Myers fans, make more room on your DVD shelf. Sources tell ShockTillYouDrop.com that an ad will appear this week in one of the video trade papers announcing a new six-disc (!) Halloween: 30th Anniversary box set. The latest presentation will include multiple presentations of John Carpenter's 1978 film - including a Blu-Ray edition and the rare extended edition. As an incentive, distributor Anchor Bay will package the set with a miniature Michael Myers mask. Look for full specs and artwork here on Shock soon!

Hopefully the Blu-ray has everything the standard edition does as well as the

mask.

Halloween's proper color tinting better be restored.

Anchor Bay wen't from being the "other" Criterion collection, to being a disgrace to the archiving of cinema.

Well the version of Halloween already out on Blu-ray looks great! It isn't clear if they'll change it or not. I'll be interested to see if there is enough other stuff in this to buy it again.

How about if Anchor Bay released something new instead of double dipping a title that was released just 9 months ago???


Since William Lustig left Anchor Bay they have become the masters of screwing with the costumers and ****ing up their transfers.


No sale!

Not for nothing, but when Lustig was there, they had f..kups galore, as well. SUSPIRIA's botched remix without the inclusion of the original sound mix as a viewing option, the DEEP RED end credits fiasco, TENEBRAE and SLEEPAWAY CAMP missing footage, etc. etc. etc...

You know, there is nothing that confirms that there will actually be a new BD edition. Going just by the wording, it sounds like this could be a set with the existing BD packaged with 5 DVDs. It does not explicitly say there will be a new BD.

That's sadly what this is just read it on dvdactive.com. What a waste.

Mods you can lock this.

From DVDActive - it appears they're just tossing in the existing Blu-ray disc as a bonus item.

I was suckered into buying the BD. Watched it once and will never watch it again. It was that release that stopped me from pre-ordering ANYTHING. I'm sick of getting screwed.

The entire 30th Anniversary Commemorative box set appears to be nothing more than a bunch of previously released DVDs boxed together. AB can be pretty shameless at times.
