‘Halloween’ 2018 Blu-ray Release Date, Bonus Features Announced
Michael Myers has come home, and the film that brought him there is about to do the same, as Universal Pictures has officially announced the release date for when Halloween 2018 (read our review here) will be available on Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD, DVD, and Digital VOD, as well as a list of bonus features that will be included.
The new Halloween will arrive on digital platforms on Dec. 28, followed by various Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K Ultra HD combo options arriving on January 15, 2019.
Among the more than 30 minutes of new bonus content, seven deleted/extended scenes will be included, but unfortunately it looks like no commentary tracks.
The bonus features for the DVD/Blu-ray/4K releases include:
- Deleted/Extended Scenes
- Extended Shooting Range
- Shower Mask Visit
- Jog to a Hanging Dog
- Allyson and Friends at School
- Cameron and Cops Don’t Mix
- Deluxe Banh Mi Cops
- Sartain and Hawkins Ride Along
- Back in Haddonfield: Making Halloween
- The Original Scream Queen
- The Sound of Fear
- Journey of the Mask
- The Legacy of Halloween
One of those deleted scenes, “Shower Mask Visit”, which was featured in many of the TV ads promoting the film, has already been officially released online to celebrate today’s home video announcement. The scene, featuring our friend Rhian Rees (read our interview here), is actually almost identical to a scene that was filmed but never used for Halloween: Resurrection, in which Daisy McCrackin’s character is taking a shower when she is scared by a prankster in a Michael Myers mask. (Read all about it in our interview with Daisy here.)
You can watch the deleted shower scene below.
The new official synopsis: “Forty years after the events of 1978’s Halloween, Laurie Strode (Curtis) now lives in a heavily guarded home on the edge of Haddonfield, where she’s spent decades preparing for Michael’s potential return. After being locked up in an institution, Myers manages to escape when a bus transfer goes terribly wrong, leading to chaos in the same town he preyed on decades earlier. Laurie now faces a terrifying showdown when the deranged killer returns for her and her family – but this time, she’s ready for him.”
