More online rumors (from hometheaterforum)..: "One of the commentaries only happened because the director strongly requested to do it. He did it for free, but we almost didn´t get it - why? Because Paramount cut the production short. Two commentaries did not happen, despite the parts being available and willing. One commentary already available in R2 was not acquired. (To be fair, that commentary was only cut and pasted together from the Warners documentary, and would not have been well recieved as an official commentary for this set-ed.) Restored cut footage available in R2 and R4 is not part of the set - it was not acquired. Paramount cut the music video and bloopers reel to cut down on costs. One employee at Paramount confirmed by phone they do have cut footage (not in VHS, in actual film), all it takes is someone go down there dig it up. Not an easy job, right - it´s definetly a lot of man-hours. Well, two different professional DVD producers (one of them coming from the Nightmare set and other horror DVDs) offered to go into Paramount´s vaults look for the cut footage for free. Two different guys offered to do it. Not some random fans, two DVD producers. FOR FREE. Paramount turned them both down. ( ) The team that produced the DVD set wanted more time. Paramount refused. Paramount´s rep said he was "dying to prove you wrong" when the regulars at HTF said there was no way the movies were going to be released unrated. This set could be much better. They had the guys for the part 1 and 4 commentaries THERE, being interviewed and willing to do the commentaries. All it would cost was paying the sound booth guys to record it. A commentary track can be shot in a few hours. Part 3´s commentary was shot in a couple hours, so in 3 or 4 hours of work, they would´ve gotten TWO EXTRA commentaries. This has been confirmed by not only Savini but also By Peter Bracke and the team behind the DVD set itself(toolbox): we didn´t get commentaries for part 1 and 4 because Paramount didn´t allow them to do it."
