Are you sitting down? You better be, because I have news that may just knock you off your feet. This October, John Carpenterâ€™s Halloween, featuring the original mask that spawned so many other Michael Myers masks, is getting a nationwide theatrical re-release. Thatâ€™s right – evil comes home, again.
â€œThis will be the biggest run the film has had since shocking audiences in 1978, and makes for the perfect early kick off to next yearâ€™s 35th Anniversary celebration [of the film],â€ states ShockTilYouDrop.com.
In addition, Compass International Pictures, Trancas International Films, Screenvision, and HalloweenMovies.com collaborated to create a â€œone sheet for this Octoberâ€™s U.S. theatrical re-release of John Carpenterâ€™s 1978 masterpiece, Halloween,â€ states HalloweenMovies.com. The poster, designed by artist Austin Hinderliter, presents â€œthe ultimate evil in shadow and autumnal oranges,â€ perfect for the October season.
Starting today, a list of participating theaters can be found at HalloweenOnScreen. At the time of writing, no theaters are listed on the website, though one can expect theaters to be added throughout the day. Hereâ€™s to hoping one of those theaters is located near me.
With this kind of news, itâ€™s definitely starting to feel like Halloween.
