His Name was Jason on DVD February 3rd!

His Name Was Jason on DVD!What I never understood about ’80s pop culture was the focus on Freddy Krueger. Don’t get me wrong; I love Nightmare, but there’s just something really wrong about having footy pajamas featuring a child killer on them. In comparison, I don’t think Jason Voorhees got the same kind of over-exposure he deserved. Until now…

The biggest and most comprehensive look at the hockey masked killer of teens and camp counselors was created for Anchor Bay Home Entertainment, who just announced the official date and some release details. The 3-disc “Splatter Edition” will show up in stores on February 3rd complete with four hours of special features (three of those hours may be of our own Uncle Creepy)!

Starz will broadcast the premiere of the documentary on February 13th, 2009 – in celebration of the infamous date and its most famous posterboy. And, as we told you before, the documentary will have its world premiere Friday, November 14, at the 31st Starz Denver Festival during The Watching Hour, the festival’s midnight film series. Ari Lehman, the first Jason, and other special guests will be in attendance.
