Scream Factory has announced their replacement disc program for their long-awaited Friday the 13th Blu-ray box set. Every single installment from the franchise is included in the set and horror fans have been clamoring for it ever since it was officially announced. However, when it arrived earlier this week, fans soon found out that there were some missing special features that were originally advertised. Scream Factory had this to say in a statement.

We plan to correct those errors by offering replacements for three discs: Friday the 13th Part 3, Jason Goes to Hell (Uncut version), and Jason X.”
The specific mistakes include Friday the 13th Part 3 3-D: (When viewing in 3D), The first instance of 3D opening credits does not come out of the screen correctly. UP next is Jason Goes to Hell: (Unrated Cut), which is missing “snapped wrist” gore in an uncut scene. Finally, Jason X is missing audio during a scene in the film in which Jason kills camp counselors in a sleeping bag. Luckily, Scream Factory is making it very easy for customers to get their replacement discs and it shouldn’t take very long.
