Default Friday the 13th: The Ultimate Collection Announced

Source: Paramount Home Entertainment
July 27, 2011


If you haven't already grabbed any of the Friday the 13th films, there's a just-announced boxed set hitting this October to celebrate the numerically-reversed 31st anniversary. The good news is that the whole package is hitting in a deluxe version complete with your very own Jason Vorhees hockey mask (as shown below). The bad news is that the set looks to be DVD only, leaving the franchise Blu-ray tally at only the first three films and the remake.

As readers are no doubt aware, the first eight films were released through Paramount, meaning that, while the set takes us all the way to Manhattan, Jason Goes to Hell, Jason X, Freddy vs. Jason and the 2009 remake are not included.

Full details from the press release are as follows:

Take a ride down memory lane with everyone’s favorite psychotic killer Jason Voorhees in the to-die-for DVD set FRIDAY THE 13TH THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION arriving just in time for Halloween on October 4, 2011 from Paramount Home Entertainment. When the original Friday The 13th debuted in 1980, it captured audiences’ imaginations and permeated our collective psyche. 31 years later, the iconic machete-wielding killer continues to haunt, fascinate and terrify a new generation.

This comprehensive set includes every murderous moment from Friday The 13th-Uncut Deluxe Edition, Friday The 13th Part 2 Deluxe Edition, Friday The 13th Part 3-3D Deluxe Edition (with two pairs of 3D glasses), Friday The 13th-The Final Chapter Deluxe Edition, Friday The 13th Part V: A New Beginning Deluxe Edition, Friday The 13th Part VI: Jason Lives Deluxe Edition, Friday The 13th Part VII: The New Blood Deluxe Edition and Friday The 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan Deluxe Edition. This extraordinary collection, which will be released in a Limited Edition of only 50,000 numbered units worldwide, includes a replica of Jason’s hockey mask, an 8-page Collector’s Booklet and hours of special features including slashed scenes, making of featurettes, killer commentaries and much, much more. FRIDAY THE 13TH THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION will be available for the suggested retail price of just $39.99 U.S./$42.00 Canada.
