Default Halloween 35th Anniversary Limited Edition Steelbook - Official Announcement

Halloween 35th Anniversary Limited Edition Steelbook



The night HE came home in High Definition!

Halloween
35th Anniversary Release in a limited edition collector’s steelbook and brand new high definition transfer? YES PLEASE!

It is the horror classic that gave us the first scream queen, a formidable horror icon and a soundtrack that is instantly recognisable anywhere in the world. Halloween is the definitive slasher film that defies time and continues to get better with age. Featuring a whole host of specially created special features, a new audio mix and a transfer supervised by John Carpenter himself. This is the high definition release fans have been waiting for; delivering clarity, content and entertainment in equal measure! A must buy!

Key talent:


John Carpenter (The Fog, Vampires, Escape From L.A.)

Debra Hill (The Fog, Halloween)

Donald Pleasence (Escape from new York, Safe Haven, The House of Usher)

Jamie Lee Curtis (True Lies, Freaky Friday, Halloween: H20, Veronica Mars: The Movie)

P.J Soles (The Devil’s Rejects, Jawbreaker, Carrie)

Kyle Richards (ER, Pledge This!)

Synopsis:

In 1978 John Carpenter’s Halloween was hailed as a “brutally efficient exercise in tension” (Entertainment Weekly), scaring audiences worldwide with a new breed of menace and a whole new set of rules.

35 Years after its original release, Anchor Bay return to the original source material alongside creator John Carpenter and Director of Photography Dean Cundey to supervise an all new High Definition transfer. Containing the original audio and an all new 7.1 audio mix alongside a feature length audio commentary from John Carpenter and international star Jamie Lee Curtis.

In the small town of Haddonfield, Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) finds her night of babysitting turns into a night of sheer terror as she comes face to face with the “Bogeyman”. As her friends are cut down one by one Laurie becomes the focus of attack turning one night into what seems like a lifetime… a lifetime about to be cut devastatingly short.

You'll Love It Because...

Halloween has scared audiences throughout the generations, this low budget horror is a benchmark in filmmaking becoming one of the most successful independent films of all time. A tense and passionate piece of filmmaking that brought a monster to life and a memorable heroine to our screens, Halloween is the horror that everyone knows and loves, taking suspense, scares and horror to the next level and maintaining it.

Relive the horror on the night he came home this October. A film this historic and intense should not be missed.

I've got the AB/Starz Blu-ray plus the 25th Anniversary 2-DVD edition. I don't think I need this new version in my collection right now. It doesn't look as though it contains anything other - extras wise - than what's on the current BD anyway.

Am I the only one that's annoyed by the tagline at the bottom? It should be The night He came home. That minor niggle aside, I have it on preorder.

A fantastic set BoF.

You clearly have the definitive edition. I didn't know there was a four disc set.
