View Full Version : Halloween H25 Anniversary DVD

Has anyone checked out this new version (yet again) of Halloween? I'm wondering where it's rated among the Special Edition, Extended Edition, and 2-Disc Special Edition. The dvd case doesn't give much info on language tracks and sound quality so I'm not really sure how much better this is than the other editions. Some insight requested please!!!

25 years ago, director John Carpenter changed the shape of terror forever with the immortal story of babysitter Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), Dr. Sam Loomis (Donald Pleasence) and the night that Michael Myers came home. Roger Ebert still proclaims it superb. Entertainment Weekly calls it the granddaddy of teen- slasher flicks, still more primal and frightening than any of the gazillion knock-offs. 25 years later, HALLOWEEN remains one of the greatest horror movies ever made.
For this landmark 25th Anniversary Edition, Anchor Bay has created a stunning new high-definition widescreen transfer of the classic film, plus an unprecedented collection of bonus features that will surprise even the most hardcore fans.

Thanks for the help!
Man, I still wish they would have added the extended scenes or some deleted scenes. The fact it doesnt have them makes this edition seem kinda incomplete.

I was wondering if they had stuck with "The Babysitter Murders" as the title would we be waiting for the 25th anniversary DVD or would the movie have been succesful in any way
