Friday the 13th

 (1980)

Friday the 13th Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

Terror and suspense abound in this 24-hour nightmare of blood. Camp Crystal Lake has been shuttered for over 20 years due to several vicious and unsolved murders. The camp's new owner and seven young counselors are readying the property for re-opening despite warnings of a "death curse" by local residents. The curse proves true on Friday the 13th as one by one each of the counselors is stalked by a violent killer. This film is widely acclaimed for its horrifying and creative murder sequences.

For more about Friday the 13th and the Friday the 13th Blu-ray release, see Friday the 13th Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Director: Sean S. Cunningham
Writers: Ron Kurz, Victor Miller, Sean S. Cunningham

Friday the 13th Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Friday the 13th sets up camp on Blu-ray with a well-done 1080p, 1.78:1-framed transfer. This is a rough-looking film in many spots, and the opening sequence, in particular, isn't all that pretty, but it looks good considering the source. It's excessively grainy and rather dark, but improved clarity and resolution over previous releases is immediately noted. However, once the film gets past the opening credits, it opens up to a sharper, more colorful, and more richly detailed presentation, revealing plenty of impressive visuals. The opening shots of Annie hiking to the camp are well done; the exterior shots of the town and the interior of the store both look great. The film truly shines in these bright, outdoor, daylight sequences; colors are bright, but not overly so, and natural; the greens of the grass, the coarse, gray pavement of the streets, and the bright red color seen on several vehicles all come together for a look that is about as close to eye candy as one can get from a now-vintage and low budget horror picture. Even background details remain solid; clumps of trees and dense foliage never look like green globs, but rather appear natural and distinct, even at a distance. As the film moves along and day turns to a rainy, cold night, the dark, dreary, foreboding look seen in the opening moments of the film returns, but the transfer remains impressive. Blacks are fairly noisy, maybe a bit crushed, but they remain a deep black rather than a shade of gray. The print exhibits a few speckles here and there, but the source is in very good shape otherwise. Longtime fans of the film should be ecstatic with this presentation. Newcomers need be aware that the film is grainy, and that the grain is retained to nice effect throughout, and that Paramount has definitely delivered on this release.


Friday the 13th Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Friday the 13th slashes onto Blu-ray with a Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack in addition to a monaural presentation. This is a nice audio presentation in the context of the source. It is somewhat front-heavy but also rich and full sounding; the score heard over the opening credits is particularly impressive, playing as lifelike and intense, with a very fine sense of hearing a live performance. Throughout the film, sound effects and dialogue are strong, maybe sounding a bit unnatural, but its more due to the source rather than the soundtrack on the disc. Chapter six offers up the sounds of an impending storm, though it comes across as more of a hiss rather than a well defined, natural sounding weather maker, but again, it's due more to the limitations of the original sound mix rather than the Blu-ray soundtrack presentation. Friday the 13th could have arguably benefited from a remix to incorporate the back channels and subwoofer more, but as always, it's better to stick as closely to the original presentation as possible. This lossless track allows room for the track to breathe a bit, spread out across the front, and offer more in the way of fidelity and clarity. It beats the mono soundtrack hands-down without becoming an entirely different animal.
