Before Jason, before Freddy, before Jigsaw, there was Michael Myers. What producers Moustapha Akkad, Debra Hill and Irwin Yablans, writer/director John Carpenter and stars Jamie Lee Curtis & Donald Pleasence started in 1978 has transformed into one of the most durable, iconic and studied horror film franchises ever created. Over the years, audiences have lived and relived the terrors of Michael Myers through ten feature films, as well as various re-edits and alternate versions. Yet to date, the complete saga of Michael Myers could only be told in pieces, in individual Blu-ray and DVD, with the rights spread across multiple home entertainment studios.
The 15-disc Limited Edition deluxe set is spread across 15 discs and includes every Halloween feature film:
- Halloween (Original & 35th Anniversary)
- Halloween II
- Halloween III: Season of the Witch
- Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers
- Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers
- Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers

It also comes with a limited edition 40-page book written by Michael Gingold of Fangoria Magazine.
