Holy. Crap.

Mind blown, no?!

    I really wish they would release the producers cut as s stand along blu ray. That’s the only thing I really want from this set, as I own every other movie on blu ray.

    • Trent Owens

      yea i have 1, 2, and 3 special editions already the producers cut of 6 is all im really wanting out of this and 120 for one blu ray is a little steep

      • RidleyScottIsADirector@gmail.c

        But you get a great-looking, definitive box set.

    • Krug09

      I own 1-3 on Blu ray (part 1 i actually have two different blu ray copies) and the rest on DVD. They all look good except for H20 that one looks like shit!!! I am only interested in H6PC. I don’t own the remake and sequel though. I hear a lot of people bitch when they double dip… which that collection is. It looks like its only available with it which blows. Looking at the line of up of “new” features. Its only new audio commentary on h1, new making of for part 4,5 and of course H6PC other then that? No new transfers for any of them. I heard the H20 (i checked blu ray.com too) blu ray is awful… its the same transfer on this collection…

      • macguffin54

        Are there going to be makings of for 4 & 5? I don’t recall seeing them on the list of specs.

        Update: nevermind. I see them now. They are on the bonus disc.

        • Bouncy X

          yep, they’re included on the bonus disc. you get the original ones from the last release but also new ones done by Shout.

  • RidleyScottIsADirector@gmail.c

    That’s what I’m talking about.

  • joesey

    it’s about fucken time! I’ve been waiting for almost two decades to see this version

  • SuperKilla

    I’m hoping for a commentary with Paul Rudd, I think it would be interesting to hear his thoughts on this film.

    • Krug09

      If you check the specs, Rudd is not on the commentary.

    • Anthony Gulino

      Paul Rudd is stuck in romantic comedy hell… his handlers wouldnt let him touch this with a ten foot pole… It would of been interesting anyways..

      • SuperKilla

        Yeah that’s probably true but I’m sure Scream Factory tried, they know what special features customers want on their discs.

    • Russell McKenzie

      Seriously doubt he would even want to comment on the film, as he has more or less distanced himself from it like quite a few of the other actors have due to the tumultuous filming experience they went through on it (including the reshoots for the theatrical cut too). Knowing Rudd though, if he was on Conan promoting it, he would just show that same clip he shows from Mac and Me like he does all the time to troll Conan.

      • SuperKilla

        The re-shoots are one of the things I’d like to hear him talk about.

        • Russell McKenzie

          Me too. But it’s probably because of those re-shoots and the fact that it was not a very pleasant movie making experience from what a lot of the cast and crew have said (a lot of this was most likely due to Joe Chappelle and the utter disrespect he showed in regards to Donald Pleasence. He is quoted as saying he thought his stuff as Loomis was “boring” and that’s why he cut a lot of it out of the theatrical version), which would most likely not want Rudd to be involved. Or he’s just really busy with his career.

      • RidleyScottIsADirector@gmail.c

        Man, a bunch of ignorant people commenting on poor Paul Rudd. Way to assume.

        C: I should add that your track record in flawed. The one person you did not work with again was Michael Myers [Paul's first film role was in HALLOWEEN 6: THE CURSE OF MICHAEL MYERS]. In fact, you haven’t done a horror film since your life intersected with the HALLOWEEN franchise.

        PR: No, I haven’t!

        C: Was that not a good experience as a young actor?

        PR: You know what? The funny thing is that it was good. That was the very first movie I’d ever done, and I’m really thrilled that I was able to do it. There was something trippy about working on a HALLOWEEN movie and seeing Michael Myers and seeing that face that I’d seen in movies and meet George Wilbur, who played him. And standing at the craft service table having coffee with Michael Myers. That’s was too cool. When it first came out, I was in my early 20s. It was a time in my life when I was really…precious [laughs].

        I thought, not that I was into taking myself too seriously or anything, but I so badly wanted to be in really cool things, and all of my favorite things as far as music and movies were all kind of, you know, independent movies or foreign movies. My favorite bands were these sort of alternative indie rockers, and stuff like that. I just really wanted to be liked [laughs], and I think I probably took some things a little too seriously, as it’s easy to do when you’re that age.

        And when I first saw HALLOWEEN 6, I remember thinking, Oh God, this movie’s not good, and I was really kind of bummed out. In fact when we first started making it, I remember thinking, Oh, this is the one that’s going to be different! [laughs] I enjoyed making it; I thought it was really, really fun. But then I thought, Oh God, are people going to think I’m a joke? Am I ever going to get work as an actor after this comes out? I have since changed my tune; I love it. I’m honored to be part of a franchise that has lasted that long, that has that many devotees, and I couldn’t be happier that I can say that my first movie is a HALLOWEEN movie.

        C: Well if the acting thing ever dries up, you can book yourself on the convention circuit.

        PR: [laughs] Which I’ve never even been asked to be a part of, which is kind of depressing.

        C: I can make that happen for you if you want.

        PR: I should be careful what I wish for. [laughs]

  • Khy

    Haven’t seen the producer’s cut in full so this will be a GREAT treat for me. HD? Hell yes! Fans have been waiting for this for nearly 20 years.

  • homodrome

    I hate how they are just releasing this as part of the box set. I would pay for it seperately, but I don’t really need to spend over 100$ just to get the one movie. I’ve got every other one except Curse.

    • J Jett

      homodrome, (i will get flamed for saying this…) i’m sure right after this collection’s release there will be other ways……cough….to get this new Producer’s cut….cough…..just sayin’.

      • Russell McKenzie

        Oh yeah. Something tells me that the HD remaster of this will be heavily DL’ed by those who don’t want to spend the high $$$ for the box set. To me personally, seeing that pic of the remaster has convinced me it’s time to finally get a Blu-Ray player since I seriously doubt they will release it on DVD as a standalone.

  • Sick_skwerl

    I’m sure after the box set comes out, if you wait awhile they will (eventually) release H6 separately

  • http://moviepilot.com/desolateearth K. Lee Adams

    Both versions of this movie suck. So many people said the producer’s cut was better but when I saw it it was just as shitty as the theatrical cut. Any movie where Michael Myers is meant to have fathered a child with his niece is ridiculous.

  • mfcmk1

    Really, really excited for this! However, I am still upset that the new box set does not contain any of the found footage from the original Halloween. Don May Jr. or whoever it is that has all the unseen footage should release it for the fans to see.

  • http://HalloweenDailyNews.com HalloweenDaily

    The must-own release of the year.

  • chris hayes

    Been waiting almost 20yrs for the Producers Cut…about ‘F’ing time…

    • Saleem E. Frazer

      It still amazes me that they went ahead and polished it over after all these years.

  • WalkingDeadGuy

    I’ve been holding out for a proper HD release so much that I avoided seeing the bootleg copy. So stoked that this is included in the collection :-)

    • Saleem E. Frazer

      Unfortunately, I had to watch the bootleg version at the time I knew it even existed, but I will be watching these new cuts.

  • J Jett

    this is not a HALLOWEEN movie i even acknowledge (i hated it) but i’m happy for fans of the film that they are getting this new cleaned up version! the difference between the bootleg version and this new one is HUGE HUGE HUGE! that’s awesome!

  • ThunderDragoon

    That is beautiful. I can’t wait to own this box set.

  • Anthony Gulino

    I really wanted to like this film, every 5 years or so I revisit it always hoping I’m gonna feel diferently about it and its always the same disappointment.. The most heartbreaking aspect of this film is that it was Donald Pleasance last hurrah and it was by far the worst of the lot of the films he participated in though no fault of his own.. it’s a shame his last participation in the franchise was a dog and wasnt around to share in the success of H2O… There is so many things wrong with this flick that there is really NO cut thats gonna help this thing..It was a stupid idea and the only thing worse than this would be Busta Rhymes karate chopping Michael Meyers.. Fvck!ng awful !!!

    • Saleem E. Frazer

      Busta Rhymes doing anything with Michael Myers was the worst thing ever. I’m a huge fan of Busta Rhymes as an entertaining artists (during the earlier years anyway), but when he was placed in the Halloween franchise, my first reaction was “The hell why?”. I just think that entire 8th installment was a major disappointment and “F U” to the core fans. I did however enjoyed the intro/Laurie’s death. That was the only redeeming factor.

      • Anthony Gulino

        The intro with jaime Lee was by far the high point of the film..

  • c-s-a78

    we cant even get h20 on bluray here yet!!!!!(im in Australia)!!!

  • VictorCrowley

    I’ve always felt the original cut of this film (what we know as the ‘Producer’s Cut’) was always a solid sequel. Possibly the best one aside from the original H2. Did NOT expect that ending and seeing as how they went ahead and abandoned the Thorn storyline and made H20 three years later, they might as well had just released the original H6 intact.

    So happy it’s finally getting the proper treatment and will be the main reason I pick up this box set.

  • scooby279 .

    love part 6! the mood of the movie is creepy, the music is awesome! cant wait for this box set!

  • Dennis Giles

    I personally can only re-watch Halloween and Halloween 2 ..Season of the Witch was a strange one.

  • lgb

    Oh my god this will be awesome, I happily got the boxed set (Well, it’s a christmas present) and this is just making me more excited for it to turn up

  • WilkioMusic

    The amount of money anchor bay are going to get out of this set, jeez!

  • The Big Valbowski

    Definitely will be trading in my Halloween & Halloween 2 Scream Factory Blu Ray’s for credit towards this box set. I’ve always wanted them in one set, with this producers cut it really makes it the one to own.
