The audio is also very good. The track is 5.1 Dolby TrueHD and it is nice and loud, with perfect dialogue clarity and really packs a punch for the jump scares and musical stings. The rears nicely bring you in with the rustling of leaves and wind. Very nice track.
Extras. This Warner Premiere release has some nice extras along with it.
- Commentary. The track features Michael Dougherty and a few others involved with the production. It is a great track where they talk about the visual gags and the history of the production, casting process, effects, and plenty more. This is a fantastic track that you really should listen to.
- "Season's Greetings." This is the original animated short that introduced the Sam character. Delightful. There is also a commentary track for the short.
- Additional Scenes. Extended and alternate takes of what appears in the film, also with optional commentary.
- How Did Many of Our Scary Season Traditions Start? This is pretty cool. It is not so much about the film directly, but you can see elements that help the movie work so well.
- School Bus FX Comparison. This is neat, it looks at the bus crash and the different FX pieces used to make it look the way it does in the film.
Bottom line. This is a great film with fun charactors, entertaining stories, and an infectious energy that welcomes you back over and over again. The movie also teaches you to respect the holiday, lest Sam pay you a visit. If you like horror movies, Halloween, or fun, this is the movie for you.
