TUESDAY, JUNE 29, 2004 'Friday the 13th' box set; new 'Resident Evil,' 'Species' SEs By Peter M. Bracke Jason Lives - 2:00pm He's got a face only a mother could love and he wields one very mean machete. His name is Jason Voorhees, and he's the antithesis of Santa Claus: if he finds out you've been naughty instead of nice, he won't just pass over your house for presents, he grab the fireplace poker, stab you twenty times and stomp on your remains. And that's just for starters. Now, he's finally getting a DVD big enough to hold him. Ready to slash its way to stores in time for Halloween, Friday the 13th: From Crystal Lake to Manhattan - The Ultimate Edition DVD Collection will arrive on October 5th from Paramount Home Entertainment. While fans undoubtedly hoped for uncut, bloodier versions of all eight of the Paramount flicks, the set will include the R-rated cuts of each film (all in anamorphic widescreen, with parts 1 to 5 in Dolby mono, 6 and 8 in 2.0 surround, and only 7 in full blown 5.1) spread two pics apiece across four dual-layer discs. Extras include audio commentaries on Parts 3, 6, 7 and 8, plus the "Killer Extras" bonus disc with five featurettes, trailers for all of the flicks and deleted scenes and censored footage. Paramount has set no retail price, but suggested list will be around $59.95.
