Friday the 13th: The Complete Collection Blu-ray Review
17 September 2013
Summary: Taking advantage of its licensing deal with Paramount, Warner Home Video has assembled all twelve films in the Friday the 13th series in a single collection. Seven of these films are new to Blu-ray. The "completeness" of the collection has been the subject of debate among hardcore fans, who have noted, for example, that the unrated cut of the ninth film in the series, Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday , while available on DVD, has not been included.

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.
