John Carpenter had intended after making Hallween II, to do an anthology like series of movies using 1 to 2 movies to tell a story. But apparently audiences associated the "Halloween" series to Michael Myers.
But disregarding the whole "Myers" storyline, this really is an excellent movie that most people don't give credit to. As a standalone movie, the plotline and acting is excellent. People should give this one a chance & see this again for what it is, a screen gem that deserves credit as a great film
Most of the DVD transfers I have seen have been quite sub-par. It seemed that they took full screen footage and added black bars at the top and the bottom to emulate widescreen. Also the transfer of the film itself was grainy and a little muddy at parts. It's also a no frills DVD. No real special features.
The Blu-ray version changes everything.
The transfer from the original source is magnificent. A fantastic restoration job. Everything is crisp and clear, even in the darker scenes. Also, the sound has had a significant bump. There are actually special features this time! You get "Stand Alone: The Making of Halloween III: Season of the Witch", which has interviews with the key cast and director. It really gives an inside look into the decisions about how the movie was made.
You also get an episode of Horror's Hallowed Grounds with Sean Clark taking you to the various locations from the movie. Another great addition. You also get audio commentary with Tom Atkins and Tommy Lee Wallace.
$19.99 is an amazing steal for this great Blu-ray disc. Shout! Factory has done an amazing job. I can't wait to check out their future titles like "They Live" and "Terror Train" and of course "Phantasm II".
