Lacklustre F13th UK Reissues

Friday the 13th Parts 2-8 get DVD re-releases in the UK on Monday 9 February with cover art apparently inspired by The Texas Chainsaw 2: The Gruesome Edition and various Saw movies before it.

Parts 2 and 3 (which are also released on Blu-Ray) inherit the special features from the new region 1 editions, except that Part 3 lacks the option to watch the film in 3D, while the rest are bare-bones.

The rights for Part 1 presumably remain with Warner in the UK, who long ago released the movie uncut with some of the special features found on the new R1 edition.

All in all, it’s a bit pointless, really, especially considering that the Parts 1-8 Box Set was only released in the UK a few months ago and can be had for around £16 online, where these individual releases will be retailing for around £6 each.

  1. Seriously? You only pay 6 pounds for a DVD?

    That’s cool.

  2. £6 when it’s in the bargain bin, you’re looking at £12-16 new

  3. £6 is the online price of the new reissues. Christian’s right about the high street, where you could easily pay double that.

  4. Cool to know that 2 and 3 came out on Blu-Ray over there. I wonder why they weren’t released in the US…

    I’d much rather see Part 2 or Part 3 on Blu-Ray than the original. Maybe eventually…

  5. THOSE COVERS ARE HORRIBLE ESPECIALY THE FINAL CHAPTER , HAHA YEA PLEASE PUT THE CORKSCREW ON THE US RELEASE GOOD GOD THOSE ARE THE STUPIDEST THINGS IVE EVR SEEN, I LOOK FWD TO THE NEXT RE-RELEASE IN THE US I HEAR PARTS 4-6 ARE IN JUNE, I HOPE WE GET BETTER COVERS THEN THESE LAME ONES IM SORRY FOR MY BRITISH GOREHOUNDS THAT HAVE TO SETTLE FOR THIS JUNK.

  6. I have one question,are these or the US versions going to be UNCUT?

  7. at least the reg 3 part 3 has special features unlike the reg 1
