Three New Friday the 13th Deluxe Editions and The Cell 2
Horror fans rejoice as Paramount Home Entertainment has unleashed a quadruple threat that is bound to please even the most jaded horror fan.
First up are the next three titles in the Friday the 13th Deluxe Edition Series. “Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter”, “Friday the 13th Part VA New Beginning”, and “Friday the 13th Part 6 Jason Lives” have arrived. Like the previous three Deluxe editions, each set is loaded with extras brimming from deleted scenes, alternate endings, bonus features, and so much more. The fantastic visual and auditory quality of the film allows viewers to experience all the gore and terror that the series has become famous for. I really enjoyed the ongoing series that looks at the Lost Tales from Camp Blood.
While savaged by most critics, the series has endured as perhaps the most popular maniac killer series ever created. The plot is thin and the acting is nothing special, but the goal of the series is to scare, and thanks to the brilliant makeup FX the series never lets up in its body count.
Even the most casual fans will love to see the films with all the bonus materials as honestly, they alone are worth the price of the features.
“The Cell 2”The film follows up from the original and tells the story of a telepath (Tessie Santiago), who is trying to locate a killer, who has eluded authorities. In a twist, the telepath was once a captive of her target and he has developed a way to shield his identity from her visions. As things unfold, all is not as it seems as the hunter soon becomes the hunted in a deadly game of cat and mouse.
The visuals of the film are lacking and come across more as something one would expect to see late night on the Sci Fi Channel. The cast does the best of what they can with the material which sadly does no better than an average movie of the week.
The picture and sound quality are sharp.
