FRIDAY THE 13TH UNCUT Blu-ray
FRIDAY THE 13TH UNCUT – DELUXE EDITION DVD
FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 2 – DELUXE EDITION DVD
FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 3 3-D – DELUXE EDITION DVD

Unleashed February 3, 2009 Showcasing Remastered Picture and Sound and New Bonus Features

HOLLYWOD, CALIF. – A trio of terrifying horror classics featuring one of the most indelible villains in film history is coming to DVD as they’ve never been seen before. On February 3, 2009 Paramount Home Entertainment unleashes Friday the 13th Uncut - Deluxe Edition, Friday the 13th 2 - Deluxe Edition and, for the first time ever in 3-D on DVD, Friday the 13th Part 3 3-D - Deluxe Edition. The DVDs feature a pristine digitally remastered picture and crystal clear 5.1 Surround Sound, plus all new bonus materials with collectible limited edition lenticular packaging. Also, for the first time, terror and suspense abound when a violent killer stalks Camp Crystal Lake in unmatchable picture and sound as Friday The 13th Uncut brings the franchise’s potent mix of suspense and shocking violence to Blu-ray.

Friday the 13th Uncut - Deluxe Edition features the uncensored version of the film that defined the 1980s slasher film phenomenon. Never before released on DVD in the U.S., Friday the 13th Uncut - Deluxe Edition features ten hair-raising seconds of blood and gore that was deemed too gruesome for audiences during the film’s original theatrical showing.

A terrifying tale about a machete-wielding killer who carves a grisly swath through a group of teenaged summer camp counselors, Friday the 13th Uncut - Deluxe Edition stars Kevin Bacon, Laurie Bartram, Harry Crosby, Adrienne King, Robbi Morgan, Mark Nelson and Betsy Palmer. Both DVD and Blu-ray editions include exclusive behind-the-scenes bonus features, a cast and filmmaker reunion and more chilling fun.

The carnage continues in Friday the 13th Part 2 - Deluxe Edition, as Jason emerges from the shadowy woods surrounding Camp Crystal Lake to satisfy his bloodlust with a new crop of campers. Starring John Furey, Adrienne King and Amy Steel, Friday the 13th Part 2 - Deluxe Edition also includes brand new bonus features that add to the horror.

In Friday the 13th Part 3 3-D - Deluxe Edition, Jason wreaks murderous havoc on a motorcycle gang that dares to get between him and his nubile prey. The disc marks the first time this blood-splattered romp in the woods has been seen in all its gory three-dimensional splendor on DVD. The disc comes with 2 pairs of 3-D glasses to ensure an optimal viewing experience, plus a 2-D version of the film. Friday the 13th Part 3 3-D - Deluxe Edition stars Dana Kimmell, Paul Kratka, Nick Savage and Richard Brooker.

The thread title got my hopes up that they decided to release Parts 2 and 3 on Blu-ray at the last second.

It sucks that it doesn't look like they're porting the commentary for Part III over to this DVD release.

Parts 2 and 3 are being released on Blu-Ray in the UK on February 9th. I believe Paramount hasn't region locked any of their previous Blu-Ray releases. There hasn't been any confirmation if part 3 is in 3D though.

Amazon.com: His Name Was Jason: 30 Years of Friday the 13th: Seth Green, Amanda Righetti, Derek Mears, Tom Savini, Travis Van Winkle, James Roday, Judie Aronson, Marcus Nispel, Kane Hodder, Jensen Daggett, Betsy Palmer, Felissa Rose, Daniel Farrands,

That documentary seems to be the best "extra" for the series. I wonder if the sequel Blu's will come when the remake is released.

It could be that Part 2 and 3 will arrive on BD in the US when Warner's BD of the remake is released. If they're coming to the UK there's no reason for them to not eventually make it out in the US.

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

It's a bummer that Paramount is holding on on the sequels.

Parts 4 - 6 are on the horizon for SD ... I assumed those will be out when the remake hits DVD/Blu-ray. So when are they going to get around to doing the sequels on Blu-ray?

C'mon Paramount! Make it happen.
Universal, please release Streets of Fire on Blu-ray.

Yeah, I don't get it either, but at least it looks like these releases will be pretty cheap (except for the BD of the original which is almost double the SRP that the SD DVD version) and it will be nice to finally see it in 3D even thought we'll have to settle for Red/Blue

I do have to say that the 3D version of JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH was the absolute best anaglyphic transfer I've ever seen. No ghosting whatsoever and perfect 3D effects. So, it is possible to make a decent anaglyphic disc. I have yet to see any other 3D DVDs that match it, though. POLAR EXPRESS is a mess. The two Robert Rodriguez flicks are okay, but not perfect. Everything else I've seen has been watchable, but just barely. Hopefully I can retire my red/blue VHD conversion that I have of FRIDAY III. It works better than a lot of conversions, but it still is far-from-perfect. It's a shame that field-sequential 3D won't work on digital televisions. The newer 3D method that works with some high-end projectors is nice (from what I've heard) but it's hardly affordable for the average person (me).

Sorry. 3D nerd rant. I've just been thrilled with the recent 3D renaissance. Posted Image

As have I. I can't wait for some of the 3D features coming this year, like Up and the Toy Story conversion.

Yeah, the thread title had me fooled too.

I'm going to buy the Blu-ray of F13... and I'll also pick up Part 3 because I want the film in 3-D. But if they think I'm going to cave in and get all the other chapters on SD again, they've got another thing coming.
