Anchor Bays has to add something to sell their fish once again.

That price is an outrage. But I preordered anyway. Go Cundey go!

Groan. Not September. There's so many damn Blu-ray's coming out in September. I'll hold out for as long as I can on this one.

1 Movie, 2 Cuts? The TV version in HD would be nice...though it may be just SD.
That's not the official artwork. That's been up on their site for well over a year now and is admittedly fan made.

My bad then. I swear I looked just a week or two ago and there was no image on there.

I really hope they just use the original poster art and not try too hard.

I don't want to see anything other than the original art, It's up there with Jaws as one of the most iconic posters in cinema history. Just stick a 35th anniversary along the top or bottom in small writing

I'm really surprised that some of you are so interested in the TV version. I'd love to hear why. The extra Smith's Grove scenes totally destroy the rhythm of the opening chapters. Judged outside the context of the film I kind of like the scene of Loomis talking to Michael in his room. But the movie plays much better going straight from Haddonfield to the thunderstorm scene. And the later scene with Jamie Lee and P.J. Soles is pure filler.

I truthfully don't care if they put those scenes on the new disc at all. I have the old DVD and I don't feel the need to watch that stuff on any kind of regular basis. I'm sure everyone knows that the added scenes aren't even legitimate outtakes. Carpenter filmed that stuff to pad the run-time for TV while they were doing Halloween II. Those scenes were not part of the original script. And that cut of the film was never endorsed by anyone involved with Halloween. It was a bastardized, neutered version created to get the film past the network censors. If the edited film was long enough to fill the network run-time slot that material never would have been filmed.

With so many prior releases of Halloween the only extra material that interests me is the B roll footage (which won't be included). I even question the need for a new commentary track. Between the earlier commentary and the numerous feature-length documentaries I really question what else Carpenter and Curtis can add--especially now that they're so much older and farther removed from the production. NEW COMMENTARY just seems like a cover banner justification for double-dipping. And a Cundey-supervised transfer is more than enough justification. All I need from this release is a transfer that properly represents the original look of the film.

But I am legitimately curious about what you guys think. Please tell me whether or not the TV version is important to you, and if so, why?

Well any additional time with P.J. Soles is a bonus for me! Huge crush on her back in the day. And when I was a kid and first saw this movie I saw the TV version - I did not see the theatrical version until I was older. And it is just nice to have both.

I always seen the tv version, so when I finally seen the R rated version on the movie channel in summer of 85. I thought it was strange that tv scenes were cut out. when really they weren't..But in 85 I didn't have the internet to explain that to me..

Yeah, back when this was first airing on TV before home video really took off, it's the only version most of us saw. It's definitely a nostalgia thing. I can remember never wanting to go trick or treating if it was on.
