Pretty sure I've seen it there for $9.99. Will pick it up once it gets down there again.

I picked it up for $9.99 at Frys on one of their sales, but price has been higher lately.

I'm really not sure why HighDefDigest is promoting this sale. In one of their own reviews, they suggested to the readers to "skip it", mainly because of the video transfer.

Here's a link to the review:

Nevermind that review, the color timing may be off but still this is the best Halloween has looked. Definitely worth a purchase if you like the movie and aren't too anal.

I haven't personally seen the Blu-ray transfer but I usually place a lot of confidence in the reviews on this site. I just thought it was strange that there was conflicting information regarding the same title on the same website.

BTW...the lowest price on Amazon in the past year for this title has been $11.99. Been $12.99 six other times within the same time frame.

I picked this Halloween up for $12.99 and the remake for $14.99 at Best Buy about 2 weeks ago.

I agree. I thought it looked great compared to past editions.

Same here. The reviewer on this site trashed it solely because of the color timing, but the actual level of detail in the picture is awesome. Blows the DVD's out of the water. It basically comes down to the personal preference of the reviewer because one thing that cannot be denied is that it's a great transfer outside of the color timing. I thought the color looked fine myself. I don't give a crap about the super-saturated blue filter that the reviewer was yearning for.
