Horror Classic 'Halloween' Heading Back to Theaters This October

September 14, 2012


Raiders of the Lost Ark just extended a one week run in IMAX theaters, and AMC Theatres are still having a marathon of all the Indiana Jones adventures tomorrow, and even more classic movies are headed back to the big screen this fall. Just in time for the spooky holiday, John Carpenter's original 1978 horror film Halloween is coming back for a limited theatrical run starting October 25th. Strangely enough, I've seen the sequel Halloween II in theaters at the New Beverly in Los Angeles, but I've yet to see the original on the big screen, so this sounds like a great Halloween plan for cinephiles like myself and horror fans alike, right?

Here's the poster for the re-release of John Carpenter's Halloween from Halloween Movies:

The news comes from Halloween Movies (or rather their Facebook page, via Dread Central), complete with the above poster that says the film will return to theaters starting on Thursday, October 25th, likely giving it at least a one week run leading up to Halloween the next week. No theater listing is available yet, but Screen Vision is apparently the place to keep an eye on for theater listings. We'll do our best to update this post when the theaters are revealed now through September 28th. Seeing Jamie Lee Curtis and The Shape who came to be known as Michael Myers back in theaters should be the best Halloween treat this year. Cool?

    Any word on if it's digital projection or film? Thanks
    Hopefully this will show "the kids" what a true horror movie is supposed to be.

    I hate Rob Zombie for remaking this... He should not Direct/write movies I dont care about his music career but he ruined a classic... If this comes out anywhere near me, I'm dragging my friends to see it
