According to Halloweenmovies.com, Anchor Bay's upcoming 35th Anniversary Blu-ray edition of John Carpenter's 1978 classic will receive some major upgrades, including a new high-definition transfer overseen by the film's Director of Photography and a new commentary track featuring Carpenter and star Jamie Lee Curtis.
Academy Award winning cinematographer Dean Cundey is now confirmed to be supervising the new HD transfer, which will hopefully correct some issues that have troubled previous video releases.
Carpenter and Curtis had previously teamed up for an entertaining commentary on Criterion's 1994 laserdisc, which was ported over to subsequent disc releases, but we're thrilled to hear they will be reuniting for a new track, which will hopefully provide some new insights 35 years down the line.
The release date is yet to be announced, but we can safely assume it will arrive in time to celebrate the movie's 35th year this fall. Stay tuned as more updates creep in...
