We recently shared the news that American Psycho is coming to 4K Ultra HD on September 25th from Lionsgate, and now it's been revealed that John Carpenter's Halloween will also be released on 4K Ultra HD before October arrives.

Confirmed by the official Halloween franchise website (HalloweenMovies.com), the 4K Ultra HD release of Halloween will come out from Lionsgate on September 25th in the US and Canada. The official artwork for the cover and disc can be viewed below.

No new special features have been announced at this time, but we'll keep Daily Dead readers updated on further announcements. The 4K Ultra HD version is now up for pre-order at Barnes & Noble and DiabolikDVD.

The September 25th release will give horror fans plenty of time to enjoy Carpenter's classic horror film before The Shape returns to theaters in the new Halloween movie. Will you be adding it to your home media collection?

Halloween 4K Ultra HD (via DiabolikDVD): "Halloween stars Jamie Lee Curtis (A Fish Called Wanda, True Lies) in her debut role. Anyone who’s ever watched a horror film in the last 35 years knows the story of Michael Myers, who as a child, butchered his sister with a kitchen knife. Committed to a mental institution and watched over by Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasance, Halloween II, IV & V, Fantastic Voyage), he engineers his escape 15 years later, returning to his hometown of Haddonfield, Illinois on Halloween night to terrorize anyone who gets in his way, including babysitter Laurie Strode (Curtis)."
