Product Description

Amazon.ca

Halloween is as pure and undiluted as its title. In the small town of Haddonfield, Illinois, a teenage baby sitter tries to survive a Halloween night of relentless terror, during which a knife-wielding maniac goes after the town's hormonally charged youths. Director John Carpenter takes this simple situation and orchestrates a superbly mounted symphony of horrors. It's a movie much scarier for its dark spaces and ominous camera movements than for its explicit bloodletting (which is actually minimal). Composed by Carpenter himself, the movie's freaky music sets the tone; and his script (cowritten with Debra Hill) is laced with references to other horror pictures, especially Psycho. The baby sitter is played by Jamie Lee Curtis, the real-life daughter of Psycho victim Janet Leigh; and the obsessed policeman played by Donald Pleasence is named Sam Loomis, after John Gavin's character in Psycho. In the end, though, Halloween stands on its own as an uncannily frightening experience--it's one of those movies that had audiences literally jumping out of their seats and shouting at the screen. ("No! Don't drop that knife!") Produced on a low budget, the picture turned a monster profit, and spawned many sequels, none of which approached the 1978 original. Curtis returned for two more installments: 1981's dismal Halloween II, which picked up the story the day after the unfortunate events, and 1998's occasionally gripping Halloween H20, which proved the former baby sitter was still haunted after 20 years. --Robert Horton --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Special Features

This collector's edition of Halloween has been fully restored under the supervision of Lucasfilm's THX Digital Mastering Services. The video was transferred by the award-winning colorist Adam Adams (Terminator 2, Titanic) from a new 35mm interpositive (made from the original camera negative) and approved by the film's cinematographer Dean Cundey (Jurassic Park, Who Framed Roger Rabbit). The new Dolby stereo surround soundtrack was created by Chace Productions in association with Alan Howarth using the original 16-track music-studio master and the recently discovered original 35mm magnetic dialogue and effects track. The original theatrical trailers, television spots, radio spots, and the featurette Halloween Unmasked 2000, produced and directed by Mark Cerulli, follow the film's conclusion. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Aug. 11 2007
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.

I've been so excited for this release, however, that all changed when I saw it in the store. It's too big to stack neatly with my collection. When it arrives in the mail I plan to return it. We all know there will be a 40th anniversary edition in another 5 years anyway. Xo

Halloween 35th anniversary Blu-Ray : best HD transfer so far for this 1978 classic. Great extras, and you still get the collector's booklet if it's a plastic case instead of the digibook package. Highly recommended!

Fantastic Movie.... I've already ordered Halloween 4 on DVD . I was a Teenager in High School Back in 78-79 . So I can relate to the Scenery in the movie...... as well as they make and model of the cars and Hair Styles...
My only complaint about the DVD is that it offers Standard and Wide Screen View... The Feature of the Standard View did not work on the DVD as my TV is a 2003 61 " Projection Screen
Non the Less.. Love these Old Classics

I bought the 2007 version when it first came out, the picture quality on it is great, clean, clear, and crisp. And I liked the extras features better on the 2007 version. I was excited to hear this would be a complete remaster job. I don't feel that it is. its video quality is the same as the 2007 version and the extra features aren't that great, except a Halloween Convention with Jamie Lee Curtis signing autographs and auctioning off her Halloween movie memorabilia. I bought this new version thinking it was an upgrade. And its not. And I wished they had've stayed with the original movie poster artwork instead of this cover. I am a real fan of the movie Halloween. I just wished I would've waited a little longer to see reviews on this new release. I wouldn't have purchased this bluray at all. I hope my review helps others in deciding whether or not to purchase this or just stay with your 2007 release. The video quality is identical to me. and definitely not an upgrade.

Halloween statred it all. The movie begins with a young Michael killing his sister and Donald Pleasance as Dr. Sam Loomis and Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode and Halloween turns into a night of murder and mayhem. John Carpenter created a classic with Debra Hill. The haunting music at the beginning of the movie is my favorite opening sequence.

This movie leaves the blood and gore to your imagination. Well-crafted and a classic that will never be duplicated.
