John Carpenter’s ‘Halloween’ Hits Theaters Again This October

According to Digital Spy, October 25th will be the night he came home…again. John Carpenter‘s Halloween is the next classic to get the re-release treatment. The immortal horror flick will see big screens along with Justin Beahm‘s short documentary You Can’t Kill the Boogeyman: 35 Years of Halloween.
