Photos of the 10.31.78 VHS Release of Halloween

While putting together the home video history page for the original Halloween, I mentioned that – though outdated by today’s technology and all of the subsequent special features on it – the “10.31.78” 2-tape VHS set of the original Halloween was one of my favourite releases of the film on home media.

Perhaps it’s that it was my first time ever getting something that was marketed as a “limited edition,” or it’s the subtle touch of having the orange VHS tapes, but this has been one of my more prized items in my Halloween collection. In fact, other than a publicity photo of Jamie Lee Curtis that seems to have fallen out of the packaging over the years, my set is in practically mint condition – minus being opened years ago to watch the tapes on occasion.

Take a look at some of photos I’ve taken of the release below. This post will also be linked to the home media page for easy access later on.

Home Video Release History Added for Halloween & Halloween II

There’s just a rather small update for the site today, but one that will give an idea of what’s coming to the rest of the film pages. I’ve created detailed, in depth pages for the home video releases that Halloween and Halloween II have had since their initial release.

Eventually, I’ll be adding some photos of the different releases to the pages, but that’s for later on down the road. Until then, take a look at the pages and let me know what you think.

Two Interviews with Sandy Johnson

Sandy Johnson is best known to us Halloween fans as the original Judith Myers, portraying the iconic opening kill of the horror film. But Sandy herself quickly retired from show business and, for years, went unaware of what a fanbase the films had developed, or even that people had been trying to track her down for convention appearances.

In 2018, Dread Central was the first publication in nearly forty years to interview her, and it came at just the right time for the then-upcoming release of the 2018 revival. More recently, the official Halloween site posted their own exclusive interview with her.

Both interviews are fascinating reads, and I’ve linked both below for those who haven’t seen either of them. Both links will open in a new tab.

You can follow Sandy Johnson on her Instagram page, @unicornsandyj.
