- Factory sealed DVD
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has officially announced the addition of Friday the 13th: The Complete Collection to their upcoming slate of Blu-ray releases. The collection features all twelve franchise films in collectible tin packaging, more than eleven hours of bonus content, a 40-page book with behind-the-scenes photos, a Camp Crystal Lake counselor patch and more. With seven of the films making their Blu-ray debuts, the 10-disc collection arrives on Friday, September 13th.
This intense slasher series is one of the longest-running and most successful horror franchises in film history, surpassing the domestic theatrical box-office grosses of such legendary series as A Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The film that turned psycho killer Jason Voorhees and his infamous hockey mask into a pop culture icon has also bested the horror competition as the #1 home entertainment seller.
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. The box set has been assembled as a result of the strategic distribution alliance between Paramount and Warner announced last fall, granting Warner exclusive video distribution rights to over 600 Paramount titles.
The 10-disc collection includes twelve films spread across nine Blu-ray discs, as well as a “Killer Extras” Bonus DVD full of additional special features on the making of the famous franchise. The 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 its 200 interviews, 600 photos, storyboards and concept art. Also included is a brand new, official Camp Crystal Lake embroidered counselor patch.
Finally, Friday the 13th: The Complete Collection includes digital versions of all twelve 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.
While complete tech specs and extras have yet to be detailed, the 10-disc set will include all the Friday the 13th films up to 2009 remake of the original film.
