Scream Factory Announces New 12 Film Friday The 13th Home Video Box Set With Blu-Ray, 4K, And Real 3D!

It’s been a long time coming, but we can finally let the cat out of the bag and report that Scream Factory is indeed releasing a brand new twelve film box set of the Friday The 13th movie franchise. Scream Factory has been working on the set for the better part of a year thus far and experienced some delays due to the Covid 19 outbreak. News of this new set leaked a few months ago as word from some of the alumni who are part of the new features let it be known something new is in the works. No problem, as this set is packed with brand new interviews, commentary, artwork, and yes, 4K transfers!

Not only are there 4K transfers for some of the films, but Scream Factory has completed a Real 3D transfer for Friday The 13th Part 3! From what I am told, it looks great and this should give fans a presentation that is worthy of the theatrical release and show what the filmmakers intended audiences to see almost forty years ago. Say good bye to the red and blue glasses!

There is a brand new booklet included in the set that chronicles the films of the franchise, written by Michael Gingold. He has been writing about the horror genre for years and has been involved in covering the Friday The 13th films during their theatrical releases, so he is very knowledgeable of the franchise and does an excellent job discussing the films throughout the years.

There will be new artwork and poster for the box set as well. Rejoice Friday The 13th fans, this is the comprehensive set you have been waiting for! Read on for the official release from Scream Factory below and let us know know what you think of the set.
