Halloween picks up four decades after the first film in the franchise. The upcoming home release includes a number of extra features for viewers to enjoy. So mark your calendars. The Digital release of Halloween is on December 28, 2018. it will be followed by a Halloween 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and On Demand release on January 15, 2019.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Forty years after the events of 1978’s Halloween, Laurie Strode (Curtis) now lives in a heavily guarded home on the edge of Haddonfield, where she’s spent decades preparing for Michael’s potential return. After being locked up in an institution, Myers manages to escape when a bus transfer goes terribly wrong, leading to chaos in the same town he preyed on decades earlier. Laurie now faces a terrifying showdown when the deranged killer returns for her and her family – but this time, she’s ready for him.
Master of horror John Carpenter (Halloween (1978), The Thing) joins forces with director David Gordon Green (Joe, Pineapple Express) and producers Jason Blum (Blumhouse), Malek Akkad (Trancas International Films) and Bill Block (Miramax) for this follow up to Carpenter’s 1978 classic horror film. Halloween also includes a stellar cast including Judy Greer (Ant-Man and The Wasp, Jurassic World), Andi Matichak (“Underground”), Will Patton (Armageddon, The Punisher), and Virginia Gardner (Project Almanac, “Runaways”).
Being a fan of the original, I am so glad to see the impressive box office numbers Halloween has been able to collect. It was released in the U.S. on October 19, 2018. A sequel is also in early development.
