‘Friday The 13th: The Final Chapter’ getting Blu-Ray steelbook

‘Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter’ is the next film in the franchise to get the Blu-Ray steelbook treatment from Paramount following the steelbook release of Friday the 13th Part III and the ‘Friday the 13th’ 8 movie limited edition steelbook set.

This new LIMITED EDITION Blu-ray steelbook celebrates the iconic fourth installment in the FRIDAY THE 13TH franchise, remastered in 2020 from original film elements. Like the previous releases this new Steelbook release features a pre-existing disc housed inside of new packaging, so there’s nothing new here aside from the Steelbook packaging.

Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter is  directed by Joseph Zito, produced by Frank Mancuso Jr., and starring Kimberly Beck, Corey Feldman, Crispin Glover, and Peter Barton. It is the fourth installment in the Friday the 13th franchise. Picking up immediately after the events of Part III, the plot follows a presumed-dead Jason Voorhees (played by Ted White, who sadly passed away recently) who escapes from the morgue and returns to Crystal Lake to continue his killing spree. The film marks the debut of the character Tommy Jarvis (Feldman), who would make further appearances in two sequels and related media, establishing him as Jason’s archenemy.

Much like Part III, the film was originally supposed to be the final installment in the series. Mancuso Jr. wanted to conclude the series as he felt no one respected him for his producing work on it regardless of how much the films earned at the box office, while also wanting to work on other projects. Paramount Pictures supported the decision, as they were aware of the declining popularity of slasher films at the time of its release. As a result, the film was marketed as “The Final Chapter” to ensure it as such. Make-up artist Tom Savini, who worked on the first film, returned because he wanted to help kill off Jason, whom he helped create.

The set is due for release January 10th 2023.
