Thirteen’s the Lucky Number for Horror Fans When…

FRIDAY THE 13TH:THE COMPLETE COLLECTION Debuts on Blu-ray™ Friday the 13th of September

All 12 films from Warner Bros. and Paramount in One “Horrific” Collection for the First Time!

10-Disc Set Includes 7 Blu-ray Debuts, 11 Hours of Extra Content in Collectible Tin Packaging, 40-page Book with Behind-The-Scenes Photos, Camp Crystal Lake Counselor Patch and More.


Burbank, Calif., June 11, 2013 – On September 13th, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will provide plenty of blood-curdling thrills when Friday The 13th: The Complete Collection debuts on Blu-ray™. 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. 700

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.

Out of all the Fridays, i liked the original one, and the one that introduced jason to the world. The first one was filmed partly in Blairstown where my dad and stepmom lives, in Camp Nobebosco (Camp Crystal Lake), Hope, NJ (the cemetery), the Blairstown Diner, and in Freehold, NJ (the ending). I wonder if Halloween will get a treatment for its 35th anniversary as 15 years ago John Carpenter restored the movie for its vhs and dvd release. Next year marks 30 years of nightmare on elm street, so expect WB to do a reissue of the original series. The remakes of each classic suck. In 2014 texas chainsaw will turn 40, and in 2015 jaws turns 40 as well. 2016 is 40 for the omen, 2017 for suspiria.
