Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers was released twenty years ago today! HalloweenMovies.com, the official website for the Halloween franchise, posted the first part of their interview with Daniel Farrands about the film; though I’m sure we all know many of the details by now, it’s still worth checking out for those who want to ready more about it.

Not only has the scripts page has received a minor facelift, but it’s been updated with a new script for your reading pleasure! The Curse of Michael Myers has one of the most well-known stories of complicated productions, with a total of five different cuts (four if you exclude the television cut) showing the film in a different manor. But now, you can check out the original concept for the finalized film, as 45 Lampkin Lane has added its first draft to the archives!
Checking in at 114 pages, the first draft written by Daniel Farrands dates to August 23, 1994 and pre-dates the film’s completed shooting script by just over two months. Check it out by clicking either of the links above, or by clicking the photo below.
High quality scans of the individual covers from the 15-disc limited edition Halloween: The Complete Collection blu-ray set have been added to the gallery! Each cover can be viewed in its respective film’s index, but you can view them directly by clicking the thumbnails below.
Despite Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends being pushed back a year, this September is seeing “new” home video releases of the original classic, as well as Curse, H20 and Resurrection!
First up is a Best Buy exclusive steelbook of Halloween‘s 4K UHD release on September 29, which features the 2013 transfer for the UHD disc and contains the 2007 Blu-Ray as its second disc. Check out the artwork below, and click the link to pre-order your copy!
For those who don’t know, Paramount recently came into possession of the Miramax home video library for distribution purposes. First up on their agenda is a re-release of the infamous Echo Bridge triple feature on September 22, that features all three films presented in 1080i (rather than 1080p) on one disc, and has open matted transfers for H20 and Resurrection.
While I don’t personally recommend it unless you really want to see alternate versions of the films, it’ll most likely be around $10 USD. Check out the link below as well.
The gallery has been updated with behind-the-scenes photos of the first eight films. In addition, the promotional material section has been updated with publicity stills for the first eight films, additional newspaper adverts & one-sheets for some of the films, and the start of the VHS gallery.

I had hoped to get this finished yesterday, but it took a bit longer than I was expecting for everything to be sorted and uploaded! Nonetheless, the first part of a pretty substantial (in my opinion, at least) update to the gallery has been completed! Captures of the director’s cut from The Curse of Michael Myers, the untitled pre-Homecoming workprint of Resurrection and Halloween: The Inside Story have been added, as well as scans of my personal copy of the first three film novelizations!
