    I just picked up Halloween on Criterion LD, and I'd like to get the others on DVD. Which are the "definitive" versions...I see there have been a few different releases.

    Thx in advance...

    Get the Special Edition of 1,and the Extended Edition(TV version).Which is what makes up the 2-disc limited edition.
    The Universal version of Halloween 2(If anamorphic isn't a concern,get the goodtimes version for about $5).The goodtimes version of 3 you should find for a bout $5 also.
    Anchor Bay's Halloween 4&5(make sure 4 is the rerelease)
    And so on.
    2,3(Goodtimes),6 and H20 are non-anamorphic,though.

    The main ones that I'm concerned with at the moment are 4 and 5...both of which seem to have LE releases. Are they worth it?

    Matt, did you get the Criterion CAV?
    If you did, good score. That's one of my most-spun Criterions. [​IMG]

    Just a reminder: Anchor Bay is working on yet another version of the first Halloween, to be released next year to mark the film's 25th anniversary.
