Celebrating the 40th anniversary of the original 1978 theatrical release, and arriving just in time before the theatrical release of the newest film in the series, the Halloween 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack is loaded with special features..

On a black and unholy Halloween night years ago, little Michael Myers brutally slaughtered his sister in cold blood. But for the last fifteen years, town residents have rested easy, knowing that he was safely locked away in a mental hospital — until tonight. Tonight, Michael returns to the same quiet neighborhood to relive his grisly murder again...and again...and again. For this is a night of evil. Tonight is Halloween!
