Halloween 35th Anniversary Blu Ray Announced


The 35th Anniversary of Halloween is upon us and Anchor Bay have a special edition blu ray planned. This release will feature an all-new HD transfer and will also contain a new 7.1 audio mix along with a commentary track from Carpenter and star Jamie Lee Curtis. This new blu ray edition will be released on September 24th.

Available in a collectible limited-edition book-style package (available only for the first printing) with 11 pages of archival photos, an essay by Halloween historian Stef Hutchinson and specially commissioned cover art by Jay Shaw.

Bonus features on Halloween 35th Anniversary Blu-ray include:

  • All-new commentary track with writer/director John Carpenter and star Jamie Lee Curtis
  • “The Night She Came Home” new featurette with Jamie Lee Curtis (HD)
  • On Location

        Really? I wanted to see both Versions, not just “Scenes from the TV” as a bonus feature. Pure Laziness, Anchor Bay, and on top of that, Scream Factory can make a better 35th Anniversary Edition with more treatment of Special Features than you. No wonder you’re not so popular anymore.

        ^ not to mention Scream does it for less iconic films.
        Really the only thing missing here for me is the TV version, very cool to get a digibook, new transfer and audio, and two new Jamie Lee Curtis extras. Would have liked to see both versions, but you know they don’t want to give us too much of a complete package, then we wouldn’t want to buy the next release.

        Haha, love Vamp_Slayer’s last line … definitely hits on the head. Still a great release and I will be getting it for sure!
