About this deal

Editor's Note: This was originally published for FANGORIA on July 25, 2006, and we're proud to share it as part of The Gingold Files . Ein wenig mehr Kommentare von Jamie Lee Curtis, als wichtige Hauptdarstellerin hätte ich mir dann noch gewünscht. The titular 84-minute documentary is surrounded by such a surfeit of supplementary material that it almost becomes too much of a good thing, even to a die-hard Halloween fan like myself. It examines why the films are so popular and revisits many of the original locations used in the films - seeing the effects on the local community.

I have been a fan of Halloween since first seeing it many years ago and being truly scared by what I saw. In other taped panels, H4 and 5 heroine Ellie Cornell is most likable; cinematographer Dean Cundey is intriguingly technical; and a Michael Myers reunion allows seven of the masked murderer’s alter egos to reveal their favorite kill scenes and recount the various injuries they suffered. The documentary does get a little bogged down at times in showing clips of the movie, but the interviews are quite wonderful to see. Chock full of cool information and rare tidbits, this one is, to my knowledge, really the first out of the gate in terms of a fan-made FULL retrospective on a film. A fine documentary about the franchise (the first 8 movies) and interviews with people who work on those movies.There are other features on the 4 disc's that I haven't listed but as you can see 4 disc's the original film and hours of features. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. The documentary proper follows the chronological history of the franchise by way of film clips and interviews with just about anybody who had anything to do with Halloween and its successors, from Carpenter, producer Debra Hill and star Jamie Lee Curtis to a few of the folks behind the unfortunate Halloween: Resurrection, the last release in the series to date. This was a documentary produced for the series' 25th anniversary and covers the franchise up till Resurrection.

The bonus features contains many panel discussions, so if you love those, you will appreciate the second disc from this set. For the first time, cast, crew, critics and fans join together in the ultimate 'Halloween' retrospective. While there's likely to be a fair amount of information contained herein that die hard fans already know, 'A Cut Above the Rest' does work nicely as a primer on all things "Halloween".

Es fehlen nur die Bewertungen der neusten Teile der Reihe, da es diese eben noch nicht zum Zeitpunkt des Erscheinens der Dokumentation gab, sonst wäre perfekt geworden. If they haven't already seen 'A Cut Above the Rest', they should either pick up the 25th anniversary two disc DVD release or the more recent Blu- ray to check it out; they won't be disappointed.

Topics discussed include the logistics of shooting certain scenes - like that now legendary opening set piece, the challenge of making various California locations, in the spring, look like the Midwest in the autumn, the hiring of key players Donald Pleasence and Jamie Lee Curtis, Carpenter's composition of his now iconic score, and the incredible legacy of the movie - not just its own succession of sequels (some of which get mentioned briefly) but the onslaught of slasher movies to come, with some of those choosing to centre around a national holiday as well. The buffs’ enthusiasm is celebrated through a look at assorted props and memorabilia, and snippets from numerous tribute videos; among the most amusing are one done in claymation and another in which two actors perform a brief condensed version of the entire series. Intensely driven, he overcame personal and professional challenges to secure his place amongst the greatest vocalists in history. The disc will play perfectly without interruption and the case, inlay notes and sleeve may show limited signs of wear. Sending the stage appearances off on a high note, Akkad and Yablans appear together, fielding audience ideas for the ninth film, going into detail on the ’78 film’s origins and giving both their fellow Halloween creators and the franchise’s devotees due appreciation.I was impressed by the collection of interesting documentaries and interviews over the four discs and having a remastered copy to replace my outdated VHS copy is very satisfying.

Exclusive 4DVD Version 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.

The impetus is a Halloween convention held in South Pasadena (site of the original filming), from which a considerable amount of footage is drawn.Particularly those who enjoy the wave of groundbreaking films from the seventies among which was this first classic monsterpiece that started it all. Interessante Doku mit Interviews der Darsteller und Mitarbeiter hinter der Kamera, am Set und der Leute aus der Maske, zum 25. For those of us who have been following this film series for years—the devotees to whom this package is most directly pitched—some of the two-disc set’s material covers pretty familiar ground, but there are also plenty of surprises and enough fresh material to satisfy even the most jaded Michael Myers maniac. It truly stands at the head of a long list of films that tried to copy, but ultimately didn't quite achieve the standard.
