Fright At Home: September 10th’s DVD & Blu-ray Releases!

FAH1
It’s Tuesday, so it’s time for the weekly rundown of what’s hitting stores with Fright At Home! This week may be one of the most important and jam packed as it’s filled with must-own cult obscurities & horror classics alike that deserve a spot in your collection. For better or worse, FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION Blu-ray set is finally out. It’s been met with quite a bit of controversy for many reasons (no Blu-ray 3D for FRIDAY THE 13TH PART III: 3D, no unrated cut for JASON GOES TO HELL: THE FINAL FRIDAY, missing extras, etc.), but for those just happy to just have the entire franchise collected in HD and housed all in one set, then this is for you. For those who feel burned once again by Paramount/Warner Bros, have no fear because the definitive documentary CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES: THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF FRIDAY THE 13TH is here to soothe your woes. Read on below to see what else this week has to offer; I have a feeling it’s a real wallet drainer!

FAH11
Synopsis:
For more than thirty years, FRIDAY THE 13TH has proven to be as unstoppable at the box office as its hockey-masked villain Jason Voorhees, having spawned twelve feature films (and counting!), a syndicated television series and an extensive line of books, merchandise and collectibles. For its creators, FRIDAY THE 13TH has been anything but “bad luck,” generating nearly $600 million in domestic box office receipts and turning an unstoppable, machete-wielding madman into a true pop-culture icon. Inspired by the critically-acclaimed book, CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES: THE COMPLETE HISTORY OF FRIDAY THE 13TH takes viewers behind the mask on an epic journey into the making of the landmark horror franchise — from its humble beginnings in 1980 at a New Jersey summer camp to the blockbuster release of its 2009 “reboot.” Combining hundreds of rare and never-before-seen photographs, film clips, outtakes, archival documents, conceptual art and behind-the-scenes footage, and featuring interviews with more than 150 cast and crew members spanning all twelve films and the television series, CRYSTAL LAKE MEMORIES is the ultimate tribute to one of horror’s most iconic and enduring franchises.
