    I just read over at the Horrorspeak forum that New Line has bought the rights for all the F13 films from Paramount and that they have announced an 11-disc box set for sometime next year, featuring uncut versions of all ten films and a shitload of extras. Can this be true?

    If they did, then most stores wouldn't have carried it.

    This is a horribly cruel joke I assume. The Friday the 13th series is my favorite in horror and I'd kill (really, I would) to have a SE box set of all the movies. But I doubt thats going to happen anytime soon. It would be so cool to finally see ALL the movies uncut, but I wont keep my fingers crossed since they'd probably turn black and fall off from waiting.

    Maybe an extras disk could be included in the box set. This could cover most if not all the movie's extras like behind the scenes, interviews, music videos & the like. I'd like to see running comentaries on each of the 9 or 10 movies itself.

Each movie will have a commentary by the director of the film,stars which are yet to be announced(although New Line says that the survivor(s) of each film will do a commentary on the film they were in),and the man who played Jason in the movie,so yes Kane Hodder will do a commentary on films 7-10.

    Heh-heh, yeah. But you know this is probably speculated B.S. But none-the-less interesting. If all the legal crap from the different movie companies can be settled then yes, this will be well worth the dough!:cool:

    I hate to burst all your bubbles, but those "features" listed sound way too much like a fanboy's wet dream to be something people would really put on a DVD set. a featurette entitled "the enemy" when talking about the MPAA? I don't think that would make too many people over there happy, and New Line wouldn't want to piss them off (wouldn't want to have R rated Lord of the Rings from now on because of it, woudl you :D hehe). Seriously though, it just sounds like things someone would make up to be their dream set, and not something that would actually come out. I mean, yes, New Line would be the company to do it, but I would put money down that this is fake.

    It's a fanboy's wet dream.

    The status of the poster says it all - banned. Enough said.

    Even if that set is never coming out, those specs would make for an amazing box set!

    Martin Blythe has been quoted on HTF of saying that horror fans are going to be VERY happy this fall. So I think we are going to be getting some classic slashers, extras, and maybe even a box set of the Friday films. I can't wait to see what Paramount has up their sleaves.
