Another project complete. Pretty much all the credit for this goes to spoRv, as the video and audio is taken from the Halloween Fundamental Collection. Aside from being authored as a blu ray, the main benefit of this project is all the special features from the Criterion Laserdisc are preserved and as far as I am aware some of them never have been before.
- BD25 with animated menus that look and behave like the official Criterion discs, with a background video, pop up menus and resume function
- Video taken from the Halloween Fundamental Collection by spoRv
- Original chapter stops used on the laserdisc
- English 1.0 LPCM taken from the LD
- Music & Effects Track 1.0 LPCM taken from the LD
- Criterion audio commentary taken from the LD
- English, French, German and Spanish Subtitles
- Original Theatrical Trailer (HD)
- The Night He Came Home (illustrated making of - SD)
- Review by Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert (SD)
- Illustrated filmographies of John Carpenter, Jamie Lee Curtis and Donald Pleasence (SD)
- Splatter: A Genre Guide (SD)
- Extra scenes from the TV Version (SD)
- Laserdisc Production Credits (SD)
Unfortunately it’s not easy to gets images of blu ray menus as a decent player like PowerDVD has the screenshot facility disabled and a not very good program like DVD Fab can’t handle the menus correctly, but I did manage to get the image below.
