Friday the 13th: The Complete Collection Blu-ray Review
17 September 2013
Conclusion: Leaving aside any concerns one might have about packaging, I cannot imagine a Friday the 13th fan who wouldn't want to acquire The Complete Collection . While it's conceivable that one or more of the seven titles newly released with this set may someday be issued separately, we would have been seen them by now if their respective studios anticipated significant sales from solo releases.
Conclusion: As readers might already guess, I'm pretty tired after sitting through the entire 'Friday the 13th' collection, so suffice it to say, this box set is massive and extensive. Jason and horror fans everywhere will want this since it could rightly be called the definitive edition of the franchise, arriving just in time for Halloween. All films arrive with good to excellent audio and video presentations, some of course looking and sounding better than others.
Excerpt: Originally shot to ride the masked-killer coattails of Halloween , Sean S. Cunningham's Friday the 13th was a surprise hit for distributor Paramount and sparked a legacy of sequels, merchandise and Camp Crystal Lake lore that continues to grow thirty-three years later. The series has never been high-minded, offering gleefully unapologetic reels of creative kills, promiscuous teenagers and questionable acting where other horror films choose subtler thrills.
