Original ‘Halloween’ Returning to Theaters This October

Before Jamie Lee Curtis returns in next year’s Halloween, why not revisit the original classic that forever changed the landscape of the horror genre?

As it usually does, we’re happy to report today that John Carpenter’s Halloween will be returning to theaters across the world this coming October, digitally restored and remastered by the original cinematographer. Plus, catch an exclusive interview and retrospective with the legendary master of horror, John Carpenter.

“Introducing the film, this special bonus explores the history of the film and the indelible influence Halloween has had on not only the horror genre, but the entire film industry. Carpenter explains why the film is meant for the big screen, the influences that inspire his filmmaking and how Halloween became the highest grossing independent film of all time.”

Screenings will be taking place in the US, UK, Canada, Australia, Germany and Ireland throughout October, and you can find listings through Specticast.

    Last week a cinema in my city showed a bunch of horror classics for free, it was pretty awesome. People had the chance to watch Dracula, Bram Stroker’s Dracula, Frankenstein, The Bride of Frankenstein, The Shining, Rosemary’s Baby, A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream in a movie theater. It was an experience I’ll never forget. Too bad they didn’t show movie like Halloween and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, that would have made it perfect.
