Scream Factory Announces 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Special Features, Including Unseen Footage

Earlier this year, Scream Factory confirmed that it would be releasing the first five Halloween films on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, which would include new special features, with the distributor having now confirmed all of the supplemental materials that fans can expect on the releases. As if these films being remasted for 4K Ultra HD wasn’t exciting enough, some of the features on the discs have never been seen before, which includes Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers including an alternate opening and additional gore that needed to be removed in order to secure an R rating at the time of its release. Check out the full breakdown of special features below before the films hit 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray on October 5th.

Scream Factory describes the releases, “It’s been 43 years since the John Carpenter’s 1978 classic Halloween hit theaters and changed the horror genre forever. Now it — and its immediate sequels — can be experienced like never before in the best video and audio quality ever. This Scream Factory release of the first 5 Halloween films marks the North American 4K UHD debut for Halloween II, III, 4, and 5. In an exciting nod to fans, Halloween (1978) (Collector’s Edition) (4K UHD) features a return to the original camera negative for the first time! Each of these beloved, iconic films will be released in a limited-edition rigid slipcase, and will include a Blu-ray of the film as well as previously existing bonus features.”
