Get ready for the ultimate scare! The restored and remastered digital print of the 1978 cult classic ‘Halloween’ is returning to theaters! The film, from mastermind John Carpenter, is getting a theatrical re-release in honor of its 40th anniversary. ‘Halloween’ will screen in select theaters worldwide beginning September 27.
The re-release is the brainchild of CineLife Entertainment, partnered with Compass International Pictures and Trancas International Films. Theaters in the U.S., the U.K., France, Canada and Australia, and more will show the film. Original ‘Halloween’ cinematographer Dean Cundey oversaw the remastering of the classic.
This event comes just before fans get to see Laurie Strode square off against Michael Myers in David Gordon Green’s ‘Halloween’ sequel, allowing certain moviegoers the chance to go back to where it all began! Carpenter recently spoke about the event, saying:
“I’m thrilled to have the original make its way back into theaters as we prepare for the release of the sequel. Having both back in theaters this fall is remarkable.”
Jamie Lee Curtis will reprise her role as Strode in the ‘Halloween’ sequel, which will open in theaters on October 19. The official synopsis for the film reads:
Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
