    Great review Neil. :thumbsup:

    Just watched this the other night and damn does it hold up well. The perfect film to start and end the Halloween season.

    Picked this up last week and watched this Friday evening. Still effective and creepy. I was careful of every shadow as I made my way to the bedroom to sleep.

    I watched this tonight in UHD, and the film's staging and pacing still hold up after all these years. Despite knowing the jump scares and other shock moments, it's still effectively creepy. I must confess to really liking the 7.1 surround track. With this kind of eeriness amid lots of deep shadows, I loved being enveloped with sound even if it isn't true to the original presentation. (I wish I could say I was too young to have seen it originally, but it would be a miserable fib.)

    Good job, Neil!

    Same here, the audio presentation really stood out for me.

    I almost always stick with the original audio track on all movies but I've seen/heard Halloween so many times that a remix sticks out like a sore thumb to me. I realize that I'm in an extreme minority so I understand why others might enjoy it.

    Will definitely be picking this one up as it's one of my favorites. I saw this at the theater when it first screened in 78' and was shocked to recognize most of the locations were within a mile of my apartment in North Alhambra. Although I've long since moved out of the area, I've driven by them many times since and I still get the creeps to this day...

    I finally got a chance to watch this last night. I get bit sad when I buy a movie 10 or more times(yes, this is one of them) but I promise you this will be the last time I buy this title as it is perfection. It can't get any better.

    Ordered Halloween on 4K Blu-ray along with 5 other movies and Halloween arrived the following day. Have not seen this movie in some time so I have a feeling it will be a real treat seeing it again but on 4K Blu-ray! Can not wait to see it on Tuesday!

    Odd man out here. I projected my Super 8 Scope feature of Halloween on the night and still fun to view with that anamorphic lens in place.

    Finally got around to watching this title today and enjoyed the movie. Not only is it a good movie but I would say that anyone into horror who has a 4K player and display should make it a point to purchase this movie on 4K. Not only does it look fantastic but sounds excellent as well. I have never seen it look so good or sound so good on home video! This movie really does hold up and stood the test of time and is just as good today as it was back when it came out.
