There IS one:

And I'm in the SAME situation as with Halloween -- I have all of these on DVD already (except for the horrific sequel), plus have the original in its "Digibook" original Blu-ray release...


Don't you remember we discussed this in post 277 of this thread?

Amazing set, we finally get Halloween H20 (one of the best sequels)in its proper aspect ratio and special features. The producers cut of 6 looks amazing, all of the new special features are great the individual black cases with the original poster art. All in all one of my favorite box sets.

Oh how I wish I could agree with the previous poster regarding H20 being one of the "best" sequels in the franchise -- this series went down the proverbial, Busta Rhymes-induced toilet after The Return of Michael Myers (which I consider the last real decent "sequel"). I mean, really...this idiot who should have hung his acting chops up after John Singleton's Higher Learning screaming out "Trick or Treat" (or was it "Happy Halloween"?)..."MOTHA ****A!!!!" in Resurrection? Really? That's where the series went from the days of Carpenter's inventive, classy, tension-riddled and atmospheric original?


This is precisely why I, personally, have been in such a state of frustration since the announcement of this set...as a diehard fan of the original and the followups until part five but absolutely loathing the other films including Zombie's unnecessary and irrelevant remake, I don't see this as being of any value to me. I wish there was a "non-diehard-fan-of-the-whole-series" mini-collection that included John Carpenter's Halloween -- the THX transfer from 1999 plus the 35th Anniversary transfer from last year -- Halloween II, Halloween III: Season of the Witch and Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers...


Ahhhhhh to dream.....

We actually only got to the first Halloween and the sequel on the 31st; finished the "franchise marathon" on November 1 with Halloween III and 4...

But a few others feel BOTH Blu-rays have the color timing wrong, even with Gundey approving the 35th Anniversary Blu-ray transfer. There's been some comparisons to the THX-approved 1999 DVD release, where the trees along the streets actually have Fall colors. The 1997 DVD doesn't have "orange/rust" colors in the trees. Just the 1999 THX DVD release, which is also a Gundey approved transfer.

Now, start fighting among yourselves over which is the CORRECT look!

Edit: Screencaps from three versions:

1999 THX DVD:



Original Blu-ray:



35th Anniversary Blu-ray:

the first picture does not show up.

Who needs 4K?... just go see your optometrist.

Either way, I prefer (and enjoy, regardless of the heightened "murkiness") the 1999 THX DVD version (and I own Anchor Bay/Starz' first Blu-ray release, which looked pretty bad in many places to me), and it's the one we watch every year.

Awesome!


It's still considered, in some enthusiast circles, the definitive version, visually, of Halloween...
