Friday 13th BluRay Collection: Finally!

Do you feel that you haven’t had enough Jason in your life lately? Well, good news: Paramount just released the “Friday the 13th” 8-film collection on Blu-ray for only $25. Now you can cower in terror for each kill and leer at every teenager behaving badly. The first 8 Friday the 13th films have never looked better! It’s tough for me to pick a favorite out of this collection, but films 4-8 have particularly good transfers. Part 8, “Jason Takes Manhattan” particularly stands out as looking great while “A New Beginning,” the fifth one, is a better film than its reputation. The best commentary goes to director Joseph Zito and writer Barry Corbin of “Part IV: The Final Chapter” as they candidly discuss what they shot and didn’t and what they like about the film and what they don’t. One caveat: Although there is a 3D option for the third film, Paramount decided not to include the glasses. Bad move, Paramount! But otherwise, this is a wonderful collection for slasher film enthusiasts as it gives us the most pristine prints with the best extras imaginable. Don’t miss this collection!
