'Halloween II: 30th Anniversary Edition' Announced and Detailed for Blu-ray

Posted Tue Jul 5, 2011 at 08:00 AM PDT by

Michael Myers' killing spree will resume in high-definition this September.

In an early announcement to retailers, Universal Studios has slated 'Halloween II: 30th Anniversary Edition' for a Blu-ray release on September 13.

Picking up precisely where its predecessor left off, Halloween II follows the same ill-fated characters as they encounter the knife-wielding maniac they left for dead in the first Halloween. It seems the inhuman Michael Myers is still very much alive and out for more revenge as he stalks the deserted halls of the hospital where his sister (Jamie Lee Curtis) lays waiting. As he gets closer and closer to his terrified target, Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasence) discovers the chilling mystery behind the crazed psychopath's savage actions. Written by horror masters John Carpenter ('The Thing') and Debra Hill ('Escape from New York'), Halloween II is a spine-tingling dark ride into the scariest night of the year.

The Blu-ray will have 1080p video, a DTS 5.1 processed surround soundtrack, and supplements include: an alternate ending, Terror in the Aisles featurette, My Scenes, and Pocket Blu.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.98.
