I waited about 2 years after this set came out... and then I bought it. I just couldn't wait anymore. I didn't own any of the movies on DVD yet and I'm such a huge fan of the first 8. I'll tell you what eats ass... any Friday the 13th movie New Line made.
But I heard they just couldn't find all the uncut material for the movies, so they put uncut stuff from 3 movies on the bonus disc. Except for Annie's throat-slitting from part 1 because they want people to buy the single-disc for that. Which I was going to... But I think that scene in the movie is probably available on YouTube.
The thing that annoyed me most about the set were the unbelievable transfer problems for parts 1 and 4. There are 3 big color / tint change problems during part 4 (first during Tina's window-death, then during Doug's shower-death, then when Trish hits Jason in the face with a hammer). Another of these happens on part 2, during the scene with Sandra and Jeff walking in the woods. And then during part 1, there are at least 3 different moments when moving objects get all screwed up - Crazy Ralph riding away on his bike, the swinging light shade during Marcie's death scene, and Alice and Bill going into Jack and Marcie's cabin when they find the bloody ax. I mean, Paramount couldn't even get this right??
I heard Anchor Bay tried really hard to get Paramount to let them release the Friday the 13th series but Paramount said no. I really have lost all my respect for that company. Besides, they don't try at all anymore on any of their Special Collector's Editions. They had a few good years, but after 2002, they just gave up trying to do really thought-provoking extras. Their featurettes are even less interesting than Anchor Bay's now. I don't know what happened. In fact, the only people Paramount are making happy are all the sci-fi fans and Star Trek geeks. No offense.
