    I saw JGTH and didn't like it. Then my cousin told me about the Uncut version that he saw, and all those kick ass sences were not in the flim. So I am glad to get this DVD, but my fav, part 6 is still as cut as cut can be, maybe one day :(

    I have to admit, I'm a little disappointed that the JX dvd will be cut, especially since it's uncut in R2land. New Line could've also used the unaltered print. I know the cuts are "minimal", but the thing that bothers me the most is that those bastards at the MPAA just HAD to get their greasy little hands on SOMETHING. Oh well I'll buy it anyway 'cuz I don't believe New Line is in the habit of double-dipping.

    Sweet! I can get my copy of Jason X AND Footloose! I hope it's uncut!

    Looking at the covers, I'm wondering what's everybody's favorite F13 poster? I think I'd have to choose the first film's poster. In one of my classes I wrote a page and a half paper on the poster, so I see a lot more in that print than in others. Plus it's very atmospheric and sets the mood for not only the first, but I'd say first 4 films.

    If the R2 version is uncut, I'm half tempted to purchase it despite the goodies offered on the R1 release. This is a sad admission but I really do hate knowing that a film has been trimmed, even if the cuts are small. :(

    Decisions, decisions....

    Amen in Footloose, an 80's classic I tell ya! :)

    As far as my favorite poster, my vote probably goes to Part 3. Jason's knife coming out at you is just damn cool. Part 1 and Part 6 are also genuine classics as well. Thumbs down on the lame text only posters they released for Parts 2, 4, and 5 though.

    rhett, I don't follow you. I was under the impression that 2 was the silhouette with the axe, 4 was the mask with the knife and 5 was... just the mask i think.

    Fistfuck, that may be the case, but all the posters for sale on eBay are of text only original one sheets, and I have yet to see original US theatrical one sheets with anything but text for Parts 2, 4 and 5.

    I've seen that half sheet for Part 2 before Codez, but I've never seen that as a full one sheet...I wonder what gives?

    Rhett, that has always puzzled me also! As a collector of movie posters (a damn expensive hobby, BTW), I have only been able to find the text versions for FRIDAY THE 13TH 2,4, and 5 full-sheets online. Now, I remember seeing THE FINAL CHAPTER, when it debuted in the theaters..and the full-sheet poster displayed in the multiplex was the hockey mask with the knife through the eyehole. On a similar note, when A NEW BEGINNING came out, the newspaper (Dayton Daily News) had the rare, alternate poster image, with the young boy holding the machete and Jason's mask looming in the background. I'm sure the art-filled FRIDAY posters are very rare (and already spoken for) and I am not wasting my money on the awful text-only poster versions!

    It is puzzling Codez...you'd think on eBay of all places there would be at least ONE auction for those mentioned posters. I have checked eBay for Friday the 13th posters weekly for years, and I have never found those posters on auction. Agreed though, those text only posters are just lame!

    BTW....this is probably the nicest ORIGINAL FRIDAY THE 13TH poster that I've ever seen up for bid on Ebay! I am tempted to crack the piggy bank on this one !

    Beware Codez, that picture has been used for most Friday the 13th poster auctions...I think it came from the Moviegoods site. The only way to really assure that the poster is original is if it has the national screen service banner on the bottom-middle. Otherwise, if it isn't folded, it is most likely a reprint.

    Thanks rhett! My enthusiasm quickly died down after I reread the listing and saw that it was rolled (which, as you hinted at, is very rare for a poster from that era)...and then I read your reply...and after checking Moviegoods.com, per your reference, I discovered that it was indeed an exact match to a reprint offered there! Now, maybe the seller was too lazy to scan a pic of the actual poster, but I somehow doubt that. I DID send the seller an email asking if she would send me a clear scan of the actual poster up for bid and if she would agree to using an escrow service. After my enthusiasm died down, did I still want the poster? No....there are too many other sellers on ebay with original F13th posters and with the actual pics of those posters for me to gamble $30 on a seller with a 23 feedback rating. However, I am still curious to see her response to my request.....

    Wait around on eBay...often times auctions go under the radar of most of the buyers, and you can sometimes get vintage posters cheap. I got a mint Friday the 13th original for 5 bucks, and better yet, I got a very rare Halloween 4 one sheet for $2.50 :)

    I scored a F13th Part 8 teaser poster. Its the one that Phelps is using for his avatar. The one with Jason slicing open the "I Love NY" poster. Very cool. Paid $10 at a convention.
