Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter: Blu-ray Vs. Network TV Version


As like many movies, deleted scenes were added back into TV airings to increase the runtime. Oddly enough, this TV airing did not cut out majority of the nudity, or violence, or censor majority of the swearing. The only scenes that were cut out wouldn’t have been usually cut out by network censors. Some of the deleted scenes can be seen on the Ultimate Edition DVD under the title “Tales From the Cutting Room”, while some others remain exclusive to the TV. The TV version also suffers some heavy discoloration.

Difference Report:


The network TV version contains two deleted scenes. It starts off with Tommy showing Rob his guillotine. Tommy slices up an object before putting his fingers inside the guillotine. Rob tells Tommy to knock it off, but then Tommy releases the guillotine. Tommy’s fingers are sliced off and Rob begins to freak out. Tommy shows Rob it was just a dud hand, which relieves Rob. Trish comes in and asks if Rob would like to stay, which he declines. Then, Doug goes into a room, where Sara is staying. They talk a bit awkwardly before Doug asks Sara is she has a boyfriend. She says she has a few, which Doug thinks she has none. They talk a bit about the party, where they both reveal they’re not looking forward to it. Doug suggests they should hide out in the room during the party, but Sara declines.
