Halloween: The Complete Collection is coming to blu-ray

Apparently from Anchor Bay.

Availble for pre-order on Amazon.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/Hal...=ATVPDKIKX0DER

Halloween night - Haddonfield, IL. A young boy butchers his older sister with a kitchen knife. 15 years later, he escapes from a mental institution only to return home and terrorize the town, including babysitter Laurie Strode. Now pursued by Dr. Loomis, the doctor who tried to treat him until he realized that “what was living behind that boy's eyes was purely and simply... evil”. His name is Michael Myers. And so began one of the most iconic horror franchises in history – what producers Moustapha Akkad and Debra Hill, writer/director John Carpenter and stars Jamie Lee Curtis & Donald Pleasence started has spawned 10 feature films and lasted over 35 years. Now, for the first time ever, experience the terror of every Halloween film available together in 1 set! This limited edition deluxe set includes 15 discs jammed with content Halloween fans will love. Brand new, never before seen bonus features including new interviews with cast and crew, commentaries, behind the scenes documentaries, and so much more. Plus, the NEVER BEFORE RELEASED Producer’s Cut of Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers! The set also features both Blu-ray versions of Halloween as well as the Network TV versions of Halloween and Halloween 2. Here it is, the one that started it all – Halloween: The Complete Collection.

Re: Halloween: The Complete Collection is coming to blu-ray

Crazy! That's huge, huge, huge news.

Unfortunately, I already have most of the series on Blu-ray. Hopefully at least some of this stuff will be available individually to take out some of the sting.

Re: Halloween: The Complete Collection is coming to blu-ray

I wish they didn't include the Zombie films. I'm guessing it's going to mostly be a repackage of all the different discs already released.

Producer's Cut! I've already seen it but kudos for including it.

Did Shout Factory lose the rights to Halloween 2 & 3?

Re: Halloween: The Complete Collection is coming to blu-ray

Echo Bridge had the rights to 6-8, I assumed Lionsgate would have gotten those rights. Is this a collaboration between Anchor Bay, Shout and Lionsgate?

Re: Halloween: The Complete Collection is coming to blu-ray

I realize there is some never before released material for some of the later films, but eight years into this format and we've already seen double and triple dips on some of these films and yet we still don't have one release for the original Phantasm.

Um... WOW!

Of course, until it actually happens, I am skeptical.

I don't think so. Universal owns the rights to 2 and 3. My guess is that Anchor Bay, Shout, and Universal came to an agreement to use the Shout discs. Unless this is a true triple dip and Shout lost the rights while Universal licensed it out to Anchor Bay.

No wonder Anchor Bay withheld those posted extras for Halloween 4 & 5

Funny you mention Phantasm. Maybe Shout gets it in exchange for Halloween 2 and 3.

Re: Halloween: The Complete Collection is coming to blu-ray

I see there is also a regular version of the set that doesn't seem to mention the alternate cuts and extras.

Seems to good to be true.

I'm assuming they have licensed Shouts Halloween 2 and 3.

Re: Halloween: The Complete Collection is coming to blu-ray

Anchor Bay's Facebook indicates that this will be announced on monday. Amazon obviously jumped the gun.

Makes sense that Amazon jumped it. I was going to say this is HUGE news and all the websites have been really quiet about it.

That's a lot of bad crap in this set.

Intersting to see how this may have come together.

Re: Halloween: The Complete Collection is coming to blu-ray

I will be getting this on day one but isn't there going to be a part III made that fits between the second and fourth films in place of Season Of The Witch? So this will only be "Complete" in the George Lucas definition of the word.

Re: Halloween: The Complete Collection is coming to blu-ray

I'd probably be more excited for this if I didn't just get around to picking p the Scream Factory Halloween 2 and Halloween III: Season of the Witch blu-rays. (You can thank me for this announcement, guys!)

All told, I'm not terribly interested in this, especially at that price. I'm mildly curious about the producer's cut of Halloween VI even though I highly doubt there's any way to polish that particular turd. To be honest, I've disliked every Halloween movie that came after IV.

That sort of sucks. I have most of them already except for Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers andHalloween: Resurrection and don't want to double dip just for those to, but really want The Producers Cut of The Curse of Michael Myers. Hopefully that's released separately.

No, that's a sequel to the Rob Zombie films.
