Complete ‘Halloween’ Series Blu-ray Set To Include Rarest Alternate Cut

Here’s something to look forward to in the fall – if you’re a Michael Myers’ fan: Anchor Bay and Scream Factory will be releasing a complete Halloween blu-ray box set!

For the first time ever, there will be a single box set including Halloween, Halloween II, Halloween III: Season of the Witch, Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers, Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers, Halloween H20, Halloween: Resurrection, and Rob Zombie’s Halloween and Halloween II.

Yes, you read correctly – the box will feature not only all ten major Halloween releases spawned from Carpenter’s original and the Zombie re-imaginings, but also one of the rarest items in Halloween lore: the “Producer’s Cut” of Halloween: The Curse of Michael Meyers. This “producer’s cut” is an alternate version of the film that was also the big-screen debut of Paul Rudd, and features quite a few scenes that aren’t in the theatrical release. And the set collects films from multiple studios and rights holders, previous multi-company wrangling is what has prevented a complete series set from being released in the past.

There will be two versions of the set:

  • The 10-disc Edition includes the original theatrical versions of the Halloween films and will include select bonus features. Expected US RRP is $129.99.
  • The 15-disc Deluxe Edition contains all the Halloween feature films, and includes the never before released producers cut of Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers as well as the ultra-rare network TV version of the original Halloween, the network TV version of Halloween II, plus the unrated versions of Rob Zombie’s Halloween and Halloween II. It is packed with hours of bonus features including new interviews with cast and crew from the entire franchise! It also comes with a limited edition 40-page book written by Michael Gingold of Fangoria Magazine. The collectible packaging will include a newly commissioned illustration on the outer case and each film will be in its own black Blu-ray case with the original theatrical one sheet as the key art. This deluxe set expects to have a US RRP of $169.99.

Now… where did I put that Bill Shatner mask?!?
