This will be a review of John Carpenter's classic 1978 film, 'Halloween', on Blu Ray.

In terms of the overall quality, here's what I think:

Picture: 8/10. The picture quality gets a solid 8 from me. Basically, there is very much so an improvement over a DVD counterpart here. Colours, Character clothing, Textures and Backgrounds are what to watch out for here. Also, the overall image of the film is a whole lot sharper now, thanks to this Blu Ray release. However, despite all of the above, there are some scenes I noticed that looked exactly the same as my DVD counterpart (which is the 25th Anniversary edition and which was remastered anyhow). In the heel of the hunt though, 'Halloween' is a definite improvement in picture quality on Blu Ray, so I would recommend it.

Sound: 10/10. Yes, the sound quality gets a full 10 from me. When I sat down and watched this yesterday, I could not believe how good the sound quality was. The dialogue and music score are both top notch here. In fact, I do consider this Blu Ray to be the best version of Halloween I have heard and will probably ever hear (considering its age). Ultimately, I would highly recommend a purchase of this on Blu Ray for the quality of the sound alone.

Finally, just a quick note regarding the special features. You get an Audio Commentary track from John Carpenter, Debra Hill and Jamie Lee Curtis. There's also a film trailer from 1978 and 3 TV and Radio Spots. However, on the back of the Blu Ray case, it says 'Halloween: A Cut Above The Rest Trailer'. This is incorrect; you do get the full documentary and, on that note, I must say that it is a really good documentary which covers the entire Halloween franchise and where the people involved feel it is going in the 21st Century.

Being a fan of a particular band, album or film means that at some point you will find yourself faced with the dilemma as to whether to buy a new special edition of an album or DVD you already own.

For this reviewer, the moment came with the release of Halloween 35th Anniversary Blu Ray. I already own two versions of Halloween on DVD (double disc from 2001 and 25 Years of Terror from 2008) so it became a real head vs heart debate between the joy of owning Halloween on blu ray with JLC/JC commentary (heart) and spending more money on a film that JC has already done a commentary on before and I probably know as much as I need to know from every extra before (head).

And so it came to pass that I was in the DVD section of my supermarket and I came across the blu ray. It wasn't exactly beckoning me to buy but it might just as well have. So my heart told my head to go get the coffees in whilst my heart and me went and bought it.

So what do you get? I'm not clever enough to describe the technical advantages of blu ray so all I can say is that it looks and sounds great. I could even see that the great Nancy Loomis had some teenage spots which I never noticed in my VHS edition. I don't need to describe the film, you all know how amazing it is and how it never fails to hit the spot.

The extras are limited to a JLC/JC commentary which is absolutely brilliant. To listen to the double heart and soul of the movie bickering, reminiscing and generally talking over each other is just amazing. Witness when JC starts grumbling when JLC starts talking technically about the film. The only sad part was that the brilliant underrated Debra Hill was not there to act as referee but her spirit lives on in this film.

I'm not quite sure how you can not love this film. It has got EVERYTHING. Except hardcore gay porn. But other than that pure brilliance.

Format: DVD
halloween is a 1978 john carpenter movie that was an independent movie that made so much more than could have been imagined and its influence is even greater than that,logic would say that this film was inspired by hitchcocks psycho but the slasher genre grew wings after this and led to years of cheap slasher movies that have all more or less grew cult status and of course halloween is the best of a franchise that has spawned 8 films including a 2007 rob zombie led remake.

The film isnt as gory or as blood led as its reputation dictates,check it out if you havent watched it in a while and you will see what i mean,but the character of michael myers is menacing and the scare factor is immense here at times,jamie lee curtis is excellent here as one of michaels targets and while michaael never talks nor do you see his adult face,he is still one of horrors most distinctive characters,iconic almost and so is this movie,excellent.

John Carpenter's Halloween was filmed over a period of just 3 weeks with a budget of just $300,000. A lot of compromises had to be made. The mask, for example, is a William Shatner one - all they did was spray paint it and widen the eyeholes, and to fantastic effect!
John Carpenter is such an excellent director. The first time I watched this movie I was about 12, and it is my favourit horror film. I'm 17 now and no matter how often I watch it still chills me!
Donald Pleasance and Jamie Lee Curtis give outstanding performances in the film that started the "slasher" movie genre. Also PJ Soles and Nancy Loomis are very good as Laurie's naughty but unfortunate best friends.
It goes without saying that John Carpenter's musical score for the film is very catchy/nerve-shredding, in particular the deep piano "heartbeat" chords that start when The Chase begins.
Overall just the mere concept of an unrelenting force of evil, in the shape of a person who refuses to die, makes this film so creepy and a definite MUST for all horror fans. It hooks you!
It spawned seven sequels, and a ninth is in production I believe, but none of the sequels aspired to or ever will aspire to the same terrifying level as the original. I promise you that you simply must have this film!
