UPDATE FROM ANCHOR BAY TO HORRORBID:

Dear HorrorBid:

The previous announcement regarding the August 21st release of HALLOWEEN 4 and HALLOWEEN 5 on Blu-ray contained information not reflective of the final product.

Below are the final confirmed specs and descriptions for the HALLOWEEN 4 and HALLOWEEN 5 Blu-ray releases.

As always, thanks for your support!

Dear HorrorBid:

On August 21st, Anchor Bay Entertainment revamps two of the most iconic horror films to ever grace the big screen with Halloween 4 and Halloween 5. Coming to Blu-ray with all new 1080p HD transfers, lossless Dolby TrueHD 5.1 audio and over an hour of both archival and newly created bonus features, Halloween 4 and Halloween 5 both hit retail with an SRP of $24.99. Pre-book is July 25th.

Halloween 4

He had maimed 16 people to get to his sister. He was shot and incinerated, but still the entity that Dr. Sam Loomis (the legendary Donald Pleasence) calls “Evil on two legs” would not die. Tonight, Michael Myers has come home again…to kill! This time, Michael returns to Haddonfield for Jamie Lloyd (Danielle Harris, Halloween 5, The Last Boy Scout) – the orphaned daughter of Laurie Strode – and her babysitter Rachel (Ellie Cornell, Halloween 5, House of the Dead). Can Loomis stop Michael before the unholy slaughter reaches his innocent young niece?

Bonus Features: Audio Commentary with Director Dwight H. Little and Author Justin Beahm (NEW) , Audio Commentary with Actors Ellie Cornell and Danielle Harris, Halloween 4/5 Discussion Panel, and Theatrical Trailer

Halloween 5

Michael Myers survived the mine explosion thought to have killed him. One year later, his traumatized young niece Jamie is horrified to discover she has a telepathic bond with her evil Uncle…and that Uncle Michael is on his way back to Haddonfield. But Dr. Loomis has a new plan to destroy The Boogey Man in his childhood home using Jamie as bait. With enhanced gore and effects, vengeance has never looked so gruesome!

Bonus Features: Audio Commentary with Actor Don Shanks and Author Justin Beahm (NEW); Halloween 5: Orginal Promo (NEW ); Halloween 5: On The Set (NEW behind the scenes footage); Audio Commentary with Director Dominique Othenin-Girard and actors Danielle Harris and Jeffrey Landman and Theatrical Trailer

Well Bidites we've got some disappointing news for you. Today we received review copies of the upcoming HALLOWEEN 4 & 5 Blu-rays, and the 30 minutes of deleted/alternate scenes were not on the disc, but they were mentioned on the press release that came with the discs.

You might be thinking, "isn't a review copy something that just has the movie, comes in a paper sleeve/plastic case, and doesn't really include anything else?" Yes, that's exactly what it is. However, these came shrink wrapped in Blu-ray cases with artwork. Since the actual release date (August 21st-According To Amazon, or August 28th-According To The Official Press Release) is so close I'm led to believe that these are FINAL releases.

Official Press Release That Lists The Deleted Scenes As A Bonus Feature

Back Of H4 Blu-ray Case

I popped the disc in to take a look, and while I LOVE the menu no option to view the footage is present, and I doubt they'd go through the trouble of making it an Easter Egg (A Hidden Feature On The Disc.) I'm still holding onto some small hope that these might be review copies and that the footage might be present when the Blu-ray is officially released later this month. I'm hoping we get some answers soon. I've tried to reach out to Anchor Bay about this, but have not gotten a response yet.

I'm curious, how many of you will still buy this release without the deleted scenes? Is a superior 1080p transfer with a DTS-HD-MA 5.1 audio track with a NEW commentary by Director Dwight H. Little & Author Justin Behmn enough to make you pick it up?

I feel that the sole reason a lot of you we're picking this up because these scenes were going to be included, but it looks like we were just being teased and set up for disappointment.

I'd go after them for false advertising, then.

I have to wonder why these Blu Ray producers keep dropping the ball on the Halloween movie releases. I've never been crazy about IV and V to begin with so it's an easy pass for me if there's nothing new to see.

I'll buy them too. I heard the transfers are amazing! I'm just a little let down that this footage was mentioned when it probably doesn't even exist. Of all the releases of H4 its just strange that it was mentioned now and never before.

I would buy them for the 1080p transfer, but am quite disappointed about the deleted scenes. I do feel that these and the other sequels need so much more included with the package, and not because I think the films aren't good. I feel that because I've seen them so many times, it would be nice to see them from other angles.
