Does anyone know how likely it is that Shout will release the rest of the series (6-10)? I don't know much about the rights situation with those. I would assume they would be able to release them pretty easily. I'll hold off buying if it's likely there will be another box set down the road.

Maybe they plan to release them next September before Halloween Ends releases?
Its strange alright.

They released everything together in the BD set. Not sure why its just the first 5 for 4K? And it makes no sense to release 6-10 for the new film.....

If you really want these, I'd preorder and ask questions later. If something else happens down the line, you should have no problem offloading these.

There was something about teaming up with somebody else for the BD box set. Cant remember who. Maybe Anchor Bay or Miramax or something.....?

Maybe that's complicating a new set here?

Figured that's what it was.

@ManRay there you go......
Rights for the other films are no longer with Anchor Bay
Scream could only licence 1-5 from Lionsgate and Universal for the 4K UHD release

The previous complete box set collection from Scream Factory was a joint Scream/Anchor Bay release


For those based outside USA that want the vinyl edition releases
You can order from Sacred Bones Records these have a different colour vinyl exclusive to Sacred Bones Records



Note all are Blu-ray releases even though DVD is mentioned when you click select edition
Thanks. I'll probably just order these then.

I think Paramount has the rights to 6-10. It's more likely that Shout won't renew rights for 1-5 and they will revert to Paramount. Then it's up to them if they want to release a full box set. Regardless, very unlikely to get a Shout Factory box set of all of them together. I would hope that if it was a possibility, they would have waited to release a box set.

Paramount will not be getting rights to 1-5 as the rights are with Lionsgate and Universal
Scream Factory licenced from Lionsgate and Universal to do the 4K UHD releases of 1-5

6-10 was Miramax and Dimension Films (The Weinstein Company)
Paramount only had distribution to 6/7/8 for a period of time after dimension fillm lost the rights to halloween and collapse of The Weinstein Company

On July 31, 2018, Lantern Entertainment who purchased The Weinstein Company assets signed a distribution deal with Lionsgate for the Weinstein Company's library

Universal has the rights to the new Halloween Films
Universal owns the rights to the original halloween films 2/3 and the new films
Lionsgate has the distribution rights to 1/4/5/6/7/8/9/10

To be fair releasing them all in one go as a box set in 4k would stretch anyone's finances and all but the richest people would be able to buy them in one go...

Whilst it'll be nice to have all the Halloween movies in one 4k boxset, I already have the original deluxe boxset Shout brought out all those years ago.

With the release of these new editions in rigid slip cases with the new artwork I'd rather them continue the trend and release them all individually with the same style artwork and slipcases

I would love for them to so their own releases of Halloween 2018 and Halloween Kills next if they can't get the rights for the 6-10 movies

I agree with this, the retail on just this five alone in dollars is like $185, so with the other five it'd be like $370 and closer to $480 if they included the new trilogy which would only make sense for a complete boxset.

Amazon USA price drop to $27.99 on each release
Ordered with this price earlier today, since Amazon CA doesn't have these listed. With the new prices, this is currently the best price for any Canadians out there that want just the movies. Might cancel if Amazon CA gets them for less, but not holding out hope.

These are up on Amazon Canada now, prices are round $39.99 Canadian

Not shipping to the UK though - always strange with Amazon CA, some new releases you can preorder and have sent to the UK (like the Friday the 13th collection for example), and some aren't

I wouldn't be surprised if they disappear from both sites.

Since when could you ever purchase any Shout Factory release from Zavvi?
Zavvi USA is now a separate website from Zavvi UK since a few months now

There are other USA only releases on Zavvi USA you won't see listed on Zavvi UK

Examples Arrow Video USA only releases

Greetings from Scream Factory!

It’s Halloween, everyone’s entitled to one good scare. We can't wait to usher in October with Michael, Laurie, Dr. Loomis, and the rest of the Haddonfield residents.

Before we get to the bonus features below we want to remind you that we are once again collaborating with John Carpenter and Sacred Bones by offering a 12" vinyl splatter variant of the new Halloween Kills soundtrack. The Halloween Kills soundtrack is the work of a master artist who, nearly 50 years into his career, continues to push his creative limits and find new ways to thrill and terrify his fans.

These are now available to order on Zavvi UK which is great. I'm hoping we continue to get shout releases on there.. but the price £37.99 pffft. That's just mad. I'll wait for a drop.
