It's not quite as epic as Never Sleep Again, but - the source material also didn't have as much oomph, either. There was just more to talk about with NoES vs. F13th - in spite of the latter having more films. They really were producing these assembly-line-style at one point, and catching up with the actors and a bit with the director really tells the most interesting bits pretty quickly. There just wasn't a lot of nuance to discuss.

It's still far beyond anything a studio would ever give us - and I can't imagine a better job being able to be done, either for CLM or NSA. Both excellent companion pieces to each other - though I'd watch CLM first and then NSA, because NSA is just that much more solid.
If you have to whip out a microscope to decide if you like a Blu-ray or not, you are missing the point.

Not amazing, but pretty damn entertaining.

Some of the flaws:

Not as juicy as the book.

Too many cast and crew members missing. Jason Goes to Hell and Freddy vs. Jason especially.

No Never Sleep Again style character introductions.

Watching this on youtube. Will definitely pick up the disk when I have funds.

Little to much plot summary for some of the films though, with little production details.

Considering, it's almost a 7 hour documentary, it would have been tough getting any juicer or into other aspects of the movies without, most likely, doubling the length.
"Does the Blu-ray version of '.......' look better than it's DVD version?"

I'm so sick of this question. 99% of Blu-rays look better than their DVD counterpart. Period.

You got the standard version with the bonus disc?

Yeah, I hate to say it, but if you've read the book there's not much that's new here.

I mean, it was clearly a labour of love, and the folks involved did a great job and should have their efforts applauded, but as a guy who absolutely tore through that big, beautiful book...the film left me a bit cold.

George Lucas didn't rape anyone's childhood but he did ruin Star Wars.

There's a digital version that contains more images and interviews than the hardcover book. I own the hardcover - it's very nice, but a word of warning - the first one I received a few years ago fell apart the first time I opened it up to read (it was a gift bought from Amazon). Because it was purchased more than 30 days earlier Amazon wouldn't replace it and neither would the book manufacturer. It's a heavy book and was likely damaged due to Amazon's lousy packaging. It looked fine but upon opening it the spine was obviously damaged, with many of the pages coming out when opened.

I will be ordering from Barnes And Noble, better to spend a little extra and get it in good condition. Off to order and I might get the digital version too.

Currently watching Never Sleep Again. Man, is Jeff Katz insufferable.
Most desired Blu-rays: Far too many to name.

Thanks for mentioning this, didn't realize there was a digital edition. Just downloaded a sample first chapter of the enhanced edition, may have to purchase this!

Yeah, be careful that you get the right one - they have a text only one, and then an "enhanced" one for a few bucks more with all the pics. I was halfway through the text version when I realized that they had two different ones...

Would this be a worthwhile buy if I'm really only a fan of the original film??
