Editorial Reviews

FRIDAY THE 13TH: They comprise the most successful and shocking tales of terror in cinema history. Now, for the first time, the first eight classic Friday The 13th movies are available together in this killer DVD collection. Beginning with the picture that critics have called the original slasher flick, this collection spans nine years and includes seven additional blood-soaked, suspense-filled sagas starring one of the most horifying characters ever to wear a hockey mask and wield a machete: Jason Voorhees. It's a splatterfest of fear all the way from Crystal Lake to the mean streets of Manhattan. In addition, the collection includes a special disc filled with never-before-seen footage and fabulous extras that will slay even the most jaded horrorfilm aficionado! FRIDAY THE 13TH PART 2: Two months after the events of the original Friday the 13th, Alice (Adrienne King), the lone survivor or Mrs. Vorhees' killing spree, meets a grisly end in her city apartment. Five years later, a new group of co-eds converges near Camp Crystal Lake, scene of the original massacre and the drowning of Jason Vorhees that preceded it. This time around, the horny collegians attend a nearby training school for camp counselors. As half the group parties in town, an unseen assailant picks off the other half one by one. Only when camp leader Paul (John Furey) and his girlfriend, Ginny (Amy Steel), return to camp do they uncover the identity of their stalker — none other than Jason (Warrington Gillette) himself, alive but grotesquely deformed as a result of his childhood drowning. Flashbacks chronicle Jason's behind-the-scenes activities in the first film (perhaps explaining how his mother was able to throw the dead bodies of muscular youths through windows with such apparent ease). The young couple's only hope to defeat the fiend lies in psych major Ginny's insights in Jason's mental state.

4.0 out of 5 stars Friday The 13th Double Feature April 30, 2008
Format:DVD
Four stars for the movies themselves, but beware, you get NO extras on this at all! On the back of the case, it says there are theatrical trailers for each film but there aren't when you put the disc (which, by the way, there is only one disc, not two) into the player. No biggie to me, I got this for 10 bucks and can easily watch the trailers on YouTube but it's still annoying when they say something is included and it's not! Buyer beware, but not bad for those who want to replace their worn out VHS copies of these movies as I did :)

Here we have the best two films in the legendary Friday the 13th series. One of the things that really make these movies work well is the scenes where the stalker lurks, stalks, and watches before he or she makes a kill. That plays on the juvenile fear that we all carry in our heads that there is something out there watching you. When you were a kid, your parents always used to tell you to be a good little boy or girl because Santa, The Easter Bunny, or God is watching. If you are bad you will not get a present or you will not go to heaven. The constant here of course is the idea of something watching you, and if you get out of line, there is a consequence. Perhaps, that is the best theme of all that is played out in these early Friday installments.

- Friday the 13th (1980) -

In 1957 a young boy drowns in Crystal Lake. In 1958 two young camp counselors are murdered by an unseen assassin. Years later Steve Christy is preparing Camp Crystal Lake for re-opening despite warnings of the superstitious locals of the "death curse." It seems that as a result of the camp's unexplainable dark history the locals suffer from a sort of mass hysteria by attributing unsolved crimes to some sort of ghost story. These new people should have listened to the warnings to stay away from the place the locals call "Camp Blood," because on Friday the 13th 1980, there is a string of horrifying and grizzly murders ending in the beginning of an urban legend come to life.

- Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981) -

Five years after the events of the original film, Paul and Ginny are running a summer camp counselor training facility. This place is not exactly at Camp Crystal Lake, but it is on the same like, adjacent to the old (not condemned) murder site.

1.0 out of 5 stars You've got to be kidding? August 23, 2007
Format:DVD
I can't believe Paramount has the you-know-what to release these two classics in their "butchered" versions again. What the hell is it with them already? Die hard Friday the 13th fans are ready to open their wallets for an "uncut" pressing of these films. What's the matter, Paramount? Are you not feeling well?

If it weren't for the fact that they control Star Trek, I'd have boycotted them a long time ago.

Thankfully, I own the PAL release of the first movie which was distributed by Warner. It's great. Go and get yourself a copy and while you're at it, get a multi-region player as well so you can watch the DVD.

Let me go before I say something I'll regret.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor releases of the same R-rated version again July 30, 2007
Format:DVD
Don't support Paramount and buy this. It's the same incomplete heavily censored versions of these movies with little-to-no extras and little-to-no effort put into it. In the age of Director's Cuts & Unrated everything Paramount still refuses to release these movies in their entirety when the fans have been begging for it for nearly 30 years. Warner Brothers has been putting out uncut releases of Part 1 overseas for decades, so we know that footage is out there and it's been mastered--sound, score, everything in tact. ...No idea why Paramount still insists on giving us the version with so much of Tom Savini's awesome work removed. The ridiculous thing is R-rated movies nowadays have 10 times the amount of gratuitous violence, even glorified violence at times. Yet these movies are actually scary; the violence isn't there to amuse you or be glorified, it's meant to scare you and upset you and make you think. Instead we get this choppy, quit-cut garbage that comes off as being cheesy and not packing the punch it builds up to. Paramount has never done this series justice with any of their releases. They just keep repackaging the same stuff, and we're sick of buying it just because we love the work behind it. BOYCOTT until Paramount starts to give a damn that they own the rights to one of the biggest horror series's of all time and give the fans something worth-while.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Guilty Pleasure August 29, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Friday the 13th franchise remains one of the defining film series of the slasher flic genre. As a child I found the concept fascinating, but I wasn't allowed to watch the films. An indestructible, yet not undefeatable killer, Jason Vorhees was the archetype for film killers. An undead murderer with a simple story, an iconic mask which he nearly always removed at some point, and ridiculously risk-taking young victims just looking for a good time, this was almost a sub-category of its own.

As a film series, the story of Jason progressed, and had it's share of ridiculous moments. The low budget FX often take away from the shock value for modern audiences, and the first entry is mired down in hokey dialogue and poor acting, at least in the beginning. However, the best chapters in Jason's story are the first few. The original film finds it's own stride, and has an ending on a par with Psycho. The second chapter, which really gives Jason his due, sets up an even more sinister side of the character. Despite the fact that the iconic hockey mask doesn't get introduced until Friday the 13th part 3, these are the crucial introduction to a character who still sells Halloween masks. As a fan, I love this series, both as a horror enthusiast and as a nostalgia trip. I think the earliest chapters are the best, since the last few installments just go way over the top-ending with Jason in space AFTER supposedly being sent to hell.

Still, if you love horror, know the franchise, or just want to see what does and doesn't work in a serial killer movie, it's worth your time, especially for the first few films. They are a walk down memory lane, and a guilty pleasure.
