The people who attended the gala premiere of John Carpenter’s 1978 indie, Halloween, probably had no idea they were witnessing the birth of a new genre mainstay, the slasher film, or a even a new series of films. After all, the film had been made in around 20 days, for then-paltry sum of $300,000, and debuted, not in Hollywood, but Kansas City. Since then, this film has spawned a legion of sequels and a ton of imitators. But viewing it now, it still seems fresh and it’s still scary.

We are pleased to present this digitally restored and re-mastered print, painstakingly created frame-by-frame under the supervision of Halloween‘s world renowned cinematographer, Dean Cundey. 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 (Donald Pleasance). 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, played by Jamie Lee Curtis in her breakout role. Dr. Loomis is their only hope, but will he find his shadow-dwelling patient in time?
