Last year’s epic two-part animated adaptation of Batman: The Long Halloween is being rereleased as one feature film in a new Deluxe Edition, coming soon to 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD.
Originally published in 1996-1997, the 13-issue comic book story The Long Halloween, by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale, follows a serial killer who murders people on every holiday for a year, from Halloween to the next Halloween, and it also features many of Batman’s iconic villains as he investigates the murders over the course of that year. It’s still early in Batman’s crimefighting career and this is his toughest case so far, the first that can’t be solved by brute force and drive.
The official synopsis: Batman: The Long Halloween – Deluxe Edition begins as atrocious serial killings on holidays in Gotham City send The World’s Greatest Detective into action – confronting both organized crime and a unified front of classic DC Super-Villains – while attempting to stop the mysterious murderer.
The Deluxe Edition is rated R for violence and bloody images.
A release date for the 4K has not yet been announced, but we will update this article when it is.
