Posted September 19, 2012 by Rick in Movie News

The autumn leaves are falling once again as the Halloween season approaches. It has been nearly 35 years, but finally HE will come home once again…to the silver screen that is. Michael Myers and the original Halloween will return to the movie theaters for a special run beginning on October 25th. This will allow a whole new generation of viewers to get to experience this horror classic on the big screen. Excitingly, this horror classic will be released in vivid new HD transfer and 5.1 audio to take full advantage of that awesome soundtrack.

Screenvision, a cinema advertising and content distribution company, is working with Compass International Pictures and Trancas International Films to make this happen. The John Carpenter classic from 1978 will be released nationwide with select showings through the end of the month. It will also include a great documentary short called You Can’t Kill the Boogeyman: 35 Years of Halloween by Justin Beahm. This is all about how Halloween took over the horror movie industry and pop culture.

Halloween tells the story of Michael Myers, a serial killer that returns after killing his sister as a child on Halloween night. He escapes the mental hospital and returns to Haddonfield on Halloween night 15 years later to chase down his other sister and various other teens that are close to her. Jamie Lee Curtis plays that sister in a career making role for the scream queen and actress supreme. The movie will leave you breathless and spooked like no other and is the perfect movie experience for Halloween night.
