A Few Halloween Goodies

A few games became free on the PlayStation Network recently namely the 2007 PSP game Valhalla Knights, and the first episode of Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead. These are a limited time offer and I downloaded them within the first three days of October. I’m not sure if they are still available or not.

I also have recently rewatched the movies of Halloween II, 4, and H20. Those are my favorites of the series and I’m sure not seeing the 1978 original listed might be a surprise. Regardless, they are the three I usually watch each year.

I’ve had them on DVD with Halloween II being a 2001 release, Halloween 4 from 2006, and H20 from 1999. I’ve noticed the seventh film doesn’t get treated well on home releases. The only DVD release is the 1999 version and the current Blu-ray version isn’t very good at all. Halloween 4, on the other hand (along with 5), gets commentaries, decent transfers, and the like.

Speaking of audio commentaries, I love them and I must have them if at all possible. I don’t like bad ones, however (Terminator 3 anyone?). Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers has two on the 2006 DVD and two on the 2012 Blu-ray. The one with Ellie Cornell and Danielle Harris are on both, but the DVD has one with the screenwriter and it’s switched out for a director commentary on the BD. I can’t get rid of the DVD release since its exclusive commentary is entertaining to listen to.

That’s enough spooky movies from me. What movie(s) do you watch every Halloween?

P.S.: Don’t miss out on Usagi704’s review of Dark Souls published yesterday.
