Lock your doors! Bolt your windows! Turn off the lights! It’s going to be a Blu Halloween this October! In the next couple of months, fans of the original Halloween series will finally be able to own all eight films on the high definition Blu-ray platform.

Following the controversial release of Universal’s Halloween 2 disc last year (which you can read about here), Shout! Factory’s new genre label Scream Factory is attempting to right some wrongs with a fully loaded Blu-ray/DVD combo of that 1981 sequel to John Carpenter's classic Halloween. In addition to a feature-length audio commentary with director Rick Rosenthal, the package also includes a Dick Warlock commentary, a new making-of documentary and the highly anticipated TV cut.

The big news is that along with Halloween 2, Shout! was able to secure the rights to the Myers-less 1982 follow-up Halloween 3: Season of the Witch. »
