Exclusive: Friday the 13th 3-D on Blu-ray?

Friday the 13th 3D on BLu-ray?We just got a very cool scoop from a spy who got to chat with Friday the 13th 3-D supervisor Martin Sadoff recently. He revealed to us that he’s in the process of trying to get the film released onto Blu-ray in its original 3-D format!

“Blu-ray 3-D is happening right now,” Sadoff told us. “It’s a new medium. There are many many major players in home television involved right now. I have seen a lot of home 3-D, and in my opinion it equals the theatrical experience, if not better.”

Sadoff also confirmed that a theatrical re-release has been discussed by the studio. “About 2 years ago, Paramount Pictures called me up that they wanted to do a D-Cinema release of Friday the 13th in 3-D,” he revealed. ”We met with the new Viacom management and went back and forth and they said ‘Well, the movie’s really old and people don’t remember it.’ But now that they’re remaking it, I hope there will be new interest.”

We’ll be keeping tabs on how this one develops, of course. Sure, Friday the 13th 3-D isn’t exactly the pinnacle of the series or 3-D technology, but the nostalgia value alone makes up for it, don’t ya think?

  1. ”We met with the new Viacom management and went back and forth and they said ‘Well, the movie’s really old and people don’t remember it.’

    (Scoffs). Bullshit…I watched this one again about three months ago.

    I would buy the entire series on Blu-Ray, if I had a player. Maybe someday. Prices on those units are plummeting.

  2. It may not be the best, but its far from the worst. id pay to see it in theatres, and id definitely pick it up on blu. they should release this on a triple bill with amityville 3D and Jaws 3D.
