Unlike the pitiful Paramount barebones releases of the Friday the 13th series, the New Line DVD releases of the last two Ft13 movies are fully loaded. They will be released on October 8th. And JGtH will also contain the unrated edition. Hopefully they sell well, and maybe Paramount will re-issue Ft13 1-8 in S.E. versions. Here are the specs, from horrordvd.com:
