Halloween: 25th Anniversary Edition - Official specs
Following on from our previous article we now have the official specifications direct from Anchor Bay for their new 25th anniversary Region 1 DVD release of Halloween that is due August 5th 2003. For this release Anchor Bay have created a new high-definition widescreen transfer of the film and then mastered the DVD using DiViMax, their new High Definition film transfer process that provides state-of-the-art picture quality. Rounding off the set is a collection of bonus features including the once elusive Criterion audio commentary track...

A few points worth mentioning - these details come direct from the official Anchor Bay website where they have so far failed to elaborate on which cut of the film will be offered and what sound formats will be used. Based on our previous article it would be safe to assume we can expect to see the Theatrical Cut featuring the original Mono audio alongside an optional DD5.1 remix, and there is a possibility we shall see the extra scenes found in the Extended TV Cut on the second disc. So for the collector it would seem wise to hang on to your existing 2-disc set.
