For those of you who havenít heard of Halloween, tsk, tsk, for this movie was one of the original horrors that brought that genre to the mainstream. Made in 1978 by the legendary John Carpenter, this movie starred Jamie Lee Curtis in one of her first films. The adult Michael Myers is played by Tony Moran. 

The story revolves around Michael Myers and the fact that he killed his sister when he was 9 yrs old. Fifteen years later, he escapes from the sanitarium and looks for revenge. His main interest is a teenage girl named Laurie, which is Jamie Lee Curtisís character. 

Picture and sound quality is greatly improved, thanks to the digital quality of DVDs. Sound is in 2.0 only, but still sounds good with the right audio setup, and the picture is in 2.35:1 widescreen, not the standard 16:9. 

The special features in this film include Halloween unmasked, which is a bit of background about the movie, the re-release trailer, TV and radio spots, trivia and picture gallery. All features are included on the one disc with the movie, so no swapping discs if you want to watch them then the film.
