For those of you who like to watch movies the old-school way at home, two of the more notorious entries in my favourite horror series are scheduled to hit in high definition on Aug. 28 care of Anchor Bay Home Entertainment.
And true to all that's awesome about Blu-Ray, Halloween: The Return of Michael Myers and Halloween: The Revenge of Michael Myers are loaded with extras on top of glorious digital transfers. These aren't the best of the series, but they are certainly worth the watch.
Scope out the specs below, and keep your credit card ready; these are a must own for any Halloween completest.
Halloween 4: “He had maimed 16 people to get to his sister. He was shot and incinerated, but still the entity that Dr. Sam Loomis (the legendary Donald Pleasence) calls “Evil on two legs” would not die. Tonight, Michael Myers has come home again…to kill! This time, Michael returns to Haddonfield for Jamie Lloyd (Danielle Harris) – the orphaned daughter of Laurie Strode – and her babysitter Rachel (Ellie Cornell). Can Loomis stop Michael before the unholy slaughter reaches his innocent young niece?”
Bonus Features: Deleted & Alternate Scenes (30 minutes of NEW scenes!), Audio Commentary with Director Dwight H. Little and Author Justin Beahm (NEW), Audio Commentary with Actors Ellie Cornell and Danielle Harris, Audio Commentary with Writer Alan B. McElroy, Halloween 4/5 Discussion Panel, and Theatrical Trailer
Halloween 5: “Michael Myers survived the mine explosion thought to have killed him. One year later, his traumatized young niece Jamie is horrified to discover she has a telepathic bond with her evil Uncle…and that Uncle Michael is on his way back to Haddonfield. But Dr. Loomis has a new plan to destroy The Boogey Man in his childhood home using Jamie as bait. With enhanced gore and effects, vengeance has never looked so gruesome!”
