A Quick Review of the Special Edition Halloween II and III DVDs

Posted on Sep 26, 2012 in 80's Horror, All Reviews, Halloween, Horror for the Holidays, Please Rewind: Revisiting My Youth | 0 comments

www.tavernofterror.comThe long awaited Scream Factory special collector’s editions of Halloween II and Halloween III: Season of the Witch have been released, and as a hardcore fan of both sequels I am happy to announce that these editions really live up to the anticipation.

Scream Factory brings the love to these releases, giving each of them slip-sleeve covers with brand new retro-style artwork from Nathan Thomas Milliner, plus reversible covers inside featuring the original artwork from the 80’s.

The bonus features are legion, most notably the all-new exclusive documentaries. Each one includes new interviews with the cast and crew of the films. Halloween II’s documentary The Nightmare Isn’t Over, is a solid 40 minutes while Halloween III’s Stand Alone runs about a good 30.  Featuring comical insights and behind the scenes secrets, these mini-documentaries are well done, reaching out to everyone from the stars, the directors, the producers, and even the composer of the two films, Alan Howarth.

My favorite moment is in Stand Alone is when a fan asks director Tommy Lee Wallace a great question about Halloween III: Season of the Witch. He asks if main heroine Ellie was a robot the entire time or if she was made into one later. Wallace replied, laughing, “I don’t know!”(I always assumed that Ellie was replaced by an identical droid to assassinate Dr. Challis if he escaped, which of course he did.)

The trailers, radio and TV spots are all here, including even a TV spot for Halloween III’s first run on television! All to this nostalgia whore’s delight.
