In just eight days, we will be entering October! Horror fans, we have been waiting for this moment all year! October 1st marks the start of more than a few 31 day horror marathons. After all, it is Halloween season! Across the United States some people are starting lists, checking them twice, and making sure there are way more on them that’s naughty rather than nice. For me, one of those days has already been reserved.
It has been announced that the original Halloween will be playing in theaters across the country. The date for my area is October 13th and I could not be more excited! It also means that this monumental film will be getting two days out of me in the month of October, as it is a tradition of mine to watch it Halloween night and follow it up with the second installment.
Partnering with Specticast, the film will be shown in a digitally remastered version at multiple theaters across the entire United States. To find your local listing, click here. This is no doubt that, due to the franchisees’ plan to put out a new film starring the amazing Jamie Lee Curtis, theaters will be packed for the original this October. Regardless of the reason, giant fans of the series who weren’t around when it had made its first run can finally get a chance to see it on the big screen!
As my readers know, Halloween is the movie that got me hooked on the drug I like to call The Horror Genre. Sure, I’ve seen H20 and both remakes in theaters. Be that as it may, having the chance to see the original on the big screen in the company of other major fans of horror is an experience that the horror geek in me cannot turn down. Can you imagine it: Getting to watch Laurie Strode begging for Tommy to hurry his ass up and open the door on a giant screen? How about Laurie reaching for the hangers that seem even further out of reach because the screen is so much bigger?
Are you planning on going to see Halloween in theaters? What is your list of horror movies to watch during the month of October? Do you even make a list or do you go with the flow and just let it happen? Let us know in the comments! Horror season is upon us, my dear readers… we’ve been waiting for this all year!
