    Scream Factory gives you more for More Of The Night HE Came Home! This isn’t just an ordinary re-release, it’s a fan’s dream come true! You might say, it out does Universal’s 30th AE (sort of, read on)! What’s it include? Well:Audio commentary with director Rick RosenthalAudio commentary with stunt co-ordinator/actor Dick WarlockThe Nightmare Isn’t Over – The Making Of Halloween II, featuring Rick Rosenthal, Lance Guest, Dick Warlock, Alan Howarth, Dean Cundey and more..Horror’s Hallowed Grounds: Revisiting the original shooting locationsStill GalleryTheatrical Trailer, TV and Radio SpotsAnd for the Coup De Grace, a second disc contaning the famed TV Cut with additional/alternate footage (although the R-Rated material is edited out). The TV cut will be on a DVD disc for both format releases.Now don’t start getting rid of your 30th AE just yet! Although the CE is pretty awesome and includes the Deleted (TV) Scene and Alternate Ending via the TV Cut, it misses out on the movie…
