Spooky season is upon us horror fans which means it’s almost time to start a Halloween marathon. The iconic John Carpenter slasher franchise turns 45 this year and is being celebrated in some very fun ways. Especially if you’re a physical media fan. Halloween H20: 20 Years Later and Rob Zombie’s Halloween duology are getting killer new steelbook releases this Fall. However, that’s not all as it’s just been announced that David Gordon Green’s Halloween trilogy is getting a stunning 4K steelbook boxset release.
This set includes Halloween (2018), Halloween Kills, and Halloween Ends. The three steelbook held in a collectible library case artfully depict the genre rematch of the century. Michael Myers versus Laurie Stoude. Michael is on Halloween (2018), the iconic Myers house divides them on Halloween Kills, and Laurie gets her much deserved revenge on Halloween End’s steelbook. The Orange color scheme is synonymous with the franchise and evokes the eerie mood perfectly. The set’s case also has beautifully haunting artwork of Michael about to strike with their staple kitchen knife and the dreaded Halloween night full of trick or treaters from the 2018 reboot.
Green’s Halloween Legacy
While this reboot trilogy was ultimately controversial in the end, like most Halloween sequels are, Green and star Jamie Lee Curtis set out to make the ultimate finale for the slasher franchise. Whether it was the classic feel of 2018, the extremely brutal nature of Kills, or the risk taking left turn of the copycat killer in Ends, each film felt creatively distinct from one another while still honoring the legacy of Carpenter’s original. Speaking of the horror legend, this new Halloween trilogy features some of Carpenter’s best music to date, and he has single-handedly put most other modern horror movies to shame. It’s definitely a trilogy that deserves a second look. Especially Ends as it brought the franchise’s theme of pure “evil” spreading like a virus full bloody circle.
