Part 3 Japanese Laserdisc Cover and Insert

Posted 19 Oct 2009 in Merchandise

I have posted about the Japanese Laserdiscs before, so I thought that for those of you that have not seen close up pics of the movies, I would showcase the Part 3 laserdisc.

Back
Check out the pic to the right with Chris wearing a winter jacket. She never wore one in the movie. She wore a windbreaker jacket in later scenes in the movie.

Insert

A poor quality image of the front of the insert that is included with the movie. Basically, Japanese laserdiscs include inserts much like DVD’s include inserts.

This is the back of the insert. I like that this insert displays a lot of photos from the movie. There are inserts from later releases in the franchise that show little to no images from their respective movies.

    Awesome stuff, jasonsfury my good man!

    I’m a HUGE Part 3-D mark, namely because it is my absolute favorite film in the original series, so anything pertaining to the Steve Miner sequels and The Final Chapter, I’m always into seeing from the past.

    Indeed: I was looking at Chris’ parka-style heavy Winter seasonal coat, and I believe it’s either a rare take or probably a rare promotional piece, as we never see ever with anything like that in the film. As you noted, she is simply wearing an easy-to-tear nylon early ’80s jacket at night time as it is easily to break-away for the stunt women for when Jason tugs at her shirt during the window scene.

    And I like all of the lobby card inserts on the back. It’s a shame & pitty that Laserdiscs, with all of they’re flaws were never perfected and never came down in price or made smaller or whatever, as for years I would have prefered them, flaws and all, to VHS tapes that played the cropped Fullscreen versions of all of our favorite movies of any genre, and with no extra special features on them. Laserdiscs have some more then modest problems, such as Laser Rot and the like and with being over-priced and often very loud as I learned from a deadpit.com YouTube video with The Creepy Kentuckian, but they’re covers and a lot of old school special edition’s and they’re gatefold covers that were basically the size of vinyl albums always facinated me.

    i always wanted a laser disc player back in the day. i think for a longer movie you would have a couple disks that you would have to flip which was kind of a buzz kill, but the quality was great and it’s cool to have something the size of an LP with friday the 13th art on it! Thanks for posting

    OMG! I just love things “lost in translation”. Look at the chapter headings. “Water Harpoon” “Red Hot Tongs”. Priceless

    Yea, all of Japanese laserdiscs have these types of chapter listings. It is humurous to see.

    Yup, same here. Reading Fangoria’s Laserdisc reviews from the mid ’90s onward, I always wanted a Laserdisc player and some solid special edition’s for the longest time during my youth, because I knew they were often more then ot in Widescreen, and had things as a Cinephile I would be interested in, such as the writer/director’s commentary track as he or she commented on the project. And yeah, I heard aboiut how they would have to be flipped and there was laser rotting problems, ect. A lot of that was covered in The Creepy Kentuckian’s “When Laserdiscs’ Breifly Ruled the World” (from deadpit.com’s YouTube channel) video a few weeks back.

    Here it is:

    I got a LD player in 1994. I still have all 100 discs. I proudly own a copy of the first Friday The 13th movie.

    As for “JasonX” and a newer F13 movie, laser disc was not sold in Japan.
