Halloween II DVD Special Edition
If they ever did this would you buy it? I would. Am I the Only one?

Duh.  I'd buy it 7 times and watch it more than you could ever know.  On another note, the news for Halloween will be released today or tomorrow.  Watch HalloweenMovies.com for the information.  They'll probably only be announcing the director.

I'd buy it!!!

I actually ordered this online last night from Amazon, standard edition.  Went upstairs to get the original and saw that I already owned Halloween 2 on DVD.  Third time I've done that this year, buying flicks I already own.

Sad

I've only done that once--the movie Mercury Rising...I'd owned it for a few years, but saw it used someplace and picked it up again...it was only when I got home and went to put it on the shelf that I noticed a copy was already in its place.

That's not bad Matt. Hey, there's no link to your collection anymore.

Hehe...didn't wanna stir up anymore controversy...I'll send you a PM if you want, but it's terribly out of date...and on my old computer now...c**p.

I'd buy it as well.  One of the few good sequels ever made.  I like how it picked up right after the slaughter at the house.

I wish they'd include the TV CUT in a special edition, should one ever come to pass.

I've got all the various TV cuts on DVD and all the other cuts for Halloween 6.  So many DVDs for Halloween, so little time.

So, the apparent news is that Rob Zombie is directing the next Halloween movie.  My question is....WHY?!!  
I didn't enjoy either of his movies, so what makes them (Akaads)think he'll do such an excellent job on Halloween? Should've given the reigns to Marcus Nispel.  He did a good job on the remake of TCM.

Stanton, short of buying the rights to the film, you can't much do anything.

I personally am very happy over the Rob Zombie news.  Halloween rocks, and so did Devil's Rejects.  I hope he'll make a solid film.

Is Rob Zombie doing a sequel or a remake?  and who's the better slasher; Michael Myers or Jason Voorhees??

It's not a remake, it's a restart.

And I'm hardcore fans of both slashers, but Michael Myers takes the cake.  He's more (not entirely) realistic than Jason which makes him scarier.

When you want to make a statement that says you're committed to a series, you come out after 3 years and say Rob Zombie is going to redo the basic story.  That's great news to me as a fan.  Why choose him?  I think the question is why not.  He's proven to be a commodity in the horror industry and has a built-in fanbase.  As for the Akkads choosing him, it's a major deal for Malek and the Weinsteins.  Moustapha was killed last year in the Jordan bombings.  He and his daughter will be missed by the fans.

What is the difference between a remake and a restart?  Would it be like Batman and Batman Begins as an exemple??

Maybe with all the hype that surronds the remake of Halloween maybe we will get a deluxe treatment of "Halloween II" and "Halloween H20" Yes different studios but hey its a chance to make money.

You're going to get 3 DVD releases in July with the Divimax releases of Halloween 4 and 5 and the 25th Anniversary DVD coming out from Anchor Bay.  The 2 Halloween movies will have commentaries with their respective directors.  Should be good.

I knew those were coming I want a special edition of Halloween 2 and Halloween H20

Remake... Restart... why oh why???  I'd rather see another sequal, and continue the Michael Meyers we all already know.  I was not totally inpressed w/Zombie's horror fims enough to give him run with a major franchise.

I got my Freddy Box Set, I got my Jason box set, now where is my Michael, Norman, Leatherface Box sets?!?!?

If you live in the US, you'll probably never see a Halloween box set.  The rights to part 1, 4, and 5 are owned by Anchor Bay.  2 and 3 are owned by Universal.  6, H20, and Resurrection are owned by Dimension.

And the remake is a new beginning.  I'd rather see a new Halloween movie than not see another ever again.

The US may never get a definitive Halloween box set, but the ones already dished out overseas aren't worth c**p.  You can bet I've already called dibs on all three summer Halloween releases on DVD Active.  Gonna break out my old H4 and H5 DVDs for some comparisons to see just how good this Divimax is.  Also wanna do an editorial on the many versions of the original on DVD over the years... but that'd take more time.

Franchise, said this on an older thread but doubt you saw it... loved the OHMB board.  Haven't surfed on in about a year or two, maybe I should re-generate a password and re-visit.  Weren't you at one time hooked up with One Good Scare, which the owner deserted for the official site?

The owner of Myers Museum went to Halloween Movies.com and that site is nowhere as good as the Myers museum was

Yeah, halloweenmovies.com has sucked big time ever since it went to flash (I remember it back in 1998).  Suddenly, all of the features are gone, like two dozen features went missing.

One Good Scare and Myers Museum BOTH were better than the official site now.  They get news SO SLOWLY.

OGS was the first place I ever found that had the best of all Halloween worlds with it.  It was the coolest of the cool and I'm not exagerating at all.  With that said, the owner asked me if I wanted to take over message board duties for him and I agreed, but it fell through and I started the new board.  Myers Museum was great as well, but it went under before I got too much into Halloween.  Tony (the owner of MyersMuseum) is the webmaster of HM.com and Leon (TesOne) went on with his art career.  So, I won the position by default.  Within the past month, I upgraded the board and it couldn't have been better timing.

Mr Franchise if you have a connection than you should help Halloween fans by pressing the studio to release a COLLECTORS edition of "HALLOWEEN II",  "HALLOWEEN H20" and get the producers cut of "Halloween 6".  Look the fans of Richard Donner got Warner Brothers to give us the Richard Donner version of "Superman 2".  So maybe the fans of "Halloween II" can get the Rick Rosenthal version of "Halloween II"

The fans of Supes didn't do jack to help get the Donner cut out.  Warner Brothers made that decision when they were thinking of ways to make money.

And I'm sure if Franchise had that connection, he'd already have used it.

I know people and that's it.  I can't pressure Universal or Dimension to do something they think will lose money.  That's the reason for the barebones releases of both DVDs.  Perhaps with the news of the upcoming production of the next Halloween movie they'll reconsider, but I highly doubt it.
