John Carpenter’s classic horror film from 1978 Halloween, as well as the fourth and fifth sequels in the iconic series, will be re-released in theaters later this month for the second year in a row.
CineLife Entertainment, Compass International Pictures, and Trancas International Films are teaming up to re-release Halloween, 1988’s Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, and 1989’s Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers. More than 670 screenings are scheduled in approximately 417 theaters.
Halloween premiered in theaters and drive-ins across the country on October 25, 1978. The plot revolves around Michael Myers, the infamous villain who transforms a night of Halloween tricks and treats for three young women, including Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis’ breakthrough role).
With the success of 2018’s Halloween — in which Curtis reprised the role — followed by Halloween Kills and, this year, Halloween Ends, there has been renewed interest in the franchise.
