Halloween stars Jamie Lee Curtis (A Fish Called Wanda, True Lies) in her debut role. Anyone who's ever watched a horror film in the last 35 years knows the story of Michael Myers, who as a child, butchered his sister with a kitchen knife. Committed to a mental institution and watched over by Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasance, Halloween II, IV & V, Fantastic Voyage), he engineers his escape 15 years later, returning to his hometown of Haddonfield, Illinois on Halloween night to terrorize anyone who gets in his way, including babysitter Laurie Strode (Curtis).
Co-starring P.J. Soles (Carrie, Stripes, Rock n Roll High School), Kyle Richards (The Watcher in the Woods, Eaten Alive), Nancy Loomis (Carpenter s Assault On Precinct 13, The Fog), Charles Cyphers (Escape From New York, The Fog) and Brian Andrews (The Great Santini, Three O Clock High), Halloween also cemented the careers of many behind the camera including Carpenter, Cundey, producer Debra Hill and film editor/production designer Tommy Lee Wallace (Halloween III: Season of the Witch, It).

When I bought this edition, the 35th Ann. edition cost twice as much, so I feel I made the right choice.
Although a steelbook would've been nice, the o-ring sleeve is still good quality. The gloss is very reflective, and although it shows fingerprints, it cleans off easily. The actual case is a standard quality Blu-ray case.
The artwork from the 35th anniversary was used on both discs.
I much prefer this addition to the 35th. That transfer seemed to make the night scenes way too dark and tinted blue. For this 40th anniversary, all of the black colors are sharp and the dark sequences are well balanced with their color. The day scenes are less green tinted than before, making it seem more like autumn than the summer in which it was actually filmed. The grain is still evident in some shots, but it's hardly a distraction for me.
The Dolby Digital 5.1 and uncompressed PCM 5.1 are good, but I'm so glad it gives you the option to hear the original mono. It truly makes John Carpenter's score pop and sound better than ever.
Whether or not you already own this movie, I personally find this to be the best restored version. You got two great discs for an amazing price and a nice collectible sleeve to go over the case. I would highly recommend picking this one up.
