ORIGINAL VHS SYNOPSIS: The most successful independent motion picture of all time... A horror classic starring Donald Pleasance, Jamie Lee Curtis, P.J. Soles and Nancy Loomis. Michael Meyers [sic] escapes from the Illinois State Mental Hospital after 15 years treatment for the brutal murder of his sister and is returning to Haddonfield to relive his crime. Michael sets about systematically killing his prey while Dr. Loomis searches for a clue that will lead him to Michael. What follows is a reign of terror. He came home for Halloween and may return....

WIKIPEDIA: Halloween is a 1978 American independent slasher film directed and scored by John Carpenter, co-written with producer Debra Hill, and starring Donald Pleasence and Jamie Lee Curtis in her film debut. The film was the first installment in what has become the Halloween franchise. The film was produced on a budget of $300,000 and grossed $47 million at the box office in the United States, and $70 million worldwide, equivalent to $250 million as of 2014, becoming one of the most profitable independent films. Many critics credit the film as the first in a long line of slasher films inspired by Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho (1960). Halloween had many imitators and originated several clichés found in low-budget horror films of the 1980s and 1990s. Unlike many of its imitators, Halloween contains little graphic violence and gore. In 2006, it was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".

Home video releases:
Since Halloween‍ '​s premiere, it has been released in several home video formats, including VHS, LaserDisc, DVD, UMD and Blu-ray Disc. Early VHS versions were released by Media Home Entertainment and Blockbuster Video issued a commemorative edition in 1995. Anchor Bay Entertainment (succeder in-interest to Media Home Entertainment and Video Treasures) has released several restored editions of the film on VHS and DVD, including "Halloween: Unmasked"; a documentary produced and directed by Mark Cerulli which featured an array of interviews with original Halloween cast and crew including Jamie Lee Curtis, Debra Hill, John Carpenter, Nick Castle and others. Anchor Bay has also released an "extended edition" of the film that features the original theatrical release with the scenes that were shot for the broadcast TV version edited in at their proper places. In 2003, a two-disc "25th Anniversary edition" was released with improved DiviMax picture and audio, along with an audio commentary by John Carpenter, Jamie Lee Curtis and Debra Hill, the A Cut Above The Rest documentary, On Location: 25 Years Later featurette, the trailer, TV spots, radio spots, poster and still gallery, and DVD-ROM content.

In 2007, Halloween was released on Blu-ray, marking the film's first ever Blu-ray release. The Blu-ray features a commentary track by Carpenter, Hill and Curtis, the trailer, TV spots, radio spots, fast film facts and the documentary Halloween: A Cut Above the Rest. In 2008, a "30th Anniversary Commemorative Set" was released, containing the film on DVD and Blu-ray along with the "extended edition", disc one of the 25 Years of Terror documentary DVD and the sequels: Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers and Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers, including a replica Michael Myers mask. The DVD release was THX certified. On Sep 24, 2013 a "35th Anniversary" Blu-ray release features an all-new high definition transfer supervised by Dean Cundey, a new commentary track by John Carpenter and Jamie Lee Curtis as well as a new 7.1 audio mix, the original mono audio mix, a new featurette with Curtis titled "The Night She Came Home", an "On-Location" featurette, the trailer, television and radio spots and the additional scenes from the extended television version. The 35th-anniversary release earned a Saturn Award for Best Classic Film Release. John Carpenter's Halloween has made $18,500,000 in home video rentals.
