Last year we got Halloween 1-5 in 4K UHD from Scream Factory. They were one of the highest-selling releases of the year. Getting the first five only means that the next films in the series are coming. Today, Scream Factory announced a second set, Halloween 4K Collection (1995-2002). The new set gives us Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (theatrical and Producer’s Cut), Halloween H20, and Halloween Resurrection. This new set releases on October 4th, 2022.
Halloween is one of the longest-running and most storied franchises in horror history, so Scream Factory upgrading the series in beautiful 4K quality is a huge deal. These three films (really four, because the Producer’s Cut is so different from the theatrical) aren’t part of the brightest section of the series, but they have merits. They see the final performance in Donald Pleasence‘s career in The Curse of Michael Myers, a new beginning for Michael and Laurie Strode in H20, and well, Resurrection is at least fun to watch for a laugh.
Also, we get brand new art for each release and a special edition box to house all of them.
Special Features And Synopsis For Each Film
This set includes all the previously released extras and also includes new extras that will be announced at a later date.
Halloween: The Curse Of Michael Myers
In a single horrifying night, Michael Myers’ reign of terror changed Halloween forever! Now, six years after he was presumed dead in a fire, Michael has returned to kill again – and this time there’s no escape! As his fury builds to a spine-tingling climax, the long-hidden secrets of the screen’s most maniacal murderer are shockingly revealed. Donald Pleasence (Halloween), Paul Rudd (Anchorman: The Legend Of Ron Burgundy, Ant-Man), Marianne Hagan (Stake Land), and Mitchell Ryan (Lethal Weapon) star.
Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later
Now the headmistress of a private school, Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) is still struggling with the horrifying, 20-year-old memories of the maniacal killer Michael Myers when he suddenly appears again with a vengeance! And this Halloween, Laurie’s rebellious son (Josh Hartnett, 30 Days Of Night), his girlfriend (Michelle Williams, Venom), and their friends will become Michael’s newest victims unless Laurie can conquer her fears and put evil in its place once and for all. LL Cool J (NCIS: Los Angeles), Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises, Inception), Nancy Stephens (Halloween), and Janet Leigh (Psycho, The Fog) also star.
The reality programmers at DangerTainment have selected Rudy (Sean Patrick Thomas, Dracula 2000), Bill (Thomas Ian Nicholas, American Pie), and a group of thrill-seeking teenagers to spend one fun-filled night in the childhood home of serial killer Michael Myers. But the planned live broadcast turns deadly when their evening of excitement becomes a night of horror as Michael himself decides to crash the party. Halloween: Resurrection also stars Bianca Kajlich (Bring It On), Katee Sackhoff (Riddick, Battlestar Galactica), Busta Rhymes (Narc), and Tyra Banks, along with a special appearance by Jamie Lee Curtis.
PRE-ORDER NOW to get THREE EXCLUSIVE posters featuring the new artwork for all three films in the Halloween 4K Collection.
While this might be a lower point in the series, especially with Resurrection, I’ll still be picking these up to complete the 4K collection. You can never have too many Halloween movies.
