Friday the 13th Special Edition

Good news for our U.K. readers. Paramount has released a special edition version of the original Friday the 13th! Sure, it’s no “Citizen Kane”, but the original Friday the 13th is a surprisingly effective scare-fest featuring some great “jump” scenes and amazing make-up effects. Although it’s effectiveness has been a bit dulled through age and numerous sequels, it’s still a fun movie.Paramount has re-released the film as a Region 2 Special Edition DVD. It includes the uncut version of the film (previously available only on Japanese Laserdisc and VCD), commentary from Producer/Director Sean Cunningham and various cast members, and a “Making of” Featurette.Now if they’d only release this in Region 1 so folks on my side of the pond could enjoy it…
