Format: DVD
Once Halloween was Samhain, the one night of the year when the dead returned to cause trouble for the living.

Well, Michael Myers wasn't dead, but on "Halloween" he returned to cause trouble for the people of his hometown, with all its dark houses and teenage victims. And John Carpenter's masterpiece lives up to its reputation: creepy, eerie, harrowing, and full of solid acting from Donald Pleasance and Jamie Lee Curtis.

On Halloween, 1963, young Michael Myers lurked outside the house while his sister had sex with her boyfriend. After he left, Michael put on a mask, picked up a knife, and stabbed his sister to death.

Fifteen years later, Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasence) is about to take Myers to a legal hearing, when Myers (Nick Castle) breaks open the psych hospital and escapes in Loomis' car. On Halloween, teenage Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) notices a silent, masked figure popping up and disappearing near her school, house, and neighborhood.

Despite this, she goes about her babysitting duties, even taking care of another girl's charge overnight. The only problem is, the girl is dead, and so is another pal and her boyfriend. Dr. Loomis is staking out Myers' old home, unaware that Myers is now prowling the house where Laurie is staying -- and there seems to be no way to avoid the knife-wielding "evil."

It sounds like a thousand knockoff movies made since then, but "Halloween" formed the original mold. And like any other groundbreaker, it is the most stripped-down, intense example of the genre -- little gore, little graphic violence, but the way it's handled is enough to make your hair stand on end, and make you go to bed with a gun under your pillow.

This is a wonderful edition, back in the days where Anchor Bay was synonym of amazing special features and quality remasters. They WERE the Criterion of horror films in the birth of the 21st century. Were.

This edition of Halloween contains two versions of the film. One is the original John Carpenter version and the second disc holds the TV version presented in widescreen with 8-10 more minutes of film.

There are a few special features such as a 30-min doc entitled "Halloween unmasked" which you could have if you had bought the orange VHS videocassettes back in 1998 (yeah, I DO feel young), trailers and a commentary track. This and the H25 anniversary edition, combined with the recent Blu-ray edition of the 35th anniversary would make for a perfect Halloween experience with all the special features that Anchor Bay NEVER repeats or collects for later editions.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I am not that big into horror films, but this film really appealed to me because of it's very realistic approach to a very real spiritual battle among mankind that actually exists outside of the film industry.

Halloween is a well made horror film about a young boy named Michael Myers who for no apparent reason becomes possessed by a demonic entity that makes him KILL his sister one Halloween night in 1963. Locked up in an insane asylum for 15 years, he escapes to return to the small town of Haddenfield to continue his mission of killing.

He is a quiet killer who never speaks, but only kills. Because he is possessed by a Demon, his very existence is to kill and to never stop killing.

Because he was wearing a mask during his first killing as a little boy and his weapon a Butcher knife, he continues to follow that pattern in this film and throughout the series. Even when a gun falls into his hands, he never fires it, but uses it as a stabbing weapon as stabbing is his method of killing.

The BLUE RAY edition is very well put together, and has an hour & a half long documentary with John Carpenter and cast members that really gives you insight into how the film was conceived and eventually brought to the theatre.

The hidden message in this film is that Michael Myers is NOT HUMAN, but that he is possessed by a demon. This is demonstrated through his Sub-Human strength and ability to survive multiple attempts to kill him.

Being a die hard "Nightmare on Elm street" fan, I bought this set as a present for my boyfriend. I have to admit I was not disappointed and he absolutely loved it. The extras are awesome and just the box itself is worth every single penny. Collectors and Halloween fans should buy this.
