Description

The acting in Friday the 13th is what I often compare other slashers to. I sincerely love the cast of characters that we get. Sure, they are generic for a slasher but in 1980 there wasn’t THAT many to compare to. Not like the sudden wave to follow the summer after. The cast hams it up at times but knows when to bring the right emotion for what the scene calls for. The time of milestones with the Friday the 13th is behind us. From Part VI forward we get outlandish stories and scenaries set against Jason killing people in brutal and inventive ways. When we move on from Part VI we enter Part VII which is more of a supernatural horror tale featuring psychics, ghosts, and an undead Jason. It is one of the more unique Friday the 13th films and probably one of my least favorites. I only watched it a few times and remembered some cool moments but outside of that I couldn’t tell you much about it until I rewatched with the others in the Scream Factory blu set. This movie did not hold up well and I can safely say that this is the worst in the entire series. It’s almost painful to watch now. NEW Blu-Ray 3-D version of the film (To watch the 3D version, you must have a fully capable 3D TV and 3D blu-ray player) PART 10: JASON X: Missing audio during a scene in the film in which Jason kills camp counselors in a sleeping bag.

Starring – John Shepherd (Friday the 13th: The Series, Quantum Leap), Shavar Ross (Family Matters, Growing Pains), and Tiffany Helm (In the Tall Grass, Freddy’s Nightmares)

Secrets Galore Behind the Gore – a 3-part featurette on the makeup effects of Part 1, Part 4 and Part 7 Young Tommy Jarvis may have escaped from Crystal Lake, but he's still haunted by his nemesis, the maniacal serial killer Jason Voorhees. The story for this one is, once again, on the goofy side. It doesn’t feel like a very good continuation of the Friday the 13th film but you can almost see if as another ANOES. The film uses an interesting idea to bring the two together BUT there could have been so many other ways to get these to face off. With that being said, a lot of the scenarios the “teens” find themselves in and how they handle it just feels rushed and not thought out. I feel like the film was brought together in a brainstorming session with not rewriting or polishing done to it. FRIDAY THE 13TH UNCUT: English / Dutch / Finnish / French / German / Italian / Norwegian / Portuguese-Brazilian / Spanish-Castilian / Spanish-Latin American / Swedish The acting in this one is probably my second favorite in the series. Thom Mathews is an amazing actor that not only kills it as Tommy Jarvis but has fans quoting him from his peformances in the first two Return of the Living Dead films. Feldman brought the character to life when he portrayed him as a child but Mathews is the Jarvis most of us think of. It’s a real shame he was not cast as Jarvis in the previous installment. The supporting cast is just as good with most of the characters more down to earth and serious. I do enjoy the more out there characters but this darker story would have fell apart if those comedic performances were delivered.

FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VII: THE NEW BLOOD Subtitles: English SDH† / French-Parisian / Spanish-Latin American NEW Chicago to Connecticut: The Early Career of Harry Manfredini – an interview with composer Harry Manfredini The first Friday the 13th catapulted slashers to stardom. Their simple story and cheap production value made them extremely profitable so hundred of production companies decided to jump on the craze. The sequel introduced the now iconic Jason and made his name the face of the slasher sub-genre.New York Has a New Problem: The Making of Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (HD – 18:02) When I was in college I wasn’t collecting movies like I once was. I was on my own, working a full time job, and a student full time. That doesn’t mean I had cut horror completely out of my life. I just was unable to spend the money on movies like I once was. That didn’t stop me from going out and watching the Friday the 13th remake when it was released.

I genuinely love remakes. John Carpenter’s The Thing, Vincent Price in the House of Wax, Marcus Nispel’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Tom Savini’s Night of the Living Dead are fantastic remakes that I’ve spent many hours enjoying. I say this because I’m not one of these people that immediately hate on remakes without giving them a chance. Friday the 13th is not a bad remake but it’s painfully forgettable without bringing us something new to watch. Honestly, it could have been a little more entertaining if I had not spent the last week watching the original series before this one.FRIDAY THE 13TH PART V: A NEW BEGINNING: English DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 Surround / French-Parisian, Spanish-Latin American – Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono Keep collections to yourself or inspire other shoppers! Keep in mind that anyone can view public collections - they may also appear in recommendations and other places. NEW Freddy vs. Jason Storyboards and Galleries: Production – Behind the Scenes (SD – 33 in all – 2:48)

The story for this one takes the standard and true Friday the 13th slasher story and finally gives the character of Jason an ending…for a limited time. The movie once again delivers on the teens going to the lake that Jason calls home where he kills them one by one. With that being said, the film tries to give a sense of closure with Jason’s death. In 1984 this ending was a big deal but those that watched these films after that date knows this was very short lived.It’s safe to say that with such a large selection, nearly all of the previous DVD and Blu-ray releases of this series can be retired. Even so, there a couple of items that haven’t been included. The Return to Camp Crystal Lake documentary from the film’s Blu-ray release in the UK is not accounted for, nor are the Crystal Lake Memories and His Name Was Jason documentaries. However, their absence is not felt, and they are still fully available elsewhere (and highly recommended as well). It’s also worth noting that the From Crystal Lake to Manhattan DVD set was originally meant to include the featurette Scary Trailers, which was to feature interviews with the likes of visual effects producer Dan Corey and voice-over artist Don LaFontaine discussing the making of the series’ trailers. Whether it was something that was cut at the last minute or simply not used, it’s a shame that it still hasn’t seen the light of day. Some may be disappointed in the absence of additional cut footage, deleted scenes, TV edits, or workprint footage that has been floating around on the internet for years, but be rest assured: if it could have been included, it would have been. This is an exhaustive and as close to definitive Friday the 13th film collection on Blu-ray as we’re ever going to get. It will take one days, even weeks to get through all of it. When I was in middle school I would finish watching the rest of the films in the series with my grandmother and uncle. I still have an appreciation for JGtH that most horror fans do not but, as I’ve said before, my taste in movies is very different than the normal horror fan. A few weeks ago I got the Scream Factory box set in and decided to dive into it. Alice Lives features an interview with Alice Cooper and director Jeffrey Abelson about the music from Part VI and the accompanying music video. Legends Never Die speaks to Tom McLoughlin about the famous Hollywood cemetery where he wrote Part VI, as well as his views on what happens after death. Life, Death, and Jason Voorhees interviews Tom McLoughlin at the same cemetery, speaking mostly on the same subjects. The Road to Crystal Lake interviews Sean S. Cunningham and he discusses the longevity of the franchise. In Faceless Evil, Cunningham discusses the character of Jason. Jason Was Here shows what the filming locations of films 3 through 6 look like today. Scream Queens is a 2014 documentary that interviews a number of women within the horror genre about the contradictory nature of the genre when it comes to women. Slice and Dice is a 2013 documentary about the slasher genre featuring many people who work within it. The Trailer Reel presents 12 trailers from the Friday the 13th series all in a row. The Freddy vs. Jason Storyboards galleries contain a total of 437 images while the Production galleries contain a total of 120 images. The Friday the 13th (2009) Electronic Press Kit features interviews with the cast and crew, as well as B-Roll footage. The Friday the 13th Series Newspaper Ad Still Gallery contains 57 newspaper clippings from the theatrical releases of all 12 films. This disc also contains an Easter egg. When the Friday the 13th Series Newspaper Ad Still Gallery is highlighted, press right to reveal a bloody egg, which contains two vintage Cinemax TV ads for Friday the 13th Part II and Friday the 13th Part III. Finally, the death scenes in this film are legendary. A few do take place off camera leaving it up to the viewer’s imagination but the ones we do get are memorable. Effects were handled by the legendary Tom Savini so they insanely fun. Overall, Friday the 13th is a damn near perfect but you are not here because you haven’t seen the film but curious about the 40th Anniversary release. The blu looks great. In fact, it’s leagues better than my DVD release of the film. Starring – Thom Mathews (Return of the Living Dead, Return of the Living Dead Part II), Jennifer Cooke (Deadly Nightmares, V), and David Kagen (Freddy’s Nightmares, 21 Jump Street)
