Exclusive: Paramount Planning NEW Friday the 13th Box Set!

A new Friday box set is on the way!Our man Andrew Kasch just called in with some very good news for you Friday the 13th freaks out there...

There has been speculation since the Friday the 13th remake came to life again that perhaps Paramount would go back and give us a decent F13 box set. Well, an inside source confirmed for us today that that’s exactly what’s going down! Paramount is working on a brand new, revamped Friday the 13th box set that will hopefully put their first attempt to shame.

No word on any of the features yet, but we do know that there is a lot being planned. Of course the goal is to have it done in time for the remake’s release on February 13th, 2009, but only time will tell if that mark is hit.

Stay tuned for official details as they come in, as well as even more cool Friday news very soon!

Uncut footage = double-dip purchase for me. Otherwise, just forget it!

I love the man in the mask (as I am one myself) but I will NOT spend my well-stolen money on another box set unless I get to see all the gory, excised bits I missed the first 400 times I watched each film.

Except for part 8. I watched that one once or twice as a kid, it was upsetting even then. Maybe I should torture myself in watching that one again...

I thought all the cut footage was in Paramount's archives just waiting to be found. Didn't the guy from Synapse offer to go into the archives to search for it?

That's what I read. Don't know if it's actually true or not...

If memory serves me correctly, all the cut footage is lost and only available in bootleg form.

That's a technical impossibility.
