Portuguese VHS Home Video Covers Offer Another New Look At Friday The 13th

Part of the fun of being a fan of a particular film franchise is being able to dig up old information and advertising about the films from decades past that can sometimes rekindle enthusiasm of one's fandom. One of the great hobbies within the Friday community is locating old home video formats from around the world to see how different countries represented the film franchise.

One of our long time readers "TheCollector" recently sent us some great photos of the Portuguese home video releases of the first eight Friday The 13th films!

All of the VHS covers have the main title listed as "Sexta-Feira 13", which translated to English is "Friday 13". For Friday The 13th: A New Beginning, the subtitle on the box cover reads "Um Novo Começo", for which the English translation goes perfectly to "A New Beginning". Finally, the subtitle for Friday The 13th Part 7: The New Blood reads "A Matança Continua" which translates in English to "The Killing Continues". That is a little bit different than 'The New Blood".

We hope everyone enjoys seeing these Portuguese video releases from decades past.
