Friday the 13th Season 1 (R1) in September
Paramount Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Friday the 13th The Series: The First Season on 23rd September 2008. Although the title would suggest otherwise, this series that ran between 1987 and 1990 has absolutely nothing to do with the Friday the 13th films. The show follows the exploits of two distant cousins who inherit the strange “Curious Goods” antiques shop, soon discovering their deceased uncle paid the ultimate price for the hexed items in the store: his soul was claimed by Satan. In each episode they are joined by an eccentric antiques dealer to track down and retrieve cursed objects before the sold items manifests its evil powers.
All 26 episodes from the first season are spread across six-discs presented in Full Screen with English Mono audio. The only extras are the original network launch promos and a sales presentation.
