Stop the Presses!

This super-hot DVD release news just in! On August 14, Anchor Bay will release John Carpenter's Halloween yet again. This edition, according to Bloody-Disgusting, the film will be packaged in an "O-card". I have no clue what an "O-card" is (does it have to do with O-Town? or Oprah? or The Story of O?), so thank heavens B-D explains for me: "The new O-card takes the iconic Halloween logo to a whole new level of cool, featuring “glowing” jack-o-lantern eyes and nose artwork."

Isn't that great news? If you've somehow never been able to get your mitts on a copy of Halloween- not the Regular edition, the Extended edition, the Divimax 25th Anniversary edition, the 25 Years of Terror edition, the Restored Limited edition, the Scratch-n-Sniff edition, or even the Holograph edition- then your luck may finally be in. Of course, even if you already have all the previous editions of the DVD, this seems worth buying- I mean...new logo! Can I get a woot woot?

In other news, don't forget that come Monday, I'll be talking about The Innocents for the latest installment of the FG Film Club. Be there...and be square.

In other other news, have a super weekend.

"What's that smell?"

It's time to cash in. Anchor Bay, I'm ashamed of you.

I feel like the slow kid at the party. I hadn't ever seen Halloween until a couple of months ago so I missed out on all the re-re-re-re-re-re-release anticipation (did I get all of the "re's" in there?).

Yeah, what is that smell?

So they're re-selling the whole movie with a shiny new logo? That's it? And people will buy it?

I want the scratch-and-sniff edition. What does the sweat inside the William Shatner mask smell like? Hate?

My review of The Innoncents should be up in a day or so at Fatally-Yours.com

An O-card is a cardboard sleeve that wraps around the plastic DVD case. Sometimes the artwork is identical to what's inside (in which case, what's the point?) but more and more frequently, companies are using the O-card to do stuff like glossy printing, foil effects, and 3-dimensionality. A beautiful example of the latter is the recent Pan's Labyrinth DVD, which has an O-card that makes Pan's face literally rise out of the cardboard... ooh, spooky!

I assume the Halloween re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re O-card will have the pumpkin/knife face similarly embossed for the 3-D effect, and maybe some fluorescent or glow-in-the-dark ink for the eyes and nose.

So nows you knows.

Ah! Thanks, abearaware! I always throw those cardboard thingies away.
