So Anchor Bay and Scream Factory have finally released all ten films on Blu-Ray but now in a box set.

This set comes with loads of extras such as interviews,Behind the scenes, Commentaries,Still Photo's,Never Before Seen Footage,TV Spots, Trailers,Set Locations,The Making Of The Movie,Storyboard Analysis,Meet The Cast,Casting Sessions and much more.

I now the price for this box set is pretty expensive for the common person.

Is it worth the price you pay for it well that all depends on where you buy it from most websites want anywhere from $189-$200 dollars !

Thats crazy right well you don't have to pay that price for it thats right you can get it way cheaper on ebay.

How much cheaper well i'm talking around only spending up to $60-$90 for it yeah that sure is really cheap don't you think.

I know when i first saw the price for it on Amazon i about died and could not believe my eyes.

So i went out of town to the local mall thinking i would buy it cheaper then what Amazon wanted for it well i was way wrong they wanted $300 dollars for it are they crazy so i didn't buy it there.

Finally the day came when i searched eaby and found one for $60 dollars and Free-Shipping.

You really can't go better than that but the only down side to it was that the collectors box was not mint it had some white marks on it from bad care from the seller but it wasn't that bad in shape everything was there with the box set noting was missing or broke.

Now to the review of the box set it self

So you might be thinking to yourself should i buy this is it really worth the time and money.

Does it come with much is it worth the time sitting down and watching the bonus content.

Yes i would tell you it is

These Blu-Ray box set comes with everything you would want it to come with.

Most people just want all the movies and thats it well they will get what they want from this box set just loads more on the disc's.

When i sat down and watched the first Halloween from 1978 it brought me back to the time period of 1978 i felt like i was in the movie and living the events that where happening.

Hands down the first Halloween movie by John Carpenter & Debra Hill is down fall the best it's just a classic i think.

It never gets old to me no matter how many times i watch it.

When i saw of the bonus features it brought with it i was very happy. It comes with two disc's with loads of cool stuff such as.

• HD transfer supervised and approved by cinematographer Dean Cundey

• NEW Audio Commentary With Director Of Photography Dean Cundey, Editor Tommy Lee Wallace And The Shape, Nick Castle

• Audio Commentary with Co-Writer/Director John Carpenter & Actress Jamie Lee Curtis.

• “The Night She Came Home” Featurette

• “On Location: 25 Years Later” Featurette

• TV Version Footage

• Television Spots

• Theatrical Trailer

• TV and Radio Spot

• Audio Commentary With Co-Writer/Director John Carpenter, Actress Jamie Lee Curtis and Co-Writer/Producer Debra Hill

• Featurette: Halloween: A Cut Above The Rest

• Theatrical Trailer

• TV and Radio Spots

For what comes with the first movie on two disc's i really can't as for more the TV Footage was very cool checking out i never have seen it before i wished they would have included that in the movie but they didn't i guess we will have to wait for a directors cut.

I did enjoy The Night She Came Home with Jame Lee Curtis that was pretty funny to see her and all of her fans.

When they visited the locations it was really awesome to see how the house's and streets have changed so much.

Another thing that stuck out to me was the fact that the filming locations are just like they were in the movie very quiet not much going on in fact there wasn't even a person walking down the street or even driving a car so i can see why they decided to film there.

Overall the first movie is great and for what it comes with it well worth the time.

Moving on to the Second film by John Carpenter & Debra Hill Halloween II 1981

I like the second movie it's probably the only one that really follows the first movie.

For what the two disc's brings it well worth the time and money.

• Audio commentary with director Rick Rosenthal and actor Leo Rossi (Theatrical version)

• Audio commentary with stunt co-ordinator/actor Dick Warlock (Theatrical version)

• Theatrical Version And “The Nightmare Isn’t Over: The Making Of Halloween II” Featuring Rick Rosenthal, Lance Guest, Dick Warlock, Alan Howarth, Dean Cundey, Leo Rossi and Moore…

• “Horror’s Hallowed Grounds: The Locations of Halloween II” – Host Sean Clark revisits the original shooting locations of the film

• Alternate Ending with Optional Audio Commentary from director Rick Rosenthal

• Theatrical Trailer

• TV and Radio Spots

• Still Gallery

Television Cut With Added Footage Not Seen In The Theatrical Version

I really like the features you get on these two discs it comes with lots to choose from.

Deleted scenes are always good to have because there might be something important in that scene.

Yet again you get another location tour which makes me happy i really do enjoy them.

They talk a little on how they made the second film and the problems they had with making it.

I never knew have of the stuff they talk about which is always good to find out more things form something you watch.

The main highlight for me is you get a Alternate Ending which you usually don't get for most movies you what now a days.

I really enjoyed it and i'm pretty happy for what the second films brings all together.

Now onto the third film well this is when it gets odd.

I don't mind this one that much i not a lot people hate it the biggest reason not having Michael in it.

It's not that all bad for a different twist to the next movie after Halloween II.

There are some things in this movie that make me want to pull my hair out mostly the ending of the movie i really don't like the ending.

Another thing as well this is not a big deal but to some people it is back in the day you couldn't really show that much nudity in movies.

I think it's kind of funny when you watch the first two Halloween movies they show a lot of it mostly just womans breast's and butt.

But during the filming of this one if you watch the special features they explain at the time you couldn't show a womans nipple which i think is kind of dumb but for some reason you couldn't now that no longer takes place but at the time you couldn't.

So there really isn't nudity in this one which is not a big deal anyway.

The death's are pretty sweet the plot is okay i think it works.

Heres what the disc comes with.

• Audio Commentary with director Tommy Lee Wallace

• “Stand Alone: The Making Of Halloween III: Season Of The Witch” featuring Tommy Lee Wallace, Tom Atkins, Stacey Nelkin, Dick Warlock, Dean Cundey and more

• “Horror’s Hallowed Grounds” – Revisiting the original shooting locations

• Still Gallery

• Theatrical Trailers

• TV Spots

The making of the movie is pretty cool to watch even the directors really don't like the movies that much.

I would say to close with the third movie if you can get over the fact that Michael is not in this one then your probably like it.

Now onto the fourth film.

So what do i think of this well it's better then the season of the witch i would say that for it.

The only problem i have with is one is the mask they choose for Michael to wear it looks so crappy and dumb i don't like it at all.

The plot for this one is good as always Micheal finally comes back to kill.

This movie is pretty good it takes a time to get started.

For what the disc brings is not much sadly.

Audio Commentary with Actors Ellie Cornell and Danielle Harris

• Audio Commentary with Director Dwight H. Little and Author Justin Beahm

• Theatrical Trailer

Overall Halloween VI is okay but not the best.

Moving onto the filth well not much i can really say about this one.

Michael comes back once again and this time nobody wants to deal with him.

The plot is okay as well but the actors they choose for the movie are just dumb these are the kind of actors you just don't care about when they get killed off.

Donald Pleasence is back again he is really good in this one so it makes the movie worth a watch.

They also fixed Michaels mask finally the other one was just to cheap this one looks way more scary.

For what the disc brings is pretty good but not much.

• Audio Commentary with Actor Don Shanks and Jeffrey Landman

• Audio Commentary with Director Dominique Othenin-Girard and Actors Danielle Harris And Jeffrey Landman

• Halloween 5: On The Set

• Halloween 5: Original Promo

• Theatrical Trailer

Now onto the sixth film well this one is a big mess.

The plus for this one is the fact we get the Producer’s Cut which is really awesome.

Now onto the movie itself do i love it or do i hate well i like the Producer’s Cut more than Theatrical Cut.

The plot is a big mess as well and the way the movie ends it has two cuts you either love them or hate them.

On the Theatrical Cut the ending you have is when tommy beats Michael to death with a metal pole i find this just stupid he can be burned to death but can't die but when he get's hit loads of times with a metal pole this is how he meets his end or so we think.

As the movie is almost over we hear Donald Pleasence screaming and you see Michaels mask laying on the floor.

With the Producer's Cut towards the ending we see Michael laying on the floor and stuck in a circle of stones. Donald Pleasence touches Micheal only to find out it isn't him and Michael has escaped then wee see he now has a thorn on his arm and he will be the new care keeper for Micheal and we see him scream.

You get two discs with this and it comes with a lot you should be happy with the bonus content.

• Theatrical Trailer

• TV Spots

• Still Gallery

Overall the disc's come with good stuff the movies not the best but its one of those movies where you decide if it for you or not.

Now onto the seventh film.

First off the plot for the film is pretty good there's more action and deaths which is always good.

You get a load of bonus content which is also really good as always.

This movie is not the best or worst but it does live up to the fight scenes with Jamie Lee Curtis which is really cool now shes stronger than she has even been.

I think this should have been the last Halloween movie but nope they just couldn't leave Micheal to RIP.

For what it comes with is pretty good and worth a watch.

• Presented in the correct 2.35:1 Aspect Ratio

• NEW Commentary With Director Steve Miner And Jamie Lee Curtis, Moderated By Sean Clark

• NEW “The Making of Halloween H20” Featuring Jamie Lee Curtis, Josh Hartnett, Jodi Lyn O’Keefe, Nancy Stephens, Adam Hann-Byrd, Tom Kane, Editor Patrick Lussier, Producer Malek Akkad, Producer Paul Freeman, Composer John Ottman, Chris Durand (Michael Myers), Writer Robert Zappia, Stunt Co-Ordinator Donna Keegan, Make-Up Brad Hardin And Cinematographer Daryn Okada

• Vintage Interviews And Behind-The-Scenes Footage

• Theatrical Trailer

Now to the ninth well this movie is just like season of the witch some people love it and some hate it.

I don't mind this one but the only reason this was made because of box office money.

The plot is good but Jamie is killed off way to soon which pretty much defeats you into watching the rest of the movie.

It's pretty much just the same stuff going on you have stupid teens who don't care about anything but sex and parties which it's like we haven't seen that before.

Overall unless your a really big Halloween fan where you have to have movie after movie this is not for you.

It comes with loads of stuff which is always good.

• Audio Commentary With Director Rick Rosenthal And Editor Robert A. Ferretti

• Alternate Endings

• Deleted Scenes

• Featurette: “Head Cam”

Now for the Remake of Halloween.

Wow Rob Zombie sure knows how to do it thats for sure i really do like this one after the last couple of Halloween movies Michael got turned into a laughing stock he wasn't scary anymore and his named was ruined.

Rob Zombie knew this and he made a movie that made Michael into a monster again.

Michael is no joke in this movie he means and he stands a 6,8 he's a big man.

I do like how Rob Zombie took this Remake because most Remakes are really bad but this lived up to the name Halloween.

The plot is mostly the same as it was in 1978 from the first Halloween.

There are some new twists and turns that i like about this mostly being that Micheal is more darker than ever and if i ever ran into this version of him i would be afraid of him.

If you like lots of nudity then this movie won't disappoint you i do like how they show a deeper look into Michael's childhood which is really good because you can see why he turned out to be.

There is a lot of action and really good deaths in his one.

The cast is for once pretty good which is hard to find people that can act well now of days.

Overall if you like your horror killer being more dark and more evil than this movie is for you.

Plus you get loads of extras which is always really good !

• Unrated Director’s Cut With Audio Commentary By Writer/Director Rob Zombie

• Deleted Scenes With Optional Commentary

• Alternate Ending With Optional Commentary

• Bloopers

• Featurette: “The Many Faces Of Michael Myers”

• Re-Imagining Halloween

• Meet The Cast

• Casting Sessions

• Scout Taylor-Compton Screen Test

• Theatrical Trailer

• Documentary: “Michael Lives: The Making of Halloween (4 ½ hours)

Overall you get so much with this one.

Now to the last well this is really a big mess i do like this Remake but i hate the ending of the movie.

I not happy that Daeg Faerch was re-casted i understand that Rob Zombie wanted him to look young but Daeg gotten older and his voice has changed.

But thats mainly the only problem with it that i have.

The plot is okay but really hard to wrap around your head as far as understanding it.

There is just to much stuff going on having a white horse following Micheal where ever he goes and a younger Micheal following the older Michael and his dead mother.

The deaths are just as good as they where in 2007 Remake which is always good.

Overall i can sit down and watch this Remake but it's not as good as the other Remake by Rob Zombie.

I really hope the film directors are done with Halloween just let Michael Myers Rip.

This also comes with a lot as well.
