Friday The 13th Blu-ray Boxed Set

‘Friday the 13th’ Mega Blu-ray Set Coming From Shout! Factory

Friday the 13th (1980) turned 40 years old in 2020 (read our retro/tribute here). With the exception of a rather junky Blu-ray of the original film, the anniversary came and went with nary a whisper. The humanity! How could the horror gods treat this franchise with such disrespect? Sure, that Cunningham/Miller lawsuit is still dragging on, but someone has to do SOMETHING to honor the 4 decade milestone! Right?

Well, I’ve got some great news for you, Friday fans. The mother of all Friday the 13th Blu-ray boxed sets is in the works from Shout! Factory. You gotta see this thing to believe it.

Read on for all the early, gory details!

Friday The 13th Blu-ray Set

“WHAT’S IN THE BOX?!?”

A lot! Holy crap! You’re not going to believe it. And this isn’t even everything. There’s a ton of other stuff that hasn’t been announced yet. We’ll certainly bring you more info as we get it. This set is limited to 13,000 copies. If you order from Shout! Factory directly (first 7,000 orders), you can get a limited edition 36 x 24 lithograph. It looks killer! This is a region 1 release (US and Canada).

Read on for what we know so far. To the lake!

Final Thoughts

Holy shit! My wallet! I gotta have it, though! My pre-order is already in. This blows away the last deluxe Blu-box they did. That thing is long out of print, too, so this is great news if you still need to upgrade your DVDs. At $159.95, I don’t think the price is bad, either. This is a ton of content! Look at all those special features. The commentaries! This is so awesome!

What do you think? Are you gonna shell out the case for this killer Friday the 13th Blu-ray boxed set? Of course you are! You can pre-order it here. If you’re waffling at all, you’re going to want to get it. The last Blu set went out of print and was fetching hundreds on eBay. I guarantee this will sell out, too. JUST DO IT!

Are you excited for this new Blu release? Which special features are you most looking forward to most? Tell us in the comments!
