Its the "Horror Legacy Series" version that was released only in Canada. Its more the slip cover that I need since its just the single disc release. Though, I still might track down another Limited Edition. It seems that there are variations of the postcard that was included in each box. There is one of John Carpenter 7 Jamie Lee Curtis, and another of Donald Pleasence and the Nurse sitting in the car. I actually have to go pick up a UMD copy, but not to worried about that one.
Here is what I have...
Original 1997 release
1999 Limited Edition 2-Disc w/ Lenticular cover
1999 single disc w/ Lenticular cover
2000 release
2001 Extended Edition
2001 Extended Edition w/ original film cell
2003 25th Anniversary Edition
2007 Remastered Edition w/ holofoil O-ring
2007 Blu-Ray release
2008 30th Anniversary Box set

I'll start on getting the old VHS and LDs pretty soon as well.

I was trying to track those down as well, even started a thread about it in hopes of at least getting scans of all the cards, and to find out how many and what they were. Someone said they got one in the single disc version.

I have the Anchor Bay WS VHS in the clamshell. If you're interested PM me. I'd let it go for cheap to good home. Here's some scans of what I'm talking about. The inlay cover looks much better than the scans show, these have lots of glare from the case as I didn't feel like going all out and making perfect scans, just something to show. There's no fading or anything like that even though the pictures kinda look faded near the spine, it's just glare.
Front
Back

and the inside of cover since it has a little bit of water damage. This is almost unnoticable on the outside as it's all on the bottom where it's mostly black. There is a slight crease in the back on the picture of Judy, and it blends in with the creases on her clothes. Nothing got into the case and the tape is perfect. It also has an order form/postcard for other CE VHS's.

Cool, thanks Dave, Let me get back to you, I thought I had that one, but have to take a trip to my storage unit to see if I still have it or if I gave it away or what not.

Just secured this baby of the VHS variety


Limited to 30,000 copies

Whao, that sure takes me back.

And yeah, the late '90s. I also remember Anchor Bay clamshell VHS tape being the first Widescreen edition of something I bought. It was in the mini mall where I shopped at a nice Suncoast Video. Damn how I spent so much time blind buying there for almost three whole years. Also soon after was another Anchor Bay title, followed by Dark City the following year.

Gotta say that admitedly, while cashing in, I'll admit that Anchor Bay/STARZ has been good to the original seminal classic that is Halloween. Between then and the awesome two-disc Halloween: 25 Years of Terror documentary, which is entertaining and informative, we all pretty much know all there is to know on the original Carpenter classic.

Hmmm I guess it's been a while since I've bought a DVD...

Last one I purchased was the My Bloody Valentine special edition the day it came out. A week later I got it signed by George Mihalka and Neil Affleck :-D

Halloween has been good to Anchor Bay!! Its amazing how often they go to the well and reissue this and Army of Darkness. I am a perfect example of the patsy that they are directing these reissues towards as I have every release of both films. Count me as one of the goofs that will buy the AOD: Screwhead Edition.
