In a single horrifying night, Michael Myers’ masked reign of terror changed Halloween forever. Now, six years after he was presumed dead in a fire, Myers has returned to kill again—and this time there’s no escape. As the homicidal fury builds to a spine-tingling climax, the long-hidden secrets of the screen’s most maniacal murderer are revealed… with shocking results.
SPECIAL FEATURES – 0/5
Once again, there’s nothing at all on the disc. To be fair, from what I could tell the DVD releases did not have anything either…
VIDEO – 3.25/5
Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers is fairly soft lacking a certain amount of detail I expect from a Blu-ray release, even one that’s 26 years old. That being said, it’s not a bad transfer just unremarkable. Colors though do look well balanced without going to the extremes. I did notice some dust and scratch marks here and there but it’s not overly abundant.
AUDIO – 3.5/5
The DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 track isn’t bad but because it’s relegated to two channels, various audio elements do top out a few times. Dialogue though is very crisp and clear while everything else gets modest treatment elsewhere.
OVERALL – 2/5
Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers is just another pointless/useless horror sequel made to grab as much money from the diehard fans while coming up with a nonsensical story that would only be rectified with Halloween H20 but then further dismantled in Halloween Resurrection. The Blu-ray itself is just OK with moderate video and audio transfers but once again, it has no features.
