It's easy to pick apart this DVD for what it DOESN'T have: the director's uncut version, the "original" shades of certain colors in the picture, etc. But the truth remains that John Carpenter's "Halloween" is still the slasher film to beat. Unlike the not-so-subtle "Friday the 13th" movies, "Halloween" relies less on gore and more on suspense to terrify an audience. Jamie Lee Curtis, then barely out of her teens, rightfully earned her title as the "scream queen" as Laurie Strode, the babysitter who comes face-to-face with Mike Myers, a psychotic masked killer who just escaped a psychiatric ward. The DVD has been re-released for its 25th anniversary, with a decent 5.1 soundtrack (Carpenter also composed the music). Many pick apart the picture because the colors are "off." This didn't bother me, and it didn't lessen the viewing experience. I was just happy that the picture is clear with hardly any print flaws. The second disc includes a detailed documentary that runs for almost 90 minutes and has interviews with the filmmakers and the cast. This documentary is almost worth the price of the DVD, in my opinion. We also have the spooky original trailer as well as a few TV and radio shots. It would have been nice if this disc also had the TV version of the movie so I could compare the two, but that's just a small gripe. "Halloween" spawned several sequels (none were directed by Carpenter, thankfully), and none of them come even close to topping the original. No questions asked, "Halloween" is a must-have for any movie buff.
