I swore there was some discussion of this set in another thread, but I can't seem to find it. No, wait. It was in the 'Movies that Deserve Better on DVD' thread. Anyway, I figured I'd start a thread about it, since we now have full specs for the 5-Disc DVD set. All 8 Paramount 'Jason' films will be included, with 2 on each disc. And then a bonus disc of extras. Shame that the uncut editions of the films couldn't be found or included. But at least we're getting the deleted scenes and some nice extras. Here's the specs:

At Last, this Halloween, Paramount Home Entertainment Unleashes:

As much as I dislike the double-movie discs, there is no way I can pass this set up. :D

Of the Paramount titles, I only have 1 and 7 on DVD right now (the rest on VHS) so this will be worth it.

Thanks for the info, Binksy. :)

Well its about time they did a box set of this series. :rolleyes: Hopefully they're going with all new transfers too. I rented a few of the earlier releases on DVD a while back and the picture/sound was VHS quality. :p

I'll pass though. I enjoyed a few of the films, parts 1, 4, 6, and 7, but for the most part I thought the series was rather ridiculous and should've ended a long time ago.

Seems that Paramount heard the complaints that the Jason's on the Disc Art and on the cases didn't match up with the Jason from either movie on the disc. So here's the new 'correct' artwork. Heh, frankly I'd rather they spent the extra time to do more features for the movies, especially more commentaries. But ah well, beggers can't be choosers. :)

With a $60 MSRP, and probably a $45-$50 retail price... I plan to. I like the films, not enough to have boughten the crappy barebones $30.00 versions that came out before, but all of them for this price is mighty tasty. :)

Ok, Best Buy annoys me once again. And so does Paramont for releasing stuff that could have been on the box set, as a damn store exclusive. Especially when people were complaining about a lack of features in the box set already. Now if Best Buy doesn't have the best price, people will be really pitching a major fit about this choice. Just like they did about the lack of uncut versions and the disc art. Not to mention they don't even have the correct price on the box, since the MSRP is only 79.99, and BB wants 99.99. :rolleyes:

Update:

Best Buy fixed their pre-order price. It's now $57.99 instead of $99.99, which is pretty darn good. It may even be cheaper on release date. :)

Why aren't they releasing the last two? Were they by some other company?

I doubt I'll get this. I have a few on tape from when Spike TV played them last Halloween. Once you've seen one, the others can't be too different. One of the ones I saw had him without his mask, and he looked really freakin' stupid, not even like a dead human, but a poorly designed monster. :rolleyes:

Aye. Paramount made the first 8 movies, and then New Line purchased the rights to Jason. They made 'Jason goes to Hell: The Final Friday', which was supposed to set up 'Freddy Vs. Jason'. But it took so long to get anywhere with FvsJ, that they made 'Jason X', which takes place after FvsJ. :)

This really has nothing to do with the upcoming DVD release but nonetheless I thought some of you "Friday the 13th fans" might be interested in this. The official site for the upcoming book entitled Crystal Lake Memories: 25 years of 'Friday the 13th' was launched yesterday on whadya know friday the 13th.


Now, this landmark series will be documented for the first time in Crystal Lake Memories: 25 years of 'Friday the 13th.' Culled from exclusive interviews with over 200 cast, crew and industry luminaries and fully illustrated with hundreds of never-before-seen images, Crystal Lake Memories will take you behing the scenes of all eleven films. From the conception of Friday the 13th, to the series' controversial effects, to the blockbuster success of Freddy Vs. Jason, Crystal Lake Memories is the ultimate document of the ultimate horror franchise.

http://www.crystallakememories.com/

The book is slated for a 2005 release. I thought this might make a nice companion piece to the DVD set.

Oh, thanks. Was Freddy New Line all along, or did the same thing happen to him?

Nope, Freddy was always a New Line property. :)

It's a tiny bit more complext than that, but basically. Note that Paramount has also considered the F13th Series a huge embaressment for years. Even though they were a decent money maker. I think the only reason that New Line really bought the full rights, was because Paramount didn't want them anymore. :)

I'm still working on going through the whole set but I do like what I've seen so far. The bonus disc is awesome and the bad thing is that the interviews are so good that it leaves me wanting more.

Corey Feldman disappointed me by saying that he would love to come back as Tommy for another movie and just disregard the sequels beginning with part 5. Look, it's too bad he couldn't do part 5 (save for that opening cameo) because of The Goonies but I'm sorry dude - these movies have enough continuity issues as it is: I don't need him adding to it by reprising his role in a third direction. :D

And more we got, with the release of "His Name Was Jason"

Anybody else see it? For $10, I thought it was worth it...some interesting interview clips in there.

I heard it wasn't as good as the Halloween documentary we got a few years ago.
