HND Giveaway: Two Copies of HALLOWEEN 2 Up for Grabs


Posted by:

Everyone likes free stuff and everyone wants free stuff and I happen to have some free stuff that I can give away, but not to everyone.   Unlike the JU-ON: THE GRUDGE giveaway, however, two people will end up finding their mailbox stuffed with free stuff this time around.  And if you couldn’t deduce it from the cryptic headline, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has given me two copies of Rob Zombie’s HALLOWEEN 2 to giveaway in honor of the film’s release on DVD and Blu-ray tomorrow, January 12th.

Having not actually seen the film, I’m not one to smite it just yet, but I think it’s safe to say you already know whether or not this is something you’d like to have in your collection.  So head on up to the contact button in the top right of this page and make use of your keyboard.  Send me an email with the subject line “H2 For Free Please” and you’re good to go.  Let’s say you have until Thursday at noon CST to accomplish this burdensome task.

Theatrical Trailers and Clips

Remakes

Theatrical Trailers and Clips

  • HALLOWEEN 2 – Clip from Entertainment Tonight.
  • CREEK – Lionsgate has yet to pin a release date for Joel Schumacher’s Nazi experiments flick once titled TOWN CREEK.

Studio News and Attachments

  • Fox Atomic Dies – Fox Atomic is, in all likelihood, getting folded back in to 20th Century Fox.  How this alters plans for JENNIFER’S BODY or the hypothetical 28 MONTHS LATER is unclear.
  • OFFSPRING – Ghost House Pictures picks up Jack Ketchum’s OFFSPRING, joins already acquired THE CHILDREN and SEVENTH MOON.
  • DRAG ME TO HELL – Looks like Ghost House opted to release the PG-13 variant.  Don’t blame ‘em.
  • ALL THE BOYS LOVE MANDY LANE – Has a US theatrical date of July 17th, which is 361 days after the film’s release on DVD and Blu-ray in the UK; oh, and those discs are only $8 and $15, respectively.  Despite having a region listing on the back, my Blu of MANDY LANE plays just fine in a PS3.  This wait is ridiculous.
  • THANKSGIVING – Eli Roth is currently pitching a deal to direct a more accessible disaster(ish) film for $80mil if the studio involved will also pay $5mil for a feature length do-up of the hit trailer.

Remakes

  • MY BLOODY VALENTINE 3-D – Lionsgate has no plans for a sequel, but has 30 minutes of deleted scenes and an alternate ending ready for the disc due in May.
  • FRIDAY THE 13TH – Out on DVD and BRD June 16th.
