Two versions will be released. Directors cut and regular. Which will you purchase? What is the difference in the two DVD's besides one of them being a directors cut. Anybody have a listing of what is on the DVD's??

I think the unrated is the only version on Blu-Ray, so I guess that by default.

I'll be getting the Unrated Director's Cut and most likely the one or two other editions and the Best Buy Exclusive.

Would you happen to have that Blu-Ray on your computer for snapshots? I'm dying to see the difference between Blu-Ray and DVD...especially for HalloweeN.

None of them are released on Blu-ray, and none will (unless Blu-ray wins the format war), because Dimension doesn't release their movies in Blu-ray, only HD-DVD.

I will only buy the Unrated edition with the deleted scenes. I also never double dip so even if there is a better verison years later I won't be purchasing it.

Ah, ok. I realize now when I was looking at a release date thing it was for the original Halloween on Blu-Ray, not the remake.

And my Blu-Ray player is my PS3, though I may still be able to take screen captures with it, I'll have to try it out.

Ditto Mark.

Unrated Director's Cut for me also.

I'll just sit back and hope the T-cut airs on PPV, so I can compare the differences (depending on how many of them there are).

I'm going to wait until there is a price drop to buy it.....between $5.50-9.99 or so. There's no way i'm spending $19.99 and up on this.

I think ultimately the T-cut will probably go OOP, and be in most bargain bins pretty quickly.

I think most, even casual, will opt for the Unrated D-cut.

I'm 1 hr. 8 min. into the Director's Cut. Here are the changes thus far:

- Judith says eggs are chicken abortions.
- Extra shot of Michael walking into the bathroom.
- Principal: "Fuck me?" He grabs Michael.
- More dialogue between Deborah and the Principal.
- New shot of Loomis walking down the hallway,
before meeting Mrs. Myers and the principal.
- Longer close-up of the bully on the ground, dying.
- Steve twitches after he's knocked down by the
baseball bat.
- Judith takes a few more seconds to die.
- An establishing shot of a reporter in front of the
Smith's Grove sign -- we see him on camera starting
the news footage immediately after "Smith's Grove.
Eleven months later."
- Occasional black-and-white 'Loomis diaries' are
intercut into their sessions.
- New scene of Loomis and Michael across the table
from each other, neither speaking.
- "I have nothing left to say" scene is back in...
but it cuts before the actual line. The scene is
extended at the beginning, with Loomis worrying
he'll be taken off the case.
- "Cute baby, couldn't be related to you" is back.
- Kendall goes on a spiel to Danny Trejo about
hard-working Mexicans.
- Kendall to Michael: "Don't look at me, you big
long-haired psycho. I'll come in here and fuck this
place up, you just watch."
- After Loomis tells Michael he's leaving, he stands
up, sadly pats him on the shoulder, and says, "Take
care, Michael. Take care."
- Loomis leaves the sanitarium and looks back,
forebodingly.
- Loomis' book lecture is extended.
- The rape is back in (and more graphic than the
workprint), the guard massacre is out.
- Added Joe Grizzly line: "What we have here is a
failure to communicate."
- Added intro to Mr. and Mrs. Strode.
- Laurie fingers the bagel.
- Added lines as Mason leaves the house.
- Michael smells the folder Laurie drops off.
- Loomis meets Udo Kier and Clint Howard in an
office, watching a security tape of Michael
escaping.
- Extended dialogue during the second Udo/Howard
scene (from the t-cut): "Where exactly is he going?"
"Haddonfield!" "Haddonfield is a hundred miles
away from here!" (which begs the question... if
Michael can't drive, how the fuck did he get to
Haddonfield in like six hours?)
- Michael stalks Laurie home. There's a GREAT shot
of him walking behind trees, following her.
- Laurie helps Mrs. Strode fix a paper skeleton.
Michael watches. Heavy breathing. Very Carpenter.
- Extended intro to graveyard scene. Loomis tries
to call Sheriff Brackett, but can't get a signal.
- After the end of the graveyard scene, the screen
blacks out and a title card comes up: "TRICK OR
TREAT."
- Next shot is a new close-up of Michael watching
Bob and Lynda pull into the Myers house driveway.
- Lynda insults Bob, saying he's broke.

- Extended shots of the princess trick-or-treaters.
- Laurie's talk with her parents is longer. Mason Strode says it's amateur night.
- Laurie makes Tommy a sandwich before the boogeyman conversation.
- Laurie throws a potato chip at Tommy after "For the both of us."
- Tommy gives Laurie a really funny look when Annie dry-humps her.
- Loomis' speech in Brackett's office is extended.
- "Laurie I would like to return to the subject we started earlier this evening." "What, your hatred of peanut butter?" "No, the boogeyman! I need some closure on this topic!"
- New scene of Laurie telling Lindsey it's time to go, then joking with Tommy.
- New shots as Laurie runs across the street from Michael.
- Laurie yells "You motherfucker!" when she stabs Michael in the basement.
- The editing of Laurie in the pool is different. Michael paces, considering his next move.
- Extra shot of Loomis being dragged post head crush.
- LOOMIS IS ALIVE. He grabs Michael's leg to try and keep him away from Laurie. Michael kicks free and continues after her.
- Michael sees Laurie climb into the vent. No needless "she makes a sound so he can hear" bit.

If it does not hit the blue light special within a year I will pick it up on Ebay for 99 cents + shipping. It will remain the most unwatched DVD in my collection (Yes, even over other sad horror remakes) and probably the most expensive drink coaster I've purchased in quite some time.

Yeah, I found your post with the link. Going by Moviesunlimited and Overstock's descriptions the R rated version will have both WS and FF in the same package, which sounded familiar. So I went back to the Fangoria news article from 10/23 and they also reported the same thing.

I am getting the dvd for Christmas from a family member, not even sure which version yet since I never specified to them. I'm not going to bicker about it and would just prefer they pick up the first available copy they find instead of hunting for one or the other. So I'll open my copy on X-Mas and a few days after Christmas, I'll go out and buy the version (R-Rated or Unrated) that I didn't get.

Here is a solution: don't buy it!

I will buy it. When it is heavily discounted. Like 99 cents and in used condition kind of discounted.

I will eventually pick it up just to complete my Halloween collection. I have many crap DVD's in my collection and this poor piece of cinema could be the ruby gem of crap in it and stick around for a good laugh when friends are browsing through my collection. Then come April, I can give the DVD insert away as an April Fools Day gag... It will be a worse insult then getting a piece of dog sh*t wrapped in gift wrap. :)

When its on the clearance rack, I might pick up this piece of crap. Just to complete my collection.

If it does not hit the blue light special within a year I will pick it up on Ebay for 99 cents + shipping. It will remain the most unwatched DVD in my collection (Yes, even over other sad horror remakes) and probably the most expensive drink coaster I've purchased in quite some time.
Then hence why waste your time in buying it? I hated the movie Drop Dead Fred I simply hated it, did I sit around for months complaining about it? No. Did I buy it on dvd, even when it was on the clearance racks? No. Did I talk about on an online forum buying it on the clearance racks? No. The movie is out there you did not like it get over it do not buy it, I dont want you to buy it, no one here wants you to buy it, Trancas does not give two shits if you buy it and neither do Rob Zombie or Malek Akaad. Do us all a favor and do not buy it. As for me I am buying both versions.

completely different situation than H3, H3 was just ahead of it's time and was released when people didn't want to see a Myersless movie when the series was at it's best and after the series got stale in recent years after H:R, H3 the only myersless movie picked up it's own audience. Saying the remake will be seen like H3 in fifteen years would of been like saying H5 would of been like H3 in fifteen years or H:R would be seen like H3 in fifteen years, just completely different.

I did not say that what I get upset about is when people who do not like it go from thread to thread spouting the same rhetoric. And in a gthread that asks which dvd will you buy, if you really do not want to buy the dvd then dont post it drives me nuts that he wants everything as a platform for the fact that he did not like the movie.

drop dead fred didnt have a rabid fan base thats been around for 30 years. drop dead fred wasnt a movie that people had been fervently looking forward to for an entire year. halloween is the star wars of horror. many of us consider our love of halloween to be an intregal part of our love of cinema. when RZ halloween came out many people considered it to be a terrible movie, and their dissapointment was passed on in the form of message boards, and will probably be passed on for years to come, as the other halloween movies have been. i enjoyed RZ halloween, but i def cut some slack to other people who differ in that opinion. the message boards are just a way for people to communicate ideas to people of like minded tastes. on my next break i may go debate some guy on a boxing message board on the validitiy of lennox lewis being an all time great heavyweight champion.just one guys opinion.

I understand everyone having an opinion BUT when they continuously hit threads that basically arent about your opinion on the movie it gets old. This thread asked which dvd you were buying, it did not ask if you liked the movie. Some people who funny as it is only seemed to join this board because that movie came out since they joined in August of 2007 so they joined to complain about that movie and that is it. We have heard the complaints but please leave them in the forums that are made for that not in the threads where people are deciding which dvd to buy, or what special features they want on a dvd. Ok I am done here, and debating whether or not Lennox Lewis was an all time great champ is not the same as spamming everywhere that you do not like one movie in a series.

I like the description on the back:

....a retelling of the original that unfolds at a breakneck pace....

That sure is a nice way to describe the part of the movie a lot of people were disappointed in, since it felt so rushed.

I saw the commercial for the DVD several times last night and it actually got me all psyched for the release. I am really looking forward to adding both the theatrical and unrated versions into my collection. I'm still crossing my fingers that Best Buy or someplace will have a tiny bonus with it though. I'm not expecting a bonus disc or t-shirt, but maybe something. :question:

point well taken. i myself should leave the debate on the movie to the other threads. your right about some people joining the site to do hit and run attacks on the new movie, which is their right i guess but it is annoying. love of horror films and halloween is a big tent, but sometimes some wankers can sneak in.;

so was Jamie Lee Curtis', she was a nice goodies tooshus(tooshus spelled wrong I'm sure) type of teenager. Just cause your a teenager doesn't mean you have talk like a total bubblehead like they talked in the remake, and JLC character being real nice makes you like her character and feel bad for her when the shit hits the fan, which is what happens, you feel bad for her in the original when Michael goes after her and you root for Laurie to get into the house before Michael gets their, In the remake they were all so annoying I wanted Michael to hurry up and knife em'.

No you can't write a female charcter the same way going back to 1978.Jamie Lee's Charcter is a genre. convention rather than an actual charcter. Its nice to se a teenager act like a teenager.

Ok, but she was a modern "Goodie tooshus". If she was made like the Original Laurie, and put into this generation movie, It wouldent work at all. I mean, Go shy girls like that even exist anymore.

In relation to the quote you are featuring in your sig, it is called "discussing a movie with like minded people on a message board."

People say that they don't like Halloween 3 because it has no Mikey and Halloween 6 because they don't like Thorn, and mentioning things you did and didn't like about the remake is no different.

Rob may not be the best writer, but he is smart enough to figure out that a cell phone of that make will automatically assign a time period to that part of the movie.

Lol, yeah I have noticed my local Best Buy will often put some things out ahead of time. The same goes for all the book stores at my local mall. I guess some places don't even care or bother with the official release dates.

Sadly, my local Best Buy only puts out stuff early when it isn't something that was super advertised in their ad (or won't be done all that big when the time comes). I remember they put out the latest season of Ducktales and other random stuff long before they were due.

I think the one time I stopped in my tracks was when I saw the first season of Ren & Stimpy put out on a shelf at FYE in the mall before it was supposed to be released. I wanted it badly but opted to wait for a better deal.

If I had seen the dvd for Halloween just sitting there in K-Mart, I would have totally bought myself a copy...as long as it wasn't the fullscreen or one-disc copy.

I find this moron hilarious so I will go through some points for him.
1. Never played Dungeons and Dragons actually played football, and baseball when I was in high school yeah thats right I got outside oh and I dated girls which is something you probably know nothing about.
2. I do not live in my parents basement as a matter of fact I own my own house have a fiance and a daughter (yes I have had sex which is saying more then what you have done)
3. My IQ is actually 138 which is much higher then that of a pet rock.
4. With my intelligence I do not waste my time or money buying DVD's which I do not like. It is absurd to me to waste my time, money and shelf space on a DVD I do not care for or will ever watch.
5. Do you think your one dvd sale will effect the money the studio makes from this movie??
6. I would not join a message board to bitch and complain about one movie, that is what people on IMDB do.
So you can go back to your video game and blow up doll now as I am done with you if you want to continue this please do so via PM.

Anyone have access to the upcoming BB ad?

Sadly, the ads do not come out until 2am Saturday night/Sunday morning time. Lol, it's sad I know this but I log on and look almost every weekend right before I get the actual paper.

I will definitely be getting the Best Buy exclusive version and if the other two copies are cheap enough, I may get those as well (or at least get just the theatrical version). I guess my friend was right in that Best Buy might do something. Sure I was hopeful but I totally wasn't thinking it would happen.

I am pretty curious as to what will be on this bonus disc. Like if it's a tiny little nothing, as with the Friday the 13th box set bonus disc...or if it will have a few extra featurettes or something. No matter what, I will be psyched for that one extra disc...if it is indeed an extra disc. I'm thinking that's the case here since it's easiest to make an exclusive item be an extra disc instead of some promo item.

Sadly, the ads do not come out until 2am Saturday night/Sunday morning time. Lol, it's sad I know this but I log on and look almost every weekend right before I get the actual paper.

I will definitely be getting the Best Buy exclusive version and if the other two copies are cheap enough, I may get those as well (or at least get just the theatrical version). I guess my friend was right in that Best Buy might do something. Sure I was hopeful but I totally wasn't thinking it would happen.

Okay, so I was able to get a copy of the DVD from a friend who works at Blockbuster. I watched it as soon as I got home and I can say, its my favorite version of the film yet. ONE thing was missing that I really wish he'd added back in- the bit with Michael walking up on Mr. Strode. If THAT had been in there, then it would have been EVERYTHING I wanted- for the most part. But, alas, he didn't. I also listened to the commentary, which was good but I feel Zombie could have been a little more frank. He seemed to hold back when wanting to say some things, but I think it was a decent commentary. The Blockbuster Exclusive feature was a COnversation with ROb Zombie, which was actually REALLY good. It was done after the film was released cause he addressed certain issues. I guess I wish he had just said more than he did.

As for the new cut, well...it was good. Oh, and those of us who actually enjoyed Kristina Klebe as Lynda, will be happy to know Rob added a different angle to her opening the beer that is totally full frontal- and totally awesome. Wow, that sounded pathetic. lol...sorry but it was awesome.

Deckard
12-13-2007, 02:58 PM
I was gonna start a new thread to ask this, but oh well...anyways, I wanna ask if anyone agrees with me on something. For those that watch the features on the DVD and all, does anyone else feel like Rob needed to stop just changing things around and stick to one vision? He just seemed to be filming a bunch of stuff and throwing it around to see what worked best. I love the film, but I'm extremely frustrated by feeling like the movie could have been even better. I guess you could say that about a lot of movies- but I've never wanted to take all the footage of a movie and cut my own version so bad in my life!!!!!!! Am I alone?

Do you or anyone else know what program I can download to get the stuff on the DVD on my computer in order to do this? If I'm not supposed to ask this, I'm sorry...I just, really feel compelled to do so. ANd since I got my MacBook I have these programs like iMovie and iDVD and GarageBand that I can play with and cut my own version I'm thinking. It's a little project I'm gonna take on if I can only gather all the footage I can. Any help would be nice...

I'd like to recut the movie somewhat as well (and I probably would if I didn't have other edit projects I was working on). Of course, I wouldn't change the film massively since I really liked the version we got in theatres, but some changes here and there would be nice.

So yeah, you're not alone.

It's bad enough in the workprint.
Not to mention that it's way to random of a way for Michael to escape.
The opportunity presents itself out of nowhere and Michael busts out.

When there's a small limit, my local Best Buy usually has three times the amount when it comes to the big movies. For example, my Best Buy had close to a thousand of the Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End bonus discs floating around their store. However, I do recall them not getting many of the Friday the 13th box sets with the bonus disc inside. I got one out of the seven my store got and I was the first customer in the store...so they only got seven because none were in the back...unless a couple box sets were being held in customer service. Sadly, sometimes I'm in the dark with the exclusives but I may actually go early for this release since I remember the Transformers fiasco (hands flew in front of my face to get the exclusive set with two figures and then the figures on the side...my store only got two of those larger figures) and then other exclusive stuff has been flying off shelves lately because it's the holidays and people are crazy. There's no telling who will be picking up HalloweeN for themselves or as gifts.

I didn't really think about it before and I wasn't planning on going early but after thinking about it...I will be to make sure I get my exclusive copy.

I'm glad Rob actually cleaned up a few of the stalking scenes in the Unrated cut.

I always liked the scene of Michael following Laurie home... but it was the shots of him by the tree that looked weird. Looked like he was wearing a trench coat or something. There was also a part which looks like Tyler glances down at his mark before walking.

This has all been fixed, including an addition of an excellent shot of Michael stalking Laurie behind trees. (Be sure to look out for it)

I think you should all watch the unrated directors cut before you go out and buy the other version . It ishas a lot more in common with the theaterical version to me, to warent 2 purchases. Its a bit bneter becauses of additional sequences inclding stalking , and younng Michael. The rape scene isn't worth paying another buck to me, but than again it bothered a lot of pepople more than it did me.

Yes, it only appears in the ad because they don't sell it on their site. I may have to go super early because for some reason Circuit City ALWAYS runs out of their exclusives pretty darn early. I may have a friend hit Best Buy while I go to Circuit City. I will admit I am more excited about a bonus disc than a special cover, which disappoints me because I usually love the Best Buy exclusives a lot more. Lately it's been Target that has the cooler stuff (Ratatouille, Harry Potter and other stuff).

Let's just try and focus on the DVD release in here guys, not the movie itself. ;)

Ok, to get back on track, I haven't checked the Circuit City ad online, but if you type in your area code to look at the weekly ad...I'm sure it will pop up with all the details.

The ad reads like this:
free bonus disc with 45 minutes of extra content including a behind-the-scenes look at Rob Zombie's Halloween

Also it says "Circuit City exclusive" so this is not the 2nd disc already in the package...it is a third disc on the side only available at Circuit City.

Also I did some research and I see nothing about a bloody packaging available at Wal-Mart like Chaos mentioned. :p I totally fell for that one but then again...I am pretty gullible to some things. Thanks a lot Chaos! :D I did see that Wal-Mart has done a double movie deal there though...where you get another film with it for cheaper. I believe it might have been Captivity, but I am not certain.

Anyone find any other exclusives?

For myself yes, since I try to be a completist when it comes to Dawn of the Dead and HalloweeN dvd releases. For Dawn of the Dead, it's just that one installment, but for HalloweeN...I buy all the editions of each in the series if I can. It's different for a collector than the average typical viewer.

To relate this to Dawn Of The Dead, the Ultimate Edition has all three cuts, so for me, there is no need to own the individual DVD's.

To relate this to Dawn Of The Dead, the Ultimate Edition has all three cuts, so for me, there is no need to own the individual DVD's.

However, in this case, the producers are being greedy and releasing both cuts separate, so there is no choice in the matter.
Yes true on the account of the actual film, but the cover art to all different editions are pretty different. I like the style to different ones and therefore, I own the vhs tapes and a few different dvds...just because I enjoy the artwork.

Also, just as you have done so at conventions, I like getting my different copies signed by various actors in the films. It's a lot of fun to get the different copies signed. So in all honesty, sometimes it's not even about the film at all but everything you can do with them.

Sure, this HalloweeN remake is leagues behind the original classic, but I still enjoy it and I can't wait to welcome different editions of it into my collection. Some people collect posters, lobby cards, props, etc. I on the other hand, love to collect the various dvds and I've been highly anticipating this film and will be psyched to own different exclusives that will most definitely become collectible over the years. Plus that isn't just an assumption...it will become fact since the exclusives available aren't like the mass produced bonus disc like that of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End and others.

I assume you didn't read my previous posts...

I said I collect all editions of Dawn of the Dead 1978 (one of my most favorite films) and the HalloweeN series (my favorite horror series), so no...I do not buy films just for the cover art but yes, I am a completist of both these things (Dawn of the Dead the movie and HalloweeN the series). I only rebuy other films if there are must have features that I'd actually watch.

Also, a good portion of those dvds were pretty darn cheap even though I got them new. I am known to hold out on extremely awesome deals...unless they are exclusive editions, such as Rob Zombie's HalloweeN.

I'll back you up on this one. I sometimes buy DVD's just for the alternate cover art (most of those I don't even open).

I'm a sucker for anything Halloween related as well, so I'll be there on Tuesday to get my copies. I'll also try to hunt down the exclusives, although I'm kind of confused about the Circuit City exclusive... :nodsmile:

I hear Wal-Mart is putting out an exclusive version that bleeds when you squeeze the case.

Really? That is sweet. Thanks for the heads-up.:)

Wal-Mart censors CD's and won't carry certain DVD's, so I doubt that will happen.

Jeremy is right, if they have anything, it should just be the theatrical version. However, the tiny picture next to Captivity (they are packaged together for a low price on the Wal-Mart site), looked to be the Unrated edition. Very strange for Wal-Mart.

Wal-Mart will probably carry the unrated version.

Let's just try and focus on the DVD release in here guys, not the movie itself. ;)

Ok, to get back on track, I haven't checked the Circuit City ad online, but if you type in your area code to look at the weekly ad...I'm sure it will pop up with all the details.

The ad reads like this:
free bonus disc with 45 minutes of extra content including a behind-the-scenes look at Rob Zombie's Halloween

Also it says "Circuit City exclusive" so this is not the 2nd disc already in the package...it is a third disc on the side only available at Circuit City.

Also I did some research and I see nothing about a bloody packaging available at Wal-Mart like Chaos mentioned. :p I totally fell for that one but then again...I am pretty gullible to some things. Thanks a lot Chaos! :D I did see that Wal-Mart has done a double movie deal there though...where you get another film with it for cheaper. I believe it might have been Captivity, but I am not certain.

Anyone find any other exclusives?

The Wal-Mart exclusive is gonna package the D-cut with "Pulse".

Personally i'd rather have the bonus 3rd disc, than that drink coaster starring Kristen Bell.

Halloween '07 can only be released in HD-DVD (Dimension only makes HD-DVD's for now), at this time it's not planned for a HD-DVD version to be released. It's still going to look great on a HD TV, though.

Ah ok, I couldn't tell what it was when I glanced at the packaging. Thanks for clearing that up.

Too bad it wasn't Best Buy that got the 3-disc deal because if that were the case, I'd forget the 3-D packaging altogether (maybe) and get Hatchet too. Honestly, I plan on buying two copies of the unrated version of Zombie's HalloweeN but I only intend on keeping the Circuit City copy if the cover is drastically different from Best Buy's. I am curious to see what exactly Best Buy means by 3-D cover. Is it a cardboard slip case or part of the artwork underneath the plastic? Ugh, since I will get both of these things, I think I may wait a tiny bit longer for the theatrical cut. I think that one will be easier to find later on anyway.

Gah, as far as I can tell, the UK is only getting one version of this movie and so far nobody's giving any info as to what version it is. It's not out until February like, so maybe we'll get some more info in the new year but as of now it looks like I'll be getting whatever the R2 release is stuck with unless I can find a cheap multi-region dvd player just after xmas.

I wonder if Best Buy will continue what they started with the Grindhouse duology and Spiderman 3 DVDs and make an exclusive 3-disc set. If so, I wish a third disc could show the Graman's Chinese Theater footage, and all the video interviews on the main site for the 2007 Halloween. But don't forget about all the other theatrical trailers and tv spots that are going to be skiped on the dvd. That would be so cool.

45 minutes of behind the scenes footage sounds good! Pity they didn't included something like this on the actual DVD, instead of just the short Making-Of's.

Well, incase anyone hasn't seen this, (I'm sure if you're awaiting the DVD you'll enjoy it) here's 20 minute behind the scenes look - worthy of a special feature alright...

Also, Loomis lives.

Okay, so I was able to get a copy of the DVD from a friend who works at Blockbuster. I watched it as soon as I got home and I can say, its my favorite version of the film yet. ONE thing was missing that I really wish he'd added back in- the bit with Michael walking up on Mr. Strode. If THAT had been in there, then it would have been EVERYTHING I wanted- for the most part. But, alas, he didn't. I also listened to the commentary, which was good but I feel Zombie could have been a little more frank. He seemed to hold back when wanting to say some things, but I think it was a decent commentary. The Blockbuster Exclusive feature was a COnversation with ROb Zombie, which was actually REALLY good. It was done after the film was released cause he addressed certain issues. I guess I wish he had just said more than he did.

I didn't even know Blockbuster had DVD exclusives. How long is this conversation with Rob Zombie? I wonder if this same conversation will be included on the Circuit City bonus disc.

I hope not. I know how to make a coustom armary case with five discs housed in a one disc case, so there will be little problems. I am a completist and could Deckard go more in depth on the Conversation with Rob Zombie? I think that it sounds like one of the videos that you can load from the site...

Well the advertising is certaintly pushing the Unrated-Dcut. I haven't seen one thing for the T-cut, which is kinda puzzling.

If they think Zombie's new cut is so good, and love to advertise that 'Unrated' title (which sells, especially in horror), then what's the point of putting out the T-cut, if for only the purists to be completists?

Either way the D-cut sounds like it will be better.

If I were to buy this film for a friend, I would be beaten in the same fashion the bully was in the beginning of the film, LOL. :D Also the one friend I have who enjoys horror films (who I got into the HalloweeN series) wants the exclusives just as much as I do.

Hearing this news about the Blockbuster interview exclusive is now making me even more frustrated! :bigeyes: In the end, I will most likely just have the Circuit City exclusive Unrated edition and the theatrical version from somewhere. I guess I will just have to forget about the other exclusives, even though they all sound cool to a certain degree.

Well, the Directors Cut adds in the rape, which I hate, but it also confirms that Loomis is very much alive! As Michael is stalking Laurie and he's lying on the floor what we presume dead, he grabs Michaels leg...Michael just keeps walking until Loomis lets go from exhaustion.
The special features disc is good also. Overall, I'm very pleased with the Directors cut...the rape is lame but his escape is a bit more believable in some ways now.

Well I just got back from purchasing 4 versions haha.

Let me say if you plan on buying the Circuit City or Best Buy versions there is no need to buy the UNRATED version anywhere else. Besides the bonus disc at CC, and the 3D slipcase at BB it is the EXACT same DVD set.......I checked the UPC/Serial numbers and they are identical.

Walmart just has an added 2pack bundle with some movie called PULSE.

Heres a pick of the DVD's (Last 2 on the right are fan made covers for the workprint). The silver disc propped up is what the CC 3rd disc looks like.

metaldrumz, thanks so much for posting the pics and everything! It helps greatly to be able to see the Best Buy 3-D cover. This is horrible but I will ask anyway...is the cover for that Best Buy version capable of coming off or is it wrapped in plastic with the DVD too? The reason I ask is because my store will most likely not notice if I take the exclusive cover and put it onto the theatrical version. This way, I will not have two exact cuts of the film. Yeah it's horrible but I am still supporting the same movie so whatever. :p

Pretty soon I will be on my way to Circuit City. I am a little disappointed that the bonus disc is so blah and appears like a flipper. Best Buy usually goes all out for an additional disc with cool artwork and stuff, but alas...best Buy hasn't been getting the best exclusives lately.

picked up the unrated version at best buy this morning. circuit city wasnt open for another hour so i went across the street to best buy and got the version with the cool 3-D cover. i did enjoy the unrated one better than the theatrical, but ill still chapter jump to the "love hurts"song when i watch it like i did with the WP. liked the music better on the WP, by far, but oh well. i still think there is a better version that could be put together from all the cuts. also, i saw from a previous post that someone had made cool artwork for their WP dvd case. any links where i can download the artwork? well, now im getting ready to watch Blade runner final cut and then the simpsons, which also came out today, then watch special features. took this day off a month ago just for a movie marathon
