One well-known horror franchise is about to get a definitive box set fans have longed for. Friday The 13th Collection [Deluxe Edition] is officially coming to Blu-ray Disc on October 13th, via Scream Factory. The twelve total films included in the 16-disc box set are listed below:

      • Friday the 13th (1980)
      • Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981)
      • Friday the 13th Part 3 (1982)
      • Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984)
      • Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning (1985)
      • Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (1986)
      • Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood (1988)
      • Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan (1989)
      • Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday (1993)
      • Jason X (2001)
      • Freddy vs. Jason (2003)
      • Friday the 13th (2009)

Tech specs here for this upcoming set include new 4K scans for the first four films in the franchise as well as a new 2K scan of the “Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday” film. The various aspect ratios and audio formats set to be here on the films have not yet been fully detailed by Scream, but stay tuned for an update. You cannot yet find the Blu-ray set available for preorder over at Amazon but stay tuned for an update on that, as well. In the meantime, you can find the Blu-ray set is available for preorder directly via ShoutFactory.com with some added bonus. It is certainly worth noting that this set will be limited in its run to a total of 13,000 units (according to the distributor’s press release). Physically it features a rigid slipcase to hold the discs in their individual cases with newly commissioned artwork. It will also include a collectible 40-page booklet.

Also, I’ve managed to learn directly the folks at Scream that you will be getting the third film (Friday the 13th: Part 3) for the very first time in digital 3D via the Blu-ray 3D format (as well as in 2D). That means there will be no cardboard red/cyan glasses or such are set to be included for that film, as were previously with the original Blu-ray from Paramount. Some of the new extras have been finished and announced, however, some of them are still in the works and will actually be detailed at a later point. So, you can expect to hear about that in the coming months — via an update to this post and on social media.

After the break, you can find the full details regarding this highly-anticipated upcoming Blu-ray box set.
