Maybe some day, the edited footage will be found laying in a Paramount vault but I can't see any reason to think that they've kept edited footage for decades of these movies when, at the time they were made, there was absolutely no reason to do so.

 

They had the footage to restore From Beyond as one example which is also an eighties movie, so i would hope that footage is still there waiting to be restored at some point when they deem it financially viable, could be a very long wait but i live in hope, if it never happens i'd be happy for a proper 3D edition of part 3.

 

So there is no 35mm film footage available for Jason Goes To Hell in it's unrated cut, it's crazy the way these studio's operate, it's short term thinking, none of them ever considered the future and how technology would evolve, no excuse for the nineties when the tech was clearly getting better and better and HD was on the future horizon, maybe if it was the seventies i'd excuse them.

So as expected, it's a repack dumping ground of old discs. I'm going to hold off until this hits a dirt cheap price.

 

My guess is they held off on the uncut version of Jason Goes to Hell and the re-do of F13-3D in order to repack all this again in a new set. It's not like Warner's don't revisit product again and again and Friday the 13th has probably been as consistent a seller as The Exorcist..

You know, I was planning on picking this up, being a big F13 fan, but I think I'm gonna pass, at least right now. I'm not usually too picky about whatever supplements are put on a release, but considering the amount of older extras that are not included here, it's just not cool. Also would've liked JGTH to be the unrated. If I ever come across it dirt cheap, I'll get it, but I'm not paying 100 bucks for this set as it is.

I'm really torn on this.  It sucks that all the special features are repeats, but at the same time I want the remaining films on Blu(especially 6,7, and 10).

I guess if I can find it cheap enough somewhere. 

By the way Matt, Your profile pic is the best.

Shockwaves is one of my favorite horror films.

I might have been interested if Friday the 13th Part 3 was in Blu-ray 3D.

It seems pretty likely that they'll eventually release the discs individually so that'll be cheaper than buying this set.

Since I've got lots of free time on my hands, I've gone through the entire Blu-ray set and here's what isn't ported over from all previous releases:

 

The individual releases from the late 90's and early 2000's:

Friday The 13th (1980)- theatrical cut of the movie

Jason Goes To Hell: The Final Friday- unrated cut of the movie, commentary by Adam Marcus and Dean Lorey

Freddy Vs. Jason- two articles from Fangoria, On Location: Springwood Revisited featurette*, over 300 storyboards, over 100 photos and production art, easter egg with pre-viz sequences

 

The 2004 box set:

Friday The 13th (1980)- the "semi-uncut" version of the movie**

Friday The 13th Part III- commentary by Peter Bracke, Richard Brooker, Dana Kimmell, Paul Kratka and Larry Zerner

Friday The 13th Part VII- The New Blood- commentary by John Carl Buechler and Kane Hodder

 

2009 deluxe editions

Everything is ported over.

 

Unfortunately, Warners dropped the original audio mixes for Parts 4 to 9 and they only have DTS-HD MA audio on the Blu-ray set.

 

* The "On Location: Springwood Revisited" on DVD is a montage of behind the scenes footage but on both the individual Blu-ray release and the box set, it is replaced by a different featurette made for the Starz channel (though it still uses the same "On Location" title for some reason).

** The 2004 box set had an oddball version of the first movie that had some (but not all) of the uncut footage edited back in.

I'm sticking with my 2009 editions that were just put in a very cheap box set a year or two ago.  I wonder why that commentary for part three pretty much vanished after that original release. 

 

Thanks for going through the release and giving the updates.

I'd guess that Paramount (who was in charge of the first 3 on Blu-ray) either didn't care or since the disc already had the 2-D and 3-D versions on it, they thought space was an issue. What's weird is that Warners did port the 2004 box set's commentaries over for Jason Lives and Jason Takes Manhattan but still left off the one for The New Blood.

They might have lost the rights to the commentary. It happens from time to time.

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932
