Friday the 13th Announced for Blu-ray

Posted November 3, 2008 12:10 PM by Josh Dreuth

Paramount Paramount Home Entertainment has announced that they will bring 'Friday the 13th Unrated: Deluxe Edition' to Blu-ray on February 3rd, day-and-date with the DVD re-release. Technical specs have yet to be announced, but you can expect the usual Paramount treatment of 1080p video accompanied by a Dolby TrueHD soundtrack.

Extras have also yet to be announced for the Blu-ray, but it should mirror the DVD release which includes:

* Commentary: Commentary by director Sean Cunningham (on the WB international version - trying to access)
* Fresh Cuts: New Tales from "Friday the 13th"
* Man Behind the Legacy: Sean S. Cunningham
* Friday the 13th - Special Reunion
* Lost Tales from Camp Blood - Part 1
* Theatrical Trailer - Used on 2004 release

Well, I have to say I am fucking SHOCKED. Friday the 13th on blu, that's pretty freakin' sweet, although I prefer Part 2 to the original. You never know, maybe they'll be releasing the rest of the movies in the series down the line (like they did for the original DVD releases, 2 a year).

Yeah that's the way I'm feeling. However, I'm keeping my expectations high for this, as Paramount's standard def release of part 1 looks fantastic. And I've yet to be disappointed by the image quality of a Paramount blu-ray.

The specs on the other DVDs don't sound too great IMO. Looks like I'll just be picking up the Anchor Bay documentary (His name was Jason) and skipping these. But it's good to see Paramount going HD with F13, even if it's just the first one.

This is awesome news. Hopefully the sequels will follow and they'll get the same treatment. After all, this remake is borrowing from the sequels more than anything.

Well, neither. Only part 1 is getting a blu-ray release for now. All three films are definitely still coming out in standard def, and in "deluxe" editions. Not sure if they're gonna be in boxset form, though.
