I love this movie it brought back so many memories of me and brothers. They have both passed away now and this is the fondest memory i have running to the tv to watch this movie ever single time it came on in October and we watched every year so i will watch it with my daughter and their children. I hoped i would see it this year on tv but i know it to late to request but i hope in the future it will be played but i will buy it for now.

I am an avid Ray Bradbury and Halloween fan. So, the combination of the two is just natural and wonderful. I have been waiting for an official DVD release ofthis special for over a decade. When I first saw this I actually thought it was a spam ad, because it is quite literally a standard transfer to DVD job. No extras, no restoration, and it's made to order. But, it's WBshop, so we all know it's legit. I know I am not the only Bradbury buff who's been waiting on pins and needles for this release and to find out it's just a barebones release is disappointing. Regardless, I bought two. One for me and my kids and one for my brother and nieces. I will keep my fingers crossed for a legitimate release with restoration, extras, and the Ray Bradbury commentary I heard tell about. This maybe a cash grab since Ray's death, but it's all we got as of now fans.

    Comments about The Halloween Tree:

    I saw part of this movie at a halloween party a few years ago. I wanted to see the end of it and looked everywhere but couldn't find it on DVD for a good price. Periodically I would search and I finally got it here. Loved Ray Bradbury stories growing up.

          Great to use for education K-5.
          The quality of the DVD is not good (not fuzzy but not HD).

            Comments about The Halloween Tree:

            One of my all time favorite Halloween specials and certainly one of the best in the past twenty years. In the 1980s, many Halloween specials emerged but by the time Halloween Tree premiered, it was largely a fond farewell to Halloween specials going out with a bang. Also, one of the lasting impressions of the special is teaching the history of Halloween and how it's celebrated around the world.

                    This is a very good Halloween movie which we had on VHS many years ago. The story is original and by one of the best SiFi writers of all time. The production is very good, it is a good movie for adults and children alike. We were very glad to locate this movie at last on DVD.
