Halloween (1978) Criterion Laserdisc Theatrical Mono Synced to 4K UHD Blu-ray
#1
Here's a quick and dirty project: I've synced the Crtiterion Mono audio, courtesy of Sporv's release, to the new 4K Blu-ray. All it involved was adding some silence to the beginning, and voila! We now have the proper theatrical audio, which was mistakenly omitted from the new release, which includes a fold-down of the surround track instead of the original mono.

My file is a .wav and can easily be muxed with the 4K video. This played flawlessly via Plex on my TV and should play fine on pretty much everything.

Uploaded to MEGA, PM for links. Will only send to active members, as per usual around these parts.

Out of curiosity, what exactly is the main difference between the mono and remixed surround stereo version apart from the obvious?

I don't know all the changes, but I know there is new foley like lightning, wind, etc. as well as changes to pitch of certain lines (the speed kills one in particular)

There is at least one changed music cue, as well (one of the stingers).

I was literally doing this same thing a few nights ago. I just recently got a 4K drive able to rip UHD discs. Haha

I have always wondered what the differences are in the original audio. Not old enough to have seen this in theaters and never owned laserdisc.

I saw it on VHS first, then the DVD after that, which was the THX version with the digital orange tint and remixed audio. And many years later, I was lucky enough to see it on a battered old 35 mm print... to which I turned up dressed as The Shape (and surprisingly was the only one who did that). I went with a friend of a fairly nervous disposition who kept periodically forgetting I was in costume and kept catching sight of me out of his peripheral vision during the film and leaping off his seat, which was extremely funny.

There are a few noticeable changes in the remix, but the one that probably stands out the most to me is added fake sounding synthy thunder noises when Loomis is in the car before they discover the patients wandering about outside in the dark. Reminds me of the extremely goofy synthesised "I'm supposed to sound like asteroids whizzing past" noise added in the early 90s LaserDisc remix for STAR WARS.

That does sound hilarious. That is awesome you got to see an actual 35mm print of the film. Even more awesome you dressed as The Shape for the occasion. Also, thanks for the response on the differences.
