Halloween Re-Release

The terrifying classic returns to theaters! Michael Myers is back and ready to kill, again. 35 years after the original release of the film, John Carpenter's horror classic Halloween is back, hitting theaters the same opening weekend this year. The news was announced a couple of weeks ago with a new teaser poster, but an official teaser trailer has just debuted, and can be seen below. Jamie Lee Curtis stars in this, along with Donald Pleasence as Dr. Loomis, P. J. Soles, Nancy Loomis, and Tony Moran (plus Nick Castle) as Myers. We know what to expect with this, and it's only a short tease, but still a fun classic re-release. Enjoy!

Teaser trailer for the re-release of John Carpenter's Halloween, from YouTube (via Bloody-Disgusting):

John Carpenter's Halloween was originally released on October 25th, 1978, earning an impressive $47 million at the box office. The film is being re-released this Halloween, starting from October 25th to the 31st, with select screenings. John Carpenter's original horror classic will also be screening with special mini-documentary You Can't Kill The Boogeyman: 35 Years of Halloween. On Halloween 1963, six year old Michael Myers murders his older sister by stabbing her with a kitchen knife. Fifteen years later, he escapes from a psychiatric hospital, returns home, and stalks teenager Laurie Strode and her friends. A listing of theaters showing the Halloween re-release can be found on Anyone going to attend?

    I own this fantastic horror film on dvd and blu-ray, and I would still go see it if it came to my theater. Will I attend? Hell yes!
  • dale
    Great teaser,too! Maybe by coming back to some theaters it can be introduced to a lot of the younger generation who have yet to see it as well.

    God I love this film! God I love John Carpenter! God I'm pissed this isn't coming near me!

      agree on carpenter - his "halloween" and "the fog" are must watches for us during halloween season!
      • grimjob
        Absolutely. Classics!
      Carpenter at his best was untouchable.
      • grimjob
        Between Beevis' mentions and Big Trouble, They Live, and Escape, untouchable is an accurate description. Stay away from The Ward if you haven't seen it already. Everyone is allowed a misstep or two from time to time.
    True Horror Cinema. Get some.

    First of all , in Halloween Picture I Enjoy every Silent Scene as much as the Scenes when Curtis cry. I think cause of successness of Halloween was : Solid Script , Unforgettable Villain , Tough Performance , Excellent Directing , Unique Score What is this meaning? This means if someone work on a horror project with his Openinig Eyes & PASSION , that horror become " HALLOWEEN " And if not we saw : Descent 2 , Hills Have Eyes 2 , Quarantine 2 , 30 Days of Night 2 , Piranha 3DD and of course Silent Hill 2 Im Looking After Next Carpenter Guy

    I caught it the last time it was re-released, I think for a night. It's good that they're hitting so many places.
  • TheMagicPumpkin
    Will they be playing the actual film or a digital projection? I so want to see an actual film projection for that older feel.
