The Dark Delicacies pre-orders will also include the same Bonus DVD as was previously announced. They also re-confirmed this yesterday.

For anyone who's read the book, am I crazy for being more interested in that than this?

It's the same thing with the Nightmare on Elm St. documentary that came out a few years back, I loved watching it the first time but don't think I'll ever re-watch it again.
I like the nostalgic appeal of these things, but I have mixed feelings about adding them to an already large collection where storage is becoming an issue.
Seems like an extended bonus feature more than an actual film.

We already got a bunch of retarded interviews before so why should I care now? I already have the book at it's awesome I love it. So please anybody feel free to tell me why I should buy this?
That's how I felt about His Name Was Jason. They did get a few actors from the films (although there seemed to be more interviewees that weren't from the films), but nobody said anything about the making of the films. They just broke down the slasher rules Scream style. It was pointless and a big waste of time.

However, having seen Never Sleep Again and More Brains, this should be fantastic. Neither of those had a dull moment. And as previously mentioned, the extended interviews had absolutely no overlap. Some of the stuff in the extended interviews was better than what's in the actual documentary.

I'm sure a lot of it will overlap with the book, but regardless, if there were ever a F13 doc to have, this is it.

And if you're wondering about the interviewees, head over to their facebook page. They have tons of pictures from the interviews, and it looks like an AMAZING line-up. My favorite pic showed Larry Zerner from part III in front of the store where they get in the altercation with the bikers. I didn't see Amy Steel or Adrienne King in the pics, but I'm sure they'll be involved. Both have been very willing to talk about the movies (I even got to meet Amy Steel a few years ago).

And I know the remake was extremely recent, but I was happy to see they got the beautiful Julianna Guill for an interview, especially after re-watching My Super Psycho Sweet 16 again a few nights ago. Would love to see her become a future scream queen, she's great!

Pre-ordered and I already own the book. Anyone who is questioning whether or not this release will be worth it just needs to watch Never Sleep Again, the best making-of documentary I've ever seen.

Their NEVER SLEEP AGAIN documentary and DVD was far and away the best documentary I've ever seen on the genre and one that I've watched a few times already. This set looks to be even more robust with 7 hours for the feature and 4 additional hours on the bonus disc. Unreal. As a FRIDAY fan I'll probably not leave my house for a week going through all of this. If the doc has a commentary like NEVER SLEEP AGAIN...well, there's another 7 hours of my life too!

Interesting. I'm a little disappointed that they didn't get Lexa Doig for Jason X, but it still looks like an impressive list.

Good to see they managed to interview Richard Brooker, Danny Steinmann and James Isaac before they passed away.

Steve Miner won't ever do a video interview for the sequels. He looks down on them.

He's too busy directing stuff for ABC family.

i really want this, but $40 USD is pretty steep. i think i'll wait for xmas. if i miss out on the extra disc, well then - so be it. i wish they had a dvd option, though. i would have gone that route to save a few bucks. i don't really care if interviews are in HD or not...

He's silly. H20 and Lake Placid weren't very long ago and I think his Friday sequels are far superior.

There does seem to be more of a sense of shame you feel from people that worked on the Friday series whereas the people behind the Nightmare series seem very proud and not embarrassed by it at all. Of course that is not true for everyone involved in both series but generally speaking.

I know that Patricia Arquette did not want to discuss NOES III but from what I've been told that had to do more with her experience with the director than her looking down on the film. I am sure Johnny Depp was too busy as he did not have any problem showing up for Freddy's Dead and has stated he would have done Wes Craven's New Nightmare if asked.

For the Friday sequels, Steve Miner will not discuss, I know some writers on Part III do not want to speak of it and other actors have acted displeased about it too in press articles I've read. They worked on Friday the 13th, not Cannibal Holocaust - funny how uptight some of them are.

What's with Part III? TFC is the far more mean spirited sequel and yet no one has issues speaking about it.

I don't get it either. I was hoping Miner would get his ass of his head and do an interview for the disc but nope. Oh well.

I donīt know why Kevin Bacon was not interviewed... he already admitted he like the movie and praised the FX.

I think I may have found Jeff Rogers. This picture kind of looks like him plus 30 years of course.
