John Carpenter’s Halloween Is Coming Back To Theaters For One Night
The godfather of all slasher movies is coming back to the big screen this October for one night just in time to kick of the holiday season right. Halloween originally debuted Oct. 25, 1978 in Kansas City and over time earned $47 million on a budget of just $325,000. It spawned 8 squeals, 2 remakes and arguably an entire sub-genre of horror movies that would dominate the scene from that point on.
Plot Synopsis: On Halloween night in 1963, six year old Michael Myers brutally murdered his 17 year-old sister. He was sentenced and locked away for 15 years. But on October 30, 1978, a 21-year-old Michael Myers steals a car and escapes Smith’s Grove. He returns to his quiet hometown of Haddonfield, Illinois, where he looks for his next victims.
These screenings hosted by Fathom Events will take place at more than 220 movie theaters across America on October 29th.
“This movie is well deserving of another play on the big screen,” said Fathom Events CEO John Rubey. “We cannot wait for audiences to experience this twisted tale in theaters for Halloween.”
Tickets are available now at participating theaters and on FathomEvents web site.
