Director John Carpenter’s horror classic, Halloween, will arrive in a 35th anniversary Blu-ray book on September 24th. Fans of the film should be incredibly pleased. The film has been completely remastered – a definite improvement over the previous Blu-ray release.
The transfer has been supervised by the original cinematographer of the film, Dean Cundey, and features an all new 7.1 surround mix. The original mono mix has also been included. Special features include an all-new documentary entitled, The Night She Came Home, in which Jamie Lee Curtis holds a fan convention in order to raise money for charity. There is also an informative and fun audio commentary with Jamie Lee Curtis and John Carpenter. Other features include trailers, TV spots, an On Location special, and additional footage. The Blu-ray book features more information on the making of the film, as well as several production photos.
If you are a fan of the film, I highly recommend this release. It was well worth the wait. This is the best that Halloween has ever looked, and it sounds amazing. You can purchase it at Amazon.com.
