Nice steelbook which will look good in a collection. For such amazing value you get a brilliant classic horror film with top-notch quality blu ray! Comes with a booklet which is interesting and a documentery along with other extras which is good. It goes well with the other horror steelbooks such as Texas Cahinsaw Massacre and Scream. Recommended!
One of the greatest films of all time gets a sweet upgrade to a beautiful steelbook. Superior transfer quality provides a great looking picture and sound. This disc is also loaded with special features. Don't wait around, get one while you can.
This steelbook looks great in person. A real treat to have in my collection. I watched the original Halloween for the first time with this release, and i was stricken with how elegantly the mood and atmosphere is build up. Unfortunately the film is not very scary anymore, seen with modern eyes, but it builds its characters and plot perfectly. Its easy to se why this movie has been so influential. This is the grandfather of all modern slasher films, a genre that has mostly produced terrible movies as for the last decade or so. The picture quality on this release is impressive, considering the movies age and budget. It does not look like it was made yesterday by any means, but probably looks as good as its ever gonna look. The extras are a bit of a disappointment. There is no big documentary about the making of the film with interviews with John Carpenter and the cast and crew. But there are a funny little featurette about Jamie Lee Curtis (the main actress) who goes to a convention to meet fans. There is also a few other extras like commentary track, trailers, scenes from the rare tv version of the film and a "on location" featurette, but if you want this release for its extras, you are risking being disappointed. All in all this is a great looking release of a classic horror film, with great picture quality and a small portion of ok extras. Recomended.
It's nice to have one of my favourite films in a steelbook, and along with the packaging it comes with a new transfer that is closer to the original look of the film. The old bluray isn't at all bad, and I kind of liked the look of it, but the new transfer adds a little more to the eeirness of the film. It comes with a new commentary too. If you haven't seen Halloween before, start with this release!
Again great service,item is in pristine condition.
With out a doubt one of the best steel books I have brought. The steel book itself is well designed and a little nostalgic . Halloween is my favourite horror movie and finally it gets the remastering it deserves and the sound is perfect... I can hear Michael Myers breathing behind me with the new audio..... And for all the geeks there is a brand new commentary with the director and the scream queen...... Fanbloodytastic.....
As part of my first Zavvi steelbook order, I was curious as to the quality of Zavvi's products. Now having received it, I can say that the design is a beautiful creation that honors the original theatrical poster art, versus the heavily criticized American blu-ray release. For this steelbook release, the raised title treatment is very nice, and the colors are solid and bold. The case itself is of solid construction and it arrived in perfect condition, free of any blemishes at all. As a collector of many steelbooks, and this particular movie being my absolute favorite film ever, I can say that Zavvi has just added a shining jewel to my collection. Thank you Zavvi!
An amazing piece of 70's horror cinema released in a format worthy of its cult status for its 35th Anniversary. Fantastic packaging and presentation, a really good price, plus some great inclusions for horror film & director John Carpenter enthusiasts alike, this zavvi Steelbook release was absolute value & a great addition to my movie collection. Thanks again zavvi.
Nice steelbook but more importantly this film is one of the best iv seen on blu ray I hadn't seen the film since I was young so didn't know how it would hold up in this day day and age - The transfer is beautiful crisp and clear good sound that chilling theme has never sounded so scary, the film itself blew me away not any bit cheesy in the slightest given it's age but genuinely a quite unnerving film, I believe this is a must have for every blu ray/plus steelbook collector.
This is a great film by John Carpenter with a fantastic soundtrack. This steelbook does it justice, with a nice finish and for a fantastic price.
The cover image of this steelbook is inspired by the iconic original poster, but with an embossed title which is really effective. The back image of Michael Myers is a great choice, and the disc looks good. I was disappointed to see no image on the inside of the case, but the booklet more than made up for this - a great booklet talking about the films production and with loads of behind the scenes photos which I had never seen before. I am a collector of horror steelbooks and Halloween is my favourite ever film, so if I was impressed I'm sure you will be too :)
Nice artworked steelbook with excelent film. Recommendet this steelbook and film.
There's no more we can ask from this movie: we have a stunning HD remaster supervised by the director of photography himself, new extras specifically for this edition, a wonderful steelbook case with a booklet inside. If you love HALLOWEEN, the one and only original classic from the horror master J.Carpenter, THIS is the best edition you will ever get in home-video.
Excellent steelbook. Fantastic blu ray w/20 page booklet. Zavvi always carrying some of the best steelbooks out there.Thanks!
Who doesn't like this movie, & the Steelbook is a must have for any Halloween or Steelbook fan. The pictures don't do the Steelbook movie any justice. The paint on it gives the knife & pumpkin a 3D effect. I would recommend this movie & Steelbook to anyone.
....of the countless bunch of forgettable Slasher Movies, they try to stuff down our throats nowadays When this came out in 1978, made with a budget so small...it really set the bar high and propelled John Carpenter to an A Director. Still very effective when you view it today and incredible camerawork from Dean Cundey. And if you watch it closely, there is hardly any blood spilled in this flic, it really lives from the suspense and what you don`t see on Camera. Now that new 35th Anniversary release what I´m babling about here, ist magnificent, the best right now in the shops! They created a brandnew HD Transfer which was personally supervised by cinematographer Dean Cundey himself and "Halloween" never loked that good! They even got Carpenter and Star Jamie Lee Curtis to record a brandnew Audio Commentary, also a spanking new Featurette with Curtis. So, why are you still sitting here and reading this? .....go and run like Hell to get this incredible looking Steelbook, it`s really that good!!!!
Very nice steelbook. Highly recommended. Delivered in perfect shape.
I wont ramble on,, I will just say this is one of my favourite horror movies of all time it is an absolute classic and a must see.
I'm a big fan of horror and this still book is Great!! such detail!! Any Halloween Fan will be happy with this 5 stars!
The Halloween 35th anniversary Blu-ray looks spectacular. When compared to the old release it preserves the film actual look as opposed to making an updated look to the film. This film should look like it was shot in the 70s not this past summer. This is the definitive Halloween Blu-ray and the steel book is a great touch especially when compared to the American release.
