Watch The Trailer For The Re-Release Of ‘Halloween’

Michael-Myers-Halloween

We’ve just now landed the official trailer for Screenvision, Compass International Pictures and Trancas International Films’ re-release of John Carpenter’s immortal 1978 classic, Halloween. This nationwide release, beginning October 25th with select showings through October 31st, will be the widest distribution the film has seen since originally shocking audiences in 1978. This cinema scare classic will be presented in a striking, new HD transfer and 5.1 audio. While we’ve been e-mailed with unconfirmed reports that the UK release will be shown on Blu-ray, a Screenvision representative is checking to confim the film’s new HDCAM projection as I write this article. A Twitter follower tells me it will be a satellite-broadcast digital version like Fathom Events (something I will never return to). I guess you’d be going will the sole intent to experience it with a group of horror fans in theaters?

Screenvision’s presentation of Halloween will also include an exclusive documentary short entitled “You Can’t Kill The Bogeyman: 35 Years of Halloween.” The documentary focuses on the undeniable impact the film, and series, has had on culture and the genre. A full list of exhibiting theaters will be announced soon.

In the film, the villain, Michael Myers, has spent the last 15 years locked away inside a sanitarium under the care of child psychiatrist Dr. Sam Loomis. On October 30, 1978, Myers escapes and makes his way back home to Haddonfield, turning a night of tricks and treats into something much more sinister for three young women, including Laurie Strode, the star-making role for Jamie Lee Curtis. Dr. Loomis is their only hope, but will he find his shadow-dwelling patient in time?

We are thrilled to bring John Carpenter’s original Halloween back to the screen after almost 35 years,” says series producer Malek Akkad. “We are excited for fans from coast to coast to finally get the ultimate theatrical experience.

Darryl Schaffer, EVP of Exhibitor Relations, Screenvision said: “We’re excited to bring the movie that helped define the horror genre back to the big screen for this timely exhibition.

Look for showtimes and locations to be added here soon, and as always keep an eye on HalloweenMovies.com for more information.

  • xxxwolf666

    I saw it in the theater when I was 7 or 8. Guess I just dated myself.

  • TrackRecord162

    Michael Myers should come after whoever did the voiceover and trailer for this re-release.

    • djblack1313

      TrackRecord, yeah, i agree. the voice over is very lame/bad. lol. it would have been nice if they at least found a more ominous or deep sounding voice. lol.

      • MakeThisAMovies

        Exactly what I was thinking. That voice over was terrible. I’m excited that it is playing in my area but I’m crazy bummed it’s not going to be a film print. @MrDisgusting what is so terrible about satellite projection? Digital is digital….or is it that bad?

        It sounds like some bad YouTube fan-made trailer.

  • ThunderDragoon

    Still can’t believe it’s playing in my town. So damn happy!

  • m-m-m-MONSTER_KILL

    Wow…so it’s playing in 7 theaters here in Colorado, 2 of them are in Colorado Springs, one is in fucking Carbondale (I’ve lived here since 1998 and I don’t even know where the hell that is), but none in or even CLOSE to Boulder?! Ri-goddamn-diculous. Especially since the loval Century usually gets the limited release movies, we were one of the first to get the first Paranormal Activity and we even had a special screening for the live-action Death Note movie, but no Halloween? Well, guess I’m headed to Denver on the 25th…
