Scream Factory Brings Halloween To 4K UHD

September 28, 2021 is the night he comes to your house in 4K UHD! That’s right, the first five films of the Michael Myers saga are getting a serious resolution upgrade to launch Spooky Season. These are the originals that had kids screaming in the theater at a man wearing a William Shatner mask. The movie elevated John Carpenter and Debra Hill as a director/producer team. It made Jamie Lee Curtis a scream queen. And gave Donald Pleasence an iconic horror role where he wasn’t the scariest person on the screen. The second film picks up right after the action ended in the original. Halloween III has nothing to do with the original film except it’s playing on the TV inside the film. This is a favorite of Darcy the Mail Girl on The Last Drive In with Joe Bob Briggs. Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers brought back the killing machine. Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers lets him get more revenge. And now all five will be coming out on 4K UHD with Blu-rays in the boxes. Here’s the press release from Scream Factory:
