John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN Returning to the Big Screen

While David Gordon Green and Danny McBride are currently working away on their new Halloween movie, John Carpenter’s original 1978 classic is heading back to select cinemas this Halloween.

This October, the restored and remastered release of this iconic horror effort will be heading to the big screen alongside an exclusive interview and retrospective from the legendary Carpenter himself. For those well versed in Haddonfield and ‘the night that he came home’, this restored and remastered effort is indeed the same as-crisp-as-an-Autumnal-leaf restoration that was overseen by original cinematographer Dead Cundey and featured on the 35th anniversary edition release of the film back in 2013.

On this special return for the Shape and his original cinematic outing, the official word reads: 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.

At present, showings of Halloween are set to take place in the US, UK, Ireland, Canada, Australia and Germany throughout October and even in to November. For a full listing of just which cinemas are screening this all-time classic, visit Specticast – and the good news is that if there’s not a showing in your area, you can request one and Specticast will get in touch with your local cinema.
