    I picked up Anchor Bays new Halloween 2-disc set today. The video presentation is breathtaking.

    Is the transfer a lot better? The one now looks good but if it looks even better I'll get it. I'm a sucker for a nice video transfer.

    I paid $19.99. Looks like I might be taking my receipt in on the 5th. Anyway the video really is stunning, I have not seen the previous DVDs so I cannot compare, but for a 25 year old film, WOW!! Grain is at a minimum, if at all. I hope the same will be true of the Day of the Dead Divimax. On disc 2, the features are great as well, a 87-minute documentary, 10 minute On Location-25 Years later., Theatrical Trailer, 2 TV Spots, 2 Radio Spots, About 60 Poster and Still Gallery photos, the usual Talent Bios, and on the DVD-ROM the original screenplay and Screensavers. Not to mention the commentary with Carpenter, Jamie Lee, and Debra Hill on Disc one. If I'm not mistaken, I believe this is the old Laserdisc commentary.

    Well, a quick trip to DVDFILE should dampen fan's hopes.
    I guess the picture is slightly sharper, but all the colors are washed out in comparison to the last disc.

    What a shame!:fire:

    After reading that review and seeing those screenshots (thanks Mortis) I will probably pass on it.

    Wow that's so irritating. I've grown up watching this film and I can't imagine it without all of those little colorful lighting techniques. I'll get it for the commentary and documentary, but definitely will keep the regular and extended editions for watching it.

    Holy shit! What a fuck-up, every attempt of Carpenter making it look like fall or in the dark is lost! Green grass? This is how they get us to double dip. :fire: The Criterion remains.

    Day of the Dead audio problem and now Halloween. What is AB's problem?

    Went to check BB tonight, before I read this review. The old Halloweens are missing (usually had 2 of each, extended + theatical). Are they going OOP?

    I'm starting to worry about AB's THE HILLS HAVE EYES release more and more. Two big fuckups in a row is not a reassuring turn of events.
