The box set comes in an outer slipcase cover holding four seperate slim-style Dvd cases containing to discs each.
The backs of the cases claim that parts 3, 6, 7 and 8 have commentary tracks, but when you play them you find out that's not so.
Part 1 has a 20 odd minute making of and a commentary. Parts 1 - 6 all have a Trailer...and that's it, no more extras.

The Dvd's seem to be re-packaged older discs. Part 1 is an older Warner Bros Dvd. 2, 3 and 4 are silver discs with text. And 5 - 8 have artwork that match each other.

The picture quality on the films looks good and the sound clear. Part 7 is in 5.1. Why none of the others are is a bit strange.

So it's not the same as the U.S. release like others have stated.

I would recommend the set if, like me, you don't already own any of the previous Dvd's, but if you were looking for something more then forget it.

Just got this box set. Very odd, the back of the DVD parts 3, 6, 7 and 8 say they have commentary tracks, but they don't!?
Part 1 has a short making of, but nothing we haven't seen before.
While I will still keep as I didn't have them before, this is a real shame as the U.S. box set (although only having slightly more) seemed far more exciting.
Paramount should be ashamed of themselves for releasing such a badly put together box set. If you dint even check that the writing on the back of the box is correct, then you don't care about your customers.

Format: DVD
Friday the 13th - Despite warnings by the superstitious locals of a "Death Curse" Steve Christy hires a group of young people to help him re-open Camp Crystal Lake. Camp Blood is the name given to the camp by local residents as a result of the camp's dark history of tragedy and murder. The innocent roam the area while being stalked by a dark figure in the shadows, and are murdered one by one by an unseen assassin. This is the original horror classic introducing Jason Vorhees with it's famous shock ending and spawning an endless amount of sequels, many of which are featured in this boxset. This is definitely the best in the series.

Friday the 13th Part 2 - In the second film, it is retroactively revealed that Jason has actually been living as a hermit in the woods next to the camp for several decades. Having watched his mother's demise from afar, Jason tracks down the heroine of the first film and resumes his mother's work, hacking and slashing through numerous other victims at the nearby camp. This is not a bad sequel but lacks the black comedy that make some of the later films so good.

Friday the 13th Part 3 - In the third installment, Jason acquired his trademark hockey mask. In this entry, Jason stalks a group of teenagers and a motorcycle gang who are spending time at a farmhouse near a lake. A pretty decent sequel but also quite forgettable. Not one of the strongest films in the series.

Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter - The fourth installment continues on from Part 3 as police and paramedics are busy cleaning up the mess Jason Voorhees left at Higgins Haven, including the defeated hockey-masked killer himself. Once delivered to the morgue, Jason rises again and makes his way back to Crystal Lake. A good end to the first part of this movie saga.

This box set is terrible. Now hold your axe's I'm not talking about the films, I love Friday the 13th,but I'm specifically talking about the extras. A whole host of director commentaires and extrs from each movie is missing, even though it's actually printed on the back of each dvd. American's got it all, we Europeans get nada. So if you want the full package get this box set in region 1. But why oh why would Paramount do this to such a loyal fanbase is beyond my thinking. Ok so that valid rant over lets talk about the films themselves. And this is what I am solely basing my 3 star rating on.

Even though there have been 12 Friday's including the remake, this boxset only contains the first 8 films. Only because these are owned by Paramount. Anyway as any Friday fan will tell you it's all really about the 80s and these films.

The original Friday the 13th is a classic slasher. Yes even by 1980 it wasn't so original, but it still influenced literaly hundreds of cheap rip offs. The acting is fairly good, loads of tense moments and some gore thrown in. It also helps when the characters are actually likeable, something that Friday would vacate from as the series got on.

Though Part 2 doesn't bring much to the table, this is a good sequel. Here we have Jason as an adult and the sack over the head. How ironic that Jason had much more of an presence with the sack than the famed hockey mask. There are some wild stand out kills here, and the ending should make a few of you jump.

The third movie is available on some dvds as 3D, as was originally released. This should fail on paper as again we have teenagers going to the camp. But guess what it doesnt! Again this is due to two factors- likeable characters and Richard Brooker as Jason is just great.

I love Jason, as a character generally, and I bought this box set a long time ago and now I feel the need to share my thoughts on it.
The first Friday the 13th as it stands is true horror material standing the test of time, with an inclusion on the DVD of a rather interesting Documentary about the first blockbuster released, to the 7 sequels that continued it. The movies are set around the infamous Camp Crystal Lake that's based on Jason, a younger boy drowned many years ago, whilst the councillor's monitoring the area were too busy having sex and what not; years later he would have his revenge on anyone who came to the camp, as there was always one person who knew the myth of the person who killed his mother and the drowning of poor Jason Voorhees.
It's very surreal I think, but this enhances the mood to it. There are some movies that are absurd in some of the instalments, but to be honest that's why I really enjoyed the movies, the realism or coherence didn't have to be the essential point to the plot - The killings, The characters and Jason are all you need to evaluate the movies now nostalgic value. My recommendations go to those who enjoy horror, Jason or bizarre movies.
