Here! Take my money!

We've all heard the rumors that we'd soon be getting our grubby little hands on a set containing all of the FRIDAY THE 13th films, and today we can all celebrate as Warner Brothers Home Entertainment has set a date in stone for the FRIDAY THE 13th: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION Blu-Ray set. That date? Appropriately enough, Friday, September 13th 2013. Read on for the deets!

For the first time, all twelve FRIDAY THE 13th films will be packaged together, (with seven of them making Blu-ray debuts) as a result of a strategic distribution alliance between Paramount and Warner announced last fall, granting Warner exclusive video distribution rights to over 600 Paramount titles. The set also includes a Friday The 13th Killer Extras Bonus DVD.

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, with total sales of $119.7M to date.

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)
  • Disc 9 - Friday the 13th (2009) (Theatrical Version and "Killer Cut" Extended Version)
  • Disc 10 - Killer Bonus DVD Disc

We'll keep you updated on this killer set as we hear it!

Extra Tidbit: Do I even need to ask? I'm sure you'll be getting this set as soon as it comes available!

If this series doesn't have restored cut scenes with alternate viewings between cut/uncut versions...count me out. I can live with my old boxset. Why give money AGAIN if they won't give the fans what we want?
