1.0 out of 5 stars
Is Paramount on drugs?, Oct. 19 2001
I have to say that as a long time Friday the 13th fan I will
NOT buy parts 5 or 6 on DVD.
This may sound shallow, but I CANNOT get past the pathetic,
poor excuse for a cover. Did Paramount lose the legal rights
to the original poster/artwork? That is the only sane explanation
that I can think of for not putting it on the DVD cover.
Let's face it people, the cover sells the DVD!
Jason lives is one of the best in the series. But due to the
fact that the artwork ... (it's more reminiscent of Blair
Witch than F:13th) and there are NO special features and it is
NOT in 5.1 I will NOT BE BUYING anymore of the Friday the 13ths
And you KNOW that a year or so from now they are going to release
a SPECIAL EDITION that actually has value.
Do yourself a favor - boycott this poor excuse of a classic
movie series release!!!!! Perhaps then, Paramount will release
a REAL version of the film with ORIGINAL artwork!!!!!!
