind my creating the Limited Edition of my own Friday the 13th script and making it available to You.
As you probably know, I personally correspond with my fans on Social Media. So, after chatting with a Facebook buddy from the UK (M.) I came to realize that a Company by the name of Royal Books in Baltimore was selling & misrepresenting a copy of my personal Friday the 13th script (1979) as MY original. How dare they???
FYI: I still have in MY possession my original Friday the 13th script.
I brought my original F13 script with me to Camp Crystal Lake on April 13th 2018 ( www.crystallaketours.org) along with my original cowboy boots and continuity Polaroids from 1979! Everyone loved seeing, touching and feeling what survived with me 39 years later at Camp Blood!
As you can see below in my conversations with M.:
Hope you are well.
Just had a question about the script below that is being sold on a script website for $4500.
(sure enough it was a photo of my script but I still have my original personal Friday the 13th script!!)
I'm interested in buying it but just want to make sure first that it is definitely your script, it has your signature as you can see ,and that it was definitely used by you on set .
Many thanks Adrienne . M.
Yes its being sold by royal books in usa CB online if you google it and type in the script you'll see it .
Its at $4500 and now that you've told me that I may not order any scripts from them .
They are apprentlya reputable company.
If you don't mind accepting my facebook freind request Adrienne I would be interested in purchasing a copy yes,let me know how much.M.
I just checked and they are royal books in Baltimore,if you google it Adrienne you'll see the site. Hello Adrienne
Received a reply from Royal. Books to say after some research they think it is a copy but get this :
They will still sell it at *$4,500 because its sighned by Sean Cunningham .!
And would I like 20%off the script as I pointed it out to them.
No mention on there site description of the script that it is a copy. M.
Well this sure seems like Royal Books of Baltimore is trying to take advantage of my Campers! Not under my watch!!! And they would not take it down!
So…. “This is the only way I know how!” to deal with this nonsense!
I created a limited edition of my original FRIDAY 13 script for my serious Campers and Collectors. I sought out a specialty Printer to make your script look and feel just like mine from 1979. Already signed by Sean Cunningham, I will add my signature for you with personalization to You if you desire.
Then I will number your limited edition script plus you receive a corresponding Certificate of Authenticity signed by me.
I know you'll enjoy reading what did and did NOT make it into the movie!
See you back at Camp!
Your 1st Final Girl
