Ten individual cases packed in one big, sturdy, box. Black cases specifically. Some even have 2 discs per case.

Huh? I assume you're referring to the first film which the disc is the same as the 35th Anniversary edition that's available individually.

I was. At the time that the boxed set came out, had the 35th anniversary version come out? I thought it had a downmix?

You are correct. Unless later pressings of the 35th anniversary editions were fixed, the single disc does not have the true mono track. The disc in the boxset does.

Mono for the original only available in the box set. Same goes for the better versions of H20 and Resurrection.

A few months ago Target was selling the Deluxe set for $67.99 (before Shipping/Tax).

I think that is the lowest I've seen it, sans price mistakes.

So I was right, you have to buy the whole boxed set just to get the damn mono track.

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

I never thought something like this would happen. Would've been a good feature for this.



It is our pleasure to announce a Very Special HALLOWEEN 6 REUNION!
Scheduled to join us for this event is PAUL RUDD, GEORGE P. WILBUR, MARIANNNE HAGAN, SUSAN SWIFT, MARIAH O'BRIEN, J. C. BRANDY and DEVIN GARDNER!

PAUL of course is currently being seen on film screens for his role as ANT-MAN in the new CAPTAIN AMERICA CIVIL WAR film. PAUL will be appearing SAT-SUN ONLY and is graciously donating all of his autograph money to charity. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE keep in mind that we are always at the mercy of film and promotion schedules especially with the Marvel films commanding such attention.
GEORGE P. WILBUR of course played the role of MICHAEL MYERS in both HALLOWEEN IV and VI and is always a fan friendly guest.
MARIANNE HAGAN played the role of KARA STRODE in the film. SUSAN SWIFT played the role of MARY, MARIAH O'BRIEN starred as BETH, J.C.

If that was the case I can't imagine why he would say yes in the first place. I think he shows.

Now if only someone could get Johnny Depp to show for an Elm Street convention and Kevin Bacon for a Friday the 13th Convention.

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

Someone mentioned on twitter that the reason Rudd hadn't done a convention before was that 'Nobody asked him" figuring he would turn them down so they figured whats the point

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

And he already had to pull out:

Monster-Mania Convention
5 mins

So sorry to announce this but I have just received a text message from the booking agent for PAUL RUDD saying that he is unable to attend MONSTER-MANIA CON 34 due to contractual obligations.
His booking agent did all that he could to salvage the appearance but was unable to do so.
Please don't shoot the messenger, it is totally out of my hands. My apologies to everyone for the disappointment, my family and I share that disappointment with you

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

Amazon currently has the big set on sale for $80.99. It's OOP, so it's a crapshoot. Get it now if you're looking for it.

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

^ I almost picked it up this morning when it was on sale but every time I'm just about to buy it I remember I only really like one of the movies, the rest are below average to terrible.

I do wish that I hadn't missed out on the lithograph scream factory was offering. That was nice looking and I wouldn't mind framing it up for my movie room.

Yep...I had it in my cart and stared at it a bit and thought about all the titles I would be more apt to watch (and enjoy). I already own the two-disc set of the original "Halloween" from the "Complete Collection" that I picked up used —evidently someone sold it off piece meal... Anyone who admires the brilliance of the original knows each subsequent film gets progressively worse and even "Halloween II" is a massive disappointment when compared to the original. But for some reason I've wanted to pick up this set anyway... I have little to no interest in the Rob Zombie remakes so what to do? I'll wait till the next time....if there is a next time.

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

Just a head's up for those who missed out on the "Halloween: Deluxe Edition" when it was available at a reasonable price. A marketplace seller via Barnes & Noble has the sets at a price not likely to be seen again. The Seller, CamelAltec (aka MidnightZap) is selling brand-new sets for $96.71. I don't know how many are available at this price, but this is likely the last time this OUT-OF-PRINT set will be available anywhere near that price ever again. I wanted to receive my copy before I posted this information so that I could verify that it was legitimate. It arrived in a size-appropriate box in about 6 days and the item is factory sealed in perfect condition (save for a faint box cutter mark on the closed end of the slip cover/box. I can live with that since it is hardly noticeable without very close inspection—I'm pretty damned stoked to have it in my possession. Good Luck.
