Last month we learned that Anchor Bay's upcoming 35th Anniversary Blu-ray edition of John Carpenter's Halloween would feature major upgrades, including a new HD transfer overseen by the film's Director of Photography, Oscar winner Dean Cundey, and a newly-recorded commentary track from Carpenter and star Jamie Lee Curtis. Anchor Bay has confirmed all that and more in a new announcement.
Slated for release September 24th, the disc will also feature an optional 7.1 sound mix (the original mono track will be included as well), and a newly-produced segment with Curtis entitled The Night She Came Home. Extras from earlier disc editions will be ported over as well, including the On Location featurette, trailers, TV & radio spots, and additional scenes shot for the television version.
The Halloween 35th Anniversary Edition will be available in a limited run book-style package, with 20 pages of archival photos, an essay by Halloween historian Stef Hutchinson and cover art by Jay Shaw. Anchor Bay will open preorders on August 28th.
