    Halloween Classic

    What can be added about this classic that has had it’s elements often copied but rarely equaled? This steelbook does not have the classic artwork, and that may or may not be a selling point to some. Since I own previous versions, I like the new art. Plus, having a blu ray, a 4K disk, and a digital copy made this a must have for me. There’s also a nice behind the scenes extra with Jamie Lee Curtis at a meet & greet with fans. Fun stuff!

    This is my favorite thriller franchise, and now I finally have the first one on 4K. This one, Halloween 2, and Halloween 2018 are by far the best ones to watch. The 4K transfer looks fantastic. The real beauty here though is the SteelBook. Looks incredible. Love how it comes with a clear slip cover.

    Mr. Myers in 4k

    Im very happy with the steelbook. The video quality is a nice upgrade to the 1080p blu ray, but it is not night and day. There is a good upgrade in the audio department on this 4k transfer. I wouldn't use this to demo my display, but for fans of Mr. Myers, this is a welcome steelbook addition to the series. The picture is noticeably smoother and repaired during the daytime shots. This is a very dark film though, so it wont be burst with color from your panel.

    -Feature: Worth the upgrade as it’s one I enjoy watching over & over. A must Have for any Horror fan or A Halloween Movie purchase. Pros: -Picture; Dolby Vision that looked impressive. - -Frame; 2:35:1 -Slipcover; No. Cons: -Sound; While I do appreciate & noticed a new 7.1 audio track, it lacked rear channels. I wish it had gotten completely remastered to drown out the flat/distorted mono sound. It was ear piercing to turn it up. While I do prefer to preserve it, I think it should’ve been optional on the drop down menu with a new Atmos mix that would provide gunshots of today with great sounding impact. When the theme came on though, it was a different story! I was bassy too, I don’t know if it’s been like that & I just noticed or it just got added but I loved it!! -Digital Copy; no digital copy. You think you would for buying the 4K premium copy. Sigh. -Gear used for sound & visuals: LG 65’ C6P 4k/3D passive OLED (manually calibrated) 9.2 Onkyo RZ + pre amp for 7.2.4/11.2 (integrated calibrated then manually tweeted with SPL sound level meter & balance/adjust for full dynamic range) Klipsch Reference Premier towers center sides rears dual R112SW subs Polk Audio MC80 8’ quad in-ceiling heights Oppo 4K UDP-203 Monster cables: Premium Black Platinum HDR HDMIs, THX Audio RCA, Digital Subwoofer Cables & Fiber Optic Ultra 1000 Monoprice 14 gauge awg copper speaker wire Nakamichi Speaker Plugs Auralex Acoustic Isolation platforms

    I'm a HUGE Movie Fan and I Love Horror Movies. I was completely blown away by the clarity and audio that this release has. There are some spots that are still a little grainy like the Original Release from the Original Negative of the Film. But overall I think it's an Amazing release. I would advise that everyone who loves this movie go to Best Buy and buy it.

    Anchor Bay has re-released John Carpenter's 1978 masterpiece "Halloween" about as many times as they have the Evil Dead trilogy. It's been almost impossible to know which one to pick up over the years there are so many versions. Halloween was originally released on DVD by Anchor Bay featuring a bad transfer that didn't do the film any justice at all. They then re-released it again on DVD with a transfer approved by the original director of photography Dean Cundey. The transfer was greatly improved but it was lacking in extras for a film of such great importance. Then they released another cut of the film in which the extra scenes filmed for the TV airings of the film (filmed during the making of the sequel oddly enough) were cut into the film. A 4th DVD release then occured as part of their "divimax" line which was a 2 disc set with plentiful extras and a brand new remastered transfer. That 4th DVD release proved to be the most problematic. While the quality of detail was greatly improved, somebody made a huge error in that they completely stripped away the blue tint from the film that made it appear that it was set in the fall. It just didn't look how Halloween was meant to look. A backlash ensued and Anchor Bay claimed to have taken those complaints into consideration with Halloween's blu-ray debut. While the initial blu-ray release did correct some of the color timing errors of the divimax DVD release, it still just didn't look right and it was obvious that they didn't film the movie actually in the fall as the grass was too green and the night time scenes lacked that famous blue tint that gave the film such a great atmosphere. Anchor Bay though have FINALLY righted their previous wrongs and brought director of photography Dean Cundey on board again to supervise the transfer for the film's 35th (has it really been that long?!) anniversary blu-ray re-release. After directly comparing the new blu-ray to the old blu-ray, I can say that they have FINALLY gotten it right and Halloween looks as it was meant to be seen again. The colors in the new transfer are a bit more muted and natural looking than the first HD go around. The blue textures in the night scenes are back in full force and the film looks like it is set in the fall season once again! Not only that, but detail has taken a considerable boost with the new HD transfer compared to the first one. This is apparently due to the higher bit rate on the new release in addition to I believe they actually did a 4K scan this time of the original camera negative. It's truly like seeing the film again for the first time. No digital noise reduction was used so the film retains its filmlike grain texture. A truly amazing HD transfer of one of the greatest films ever made. The sound is provided in a new 7.1 surround mix but the original mono mix is also included. Both are in lossless HD audio. Extras include a brand new commentary track featuring star Jamie Lee Curtis and director/co-writer/composer John Carpenter. Sadly though, the commentary tracks on the prior releases are missing in action. Most extras were ported over but not all from prior releases as well. This is a bit frustrating and keeps this from being as definitive of a release as it could have been. What is here though is nice and the best is a nearly one hour documentary of Jamie Lee Curtis doing her one and only horror convention to help raise money for a children's hospital charity that she supports. The initial pressing of the new blu-ray also is included in a nice & classy digi-book featuring essays and lots of cool production photos. Apparently once this initial run is depleted, it will only be available in a standard blu-ray case so get the digi-pack while you can. So, I highly recommend this new blu-ray to fans of the film as they finally got the film looking like it was supposed to look again and the new HD transfer is truly a marvel to the eyes. Why they chose not to include all previous extras too on this release is a bit frustrating but shouldn't keep somebody from not getting this new release. It blows the original bu-ray away picture quality wise and comes highly recommended!

    Halloween: A Masterpiece of Minimalist Proportions

    |
    Posted .

    It’s hard to believe that 40 years have passed since the release of John Carpenter’s horror classic, “Halloween”. Dozens of similarly themed movies have popped up over the years, all proving to send those proverbial chills up and down our spines. So what sets this movie apart from the rest? Does this 1978 horror gem still deliver? Or has it all but lost its punch? Let’s take a closer look. The genius of this film lies in its subtlety and sparseness of materials. Elaborate sets and breathtaking scenery are not required. Silhouettes of stark tree branches swaying in the breeze, a few autumn leaves wafting through the air, and the constant play between light and shadow are all that is necessary, complementing one another to create the perfect recipe for fear and suspense. Whoever dreamed that a casual midday stroll down a residential street accompanied by mindless teenage chatter could be so terrifying? Future Filmmakers of this genre take note: less will always be more. Always. Just give the viewer the bare essentials, nothing more, nothing less - and your job will be done. I would be remiss not to mention the superb underpinning of Mr. Carpenter’s musical score, built around a three-note motive, a spark of genius disturbingly effective in its repetitive simplicity. So, yes, this film definitely still delivers! Of this there is no doubt.

    I won't review Halloween because it's clearly the best of the best when it comes to horror. So first off the 4k presentation is off the wall amazing. Its one of the best 4ks available. The tone is less brown and much cooler and natural. It is like watching it for the first time. But I think it's fantastic I will never be able to watch the standard Blu. Highly recommend. As far as the steelbook. If you're lucky enough to find one, buy it. This art is very well done. And they even include a clear slipcover that gives the art a 3d flare. I picked this up at the same price as the standard release so I'm ecstatic so get it so cheap. But it's worth 30$ . So if yo see it for anything less then that. Don't think twice. Just buy it.

    One of my favorite horror movies. The one to start the slasher craze of the 70’s and 80’s. Yes I know we have Black Christmas to thank as well for introducing the POV of the killer. Came with a nice protector sleeve. And absolute must for horror/collectors.

    Being a huge Halloween fan once I saw they wear releasing this on Steelbook I had to buy it. When it comes to Steelbooks I don't collect a lot of them it always comes down to if am a big fan of the movie along with the design they come up with for the case. I just love how this Steelbook turned out everything from the color to the images they used for me is perfect and the transfer of the movie is very good it's the same as the standard 4k release. I recommended any huge Halloween fan to add this to their collection, unfortunately, this is out of print no longer for sale on Bestbuys website much like a lot of the exclusive steelbooks they need to be purchased right away this can be bought on eBay.

    Nearly perfect

    There have been oh so many releases of the original Halloween on home video (it may surprise some of you to know that CRITERION even released an all-out special edition in a LaserDiac box set a long time ago), and starting with that release, and continuing through the DVD and Blu-Ray eras ALL versions have looked great thanks to NOT being cropped from 2.35:1 to 1.33:1. John Carpenter had very specific requirements in his contract when he shot this film right down to the lab he wanted To process and print the film. He made SURE that this would look like a very technically accomplished film right out of the gate. There HAVE been some differences when it come to color timing — some drastic, in various versions, but it has never looked bad. And as expected from a film shot on 35mm utilizing the best technology available at the time from the original camera negative right down to the duplication of the theatrical prints, it looks even more stunning than it ever has before on UltraHD Blu-Ray. I can’t complain at all. Sure I can — it only comes with the UltraHD Blu-Ray and a standard Blu-Ray. This seems down to the fact of Disney’s refusal to ever participate in the otherwise ubiquitous Ultraviolet digital copy system and creation of Disney Movies Anywhere so that they had total control over distribution of digital copies of their films. Well folks, all they did was drop the Disney from the name and it’s now known as Movies Anywhere — and after luring Warner, Universal, and Fox as sufficient to doom the future of Ultraviolet, it seems they slammed the door in the face of anyone else joining Movies Anywhere — notably Paramount, MGM, and Lionsgate (the distributor of his disc) as well as any smaller or independent studios and even shutting the door on any Miramar releases WHICH THEY OWN! So l, my complaint is that you do not get the customary Digital Copy as you do with most Blu-Rays and nearly all UHD Blu-Rays these days because one company decided to overthrow an open distribution system that had been in place for nearly a decade and had worked welll. HeybMickey, you’re the real Boogey Man.

    Slipcover on a steelbook looks great!

    Owned for 1 week when reviewed.

    I really like the design of this steelbook, and the transparent slipcover is a great touch. Steelbook editions aren't typically a big deal for me, but this seemed essential for my Halloween movie collection and might be the nicest looking steelbook I own. The UHD disc looks great. It's the same disc as the normal edition UHD. It could have been a definitive edition of the movie, but there's no option for the original mono audio track (last available in the out of print box set blu-ray collections). The blu-ray disc included is the same as the one released in 2007 or 2008. I believe it has a different video transfer and extra feature not available in the 35th anniversary blu-ray put out a few years later.

    This Steelbook is a very nice addition to my collection. The movie speaks for itself. If you’re a ‘Halloween’ fan, this is a great edition to get. The Steelbook has a “fall” vibe to it, has great artwork, and even comes with a clear slipcover, which I think is a nice touch as it will help prevent as many scratches as Steelbooks are accustomed to getting.

    One of the best steelbooks of 2020

    Posted .

    Halloween is one of the greatest horror films of all time. Not much needs to be said about John Carpenter's Halloween. This steelbook is one of the best Best Buy has produced in all of 2020. The artwork is fantastic, with the fall colors as the highlight. The plastic slipcover makes this a must-have purchase. All of Best Buy's steelbooks should come with some protective slipcover. Overall, this is one of the best steelbook purchases that can be made.
