Warner Home Video has unveiled further specs for 'Friday the 13th,' which will slash its way to Blu-ray this June with even more bloody BD-Live-exclusive content.
Though the studio recently confirmed an already-impressive gaggle of bonus features for the June 16 Blu-ray release, they've now issued a press release that promises even more BD-Live content.
As previously reported, Jason's latest exploits will receive the BD-50 dual-layer treatment with 1080p/VC-1 video (2.39:1) and English Dolby TrueHD 5.1 Surround track. The disc will contain both the R-rated and never-before-seen "Killer Cut" versions of the film available via seamless branching.
Extras include the "Explore the Rebirth of Jason Voorhees" featurette and additional "slashed" scenes, as well as Blu-ray exclusives including a "Terror Trivia" picture-in-picture track with pop-up trivia, and two additional featurettes ("Hacking Back/Slashing Forward," "The 7 Best Kills").
Just-announced BD-Live content includes "My Commentary" function to record your own track and share it with other 'Friday' fans, the ability to join in a "Live Community Screening," and a downloadable sneak peek at the upcoming Blu-ray release of 'Trick 'r Treat.'
Finally, included on a second disc will be 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.
