  • Upcoming Friday The 13th Blu-Rays

    FRIDAYTHE13THFILMS.COM: So we know a bastard cropped reissue of the reboot is coming from New Line's home division but over in Paramount land plans are afoot to drop a stack of Friday the 13th releases onto the market on October 4. Now obviously you know that Paramount will almost always disappoint you, so no never-on-blu-ray releases. Let's take a look at what they are pooping out, then.

    Friday the 13th DVD Collection
    Amazon have no information on this - but DVD Empire have more, including a fair price of $37. The proper name is Friday The 13th: 2011 DVD Collection - Limited Edition Gift Set and the product item page gives a description. Neither site list a number of discs, presently.

    Return to Crystal Lake like never before with Friday the 13th Kill. . .Kill. . . Kill. . . Collection Limited Edition DVD box set. They're all here: from the first Friday the 13th: Uncut to Friday the 13th: Jason Takes Manhattan. Re-experience the terror and the gore from the exhaulted executioner who never dies in this definitive collection of all 8 of the Friday the 13th films.

    Okay, that's not too shabby. The From Crystal Lake To Manhattan boxset from 2004 is out of print so this would collect the Deluxe Editions into one set. And that will be handy for those that don't have 'em, especially considering some of the later entries are now scarce themselves.

    Friday the 13th Blu-ray & Friday the 13th DVD
    The 1980 original will be back on the market in what is presumably a reissue. Can we get some better cover art then the Deluxe Edition, Paramount? Although it looked certifiably badass, the killer on the cover looked like they were wearing black leather. And I don't know about you but the thought of Mrs Voorhees all leathered up makes me throw up in my mouth a little. Oh okay, and a little turned on.

    Friday the 13th Part 3 Blu-ray & Friday the 13th Part 3 DVD
    Hopefully it's just Amazon's lazy, inaccurate placeholder details but they are listing the ratio for these as 1.85:1 when the previous releases were 2.35:1 which was what the film was shot in. If it carries through with a cropped 1.85:1 ratio, I don't have to tell you why that's a bad thing for purists. In an ideal world Paramount would use these re-releases to offer up a better 3D print. The existing one was lambasted.

    Friday the 13th Deluxe Edition Four-Pack
    Coming earlier than the others on September 20, this will contain the first four Deluxe Edition DVDs. It's a simple enough dumping of old stock. Of minor note, DVD Empire already stock a blu-ray version of that upcoming set, calledFriday the 13th: 4 Movie Collection. It's part of a Paramount Blu-ray sale and is listed as having only 1 Disc. While I would love to report that Paramount just discreetly dropped Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter onto the Blu-ray format, there's evidence on that page to suggest it is a glitch on DVD Empire's part and the release is actually just the first film with an incorrect product title.

    When will Paramount learn? Maybe after they're done whoring Star Trek, their “respectable” genre franchise. Anyhow, someone must have fucked up by letting some of those Deluxe Editions turn out so good! Think we'll get parts 4-8 on Blu-ray before there's another format jump? Let us pray.

      I'm gonna merge this with the other F13th thread.

      And on that note, wow, is Paramount ever milking this series for all its worth, maybe even more.
      Rock! Shock! Pop!


      • #4
        I forgot ALL about the fact that I created that other thread. I only like the first one, JASON LIVES, JASON GOES TO HELL, and that much maligned FREDDY VS. JASON.


        • #5
          I have the first box they put out and I-VI of the DEs. I should get VII and VIII. That'll be cheaper'n getting the box...again.


          • #6
            Between the two of us we had the 1st run of single discs, then the box. We sold off the single discs and got the SE's when they came out and also have 1, 2 and 3 on BD. I won't be bothering with these again unless they bring out the other sequels on Blu-ray.
            Rock! Shock! Pop!


            • #7
              Oh and that boxed set cover art is fuggin' ugly.
              Rock! Shock! Pop!

                I just found out the first four movies ARE on blu-ray, in a collection. CLICK HERE.

                  So a bit of news - WB is handling a lot of Paramount catalog titles now, including the F13 movies.

                  Bloody Disgusting posted this screen cap of some back and forth on FB...

                    I've held off watching the F13 movies for ages in the hope of a BD boxset - looks like that waiting could now pay off.
                    Really looking forward to seeing them all again, I don't think I can even remember lots of New Beginning, New Blood and Manhattan.

                      Adding fuel to the fire, according to a post here Netflix have added parts 3-8 in full 1080p HD. Which I guess means it's safe to assume that the transfers are done.
                      Rock! Shock! Pop!

                        And the boxed set news is official, coming to Blu-ray on September 13th!

                        The 10-disc collection ($129.95 SRP) includes the twelve films on nine Blu-ray discs, as well as a killer DVD bonus disc full of special features on the making of the famous franchise. The must-own set will be presented in a collectible tin case with 11 hours of previously released special features and a 40-page soft cover book. The book is excerpted from Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday The 13th, a fan-favorite volume that's viewed as the ultimate memoir of the series, and highlights some of the 200 interviews, 600 photos, storyboards, concept art and more. Also included is a brand new, official Camp Crystal Lake embroidered Counselor Patch.

                        Friday The 13th: The Complete Collection also includes digital versions of all 12 films with UltraViolet, allowing viewers to download and instantly stream the films to a wide range of devices from computers and compatible tablets to smartphones, game consoles, Internet-connected TVs and Blu-ray players.

                        One of the most frightening franchises in film history, Friday The 13th focuses primarily on the character of Jason Voorhees, who drowned as a young child at Camp Crystal Lake due to the inattentiveness of camp counselors. Many years later, the camp becomes the scene of a number of murders - all of which are either committed or motivated by the avenging Jason, who forever lurks at Crystal Lake with his finely-honed machete.

                        Films in The Collection include:
                        · Disc 1 - Friday the 13th (1980)
                        · Disc 2 - Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981)
                        · Disc 3 - Friday the 13th Part 3 in 3D (1982)
                        · Disc 4 - Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984) NEW TO BLU-RAY
                        · Disc 5 - Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning (1985) / Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (1986) NEW TO BLU-RAY
                        · Disc 6 - Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988) / Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989) NEW TO BLU- RAY
                        · Disc 7 - Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday (1993) / Jason X (2002) NEW TO BLU-RAY
                        · Disc 8 - Freddy vs. Jason (2003)

                            So no new special features? How were the old special edition DVDs? I never picked any of them up. I've always been interested in the deleted gore footage for VII.


                            • #15
                              They haven't announced the specs yet, but I'm just hoping they port the old extras over, and an uncut 7 would be nice.

                              Does anyone else qualify the reboot as a sequel between JgtH and X beside me?
