Michael Meyers returns again this Fall.  No, not the actor, but the infamous serial killer.  Anchor Bay Entertainment will release the thirty-fifth anniversary edition of the classic slasher/horror flick, Halloween on Blu-ray on Tuesday, September 24th.  The release comes just in time for the countdown to October 31st.  The timeless film was originally created on a budget of three hundred and twenty-five thousand dollars, and has gone on to earn millions worldwide thanks to its original theatrical and later home releases since its original theatrical premiere.

Malek Assad is the President of Trancas International Films and son of the original film’s executive producer Moustapha Akkad.  He shared his thoughts on the upcoming thirty-fifth anniversary release. “Anchor Bay Entertainment has been home to Halloween for almost 20 years,” he said.  “I’m so happy that we’re partnering with them to present the definitive edition of what is widely acknowledged as one of the seminal horror films of the 20th century.”

Halloween was the starring debut for now veteran actress Jamie Lee Curtis (A Fish Called Wanda, Freaky Friday, True Lies).  Along with making her an instant household name, Halloween also solidified the careers of those behind the cameras including writer/director John Carpenter, producer Debra Hill, and film editor/production designer Tommy Lee Wallace (Halloween III: Season of the Witch, It).

The new thirty-fifth anniversary Blu-ray edition of Halloween will include as bonuses:

  • All-new commentary track with writer/director John Carpenter and star Jamie Lee Curtis;
  • “The Night She Came Home” new featurette with Jamie Lee Curtis (HD);
  • On Location;
