Rating: PG-13 Stars: Olivia Cooke, Ana Coto, Daren Kagasoff, Bianca Santos, Douglas Smith, Shelley Hennig, Lin Shaye Writers: Juliet Snowden & Stiles White Director: Stiles White Distributor: Universal Release Date: October 24, 2014 Maybe this isn’t what happened at all.

Distributor: Anchor Bay/Shout! Factory Suggested Retail Price: $169.99 The significance of HALLOWEEN: THE COMPLETE COLLECTION LIMITED EDITION, which brings together all 10 films under once roof, is not lost among die-hard films.
