    Definitely picking up both. I pray this is the definitive Halloween, though...I don't know if I can take buying another one. The only thing interestng on it, to me are the two docs...I've already got the Criterion LD.

    Did Dawn of the Dead ever come out? Seems odd that the third movie SE would come out after the original SE.

    I am so all over DAY OF THE DEAD, which is the best of the trilogy in my opinion, and also one of the top five best zombie films ever made! Will, also be getting the HALLOWEEN set despite having the LE.

    I knew I held off buying Halloween for some reason. Now if only I can get my hands on that Dawn of the Dead DVD Special Edition I keep hearing about.

    Unless some reviews state that the new transfer on HALLOWEEN is a drastic improvement over the LE, I'll pass. But DAY OF THE DEAD will be mine!

    What I'm scared of is not getting the DAWN OF THE DEAD special edition in early 2004. I just read that interview mentioned above and it's got me worried that any future Anchor Bay releases beyond 2003 may end up getting canceled. [​IMG]
