    Well, it's already become evident that this coming February is going to be packed with FRIDAY THE 13TH related content, what's not too sure yet is the future of the series in HD. The first film has been announced for Blu-ray treatment, but even though the second and third are coming to new special edition DVDs, the respective Blu-rays have not yet been announced. With that in mind, which Blu-rays would you buy should the series be all upgraded to HD?

    Multiple answers are accepted for this poll, so choose wisely! If you select either of the "All of them" answers, be sure to select each individual film as well just to make it representative.

    All the Paramount ones, except 8, but if they were packaged together I would buy all the Paramount F13s no problem.

    All of them. I love every single one of them. Even Part 8 and the New Line films. Jason is just so engraved in my childhood that I can forgive the many shortcomings of Jason Takes Manhattan (Vancouver for the last 20 minutes of the runtime).

    I think the release of the first one on BD will please lots of fans. And I think it'll have more to do with the fact that this will be the uncut version than it being in HD.

    If there's a Paramount box set, that'd be cool...but I'm not sure I'll be able to wait. I'm planning on 1-6, most likely.

    Parts I & IV. And, in another life, the uncut version of part VII.

    I'd get them all, but over a long course of time, during sales and such. Parts 1, 4 and 6 would be immediate buys.

    When I get into Blu Ray I'll buy them all. Of course by the time I can afford to go Blu, there will be another release of these movies.

    In a boxset, I'd probably buy them all. Forced to buy them seperately, 2, 4, 6, and X.

    For sure I would buy 1,4,and 6. If 2,and 7 are uncut I'd buy them as well. I'd probably buy them all if the price was right.

    I'd only get the Paramount films. I only really like parts 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6 but I'd still get part 3 (3 in 3-D, it's a nice novelty) and 7 and 8 (they're of SOME value, how minimal it may be.) And, considering how good 7 and 8 look on DVD, I can only imagine how amazing they'll look on blu-ray.

    However, I can't even sit through anything past part 8. (Part 8 was bad enough.) So, no for me on the New Line films.

    Blu-Ray, IMO will become the next Laserdisc. So, I'm perfectly happy with SD until the next advancement in format technology comes around.

    I'm happy with the standard def releases...although, I wouldn't mind having the first six on Blu. I also, wouldn't mind having Jason X, I like the look of that film. Yes, really! Haha!

    Jason Takes Manhattan, Part III, and The New Blood would be my highest priority of these. If Paramount were to release an 8-disc Blu Ray set and it actually turned out the films finally looked really good (and sounded better too, I can't stress how important stereo or 5.1 are/would be on the first 5 'mono' films!) - I'd actually buy a better TV and a blu-ray player. That and Argento's Opera, Phenomena, and Tenebre on Blu-Ray (all with really superior video quality and audio if possible) would get me to buy into the BR phenomenon. Just Friday parts 1 & 2 would be a no-dice deal.

    I have a feeling Wes may be right, but my plan with blu-ray is to upgrade certain films I feel are classics worth upgrading: Romero's dead films, The Beyond, Maniac, The Nightmare on Elm Street Series, Halloween I, II, and maybe IV, and yes the Friday the 13th films. I'm sure I have others on that list but I can't think of them now.
