His Name Was Jason: French Releases

Inevitably, all films in the Friday the 13th franchise will be released on Blu-Ray high-definition discs. Currently, you can only purchase Friday the 13th (1980), Friday the 13th Part 2, Friday the 13th Part 3, Freddy vs Jason and Friday the 13th (2009) on Blu-Ray disc. Would you ever think that the 2009 documentary on the series, His Name Was Jason, would be available on Blu-Ray?

Over at Amazon.fr, there is a listing for the doco complete with Blu-Ray cover art. The listing does not imply anything is different from the U.S. DVD release. The disc went up for sale late Summer last year, so does this imply that fans in the United States can plan on seeing the series retrospective on Blu-Ray disc in the near future? Time will only tell. The questions is, would it really matter to purchase His Name Was Jason in high definition?

Also coming up for sale in France this July is the inclusion of the Friday the 13th documentary on a combo disc. It is a very unusual pairing of His Name Was Jason with three actual horror films. Not documentaries? Oh well, at least the documentary is getting another release. To purchase this DVD combo release, visit the French Amazon website.
