“FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION” hits Blu this fallMovies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
Just as the rights revert to Paramount exclusively, Warner Bros. is taking advantage of having all FRIDAYs under one roof and bringing every entry in the beloved horror series to Blu this fall.
Releasing Friday, September 13 is FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION, featuring all twelve films on nine discs (that’s with FREDDY VS. JASON and the 2009 redo from Marcus Nispel), including the Blu debut of IV: THE FINAL CHAPTER, V: A NEW BEGINNING, VI: JASON LIVES, VII: THE NEW BLOOD, VIII: JASON TAKES MANHATTAN, JASON GOES TO HELL and JASON X.
A tenth disc will host bonus material and special features, but unfortunately nothing new. In fact, it seems most everything aside from the hi-def transfers will have all been previously available. The set will come packaged in a collectible tin that comprises the films, the ported special features and a 40-page booklet excerpted from must-own FRIDAY tome CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES. There is the Camp Crystal Lake embroidered Counselor Patch, however.
Here’s how the discs shape up:
· 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)
· Disc 5 – FRIDAY THE 13TH PART V: A NEW BEGINNING (1985) / FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VI: JASON LIVES (1986)
· Disc 6 – FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VII: THE NEW BLOOD (1988) / FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VIII: JASON TAKES MANHATTAN (1989)
