Calling all fans of Halloween II (1981) and Halloween III: Season of the Witch ! You’re in for a special treat this Halloween season as both films are being reissued from us in limited-edition Steelbook® packaging! Read on for more details:
- Official Release Date for is October 9th (and just ahead of the new Halloween film that stalks into theaters [October] 19th).
- Only 10,000 of each steelbook are being produced.
- Steelbooks will be shrinkwrapped. The Blu-rays included inside will have the same content (but with different disc label art) that is currently available in their respective Collector Edition releases but with one big exception: We are doing a NEW 4K scan film transfer on both!
- The artwork you see pictured on both come to us from by artist Nathanael Marsh (who also illustrated our prior John Carpenter-themed steelbooks). If you order directly from our site, your packaging will also include a 28.5” x 16.5” rolled lithograph of the illustrations. The litho will not be available elsewhere and only 1,000 of them each are being made.
As mentioned in the announcement, these releases are scheduled to hit the streets later this year on October 9th, which is conveniently just in time for David Gordon Green’s upcoming Halloween film. These are limited editions steelbooks and only 1,000 will be made of each respective title. As a bonus, if you order from Shout! Factory directly, you’ll receive a sweet new 28.5” x 16.5” rolled lithograph by Nathanael Marsh included with your order.
