Help: looking for... Friday the 13th - Alternate Versions...

I was wondering if anyone could help me in getting copies of the alternate cuts from the Friday the 13th sequels. I had an old data disc with copies of everything, and after I finally found it in a box in the basement so I could watch them while I’m stuck inside, I realized the disc no longer works.

I believe this is what I’m search of.

The Final Chapter - Workprint & TV Version
A New Beginning - Version 2 & TV Version
Jason Lives - Workprint/Workprint Composite & TV Version
A New Blood - Workprint Composite
Jason Takes Manhattan - TV Version
Jason Goes to Hell - TV Version & Workprint

Or any others if there are more that I’m unaware of. Any format is fine, and any help is greatly appreciated.

I actually have a copy of the F13 New Blood workprint composite. The quality is not the greatest as the deleted scenes are straight from an old vhs, and are missing some elements such as background music etc. and while they have been added back into the film itself (using the deluxe dvd set version if I remember right) the effect is far from seamless, again due to quality, but for what it is it is still a huge treat to see this as the director intended before the MPAA butchered it.
This had the potential to be the best F13th sequel out of the bunch but sadly I doubt that we will ever get to see this one in better quality than this.

I’d love to check this out if you can provide me a link.
It’s a shame no one had the foresight to save a lot of old “unrated” footage.Friday 13th, Event Horizon, and Nightmare on Elm St stick out as films I’d kill for a good unrated/Directors cut.

You and me both! The whole Friday the 13th series aside from the first were totally ruined by the MPAA. I used to have a copy of NOES that was a composite that added back some scenes (the scene where Nancys mom explains Freddys backstory originally revealed that the Elm St. kids had all had older siblings who were murdered by Freddy and Tinas/Glens original deaths being the two that stand out to me) but unfortunately I dont think I have this anymore.
Event Horizon is also at the top of my wishlist as well as a more complete version of Wes Cravens Cursed.
Im afraid I don’t currently have a link to the composite of New Blood as I found it as a torrent probably 10 or more years ago but I have it stored on an external hard drive along with some other rare goodies.
I would have to go through my hard drive to see but I think I might even have a couple of the other movies you are looking for out of the series. I could try to upload it somewhere. Im kind of new to all of this so Im not exactly sure how to go about it. Any suggestions/help would be majorly appreciated.
