True Die Hard fans of the Halloween Series will enjoy this well done documentary.
29 August 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This insightful, well made documentary is about the groundbreaking horror classic "Halloween" and its seven sequels. Which this feature has interesting interviews with several of the cast and crew of each "Halloween" movie, including Michael Myers less sequel "Halloween 3:Season of the Witch". This is a true story of what went great and the controversies, they had with these pictures. This DVD also has interviews with the die hard fans of the original like Rob Zombie (The Devil's Rejects), Clive Barker (Hellraiser) and Edgar Whight (Shaun of the Dead).

DVD has an sharp full frame (1.33:1) presentation and an fine-Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround Sound. Beside the very good documentary, this 2-disc set is packed with extended interviews with the well respected sequel to "Halloween" and the oddball third film, extended celebrity interviews, several behind the scenes footage of the Halloween movies, terrific Panel discussions and a whole lot more.

What makes this DVD special is genuinely feel that this documentary is certainly made with care. It is also surprisingly funny to see the real fans of these movies (Which it was filmed in California at the "Return to Haddonfield Convention" back in 2003). Which makes you realize how special the Halloween movies are. DVD also included a collector's booklet and a bonus comic book. Since the late executive producer of the series:Moustapha Akkad (Who passed away in 2005) managed to succeed to keep the franchise alive and had every reason to be proud. Even from non-fans of the series will certainly enjoy it. (****/*****).
