[Released] Halloween (1978) [Fundamental Collection™ #006]

Halloween (1978) [Fundamental Collection™ #006]

From the back cover: “Despite the fact "Halloween" latest release on Blu-ray restored the original color grading as seen in the theaters, many think that the 1999 THX DVD, which was directly supervised and approved by the film Director of Photography Dean Cundey, has still the best colors. Using the same THX SD master as color reference, we used our acclaimed proprietary technique ColourMatch™ to regrade a 2K mastertaken from the original negative.

We also included the theatrical, untouched mono English audio track in a great PCM 1.0, and added also the French, German, Italian and Spanish tracks in DD 1.0; more, as a gift for the collectors, we added as bonus a PCM 1.0 isolated score & effects track, and a new and old commentary; add to all this six subtitles tracks.

Superb color grading! For me, the big bonus is going to be the original mono audio. Thank you so much for your time and effort!

Thanks Jerry!

I like it more, two; beware that the regrade is from the THX DVD that was supervised and approved by DP Dean Cundey in 1999; the same who approved the 2013 35th Anniversary BD... Shocked

Now, if the first was a mistake, or the second was just because he was paid more... dunno! Devil

If I'm not mistaken the mono mix is not exclusive to this release. It is ported over from one of the other releases.

The 35th Anniversary mono track is a fold down from 5.1 for sure; dunno about other digital releases, though.

What are the sources for the audio on this BD?

I was just wondering which releases have the original mono mix and then which release has the best original mono mix?
