2009 is shaping up to be a dream year for Slasher film fans with several high profile special edition releases of some of the genre's most legendary films. Deluxe editions of at least the first three Friday the 13th films (including rumors of a 3D release of Part 3) are coming at the beginning of the year, as is the special edition of My Bloody Valentine. Still no word yet on whether the My Bloody Valentine disc will have the legendary cut footage reinstated in the film or whether it will be only in the special features, but either way it sounds like a dream disc for many of us who grew up with the film and have only dreamed about seeing the cut bits.
Fingers crossed for the success of these titles, as it might just alert some studios that there is indeed a high demand for uncut prints for many of these films. Even just bare bones releases of some of titles would be welcome as many favorites (my year would be made with just a release of Night School) are still completely missing on DVD.
