    I don't think it would even take up much more room, the disc would already have the regular version of the movie and the uncut footage so my understanding is that all it would need is an extra playlist that branches the footage into the movie; maybe they'd have to segment the footage too or something but that would just mean breaking things up into smaller files.

    Yes, it's called seamless branching. Essentially a text file of time code that would take up only a few extra one's and zero's is all that's needed. With everything already provided on the disc it would be simple to do.

    However films often have contractual stipulations about what cuts of a film can be distributed. As the film is owned by Paramount I would think it'd cost more money in lawyers to work out what legally needs to be done than it would cost to do the actual production work.

    I don't doubt that finding this VHS footage goes a long way to convincing Paramount's archivists there is something to be found. It seems like finding this stuff on VHS is the prelude to a real search for footage like with Nightbreed.

    Have you seen any of these types of fan cuts? A lot turn out exceptionally well. I'd actually be surprised if it could get much better unless the low quality footage can be cleaned up more.

    Let not forget Shout doesn't do seamless branching though.

    While I'll probably skip this one (as it's not in my top tier of Carpenter films) I'll be very interested in the end product. Scream has released soooo many amazing titles, I'm curious as to whether future 4K releases will be under a different boutiue label or stay with SF.

    The Studio Canal UHD's of the Carpenter films have great transfers, but pretty bad encoding, with visible artifacting.
    This one will probably be much better :)

    Wonder if they will release the F13th movies separately, when the Boxset is out of print?
    I just want the new 4K remasters of the first four movies.

    Or maybe I should just wait and see if they re-release them on UHD in the near future.

    Since I doubt that Shout will insert the uncut scenes into the movie, using branching, I'll rip the disc and make my own F13 part 2 fanedit.

    Do share!

    I still can't believe they found that footage after years and years of scrounging for extras. What's next? Five years from now they discover the original ending for Part 3 filmed on set by a caterer with a camcorder? If so, I'm sold.

    Totally agree. YouTube for me with the footage. The set is stupidly expensive (as all shout stuff is) to justify buying especially as I already have the paramount 8 pack which is nicely packed with features and has everything I need.

    How much do you typically pay for a blu-ray? This set has 12 movies for $160.00. That is a little over $13 per movie. Not unreasonable at all. Then consider the massive amount of extras that are included and it's really a bargain. The argument could be that you don't want all the movies which is fine but this set is not stupidly expensive with all that it is offering.

    I don't think the pricing is out of line for Scream Factory either, but considering the 8 movie blu-ray set had regularly been $20, it is pretty steep in comparison.

    That's about what I paid for the Paramount set. I'm a huge fan of the franchise (and recently able to watch 3D) and skipped the tin so this set is very nicely priced for me. If someone is happy with the old set, that's nice for them.

    I paid 14 quid for the paramount set, so there is a massive difference and my friend has paid 200 pound for the shout set, that's the price I was referring to and pretty much thought that was the standard price it was being sold for.

    That's something that I personally wouldn't bother with. You'll be watching a beautiful looking widescreen print, but then when you get to the only scenes that matter in a slasher movie it'll jarringly switch over to a 4:3 image with terrible picture quality. I think you'd be better off watching the extended scenes separately, but more power to you.
