    Paramount, you own the rights to several horror films that are classics of the genre in my book, and I would love to see them get DVD releases. So, are any of the following classics going to be released any time soon?:
    LET'S SCARE JESSICA TO DEATH
    SILVER BULLET
    FOUR FLIES ON GREY VELVET
    MY BLOODY VALENTINE (I would rather see this film uncut more than the F13 series! This film was totally butchered!)
    STUDENT BODIES (This is the best spoof film ever!)
    Also, if these films will be coming out any time soon, PLEASE put some good extras on them! The majority of your past horror releases have disappointingly been barebones, and I'd love to see the genre that I love most get better treatment! Also, thanks for deciding to release THE KEEP and DON'T LOOK NOW in the future, and hopefully there will be extras on them! [​IMG]

    Yeah, but I unfortunately don't have a region free player. I plan on getting one sometime in the near future though. Seeing how the R2 DVD has extras, it will be bizarre if Paramount releases it barebones.

    I too am longing for an Uncut MY BLOODY VALENTINE...as well as any UNCUT Argento titles such as Four Flies...The problem is, if they are going to go to the effort for one title, then it needs to apply to all.

    As rabid as some of you think that the Friday The 13th fans are...believe you me, don't meet up with a Dario Argento fan in a dark alley with an censored version of one of his films.

    I'd love a My Bloody Valentine uncut release. I'm not buying the movie any other way!.......as bad as Fridays 2,5-7 were censored......MBV suffered just as bad if not worth from the cuts.....that it does a complete disservice to the film which is really well made,atmospheric & creepy. Not to mention one of the best early 80's slasher films to come out that year,aside from The Burning(also heavily censored).
    As with Friday 7,alot of work went into the FX,which have never seen the light of day thus far,thanks to a very scissor happy MPAA........and not releasing the fimls as originaly intended is doing nothing but a dis-service to the fans & filmakers.
    Paramount..don't get me wrong, MBV is a classic & great movie......but the extremely hacked,noticable cuts ruin the movie completely for me,that i just will not support a censored release & i know many others will do the same.
    As for Friday 7 uncut & the series.....you know where i stand on that & no matter how many times the mods try to make us look bad & twist our words around,close threads for having a rational/thoughtful discussion(like the last thread).........that will not stop us & we will continue to request(+ write letters ect) info regarding the series until we have the truth,aka a real answer & suceed in our goal.
    I have a friend who's been in contact with John Carl Buechler,the director of part 7 and while he may be busy working on other films and such....he's in full support of our campaign.......i was thinking that we should see if he could take the time to post on the board sometime. If we can get the DP of Return of the Living Dead to drop by regarding it's OAR......maybe its possible to ask JCB to do so as well.......& if so and you continue to ignore the director himself....well that shows what respect you have for filmmakers.
    Theres no garantee that will happen as he is very busy....but we'll try to work something out & let you know.
    + about the Argento film......i'd love to see it,but theres only one way to see his films & thats uncut......they're usualy butchured in the US,not just for violence,but major plot info as well......the US version of Phenomena titled Creepers is the perfect example.....uncut is 110mn,....US version cut is 82mn!!
    Would love to see Student Bodies on dvd as well.....hilarious movie[​IMG]

    Add "April Fools Day" to the list of horror titles I'd like to see Paramount release.

    No commentary on Silver Bullet. Pretty much vanilla.

    Thanks for replying and deciding to release the classic that is SILVER BULLET, but I am a little peeved about the lack of extras. It is great that you are releasing it though. [​IMG]

    On the subject of Paramount "horrors", would Paramount please
    consider the small 1982 film The Sender (anamorphic, uncut; deleted scenes, if any are available)?
    And, also, if Paramount owns the rights to it, a film produced by Manson International/Effigy Films called Scarecrows(1988)?
    Thanks.
