DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey

Shout! Factory has tabbed Sept. 28 for the release of the first five films in the Halloween series as 4K Ultra HD/Blu-ray Combo Pack editions.

Director John Carpenter’s Halloween, starring Jamie Lee Curtis, was released theatrically in 1978 and became one of the great horror film franchises … spawning eleven films in the series, with two more from director David Gordon Green on the way (Halloween Kills, with Jamie Lee Curtis, is slated for an Oct. 15 theatrical launch, while Halloween Ends is scheduled for an October of 2022 release).


The original Halloween has been given a new 4K film restoration from the original camera negative (supervised by cinematographer Dean Cundey) and comes with two commentary options — the first featuring John Carpenter and Jamie Lee Curtis and the second with director of photography Dean Cundey, editor Tommy Lee Wallace and actor Nick Castle (Michael Myers).

Halloween II (1981), Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982), Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988) and Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers (1989) all feature new 4K film restorations and come with at least two commentary options … and a boatload of bonus goodies.
