Want to feel super old, you guys? Well here is one for ya. The first Friday the 13th is turning 40 this May. The good news in this very existential time capsule is that we are getting a very cool steelbook blu-ray to celebrate the slashtastic anniversary.
“With the addition of unrated footage, and insightful special features, plunge deeper into the film that spawned eleven sequels and the genre’s unstoppable bad guy, Jason Voorhees.
A new owner and several young counselors gather to reopen Camp Crystal Lake, where a young boy drowned and several vicious murders occurred years earlier. They’ve ignored locals’ warnings that the place has a death curse… and one by one they find out how unlucky Friday the 13th can be as they are stalked by a violent killer.”
Friday the 13th lead to an entire franchise. Some great some… not so great. But all of them have had that strange veering line that is Jason Voorhees… even in space or jumping in and out of bodies whilst eating hearts.
The big question here is, do you need another copy of Friday the 13? I own it on multiple formats and have purchased it several times as part of different collections. But, yea. I’ll probably buy this one too.
The blu-ray is set to release on May 5, but you can pre order yours now over HERE.
