Frighteners Documentary uncut? Safely say YES!
- Submitted by Lewman

Here at TBHL we like to get to the bottom of things. Right to the very bottom! So we have been doing some sniffing around on the BBFC and guess what we found! We found the submitted documentary parts that they have classified. So what does this mean? Well it appears that documentary is split into 5 parts. Now each part is just under an hour in length. Here are the exact details :

26/09/2005 Universal Pictures (UK) Ltd - 58m 2s
THE FRIGHTENERS - MASTER REEL 1

19/09/2005 Universal Pictures (UK) Ltd - 51m 21s
THE FRIGHTENERS - MASTER REEL 2

26/09/2005 Universal Pictures (UK) Ltd - 53m 48s
THE FRIGHTENERS - MASTER REEL 3

26/09/2005 Universal Pictures (UK) Ltd - 51m 15s
THE FRIGHTENERS - MASTER REEL 5

Now we are missing the 4th reel, but im pretty sure from my calculations (having owning the out of print LD) that the 4th reel will be approx 54mins. This means that the documentary by all approximation will be full and uncut.

Hooray Universal! You've made me a happy bastard!

Here's some more news on The Frighteners. Taken from theonering.net

Even More Frighteners Goodies lined up!
- Submitted by Lewman

After a deep anal probe of the BBFC the following nuggets of fun were dug up for the Frighteners Special Edition Extras:

THE FRIGHTENERS - INTRO TO FEATURE THEATRICAL - 2m 20s
THE FRIGHTENERS - INTRO TO FEATURE DIRECTOR'S - 2m 39sCUT
THE FRIGHTENERS - INTRO TO MAKING OF - 1m 55s

Now whats intresting is the seperate Theatrical and Directors cur intros. I guess we can now expect BOTH versions to be included in the DVD set. Either via seamless (haha) branching or it being on another disk. I guess that would explain why the French Edition has announced the release as a 3 disk set. Whether the US R1 version will have this is not clear yet, but defiantely the UK R2 version will.

So look foawrd to seeing a new slim trim PJ introducing each of the featurettes!
