'Halloween II: 30th Anniversary Edition' nice artwork, but what a shame for the extras 'Terror In the Aisles Documentary? surely this can't be the 1984 horror complitation film of the same name hosted by Donald Pleasance? and an 'Alternate Ending? Is that the best Universal can do?

It IS the dubious 1984 documentary.

Oh, and isn't the artwork for The Frighteners just ghastly?

That's too bad that it's 'the dubious 1984 documentary ''Terror In the Aisles'' I've read that Lionsgate were due to collaborate with Halloween II's Director Rick Rosenthal on a special edition?

Very intriguing about the Halloween II (1981) extras.

I read something claiming Peter Jackson never liked the "scary face" poster, because it didn't reflect the tone of the film. There was even a suggestion that the poster had damaged the film's performance at the box office....

Surely he wasn't thinking they should've gone for this "giant floating heads" Photoshop collage?

Personally, I'm hoping we revert to the scary face cover for the UK release.

Amazon has the "scary face" cover, but it does TBC.

Any news of when a UK BD will be released for Halloween II, and if it might retain Kim Newman and Stephen Jones' audio commentary from the R2 DVD release?

Got my Halloween II Blu in the post today, not had a chance to watch it yet though. Terror in the Aisle is in 1080P is a fantastic for universal.
