Want to be on a super special DVD dedicated to the Halloween franchise? I just received word that the Halloween: 25 Years of Terror DVD will include a ‘FANS OF HALLOWEEN’ featurette, which will be a montage of fans from ALL AROUND THE WORLD… as many faces and voices from as many parts of the world as possible… THIS MEANS YOU! Click here for entry details or read on for the press release for the actual DVD.
‘Halloween: 25 Years Of Terror’ is a documentary that chronicles the history of the ‘Halloween’ horror film series from its inception in 1978 through to the present day. For the first time, members of the cast and crew, critics and fans are brought together for the ultimate retrospective chronicling the films, their influence on popular culture, and their contribution to the horror genre.
Pulling from a variety of sources, including behind-the-scenes footage, deleted scenes, and over fifty brand-new and unseen interviews, all eight of the films so far are covered. The films are analysed as the behind-the-scenes story is told.
Written and produced by Anthony Masi (Halloween Webmaster and Co-Chairman of the H25 Convention) and Stefan Hutchinson (Author of ‘Halloween: One Good Scare’) and directed by the latter, the film is a collaborative effort between many people involved with the franchise, including Executive Producer for the project, Malek Akkad.
Filmed over the past year, the film revisits many filming locations and includes exclusive footage from the ‘Halloween Returns To Haddonfield 25th Anniversary Convention’. ‘Halloween: 25 Years Of Terror’ promises to be the definitive study of a horror phenomenon.
