40th Anniversary Blu-ray Steelbook for Friday the 13th Arrives in May

One of the most iconic horror films of all time, Friday the 13th, turns 40. To celebrate four decades of fear, Paramount Home Entertainment is releasing a 40th Anniversary Blu-ray Steelbook.

Our first trip to Camp Crystal Lake was on May 9, 1980. Friday the 13th saw a group of counselors, attempting to re-open the camp after a boy drowned. Unfortunately for them, the vengeful spirit Jason Voorhees would have none of that. As you could probably guess, there was a lot of blood shed by the hockey mask-clad killer. The original film starred Betsy Palmer, Adrienne King, and Kevin Bacon.

The Friday the 13th 40th Anniversary Blu-ray Steelbook will release on May 5, 2020. This edition will feature artwork from the original poster, the uncut, unrated version of the film, a digital copy of the original movie, and several bonus features.
