[Released] Halloween Criterion Laserdisc Preservation
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. 

PM me for the links, contributing members only please.

That looks terrific -- great work!! The FC version by spoRv is fantastic, so this is just the icing on the cake. Well done.

This is amazing! I'm new here and hopefully will be able to start contributing. I'd love a copy of this and would even send a donation if that's OK.
