Last month we were all positively blown away by the news Anchor Bay and Scream Factory are joining forces on HALLOWEEN: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION, which will bring us every damn Halloween movie ever in one beautiful batch. Yes, that includes SEASON OF THE WITCH, the Rob Zombie versions and even the legendary "Producer's Cut" of THE CURSE OF MICHAEL MYERS. Definitive isn't an accurate enough word for this set.

Today we have a few updates for you on this exceptional release. Anchor Bay and Scream Factory are evidently still hard at work on the collection, hence they're still adding special features. Updates are in RED.

Finally, there's a nice photo comparison at the bottom of the page, contrasting the bootleg version of HALLOWEEN: THE CURSE OF MICHAEL MYERS and the restored version.
