    The only thing Paramount could do to make horror fans happy is to sell the rights to a company who gives a shit. If the F13 box set comes from Paramount, you can bet it will just be the crappy R-rated bare-bones discs in a new cardboard box so they can milk it a little more.

    ...Unless, Friday 7 is due out this fall. Could it be that...Is it possible?
    Nah, I might believe it when I see it.

    It's a shame that the box set news is bullshit, but that's certainly what it appears to be. To add to the other reasons people have put forward as to why this might be so: Paramount would *never* sell the series' rights before putting out Parts 7 & 8, that would be financial suicide.

    i really hope Part 7 gets released uncut or at least has a workprint version on the dvd (which was suggested by M. Blythe at one time).

    as for the "specs" of the dvd box set on this thread, it's bs. hell, they even got the ratio wrong for part 3 (it's 2.35:1, not 1.85). also, F13forum is full of wishful thinking fans. a lot on there actually believed Jason x would make 30$ million easily. lol. don't believe the rumors on there!

    Well, let's just hope that New Line doesn't drop the ball on the Jason Goes to Hell dvd and cater to the evil empire that is Blockbuster Video. The unrated version is the only way to watch this film. And it would be nice if JX was released uncut too, even if it's only a matter of 20 frames.
