When Shout! Factory announced their exclamation point lacking Scream Factory, I was excited. Shout! has been responsible for many of my favorite retro movie and TV releases over the last few years. So when they announced that they would be “doing horror” with their Scream Factory label I was excited. Of course, the proof is in the pudding and I patiently waited for some titles to land on my doorstep. Well the wait is over with the extras packed and well mastered Halloween II.
What do I think? I love it! Why? Well it looks great AND it is filled with fun extras including:
• The two-Disc Set Includes Theatrical Version And The Television Cut With Added Footage Not Seen In The Theatrical Version
• Audio Commentary With Director Rick Rosenthal And Actor Leo Rossi (Theatrical Version)
• Audio Commentary With Actor/Stunt Coordinator Dick Warlock (Theatrical Version)
• The Nightmare Isn’t Over!: The Making Of Halloween II – Featuring interviews with Director Rick Rosenthal, Actor/Stunt Coordinator Dick Warlock, Actors Lance Guest, Leo Rossi, Nancy Stephens, Executive Producer Irwin Yablans, Director of Photography Dean Cundey, Co-Composer Alan Howarth and more!
• Horror’s Hallowed Grounds: The Locations Of Halloween II – Host Sean Clark revisits the original shooting locations of the film
• Deleted Scenes With Optional Audio Commentary From Director Rick Rosenthal
• Alternate Ending With Optional Audio Commentary From Director Rick Rosenthal
• Theatrical Trailer
• TV & Radio Spots
• Still Gallery
A lot huh? This all feels pretty deluxe and a feast for people who want to get in the Halloween spirit. Plus if you fall asleep while watching it, you will wake up to this…
