    don't worry if you miss this one, there should be at least 20 to 30 more re-leases before long.

    No movie cash for the remake with this new release? That always seems to be a great perk for people to buy new versions regardless of how many other versions are already out there.

    LOL so basically someone's gonna spend maybe $15 on a re-issue of a movie that they already have for a a "free" movie ticket that would cost them maybe $9 or $10 without having to buy a stupid re-issue. Seems really fucking stupid that someone would buy a re-issue of a movie they already have just for a movie ticket that costs them more than the price of a normal ticket anyway.

    Now, since Dimension owns the rights to the franchise, it would have been better to have a HALLOWEEN 6 in anamorphic with a movie ticket. Hell, let's add the producer's cut too, just to make it completely and utterly impossible.

    People complain about Anchor Bay double dipping, but just once I'd like to see Miramax/Dimension do it. I can't think of a single horror movie that they released on DVD in the 90s that they've since revisited. SCREAM and HALLOWEEN H20 were huge hits for them. Why aren't they worth anamorphic transfers?

    The Faculty
    Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers

    Hellraiser: Bloodlines
    Scream - Director's Cut

    If Dimension re-released these in 16x9 I would come calling immediately.

    Nice list, Noto. I for one would hope that if Halloween 6 ever sees a re-release that the powers that be (still the Weinsteins, I assume), would have the decency to include the "Producer's Cut". I'd like it see it in a formation other than a semi-fuzzy 3rd generation convention copy.

    Yeah I still haven't bought both The Faculty or Curse of Michael Myers in hopes of better DVD releases in the future.

    So how does this 'Movie Cash' thing work? Is it a free ticket to the movie? Or a discount on the ticket?

    Thanks.

    all of those need new dvd special editions as all of those have alot of deleted/tv scenes and alternate versions i heard hellraiser bloodline was like halloween curse of michael myers in terms of a totally different movie but a producer's/alternate cut never surfaced

    Good point. In case anyone is interested, I went to my local best buy yesterday (Merced, CA) and they're offering the remake movie ticket inside the halloween 4 and 5 dvds as well as this newly released version of the original. Might be a good deal for someone who has yet to purchase part 4 or 5. Cheers!

    there's a workprint of Hellraiser 4 out there. it's quite a bit different than the theatrical cut, as expected. there's a dedicated hellraiser site out there (url escapes me at the moment) with pictures and video clips from this workprint.

    I think it's for people that don't own it, and aren't huge fans that have to have the best edition. if you didn't own it, and wanted to check out the original before you saw the remake, it's only costing you like $5 to buy it. Not much more then renting it. Atleast it will get some newbies checking it out, and hopefully appreciating the original for the greatness that it is.

    and yes, it sucks they didn't come out with an ultimate edition with the colours fixed and the extra footage they found. but again, how many times do we have to buy this movie, it has been released a gazillion times already. I think they should just hold off and released an ultimate edition when there is a clear winenr in this stupid format war.

    I had planned on going to see the remake anyway and I already have the LE but I bought this re-release yesterday at Best Buy for $9.99 that included the free movie ticket... and that is about what I would have had to pay for just the movie ticket... so I feel like I got the DVD for free.

    The shiny shit on the cover looks cool. Charles Cyphers had a copy at his table at Horrorfind and I checked it out.
