  • Chad Spiegel

    I really wanted to see the Producer’s Cut of Halloween 6 but this set is kind of overkill… Too rich for my blood. And what’s with the TV cut of Halloween 2? I don’t know what’s different about it and was hoping someone might clear that up for me.

  • Dave

    Sad that they are only releasing so few, and with that price I would never rush to pick it up. Hopefully they will release the Halloween 6 Producer’s Cut by itself one day here soon.

    • Shawn Savage

      It’s not limited to 500.

      • Dave

        Then why did Scream Factory say it would be?

        • Shawn Savage

          They didn’t. They set that the set that is exclusive to Shoutfactory.com, that comes with an exclusive lithograph is limited to 500, which has been sold out. As you can see, they are still taking pre-orders for the deluxe edition on amazon, and every other retailer. The lithograph is limited to 500 copies, and sold out. The Deluxe edition box set is widely available.

          • Dave

            Okay, I see now. Thanks for clarifying that.

  • David Angle

    This set isn’t overkill. Its decently priced. But in a limited 500 set? That will sell out WAY before September and the chances of a regular nobody like me to get it will be slim to none and it truly makes me want to cry.

    • WheatBandit

      That was only for the Scream Factory Deluxe Set that came with an exclusive Litho. The regular deluxe set is not limited.

  • Caitlyn Gessing-Putz

    Any way to get this box set without Rob Zombie’s bullshit included? :)

  • KrisXX

    Halloween 2 TV Cut on DVD? Ugh. Was hoping for an all Blu-ray set. And weren’t we suppose to get BOTH cuts of the Rob Zombie movies? RZ Halloween only listed as unrated, where is theatrical cut? And RZ H2 is only theatrical? Where is the unrated cut?

    • c-s-a78

      yeah that sucks,also I hope the h20 version will be better then the bluray version floating around!!!its very bad quality!!!

    • John Connor

      It’s the same RZ unrated cut discs that are available now. The theatrical cuts are not in this set. Unrated only.

  • archie

    how much is the set???

  • REC03

    this set is only $118 on Amazon if u pre-order. a damn good deal if u ask me.

  • Daniel Rodrigues

    I’m not a big fan of the franchise but this is a musthave item for any collector… Sadly I won’t have the money…

  • Khy

    Damn, HUGE features for H6. Definitely getting these.

  • JunkFX

    be sure to read up on this. the “limited to 500” copies is only from Shout Factory and are already sold out. This isn’t going to be that rare of a set. If it was that rare I’d buy it in a heart beat, but now, I’ll hold off

    • jason1978

      I kind of worried there for a second when it said limited to 500.

  • http://doomas10 doomas10

    I am mostly excited to see Disc 13, the making of or RZ’s Halloween as it still remains for me one of the best horror remakes outhere. In addition, there is a lot to love in the edition! Already pre-ordered it, I am going to devour the extras as Halloween is one my favourite film franchises ever!

    • https://twitter.com/UgandaWash jasonlives314

      That disc is included with the original blu ray release of Rob’s Halloween and it’s is a really fantastic watch. It honestly gave me an appreciation for what they did with that movie where I didn’t have much appreciation before.

      • http://doomas10 doomas10

        Unfortunately for us here in the UK, so such release has seen the light of the day :/ Rob’s Halloween is region locked so cannot ordered from US. I really hope we can get a proper edition here or I guess I have to buy a region A blu ray player!

        • https://twitter.com/UgandaWash jasonlives314

          Oh, yeah……I see your point. I would love to get a multi-region player for all of those Arrow releases! I think as horror fans we’re all going to have to get them just for the amazing releases offered in other parts of the world!

          • http://doomas10 doomas10

            indeed, I will agree with you on that ^_^ Horror geeks unite!

  • ThunderDragoon

    Come to papa!!!

  • VictorCrowley

    I remember seeing the teaser trailer to “Halloween 666: The Origin Of Michael Myers” on the Pulp Fiction VHS I believe. Got me hyped for the movie, then *insert fart sound*.

    Also, I can’t believe the RZ remake isn’t gonna have the theatrical cut on it. I much prefer that over the director’s cut with the ridiculous rape scene. Big fail on that. Would bet $$$ his part 2 won’t have the theater version either. Kinda reminds me of George Lucas and the original Star Wars trilogy with all the crap they added in after the new prequels came out. It’s like “No, THIS is how it happened! Your memory is irrelevant.”

  • OldAsMyers

    Ok let’s be honest, give my comment a thumbs up if you’re really just looking forward to buying this for the H6 Producer’s Cut & extras. We’ve been able to get most of these other items in various editions for years, but the H6 cut was always out of our hands aside from the bootleg copy which was the quality you would expect from a bootleg at the time. We always want what we can’t have, and now 20 years later that one piece can now be ours. Speaking of H6, I think it’s funny that H6, probably the crappiest entry of them all, has the most emerging for this special box set, lol.

    • Humberto Dellamorte

      for begging, you only get thumbs down

  • Adam Clifton

    Is it coming to Australia in region 4?

  • jasonlives314

    The big question I have here is, and so far neither Anchor Bay nor Scream Factory has answered, are H6(theatrical), H20 and Resurrection new transfers or are they the shitty Echo Bridge transfers? It looks like all the other discs aside from the H6 Producer’s cut disc and disc 15 are just re-packages. I really hope those are new transfers, otherwise I’m basically spending $140 for the Producer’s cut of H6 and 1 bonus disc. I already own everything else.

    • Krug09

      This is EXACTLY my thinking and i have said this before. Are we getting better transfers of the ones that need it? Or are we paying for one new disc: Halloween 6 PC w/ extras for $140? …No thanks.

    • DeadInHell

      This has also been my question. After reading this I’m optimistic.

      In the bullet points for H20 they list: “Presented in the correct 2.35:1 Aspect Ratio”. This seems to imply that they know the Echo Bridge transfer is, well, incorrect. I would guess that at least for H20 it will be a new transfer, since the Echo Bridge didn’t have the right aspect ratio.

      I also just want them to release these new transfers as single discs. I don’t feel like paying for the whole thing just to get a decent bluray of H20. I already own the collector’s editions of I and II, which makes this collection not so appealing to me given how little interest I have in owning the other sequels and the terrible remakes. The Producer’s Cut of 6 is obviously of interest, but I’m not sure I need to own it. What we got was obviously hacked to bits. But the last thing I would say about the theatrical cut is that it needs more druids…

  • baronterror

    I am very confused. So there are 3 versions of the original movie? 1st is the one with the tv stuff added in and 2nd is theatrical but only in the delux, with the 15th with bonus features has the tv stuff edited into the theatrical? Or what does this mean? I dont understand. I’ve been looking for the one that has the extra stuff filmed during the second movie filming put back in, and it sounds like we have 2 of em. One just tv edit and one with everything worked in? Help?

    Regardless I’m buying that full delux edition.

  • Javi Simon

    I wonder if these discs would eventually be sold individually. I’d love to get my paws on the Producer’s Cut of Part 6 (On DVD).

  • SXiPPY

    Why the bonus disc with features the could easily be put on Halloween 4 & 5 respectively? Especially Halloween 4, considering it only has 2 audio commentaries as added features. While I do want this, I just feel as though a more all inclusive definitive package with all the features from each release could have been made, especially if I’m dishing out well over $100.
