by Marc Patterson
Not even a month ago we announced that Shout! Factory would be releasing Halloween 2 and 3 onto Blu-ray, an event that marked the first time either film would see a Blu release. Just today, moments ago, we got word that on August 28th Anchor Bay will be giving Halloween 4 and Halloween 5 the Blu treatment. They’ve gone in and given both films new transfers and are stocking the discs with bonus features created just for these releases. See below for the lowdown and keep an eye out for our official reviews to coincide with the August release date.
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?

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.
