You think they would've announced them at the Con.

Well, it does say Not Final Art – so perhaps Anchor Bay will get a clue and not use it.

Then again, Anchor Bay never listens to fans anymore, so knowing them it will probably turn out to be the final artwork.

This should be an alternate audio track : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZ1M3P1isHA& (spoilers if you haven't seen Halloween)

Unfortunately that cuts off RIGHT when...
Spoiler:
I wanted to see how the audience would react the most; when it fades to black and the audience realizes there won't be closure.

From HalloweenMovies Facebook page!:

"For this very special release, Anchor Bay and Trancas International went back to the vaults to present this legendary terror classic as never before, including creating an all-new HD transfer personally supervised by the film’s original cinematographer, Academy-Award nominee Dean Cundey, a new audio mix (as well as the original mono audio), a brand-new feature length audio commentary by writer/director John Carpenter and star Jamie Lee Curtis, an all-new bonus feature with Ms. Curtis, as well as selected legacy bonus features from previous ABE releases. Available in a collectible limited-edition book-style package (available only for the first printing) with 11 pages of archival photos, an essay by Halloween historian Stef Hutchinson and specially commissioned cover art by Jay Shaw.



“Anchor Bay Entertainment has been home to Halloween for almost 20 years,” noted Malek Akkad, President of Trancas International Films and son of Moustapha Akkad. “I’m so happy that we’re partnering with them to present the definitive edition of what is widely acknowledged as one of the seminal horror films of the 20th century.”

Bonus features on Halloween 35th Anniversary Blu-ray include:

All-new commentary track with writer/director John Carpenter and star Jamie Lee Curtis;
“The Night She Came Home” new featurette with Jamie Lee Curtis (HD);
On Location;
Trailers;
TV & Radio Spots;
Additional Scenes from TV Version"


I do hope more/previous extras are included.

Why can't AB release an "Ultimate" version like they did with Dawn and Evil Dead? Speaking of, I wish those versions would get on BD, but I don't ever see that happening.

Kind of a shame they're not including the TV version. I'm not too torn up about it as I still own the '99 LE and will never be getting rid of it. As rxfiend said, why the commitment to ultimate editions eludes most companies is beyond me.

I long ago quit asking why Anchor Bay does the things they do. They just really don't make any sense these days.

Has this even been confirmed yet as being any more than a single-disc release?

If they did an "ultimate" release then they might have a hard time milking fans for a 40th anniversary and other re-issues...

That's what I hate about Anchor Bay; they're too busy re-releasing films they've put out over a dozen times that they end up neglecting the other films they own...like for instance Phantasm.

Anchor Bay has really gone to shit since Starz took over. The only horror related things they release are 40 editions of Evil Dead and Halloween along side some terrible direct-to-video modern horror.

It's a real shame since back in the early 2000's because if you went to the store and saw that sail boat on a DVD you know you were getting a quality release. Now they're a label I avoid all together.

I agree but if people would stop buying the 12th edition of the same movie AB might get the picture and try some updated releases!
