Affordable Friday the 13th Blu-ray Collection Inbound

Paramount has a brand-new Friday the 13th collection on the way.

By M.T. Bates

Okay, so it’s not all the movies, but it is the first collection we have gotten since 2013, and you won’t have to mortgage your house to afford it. The Paramount films (Parts 1-8) will be finding a new blu-ray home with Diabolik DVD Releases. For $30, the 8 disc Ultimate Collection comes packed tighter than 2 naked teens stuffed in a sleeping bag with extras!

Due out (and up for pre-order now) on February 13th, 2018, fans will be delighted to own this relatively inexpensive set since the now out of print “Complete Collection” apparently commands upwards of $500 on Amazon and Ebay. Seriously.

Spanning the Paramount only films, this 8 disc set is sure to please with this list of extras:

  • Trailers: – Theatrical Trailer
  • Commentary: - Commentary by director Joe Zito, screenwriter Barney Cohen and editor Joel Goodman
  • Commentary: – Commentary by director/co-screenwriter Danny Steinmann with cast and crew

Not too shabby for $30. Obviously missing from this set is the fabled uncut X rated version of Part VII, but any longtime fan of the series knows it is rumored any prints of that version of Part VII, have long been lost or destroyed. This is still a set worthy of anyone’s collection. Pre order your copy here.

Think this incomplete set has enough bonuses and extras to get you to fork over $30, or are the missing 4 movies a deal breaker? Sound off below.
