Halloween: 25 Years of Terror (R2) in October

Starz Home Entertainment have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of Halloween: 25 Years of Terror on 22nd October 2007 priced at £19.99. In 1978, director John Carpenter changed the face of horror cinema and made movie history with Halloween, the terrifying account of psycho killer Michael Myers' horrific rampage through the small town of Haddonfield.

A quarter of a century after the events of that fateful night, Halloween: 25 ears of Terror revisits Haddonfield to discover the triumphs, controversies and groundbreaking influence of the greatest horror movie franchise ever with the most comprehensive Halloween documentary ever produced. Narrated by Halloween star P.J. Soles and featuring rare behind the scenes footage and interviews with cast and crew members, including John Carpenter, Debra Hill, Jamie Lee Curtis, Moustapha Akkad, plus fans such as Rob Zombie, Clive Barker, Edgar Wright and Kim Newman, Halloween: 25 Years of Terror is described as the ultimate retrospective look at the entire Halloween saga.

Released as a two-disc DVD set that includes the digitally remastered version of Carpenter's original movie, Halloween: 25 Years of Terror also comes packed with extras features that include extensive footage filmed at the H25 Convention in South Pasadena (the actual filming location for the fictional Haddonfield).
