Excellently Crafted Documentary On A Classic Series.
31 July 2006 | by drownnnsodaSee all my reviews

If you're a fan of the "Halloween" series, this is most definitely the ultimate Halloween documentary you've been waiting for. The 80 minute feature is an excellent compilation of interviews with all those involved with every film (so far) in the series, with extensive behind-the-scenes takes and very informative input from cast and crew, all excellently narrated by P.J. Soles (who played Lynda in the original "Halloween"). The documentary is topped off with footage from the "Return to Haddonfield" Halloween convention in Pasadena, California, which consisted of panel discussions and interviews with the cast and filmmakers of each of the movies, where fans could come together and meet those who were a part of creating some of their favorite movies.

Basically, if you are a fan of the series, this 2 disc DVD-released documentary is a must have. It's very informative and gives you a lot of great info on the making of the movies. It was nice to see all of the cast and filmmakers from all the films come together to compile such an interesting documentary. Very well done, every Halloween fan must see this. 10/10.
