    Michael Myers is back, and he’s never looked better. On August 28th, Anchor Bay Entertainment revamps two of the most iconic horror films to ever grace the big screen with Halloween 4 and Halloween 5. Coming to Blu-ray with all new HD transfers and over an hour of both archival and newly created bonus features, Halloween 4 and Halloween 5 both hit retail with an SRP of $24.99. Pre-book is July 25th.

    Halloween 4

    He had maimed 16 people to get to his sister. He was shot and incinerated, but still the entity that Dr. Sam Loomis (the legendary Donald Pleasence) calls “Evil on two legs” would not die. Tonight, Michael Myers has come home again…to kill! This time, Michael returns to Haddonfield for Jamie Lloyd (Danielle Harris, Halloween 5, The Last Boy Scout) – the orphaned daughter of Laurie Strode – and her babysitter Rachel (Ellie Cornell, Halloween 5, House of the Dead). Can Loomis stop Michael before the unholy slaughter reaches his innocent young niece?

    Bonus Features: Deleted & Alternate Scenes (30 minutes of NEW scenes!), Audio Commentary with Director Dwight H. Little and Author Justin Beahm (NEW), Audio Commentary with Actors Ellie Cornell and Danielle Harris, Audio Commentary with Writer Alan B. McElroy, Halloween 4/5 Discussion Panel, and Theatrical Trailer

    Halloween 5

    Michael Myers survived the mine explosion thought to have killed him. One year later, his traumatized young niece Jamie is horrified to discover she has a telepathic bond with her evil Uncle…and that Uncle Michael is on his way back to Haddonfield. But Dr. Loomis has a new plan to destroy The Boogey Man in his childhood home using Jamie as bait. With enhanced gore and effects, vengeance has never looked so gruesome!

    Bonus Features: Audio Commentary with Director Dominique Othenin-Girard and actors Danielle Harris and Jeffrey Landman; Audio Commentary with Actor Don Shanks and Author Justin Beahm (NEW); Halloween 5: Orginal Promo (NEW) and Halloween 5: On Set Footage (NEW - 17 mins. of raw footage)

    Wow, will be a busy Halloween with new SE Blu-Rays of Halloween 2-5 coming.
    I'll definitely pick up 4 as I think it was generally solid (would have been a lot better though if the mask they used didn't suck). And, it will be interesting to see whats in the 30min of deleted footage. And interesting how the release emphasizes the scenes are "New" as if they're telling us it's not going to be just extensions of existing scenes that actually show very little new footage.
    As for 5, it's pretty lousy, but the completist in me will probably end up getting it.

    Wish Anchor Bay could have kept the original movie poster artwork without changing the colour scheme (like what happened with the front cover artwork for the Region 1 Divimax releases). The 30 minutes of deleted and alternate scenes sounds good, but hopefully there are more deleted than alternate scenes. And also hope the new HD transfers are a step up from the Region 1 Divimax releases.

    Buyer beware for those who are interested in picking these up.
    According to reviews I have read, the 30 minutes of deleted footage that was mentioned on the press release for Halloween 4 is not included on the disc. The disc also drops the writer commentary for some reason.
    I do hear the transfers are decent though

    I would have loved to have seen the deleted scenes but the transfers are what matter most to me.
