Anchor Bay is set to put out their 100th release of John Carpenter's Halloween. The 35 Anniversary Blu-ray - which features a brand new transfer supervised by Dean Cundey is due out September 24th. I have to say, I'm probably the only horror fan who doesn't love Halloween or the series that followed, but I really like this cover art. It's pretty unusual, like a clown self portrait or something, but it's quite an interesting design choice. I like it.
"For this very special release, Anchor Bay and Trancas went back to the vaults to present this legendary terror classic as never before, including creating an all-new HD transfer personally supervised by the film’s original cinematographer, Academy-Award® nominee Dean Cundey (Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Apollo 13, the Back to the Future trilogy), a new 7.1 audio mix (as well as the original mono audio), a brand-new feature length audio commentary by writer/director John Carpenter and star Jamie Lee Curtis, an all-new bonus feature with Ms. Curtis, as well as selected legacy bonus features from previous ABE releases. Available in a collectible limited-edition book-style package (available only for the first printing) with 20 pages featuring archival photos, an essay by Halloween historian Stef Hutchinson and specially commissioned cover art by Jay Shaw."
