Let's hope fans finally get what they've wished for...but then again, this IS Paramount we're talking about...

Thanks for that info! Paramount should change its name to Anchor Bay for all its Friday the 13th milking. I'm hoping for a Director's Re-Cut of Part VII: The New Blood with the full death scenes actually incorporated. A red-blue analyglyphic 3-D version of Part III would be fun too. How about a release trailer for part VI (as opposed to the teaser trailer). And How about the teaser trailer for part VIII with Frank Sinatra song? Ooh, even the full uncut part 1 could be included! I would like to see the part III original ending too.

I remember being really upset that the box set from paramount was rather lackluster compared to what fans were expecting. Despite that I still purchased it because I wanted to own the films. I'll probably be passing on this unless the features are out of this world and its on blu as well.

With the remake coming, this was inevitable.

Good to hear, I was about to buy the original box set. They better have the uncut versions though...

I already bought the last set, which I thought was really good. It would be nice to have all of the films, but I guess there are some rights issues. The extras they had were pretty good, so this one would have to be something pretty special for me to break out the wallet again.

Oh fuck yea! Fantastic news! I owned all the single dis editions, so I held off on the box set when I saw it was kinda weak. I want all the extras, but they're not worth $45. Hopefully this new box is as jam packed as they're saying. I'll buy it for sure. I just want them to make all the films as uncut as possible, especially part 7.

It's funny, the only Jason movies from Paramount I REALLY liked are the ones where he's a Zombie: VI, VII, and VIII.

I'd like a commentary on all the films. Including a scene specific commentary by Sean Cunnigham on part 1

I pre-ordered the first set for $25 thanks due to a thread here on DVD Talk.

What I want:

- Uncut presentations.
- Better picture and audio quality. I don't want two films on a disc like the last outing.
- 3D version of Friday the 13th: Part 3.
- A comprehensive documentary detailing all eight Paramount films.
- The advertising material (trailers, television spots, the whole nine yards).

Actually the bonus disc on the current box set already has this with new interviews with some of the cast members. I believe the documentary is almost 2 hours long.

However, I do agree that each movie needs to be re-released uncut with new audio commentaries. 2 movies per disc is ridiculous.

Well, here's hoping. However, I think we're all going to end up very disappointed.

I, too, have held off on the previous boxset. If this one delivers, I'll bite.

Plus:
- OAR
- Originial Poster Art [none of this hockey mask on the first movie bullshit - it comes out during #3] The art can be separate cards on the inside for all I care but NO mask 'till pt3! You can put the mask on the outside of the main box, in fact, make the whole set with a hockey mask replica (as a handle for the box) on the front that flips up to reveal the discs inside.
- Lobby Card Sets
- Original Soundtracks in addition to new mixes

I want unedited films It's why I don't own the original set. I have a bootleg of 3 that has the 3d intact.... So I can live if that isn't on the set.

Same here. VI was by far my favorite, and the only one I currently own on DVD. While I didn't like VII's plot, my God did Jason look bad-ass in that one!

I'll only bite if the movies are uncut. Charge whatever you want for it. If Paramount wants to make some serious dough from the die hard fans, release the movies uncut!

Agreed. I would be stunned of any of the films are uncut.

It's amazing, the Friday the 13th films were very successful for Paramount during the 80s and then they made too many and the films got worse and worse and they got rid of the series, selling it to New Line.

They made 2 disc sets for all the Star Trek movies, why can't they just do that for the Friday the 13th films?

And please, also release a Blu-ray version. That would not only make my day, but the entire year.

I don't think each film warrants a two-disc set, except Part III for the inclusion of the 3-D version.

They can put all the extras on two discs just reasonably.

I think he means, if the film audio was originally mono, mono in addition to any new 5.1 mixes.

I too will spring for Unrated cuts. And IV is the best. Crispin Glover dancing, random banana girl kill, hot naked twins, Corey Feldman, corkscrew/headstand bloodletting and more.

I own the box set and although it does have some things that need work on; owning these movies on Blu-ray is what I want. Despite having 2 movies on one disc and the movies not being uncut the set was pretty good. I thought the bonus features on the last disc were plentiful, but I can see some fans wanting more.

Re-mastering all these movies in HD, commentaries on all them, extra content and the movies all uncut on Blu-ray would be great. Hopefully news comes that a BD version will be available the same day. The remake of Friday the 13th will hit Blu-ray for sure, so if they don't release a BD box set of all the movies when this DVD set hits the stores; they could release it the same date as the new movie.

who cares about BD? (I'm still bitter over Firefly BD getting extras that aren't on regular DVD's). I would like remastered versions that aren't on flippers.
