The Halloween Box Sets Are coming!

Michael Myers fans rejoice!

When I was a kid, I was very sheltered. I didn’t watch any horror movies at all, really. My mother wouldn’t allow it, you see. And then, one Halloween, when I was 16, my father came home with a Michael Myers mask for me and we sat up watching the first Halloween film on TV. Thus began my obsession with horror.

And now, a decade later, the most comprehensive box set of Halloween films is being released! Here’s the rundown:
