    With the official announcing of a HALLOWEEN II: 30TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION Blu-ray by Universal I'm sure we're all clamouring for the rest of the series to hit Blu-ray to join the releases of the original and the three Dimension sequels. Which yet to be released Halloween sequel do you want to see on the format most?

    Definitely Halloween III because it's the epitome of the under appreciated sequel. Halloween II, while I'm definitely up for buying, was a pretty unnecessary follow-up. The first film is much stronger because it leaves you with the impression that The Shape has escaped and could be anywhere... even inside your house!!! I always loved that, but Halloween II blows the concept by continuing the story and killing Michael off properly. Until the next movie, that is.

    Definitely another vote for Halloween III: Season of the Witch

    I've always loved it since first viewing it as a kid. We NEED Silver Shamrock in HD!

    Halloween 3, its one of my all time favorite horror films. I just hope Universal gives it some kind of extra features like a Tom Aktins commentary! :D

    What, no Resurrection? I wants mah Busta Rhymes in HD! :lol:

    Part 4 gets my vote, as it's my favorite Myers sequel. Of course, I want to eventually have them all on Blu (hopefully in better form than the Echo Bridge releases).

    Me too, except I'm the lone person on this board that finds Resurrection fun and can look past Busta to an enjoyable slasher flick. It also is probably l;eft off with 6 and 7 due to the Canadian BD that carries all 3 films.

    I wanted 2 the most, now it's 4, but from a decent company. Hopefully Anchor Bay still owns it.

    As a diehard fan of this series I'll buy them all. But 4 is my favorite sequel.

    II and III should look really spectacular. There aren't many combinations better than Dean Cundey and Blu-ray. And here's hoping they check with Cundey before they release any more of his Halloween films on Blu-ray. Another Halloween color timing screw-up could send me over the edge.

    Halloween III. The cinematography is so much better than H2 (mainly because Tommy Lee Wallace actually TRUSTED Cundey to do a good job), and honestly, I like it quite a bit more than H2.

    Halloween II (1981). The hospital setting worked so well. This one creeped me the hell out as a small child. Dick Warlock did a wonderful job at playing Michael Myers and the mask looked really good. I can't wait to see it in 2.35:1 1080p.

    I find H2 works well because it picks up directly where the first left off and manages to carry over quite a bit of the first film's feel and atmosphere. When seen back to back, H2 does exactly what you said (he could be anywhere) by having him stalk the back alleys and into the old couple's home and then Alice's. It purports that Laurie's endless night is far from over, though it does lose steam and starts to feel like it's own movie once it hits the hospital.

    That said, since II is already coming out, I'd like to see 4 released, if just for the opening sequence in HD.

    It's funny that i picked up the Halloween 2 Ultimate DVD a few weeks a ago at a convention in NJ. I'm hopeing the added scenes get spliced in or shown separately in this next blu-ray.

    Halloween II - for me, it's the single scariest installment in the franchise. Basically, it's one extended chase scene, and one that takes place in a particularly effective setting.

    I will probably pick up Season of the Witch too, but I've always had mixed feelings about it. Not because Michael Myers isn't in it, but because of the severe lapses in logic (worst in the series) and the fact that it can't quite sustain the excellent sense of dread established in the first ten minutes.
