Buy on Amazon

Universal Pictures Home Entertainment has just added the new Halloween to its line-up, scheduling the latest film in the franchise for release on 4K UHD, Blu-Ray Disc and DVD in January.

Forty years after the events of 1978’s Halloween, Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee 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.

The release will come packed with bonus features, including a selection of Deleted and Extended Scenes, including 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 and Sartain and Hawkins Ride Along.

Also included are a host of Featurettes, such as Back in Haddonfield: Making Halloween, The Original Scream Queen, The Sound of Fear, Journey of the Mask and The Legacy of Halloween.

Halloween will be in stores on January 15 and can be yours for $39.99 as a 4K UHD/Blu-Ray combob, $34.98 on Blu-Ray Disc and $29.99 on DVD.
