It's the same as the one-disc DVD but with the extended edition. You can get the THX one-disc and the Extended Edition and it's the same exact thing as the limited edition. But still, I want the 2-disc limited badly and I think congradulations are in order!

thanks Not exactly. The normal version of the film (disc 1) is THX certified for optimum picture and sound. The extended version (disc 2) is not, although it still has very good picture quality, but with a little softness on the extra scenes.

In the sound department the discs are different as well. The theatrical cut (disc 1) has the dolby digital 5.1 mix, however the extended version has only a 2.0 mono track.

hey all, sorry to re-ressurect this old thread,
but since im a newb i guess i cant create a new one.

anyhow i ordered a used copy of this limited edition from
secondspin.com, just got it today and its numbered 31422??
i thought only 30000 were made?

everything appears legit...only descrepancy is
the website address in the small print on the back
is "halloweenmovie.com" instead of "halloweenmovieS"

what gives? :confused:

Winson,

"Halloweenmovie" .com was THE official site at the time of the Limited Edition DVD. The site was run by Mickey Yablans, who's Irwin Yablan's son. The site only lasted about a year....and with constant promises of updating but it never came to be. All of a sudden, the site was closed with no word as to why and then "Halloweenmovies" .com became the officially endorsed site of Trancas International.

hmm.... so this thing is the real deal i suppose,
im also guessing they made more than 30,000 copies...

anyone know exactly how many of these they supposedly pressed up
or is there anyone on this board that has one numbered after 30,000?

What usually happens with this kind of thing is that only 30,000 (or whatever number) are actually made and sold, but a good number mess up in the assembly process so rather than going back and finding which numbers they missed (talk about a hassle!) they just make more, numbered after 30,000. The same thing happened with the production of Weezer's album The Lion and The Witch (not that you care about Weezer, just that that's how I know this).

Thanks for pointing that out, Brian. I never knew that :). And Winson, since your's is numbered above 30,000, I feel thats all the more reason to keep it :).

There's a video glitch on the T.V. version near the beginning, and it's missing the title card before Loomis goes before the psychiatric board, but other than they it's perfect.

Does anyoen know if any later runs of the T.V. edition alone fixed those 2 errors, or if the 4 disk "Perfect Collection" fixed them? Those errors really bugged me.

None of the "TV" versions on any of these discs are the true TV cut seen originally in 1981. They are merely the original film with the extra scenes spliced into them, without the gore/language/sex removed and no extra title card, etc. Anchor Bay could have done a better job and actually got the REAL TV version.

Frankly I wouldn't want to watch the real TV version. The extra scenes presented in widescreen are a lot more interesting than some bastardized cut created for television that does not represent the original vision in the least. But that's just my opinion (I am not a fan of television or airline cuts).

The real Halloween tv version isn't that good a watch anyways. Aside from everything even remotely resembling violence being cut out, there are some weird edits in it too (like the H2 tv cut).

I'll watch the tv cut if it's on for the nostalgic factor, but other than that, I prefer my halloween in it's theatrical cut.

I actually like the pure television cut. Nothing beats the theatrical, and every true Halloween fan must have the extended, but somewhere in the middle lies a really good version of the movie, or at least in my opinion. The edits aren't even much of a big deal to me. Anchor Bay should definitely release the true television cut..in fact, it should be their next Halloween venture after they've squared away special editions of (hopefully) 2-3 and 4-5.

Who cares if you don't think it's a good version or not, it's still not the TRUE TV version as advertised! :p

Heh. I thought it was advertised as an 'extended edition' though, with the television scenes inserted?

I agree, except, the 2 bloopers ruined the dvd for me (no title card, and video screw up when Michael is killing Judith).
