Yet if the rocker-turned-filmmaker makes good on his premise to reinvent the franchise, it could mean a welcome new beginning for Halloween—and if such becomes the case, there’s no better way to close the book on the original series than with this DVD package. Particularly those who enjoy the wave of groundbreaking films from the seventies among which was this first classic monsterpiece that started it all.

A fine documentary about the franchise (the first 8 movies) and interviews with people who work on those movies. soundtrack was created by Chace Productions in association with Alan Howarth using the original 16-track music studio master and the original 35mm magnetic dialogue and effects tracks. Topics discussed include the logistics of shooting certain scenes - like that now legendary opening set piece, the challenge of making various California locations, in the spring, look like the Midwest in the autumn, the hiring of key players Donald Pleasence and Jamie Lee Curtis, Carpenter's composition of his now iconic score, and the incredible legacy of the movie - not just its own succession of sequels (some of which get mentioned briefly) but the onslaught of slasher movies to come, with some of those choosing to centre around a national holiday as well. Hidden in the heart of Russia, there is a Soviet-era city where thousands of people live and work behind barbed-wire fences monitored by armed guards. In between the reminiscences both positive and negative, horror heavyweights like Clive Barker and Rob Zombie weigh in on both the first film’s primal appeal and the downslide of quality and substance in its follow-ups.If they haven't already seen 'A Cut Above the Rest', they should either pick up the 25th anniversary two disc DVD release or the more recent Blu- ray to check it out; they won't be disappointed. The inclusion of these outtakes also provides a showcase for a few actors who didn’t make it into 25 Years itself, like the initial movie’s Charles Cyphers and P. For those of us who have been following this film series for years—the devotees to whom this package is most directly pitched—some of the two-disc set’s material covers pretty familiar ground, but there are also plenty of surprises and enough fresh material to satisfy even the most jaded Michael Myers maniac. Halloween: A Cut Above The Rest, a documentary about the making of Halloween on disc 2, plus On Location 25 Years Later and trailers, T V and radio spots.

For the casual fan or the uninitiated, it’s a thorough primer on how a simple idea from the mind of executive producer Irwin Yablans spawned an enduring horror legend (and, eventually, cash cow).It truly stands at the head of a long list of films that tried to copy, but ultimately didn't quite achieve the standard.

I was impressed by the collection of interesting documentaries and interviews over the four discs and having a remastered copy to replace my outdated VHS copy is very satisfying. There are other features on the 4 disc's that I haven't listed but as you can see 4 disc's the original film and hours of features.This was a documentary produced for the series' 25th anniversary and covers the franchise up till Resurrection. years later, the 1978 "Halloween" still stands tall as a testament to talent, ingenuity, and passion, as a mostly quite young film crew set about to make a horror movie that continues to be hailed as a classic. gg/4tptCsJ - which offers a friendly community to chat with as well as the screenplays for Released and Unreleased Halloween movies. Not just covering the production stories, or the fan base, or some other aspect exclusively -- but it's really a full-orbit "all-things-Halloween" documentary.
