Friday the 13th will be celebrating it’s 40th anniversary this may.
Sadly no new movies under the Friday the 13th umbrella can be made until the current legal situation is resolved, however that doesn’t mean Paramount isn’t celebrating the 40th anniversary of this iconic slasher franchise starter.
Paramount is releasing the original film on 40th Anniversary Limited Edition Steelbook Blu-ray + Digital, with Amazon US currently listing a May 5, 2020 release date.
Housed inside of the Steelbook packaging, which features Friday the 13th‘s classic poster art on front, will be the previously released Blu-ray disc of the Uncut version.
With the addition of unrated footage, and insightful special features, plunge deeper into the film that spawned eleven sequels and the genre’s unstoppable bad guy, Jason Voorhees.
A new owner and several young counsellors gather to reopen Camp Crystal Lake, where a young boy drowned and several vicious murders occurred years earlier. They’ve ignored locals’ warnings that the place has a death curse… and one by one they find out how unlucky Friday the 13th can be as they are stalked by a violent killer.
There is currently no UK release date for this latest Friday the 13th release – however this item does ship to the UK and is available to order on Amazon now.
