Jason is slashing his way back to Blu-ray with Warner Home Video announcing an extended cut of the horror remake 'Friday the 13th' due this June.

The latest '80s slasher classic to receive the remake treatment, the retooled 'Friday the 13th' scared up a record-setting $40 million in its opening weekend.

The Michael Bay-produced update will make its way to Blu-ray on June 16, day-and-date with the standard DVD.

Featuring a new "Killer Cut" of the film with footage not seen in theaters plus the R-rated theatrical cut (accessible via seamless branching), tech specs will see a BD-50 dual-layer disc with 1080p video and Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround audio.

Extras include the "Explore the Rebirth of Jason Voorhees" featurette and additional "slashed" scenes.

Exclusive to the Bu-ray is the "Terror Trivia" factoid track, the "Hacking Back/Slashing Forward" and "The 7 Best Kills" featurettes, and BD-Live connectivity.

Also included on a second disc is a Digital Copy of both the extended and rated versions of the film, compatible with PCs and iTunes.

Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $35.98.
