But which one?
Not in the sense of sequels, but rather in which version of the original should you add to your collection. You see, this film has had the DVD distribution rights by Anchor Bay Entertainment (now known as Starz), and they have re-released this classic now a total of six times. So I would like to compare the two most popular versions to see which one should be for you, the "Restored" or the "25th Anniversary"
Starting with the "Restored" version, this DVD was authored way back in 1999. However, it was personally restored by Halloween original cinematographer Dean Cundey, trying to preserve as much of the look of it's original theatrical run.Read more ›
#1 A very well made scene where Dr. Loomis (Doneld Pleasance) has an intense conversation with two sanitarium officials. He begs that they move Myers to a maximum security ward, saying that the boy is dangerous and has an instinctive forsce within him. The officials are unimpressed by what Loomis says, and simply keep Myers in the minimum security ward.
#2 A scene directly following the previous added scene. Loomis walks into young Michael's cell. For about 1 minute he simply stares at the boy, who stares out the window. Loomis then says "You've fooled them, haven't you Michael? But not me!"
#3 This scene is after Myers escape. Loomis walks with a nurse into Michael's room, which is completely trashed. The nurse shows him that the word "Sister" is carved in the door. (If you've seen Halloween II, then you know what this means).
#4 This final additional scene is my personal favorite. In this scene we get a bit more of Jamie Lee Curtis, a bit more of PJ Soles, and a bit more of Nancy Kyes/Loomis. Lynda (Soles) comes over to Laurie's (Curtis) house, and they have some girl chat. Then, Annie (Kyes/Loomis) calls and asks (unsuccesfully) if she can borrow some of Laurie's clothes.
I really love this new version of Halloween. It just feels more complete.Read more ›
That 4th DVD release proved to be the most problematic. While the quality of detail was greatly improved, somebody made a huge error in that they completely stripped away the blue tint from the film that made it appear that it was set in the fall. It just didn't look how Halloween was meant to look. A backlash ensued and Anchor Bay claimed to have taken those complaints into consideration with Halloween's blu-ray debut.
While the initial blu-ray release did correct some of the color timing errors of the divimax DVD release, it still just didn't look right and it was obvious that they didn't film the movie actually in the fall as the grass was too green and the night time scenes lacked that famous blue tint that gave the film such a great atmosphere.Read more ›

Amazon also sucks at putting the same reviews for the standard DVD movies as they dot the Blu-ray DVDs. They should be seperate entirely.

|Halloween box Set||
Yes, it was released by Anchor Bay, but not in America. I bought my copy, which has all Halloweens 1-8, in England so it's region 2. And it was pretty expensive and doesn't have alot of in-depth bonus features. It still rocks because not many other people have it.

|What did you think of the remake and what horror classic should be...||
I agree with some of your points, but I don't think tt was a complete failure. Zombie is very visual oriented, and he got them dead on (pun not inteaded). Myers has never looked this brutal or menacing, and the cinematography is gritty as hell; you become quite engrossed in the film. Where... Read More

|Who's your favorite Scream Queen?||
I'm a BIG fan of the 80's B-horror movies, like Nightmare Sisters and Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama. My three favorite 'Scream Queens' are the ones who starred in a lot of those--Brinke Stevens, Michelle Bauer, and Linnea Quigley. Read More
