CineLife Entertainment, the event cinema division of Spotlight Cinema Networks, has teamed up with Compass International Pictures and Trancas International Films to bring John Carpenter’s 1978 classic Halloween back to select theatres worldwide beginning Sept. 27.

The original Halloween will be released on over 1,000 screens in more than 20 countries across the globe. “I’m thrilled to have the original make its way back into theatres, as we prepare for the release of the sequel. Having both back in theatres this fall is remarkable,” says director John Carpenter. The digital prints have been remastered under the supervision of renowned cinematographer Dean Cundey. 

"We are thrilled to be a part of the 40th-anniversary celebration, working with Compass International Pictures and Trancas International Films, to bring the most fear-provoking and enduring horror movie of all time to cinema screens around the globe," said Mark Rupp, managing director of CineLife Entertainment

The release of Carpenter’s original Halloween comes just ahead of the release of Halloween (2018) – the direct sequel to Carpenter’s classic. Jamie Lee Curtis and Nick Castle reprise their roles as Laurie Strode and her stalker Michael Myers, respectively. It is set for release on Oct. 19, a week before the 40th anniversary of the original Halloween release date.
