Weinstein Co. has confirmed final specs and box art for 'Halloween,' which will hit Blu-ray with a new four-hour documentary and a director's cut of the film with 11 minutes of unrated footage.
As previously reported, Rob Zombie's hit remake will make its two-disc Blu-ray debut in time for trick-or-treating on October 21, two weeks after a three-disc standard-def DVD re-issue hits stores. (Weinstein previously-released single- and two-disc standard DVD versions of the film late last year.)
Spread across two BD-50 dual-layer discs, the Blu-ray of 'Halloween' will include all of the same extras as found on the three-disc DVD, including the all-new four-hour-plus documentary "Michael Lives," three additional featurettes ("The Many Masks of Michael Myers," "Re-Imagining Halloween," "Meet the Cast"), an audio commentary by Zombie, 17 deleted scenes, casting sessions, screen tests, and a blooper reel.
Finally, Weinstein has issued the final box art for 'Halloween,' which features a scary new look at Michael Myers:
Suggested retail price for the Blu-ray has been set at $34.95.
