SYNOPSIS

This fall, Compass International Pictures, Trancas International Films, and Screenvision turn back the clock to October 1978 in the sleepy town of Haddonfield, Illinois for John Carpenter's immortal classic, Halloween. Beginning October 25th, the original genre-defining horror masterpiece graces the big screen once again. This nationwide release is the widest the film has seen since originally shocking audiences in '78, and will be presented in a striking new HD transfer and 5.1 audio. Michael Myers has spent the last 15 years locked away inside a sanitarium under the care of child psychiatrist Dr. Sam Loomis. On October 30, 1978, Myers escapes and makes his way back home to Haddonfield, turning a night of tricks and treats into something much more sinister for three young women. Dr. Loomis is their only hope, but will be find his shadow-dwelling patient in time? Screenvision's presentation of Halloween will include an exclusive documentary short written and directed by Fangoria's Justin Beahm, You Can't Kill The Bogeyman: 35 Years of Halloween, focusing on the undeniable impact the film, and series, has had on culture and the genre. A full list of theaters will be announced soon.
