The Shape will once again be stalking theaters this October!


It may not be "new" news, but now that the Halloween Season is in full swing, it certainly bears repeating: John Carpenter's Halloween is returning to Theaters this October, and in 15 different countries around the world!

From the Press Release
"SpectiCast, one of the fastest growing event cinema marketing and distribution companies in the world, has partnered with Compass International Pictures and Trancas International Films to bring John Carpenter’s immortal 1978 classic Halloween back to theaters worldwide beginning October 1, 2014, with select screenings available through October 31st.

For the first time ever, the digitally restored and re-mastered print, created under the supervision of world renowned cinematographer Dean Cundey, will be seen on big screens around the world.  In the film villain 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, including Laurie Strode, the breakout role for Jamie Lee Curtis.  Dr. Loomis is their only hope, but will he find his shadow-dwelling patient in time?

“We are delighted to work with SpectiCast to bring this restored and re-mastered version of Halloween to movie screens,” says producer Malek Akkad. “We are excited for fans across the globe to experience this film like never before.”

SpectiCast Co-founder and President Mark Rupp stated, “As we continue to cultivate unique programming, our goal is to bring quality films and events to theaters around the world for audiences to enjoy.  Halloween’s encore to movie screens in this never-before-seen restored and re-mastered form carries on our tradition of excellence.”

Halloween 1978 will be appearing on more than 500 screens at select theaters in over twelve countries around the world."

It's great that a new generation of Horror Fans all over the world will be getting the chance to see this classic on the big screen, in the following countries; Australia, Austria, Canada, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, The UK, and of course, The U.S.
