HALLOWEEN: The Complete Collection Coming to Blu-ray 9/23

Last year, the horror classic "Halloween" celebrated 35 years of terror for those willing to partake in its vision of unrelenting horror. But that was only the beginning of the celebration. What producers Moustapha Akkad, Debra Hill and Irwin Yablans, writer/director John Carpenter and stars Jamie Lee Curtis & Donald Pleasence started in 1978 has transformed into one of the most durable, iconic - and copiously studied -- horror film franchises ever created. Before Jason, before Freddy, and before Jigsaw, there was...Michael. Over the years, audiences have lived and relived the terrors of Michael Myers through ten feature films, as well as various re-edits and alternate versions. Yet to date, the complete saga of Michael Myers could only be told in pieces, in individual DVD and Blu-ray releases, with the rights spread across multiple home entertainment studios.

Until now...

Through the unprecedented collaboration of rival home entertainment companies Anchor Bay Entertainment and Scream Factory - the leading purveyors in horror home entertainment -"Halloween: The Complete Collection" Blu-ray box sets arrive September 23rd.

For the legions of Halloween fans, the Deluxe Edition boasts 15 discs and contains all the "Halloween" feature films - "Halloween," "Halloween II," "Halloween III: Season of the Witch," "Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers," "Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers," "Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers," "Halloween H20," "Halloween: Resurrection," "Rob Zombie's Halloween" and "Halloween II". The set includes the never before released producers cut of "Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers" as well as the ultra-rare network TV version of the original "Halloween," the network TV version of "Halloween II," plus the unrated versions of "Rob Zombie's Halloween" and "Halloween II". It is packed with hours of brand new bonus features, including new interviews with cast and crew from the entire franchise!

In response to years of fan feedback, the first "Halloween" will now also include the original mono audio track and the set will include both versions of the original "Halloween," the original Blu-ray release and the recently remastered 35th Anniversary version with the mono track added back in! It also comes with a limited edition 40-page book written by Michael Gingold of Fangoria Magazine. The collectible packaging will include a newly commissioned illustration on the outer case and each film will be in its own black Blu-ray case with the original theatrical one sheet as the key art. This deluxe set carries an SRP of $169.99.

"This compilation is the ultimate collector's item for fans of the 'Halloween' films and a testament to all the wonderful talent that have worked on them," remarked Malek Akkad, President of Trancas International Films and son of series producer Moustapha Akkad. "The partnership between Anchor Bay Entertainment and Scream Factory to present fans for The First Time with all the Halloween films in one definitive package is a tribute to everyone - including my father - who made these films the terrifying classics they are today."

The 10-disc Edition includes the original theatrical versions of the "Halloween" films and will include select bonus features. SRP is $129.99.
