Halloween Double Feature

Sun, Oct 27th, 2019

***One Night Only | Presented by Creepy Co.***

Can you imagine a more perfect sounding bell for the climax of the Halloween season? The film that started it all over forty years ago paired with its newly christened alternate sequel. John Carpenter's return to the franchise after more than 35 years produced the most successful theatrical release of all Halloween films, as well as the second highest critically rated entry (only behind the original of course). The Shape comes stalking again with all the trademarks of the first film - emotionless brute force, inhuman resilience, and of course that instantly unsettling film score. 

Presented by Chicago’s own horror professionals, Creepy Co., this event will include a pop-up shop with event-exclusive items (amongst many others) and a pre-screening reception with special drinks, DJs, and giveaways that will have you swelling with Haddonfield pride.

The Film that Redefined Movie Terror Forever

On a cold Halloween night in 1963, six-year-old Michael Myers brutally murdered his 17-year-old sister, Judith. He was sentenced and 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 star-making role for Jamie Lee Curtis.

John Carpenter’s seminal 1978 classic HALLOWEEN premiered in cinemas and on drive-in screens over four decades ago, changing the landscape of horror cinema. It stunned audiences worldwide and has since inspired countless films in this genre.

Since its debut on movie screens forty-one years ago, HALLOWEEN still holds its place as a horror masterpiece. In 2006, it was selected by the Library of Congress to be preserved in the U.S. National Film Registry for its cultural significance.

This year’s release is a restored and remastered digital print, created under the supervision of the world-renowned cinematographer, Dean Cundey.

This premiere is presented by CineLife Entertainment, Trancas International Films & Compass International Pictures.
