1. Avoid this release like the plague. This Blu-ray Disc only has the movie and nothing else. LITERALLY! No subtitles, no trailer, no anything.
2. The picture is subpar for a high-definition transfer. Not to mention, it's not in the original aspect ratio. H20 was filmed in 2.35.1. This version's ratio was changed to 1.78.1.
3. The audio is pathetic. You don't even get surround sound. You get a pitiful DTS 2.0 Stereo track. The DVD at least offered us a 5.1 mix. I thought Blu-ray Disc was supposed to be an upgrade from DVD?
Save your money and avoid this title. Echo Bridge has a reputation for butchering films and they did themselves justice with this one. Until we as consumers stand up and quit buying this garbage of a release, they will never give us the quality that we deserve. The links below will give you a little more information concerning this release.
it was a good start and end the end is the of the best in the Halloween series the only thing is they say things about Halloween 1 and 2 but nothing about 4-6 like if thats was me i would have said about Jamie and they did not and when Jamie lee was telling her boyfriend about
Micheal she said nothing about Jamie like she was dead
it was a good ending i will not say
if you are think about buying it rent it first to see if you like it
i think it was OK like i said
it was a good start and end
First, this release is not in the original aspect ratio. Originally released theatrically at 2.35:1 (per imdb), this Blu-ray includes a cropped 1.78:1 aspect ratio
Second, the only audio option is a DTS-HD 2.0 stereo mix, as opposed to the 5.1 mix included as part of the original dvd release from December 1999! Additionally, there are no subtitle options for the hearing impaired.
Lastly, there are no special features whatsoever.
So, let's see, no OAR, comprimised audio, no subs, no special features.
Remind me again why anyone would by this rush cash grab by Echo Bridge?
Now the headmistress of a private school, Laurie Strode (Curtis) is still struggling with the horrifying, 20-year-old memories of the maniacal killer Michael Myers...when he suddenly reappears with a vengeance.
Laurie's rebellious son (Josh Hartnett, 30 Days of Night), his girlfriend (Michelle Williams)and the school security guard (LL Cool J, TVs NCIS: Los Angeles) will become Michael's newest victims unless Laurie can conquer her greatest fears and put evil in its place once and for all.
The time has come again for you to experience the frightening fun of Halloween the motion picture series that totally redefined terror.
This 7th installment of the HALLOWEEN film series is set in an alternative timeline in which the events of HALLOWEEN 4-THE RETURN OF MICHAEL MYERS, HALLOWEEN 5-THE REVENGE OF MICHAEL MYERS, and HALLOWEEN 6-THE CURSE OF MICHAEL MYERS never occured and continues directly from HALLOWEEN I and 2.
HALLOWEEN H20 is set 20 years later after the horrific events in the original HALLOWEEN centering on a post-traumatic Laurie living in fear of her ghoulish mass murdering hellbent brother Michael Myers who maliciously murdered 16 people on Halloween night of 1978 attempting to kill her all those years, but when Michael eventually appears on Halloween night of 1998, Laurie is forced to face evil one last time whilst the life of her teenage son John Tate(Josh Hartnett) hangs in the balance.
Meanwhile back in the fictional midwestern town of Haddonfield, Illinois on Halloween Eve of 1998; the now deceased Dr. Loomis's colleague Marion Chambers(Nancy Stephens)gets killed off after a brief confrontation with Michael Myers(Christopher Durand) when she discovers she's been burglarized and ransacked in search for Laurie's file and discovers that Laurie is still alive and has relocated to a small fictional town in Northern California called Summer Glen to start a new life with a new identity.
Then on Halloween Day of 1998; this flick reveals to us that Laurie had faked her death and is now living under the alias of Keri Tate who seemingly had a perfect life with a son, a boyfriend named Will(Adam Arkin), and a great career as headmistress at a private boarding school called Hillcrest Academy High School, but the tragic ordeal from 20 years ago still continue to haunt her & adversely affect her parental capabilities, yet to everyone else including her school secretary Norma Watson(Janet Leigh), it's just another Halloween day, but Laurie still continues to live in constant fear from the attacks back in the Fall of 1978 & partially believes Michael is still alive & will eventually return and finally find her one day while Michael is already stalking the school grounds & eventually Michael & Laurie come face-to-face again for the first time since their last encounter 20 years ago, except this time they have a fight to the finish on Halloween night of 1998.
HALLOWEEN H20 was also the last film to have Jamie Lee Curtis co-star with her late great mother(Janet Leigh)too along with the fact that Jamie Lee Curtis & Janet Leigh had previously co-starred together in John Carpenter's THE FOG back in the Winter of 1980 too.
Something else I found intriguing was John Carpenter(Director of HALLOWEEN I)was originally in the running to be the director for HALLOWEEN H20 since Curtis wanted to reunite the cast and crew of the original HALLOWEEN to have more active involvement in it, but since Carpenter's starting fee was $10 million dollars, the job was given to Steve Miner from the director of HOUSE, FRIDAY THE 13TH-PART 2, and FRIDAY THE 13TH-PART 3 instead.
What makes Halloween 7 a worthwhile story and a good watch is the fact that Laurie Strode/Keri Tate (Jamie Lee Curtis) is back in the storyline. I think the franchise took upturn with the 7th film . I feel like the story is back-on-track where it should have been to begin with. For me, this is really the 4th story: leaving (3,) 4, 5 and 6 to the waste-side.
We can finally get back to Laurie and her brother Michael. This is what makes the Halloween series feel like "Halloween" to me.
