Just last week is was revealed that John Carpenter’s 1978 classic Halloween would be returning to a theater near you this October.
The official Facebook for the film stated: “This will be the biggest run the film has had since shocking audiences in 1978.” We’re not sure how big this means it will actually be, but hopefully it’s wide enough for you to go check out (wherever you are). Screening before the film will be Justin Beahm’s new mini-doc You Can’t Kill The Boogeyman: 35 Years Of Halloween.
According to Boxofficemojo, the original slasher has grossed $47 million here in the States. Honestly, I can see a wide re-release generating serious income, and taking the top spot at the weekend box office.
