Could you link to the item(s) instead of a generic search that returns 16 pages? There's nothing for $20 on the first page of results.

edit: I have heard of the latest three of the original series coming to blu-ray but I'm not sure what you're looking at there.

A couple minutes of Googling shows Halloween 6, H2O and Resurrection are the titles.

With 3 movies on one disc, I can't imagine great transfers, and certainly no extra features... Still, the price might be right... I look forward to reviews...

It's a Canadian exclusive and won't be sent out for review. At best, a few smaller sites might do it to get traffic. And since Warner can put out 90 minute flicks with lossless and come in at only 15GB, these should look just fine (two are 1080i along with two that are 2.35:1 using less space).

So, you have this set then?
Or, did you read a review online?

Just some crappy assumptions. Others on AVSForum.com seem pretty happy. But if you want to wait around and see if Disney releases all three (yeah right) on Blu-ray and pay the $28 they ask for catalog titles, feel free to wait. $25 for three releases is pretty damn good to me.

If it were just Halloween 6 and H20, I'd happily pay $20 for this. I just can't bring myself to own Resurrection. There are very few movies I hate to that degree.

So ignore that Resurrection is even on the disc.

Re: HALLOWEEN TRIPLE FEATURE : WDS: 18A on Blu ray

Anyone considering buying this, DO IT. You will not be disapointed!
especially at the prices it can be had at.
These are the best these movies have ever looked I watched H20 and Curse last night and they both looked and sounded excellent.
I am getting ready to watch resurection right now.

get it while you can before it sells out and you end up having to pay a premium price,(ala Nightmare on Elm street) because these wont be comming for quite a while in a us release i have a feeling.

if you are a fan of the halloween series how can you not justify spending so little for all 3 movies in HD in their proper aspect ratios.

I thought it made as much sense as the first post and the provided link.

Why buy a blu-ray if it's only a 1080i transfer? Might as well just watch your up-converted DVD.

(excuse me for a moment..........uhhhhhh.....eeeehhhhh....ahhh......just let out a fatty)

Let's see...

DVD of H20 = 480i non-anamorphic.
Blu-ray of H20 on Triple Feature Disc = 1080i anamorphic.

Which is the largest number, maroon?

Re: HALLOWEEN TRIPLE FEATURE : WDS: 18A on Blu ray

Anybody have other recommendations for Canada exclusive titles (and no immediate plans for a US release)? If I'm going to pay for shipping on this, I want to make it worth my while and get a few other titles... I know there is From Dusk Til Dawn, but I'm not sure if there is a US release coming...

Thank you! Those are all fantastic suggestions... I'll have to look up info on the Blade aspect ratios. The Faculty is also at the wrong ratio, but it is close enough (from the intended 1.85:1 ratio to 1.78:1). If Blade is like that, I can handle it. I wish the US would get on the ball and start releasing great titles such as these...

I found an interesting article about Alliance and their aspect ratio changes. It sounds like Blade is NOT good. There are also some other titles mentioned, such as Mimic and Seven. Mimic and The Faculty are good titles to get since the DVD releases were non-anamorphic. So even though they opened up the matte a little, it is still a huge improvement over the DVD...

Cursed is not even close to correct. 2:35:1 originally, 1:78:1 Alliance.

The Faculty is a must own release IMHO if you are a fan.
