The Halloween Limited Complete Collection is definitely something you need to grab once it lowers in price because that is quite limited for a time. Only if you want that particular set though with those extras, as every individual film is already available with the Producer's Cut of Part 6 eventually being a single release.

Yea, the Friday the 13th rights are more simple. Parts 1-8 were originally Paramount and Jason Goes To Hell, Jason X, and Freddy Vs. Jason were New Line. New Line got bought by Warner Bros. before the remake happened.

But didn't Paramount re-acquire the rights for Friday The 13th after making a deal to fund Interstellar? Warner Bros. wanted in on the money of Interstellar (that Paramount was making) so they gave Paramount Friday The 13th and South Park franchises.
This happened just a few months after the release of this set.
Don't know what that means for this set.

Maybe its not so limited afterall. I can't help but think that it is going out of print soon due to the scarcity of it, if not already. It will likely get a repackaging if Warner still has the rights to do that, which it may not. Paramount may just have rights to future installments of the franchise which they will have to produce within 5 years from 2014, so they have about 4 years left to make something. And they are. A film and TV series (ala Bates Motel) dealing with young Jason and his mother are happening.

It would have been nice if someone informed this particular Friday the 13th The Complete Collection forum about it able to be had at Barnes & Noble for $62.
So greed got the better of you causing you to miss out on the Bestbuy price . That's a bit of an unrealistic expectation IMO. The Barnes & Noble sale was posted about in a new thread that was open in the deals sub-forum. It's up to members to check these things. Everyone is after different titles, is every thread for a title supposed to be alerted to a sale. Also, I made a mistake, the $62 price I mentioned previously required the use of a code, giving you a further 20% off:

http://forum.blu-ray.com/showpost.ph...ostcount=36630

I was actually going to buy the set for someone, I had it in my cart and had entered the code, I just forgot about this when I made my previous post. As you can see in the link above, that was posted in the Australian sub-forum, and if we can manage to keep up on U.S promotions and sales, then it should be equally as easy if not easier for you to do so

When you consider the manufacturing cost is probably under 10 bucks, yeah 80 bucks is too high. Besides, it offers nothing new except dated prints and the same old extras. Let's not forget that all the films are still cut except for part 1.

And from the perspective of a foreigner, 80 bucks is too high to import a box set that will most likely deliver me at least one of the discs horribly maimed. Sure, Amazon is really good about customer service, but how many box sets would I have to go through before getting an intact one?

I believe Paramount has always had the domestic rights to 1-8. They did the original DVDs and re-released those films to DVD around the time the reboot came out, as well as 1-3 on Blu-ray. I think Warner just got the sub-license to those films for this boxset (kinda like how Anchor Bay/Scream got the sub-license to the later Halloween films for that set). The Paramount logo is on the discs for 1-8. I think it will be re-issued at some point, at least with cheaper packaging.

Interestingly, Warner Bros. has always had the overseas rights to the original film.

Paramount still has the rights to Friday the 13th 1-8, Warner still has the remaining films. Paramount, er, Comedy Central also still has South Park. What Warner had was a co-production deal for South Park films of which: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut was the first.

Warner has traded their production rights to any new Friday the 13th and South Park films in exchange for co-production rights on Interstellar.

This box set is not a special licensing deal by Warner from Paramount for these films. Nope, its a standard home video licensing deal. Back in 2012 and starting Jan 1 2013, Paramount entered into distribution agreement with Warner for over 600 titles. Warner would handle distribution or take over distribution of these titles. Warner will also produce and master any new to Blu catalog titles with Paramount providing elements. For new to home video titles like Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters and World War Z and Labor Day, Warner would just take over distribution.

This deal is good for three years and Paramount can opt to renew it or let it lapse. So essentially, this set will continue to exist until at least January 2017.

Good. Plenty of time to wait out the inevitable price drop. If it really lasts into 2016, I predict a $30 tag. The wait begins...

Hopefully with the announcement of the new movie today WB will consider releasing the movies again either individually or in a much cheaper collection...something along the lines of the Nightmare collection.

Individual releases perhaps, but what would be the point of putting out another set? It's more likely that neither scenario will happen until Paramount regains distribution rights. At that time I'd expect double feature releases.

I never understood why they made the set that we have now in the first place. It can't be cheap to manufacture and package everything together. Looks like it would have been cheaper and made them more money to just throw the discs in a case like the Nightmare On Elm Street series. Plus as many times as amazon.com has yanked the set and with all the returns Best Buy had WB is probably in the hole.

The F13 rights are only divided between Paramount and Warner. And that's a meaningless distinction at the moment, because thanks to their current deal with Paramount, Warner already had the home video rights to the F13 films they don't own outright. So it's not really comparable at all to Halloween. Every one of the Halloween films had to be licensed.

Nothing worthwhile over past releases and lousy transfers. Wait for the 4k release but I'm sure Paramount will release another crappy set
I would pay 70 bucks or more for this set. To each their own.

And the only other film with an uncut version is JGTH? Paramount never cared about the franchise when it was starting, so they've lost all of the deleted footage from Parts 2 and 3. The deleted footage from Final Chapter is included and New Blood's deleted gore scenes only exist on an old VHS tape, so clearly they can't do much with that.
