Movie

Scream Factory has been on a role lately. Back in October of 2021 they released special editions of the first 5 Halloween films in individual combo packs (which were great by the way), but didn’t release the 6th, 7th and 8th film until October of this year. However, instead of releasing them in singles, they put all three together into a single chipboard box set and NO single option to buy individually. For collector’s who want everything to line up, the artwork and slip boxes are identical to the individually release first 5 films, just housed in a single box that holds them together, so if you toss the box you can line them up with the previous 5 films to make everything look even

Final Score: :4stars:


These final 3 films kind of were the final nails in the coffin for the franchise before being rebooted (twice), but while they may not be top notch Halloween, I’ve still had a lot of fun with them. The 4K UHD discs from Scream Factory are quite fetching, with good video, good to great audio, and a STELLAR set of extras that will keep fans happy for hours. Solid boxset, especially if you’re a collector who needs to complete the series.
