Since Crystal Lake reluctantly re-opened its gates way back in 1980 true fans have long been waiting for an all inclusive set, and fortunately for all the Friday franchise’s happy campers, Friday the 13th: The Ultimate Collection: Limited Edition serves up all previous special features and slaughter in a single box.
Hockey masks were never the same after Jason emerged – along with his now iconic name – and while these films may be some of the best campy material around, their old-school authenticity and kitschy charm will far outlast their seemingly indestructible slasher.
Unfortunately for new special feature seekers the single box accumulation is half the draw; aside from the limited to 50,000 box-sets made enticement and the Junior Jason hockey mask, and while trinkets and 3D glasses are a welcome addition, they may indeed not be enough to coax some campers out of the woods.
The other half of the sets draw is the creative packaging itself, utilizing an 8-page hardback book as both a collectable incentive and the sleeves for all the discs. The book displays not only film posters from all eight films, but also individual film statistics and trivia.
So whether you love Jason up close and personal or hidden in the trees, or you’re just looking for an ultimate set with all-in-one ease, Friday the 13th: The Ultimate Collection: Limited Edition may leave some with gain, some in pain and others waiting for Jason’s trademark blood red to run Blu.
