"You see, Jason was my son, and today is his birthday..."
Whilst the hope of any future Friday the 13th films or new video game content still lies in wait whilst the legal battle rages on, the original film's 40th Anniversary will be celebrated this year.
Paramount Pictures are celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the iconic slasher with a new limited edition blu-ray steelbook. Set for release this May the steelbook features the classic poster artwork on the cover, an array of special features, unrated footage and a blu-ray disc of the uncut version of Sean Cunningham's film.
RIP into the chilling UNCUT EDITION of Friday the 13th. 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.
