Since it seems that things have re-grouped here…here we go again! In hopes that maybe one-day Paramount will give into our cries, I guess that we continue our quest. It was stated that Martin was interested in knowing what we wanted to see as according to proper, it would have been truly nice to be able to hear that from him directly. What we the fans would like to see, and pardon me for sounding like I am speaking for 'everyone,' is proper respect be given to these films. The issue of Political Climate is one that seems to also come up in regard to horror features. While I respect that 'decision,' I don't believe that it is the true one. Paramount, while saying that the violence and gore is a concern of there and the reason why unrated versions will not be released, why hold on the films. For the very reason of their nature, would these films not be a blemish upon your reputation? Release the films to a studio that is willing to put up the work and the risk of releasing the films in the state that the fans want. A horror film to begin with is to be violent in nature, and though the films were edited to appeal to the mainstream audience, it seems that was has been forgotten is the people that made the movies the money that they brought Paramount. With seamless branching, you would be able to appeal to both sections of the movie going public. Those that like their movies censored and those of us that don't. Having seen the footage from The New Blood that was taken out due to its use of gore, it would be a fan favorite and ultimately would sell a lot of copies of the DVD if it were to be released with the gore re-instated into the film. After all, isn't that really what the movie companies are after to begin with is money? Anchor Bay, I am sure, would be more than glad to accept the rights to the films if you all were to offer them to them, even if only on a limited basis. An agreement could be made between Paramount and Anchor Bay; say for a year to produce the DVD's in their unrated format. After that agreement has ended, Paramount could then regain the titles to keep and do with as they wish. But think of the fans of this series and other horror films. Paramount has said that they have a policy in regards to releasing unrated version, one that says that they don't. That did not stop you from releasing some films unrated before, in fact another horror title, that being Hellraiser III. Why should the Friday films be excluded from this? I know that it could be easily said of Paramount that the demand would not be enough to justify going the extra mile on these titles. Hate to inform you, not all of us are interested in Forrest Gump either. Now while I know that Gump is a mainstream title and will make you the money that you long for, horror fans are tired of feeling like the bastard child due to films that we prefer and give you the money to bank to make films like Gump. For, at least part seven, should it be considered to become an unrated release, I would like to see the following features: *Widescreen (of course) *Unrated (this goes without saying, or at least give people the choice between the two) *Commentary with the director and Kane Hodder, maybe some of the cast (doesn't seem that most of them are too busy these days) *May a shot by shot comparison of the rated and unrated version Basically Paramount, if are not willing to grant the desires of the horror public, please release your control to a company that will do right by this titles, even if it is only for a short period of time.
