“It’s the movie’s simplicity that makes it effective.”
It’s been 40 years since John Carpenter changed the game with Halloween, a low-budget slasher film that’s credited for kick-starting the sub-genre that dominated the horror scene throughout the ’80s. This year, David Gordon Green’s new sequel to Carpenter’s original classic will arrive in theaters, just in time for the 40th anniversary.
Additionally, as we recently reported, Bloody Flicks’ fan doc For the Love of the Boogeyman: 40 Years of Halloween is also set to arrive this coming October.
“This documentary is by fans and for the fans, chronicling why John Carpenter’s classic has stood the test of time.”
Check out the first-look teaser below.
“Bringing together some of the brightest voices from independent horror we will explore what makes the film so special. From the music, the mask to Michael Myers, everyone has their own take on Halloween, and why it is the blueprint for slasher horror and in our humble opinion, has never been bettered.”
