‘Friday the 13th' Set to Hit Tuesday, Oct. 515 Jul, 2004 By: Brendan Howard
Devoted to a character who helped introduce one of the world's cheapest Halloween costumes, all eight “Friday the 13th” movies — replete with hockey-mask-wearing, knife-wielding Jason — are coming out in a new DVD set from Paramount Home Entertainment.
The five DVD-set Friday the 13th: From Crystal Lake to Manhattan — Ultimate Edition DVD Collection streets Oct. 5 (prebook Aug. 24).
The films appear two per disc, with the fifth disc devoted to deleted scenes and footage as well as featurettes on the cast of the films, the gory special effects and props, and the mythology of the Jason character and its appeal to audiences through the years since the first film debuted in 1980.
Audio commentaries appear on Friday the 13th Part 3, Part VI: Jason Lives, Part VII: The New Blood and Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan.
