Well, I actually think the new artwork is a huge improvement. Still not perfect, but a lot better. 1 & 2 is the best, but it IS loaded with spoilers. But for me as a longtime fan who knows what's coming, I like it. I think the Sackhead Jason pic on the disc is great, too. The 3 & 4 stuff is great, too. 5 & 6 I'm torn on. They still are using the generic part 5 art, but did use the original 6 art. 7 & 8 are a little disappointing, with 7 using that generic artwork again. At least the newer style art on part 8 is themed to the film.

On a side note, I finally saw Part 3 in 3d today. I loved it. It just makes the movie so much better. All the cheesy "aiming stuff at the camera" shots are suddenly fun. You start eagerly awaiting the next one... "Ooh, the pitchfork is coming up!!!"

Hell no man, I'm pumped up and ready to buy, Jason's my boy - always has been and always will be

I am pretty excited about this release also. Yes, it could be better but since I don't have any of these movies, I will take what I can get.

The artwork looks like the Lakeshore Entertainment logo. With a mask.

I'm reaaaaaaaaaaally undecided on this. I already have the first eight films on DVD, and I don't really care enough to want to see all the extras. The only way I may buy this, is to save space on my DVD racks. I could probably just trade in Friday The 13ths at FYE and add a little cash for the set, but I don't like the whole 'thin pack' with two films per disc format at all. They could have easily done a great looking cardboard flip set. My decision to possibly not buy is not based on this stupid '3 D' debate or the debate over the mono sound, I could care less.

I will still definitely be buying this -- even though at first I was going to boycott it because it was not released uncut.

now could uncut versions be even possible? i mean, with the exception of part 1, they would have to spend alot of money finding and restoring all of them.
also, each movie is about 90 minutes, so thats only about 3 hours per disc. i mean look at how good rotk looks.

That's bad, but not near as bad as the morons over the Sleepaway Camp box set, as they spoiled the ending of the first one in the description on the back of the DVD box. I couldn't believe that they did something that stupid.

Perhaps, but couldn't we have gotten part 1 at LEAST?
We know it exists in pristine format; Warner has released it in every other region. I don't feel like buying this box THEN importing the first movie.

Yeah, I really can't stand it when companies decide to ruin movies like that right on the description of the case. But in all fairness, I think they did that because they figure only the small fanbase for the Sleepaway Camp films will purchase this set, these films are really not well known among a lot of people at all. They figure they would release this set on the assumption only people who've already grown up seeing those films, would ever buy the set. But all in all, really stupid thing to do anyway.

I bought the set, only because of how many people I've heard through the years say that the first film at least, is a "must see" with one of the weirdest endings ever to a film.

I had never seen any of the films, I never saw anywhere where I could watch them in my area untill the box set.

On my way home from the record store where I picked the set up, while at a red-light, I read the back of the box and had the ending spoiled for me, the reason I bought the set. I couldn't have been more pissed off.

I also don't understand why some DVDs have the ending, and various important scenes, spoiled in the DVD menus, that is just so stupid. I think one that does this is The Usual Suspects.

This is the only one I'd actually pay for if they ever managed to release it on DVD in 3D.

That BB price isn't right. Amazon has MSRP listed as $79.99 and they have it for $55.99 .

Once BB gets their act together, it might turn out to be the best deal when you toss in the extra disc.

So you only get another free dvd if you buy at Best Buy! thats not fair!

and I paid $50 for mine and am pleased about that, when worked out per film its still great as I dont own any of them, but still cannot see full uncut versions ever coming out, some people will be waiting a very long time.

anyone know how long any of these special features are? if they are 2 minutes Featuretes then I will definaltly be an angry git!

Martin Blythe spoke to Fangoria about how finding footage is an on-going search and how this could lead to single disc special editions. I, personally, don't really care anymore what happens, it's just depressing at this point.

"This is not about gouging the fans with repeated releases, its about providing as good a set as we are physically able to do at this time. If there is enough interest from the fan base and it sells well, we would always entertain another look down the road."

"If the set is successful, it could lead to single disc special editions down the road, possibly with unrated gore put back into the films."

Not picking this up for sure now. I want the bonus features(bonus disc), but there arent enough for me to replace all the ones I have now (in their spiffy custom matching cases) especially w/ 2 on a disc now. Maybe down the line they'll release uncut, oh well

Ouch - well, that's bumped these from "I might get them next time DDD does a 20% sale" to a rental. I like the films, but not enough to double dip for the more gore versions in the future.

Sorry, Paramount - you done fucked up on dat one!
