‘Halloween’, ‘Halloween 4’ And ‘Halloween 5’ Return to Theaters This Fall

Big news today for fans of the Halloween franchise as it was announced that Halloween, Halloween 4 and Halloween 5 will grace theaters and drive-ins worldwide this October made possible through a partnership between CineLife Entertainment, Trancas International Films and Compass International Pictures.

In 1978 John Carpenter introduced audiences to what would become the ultimate horror franchise, Halloween. The film launched the career of then-unknown actress Jamie Lee Curtis as she worked with the incomparable Donald Pleasance. The film also starred Nick Castle, P.J. Soles, Nancy Kyes and Charles Cyphers.  In 2006, Halloween was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”

Released on October 21, 1988, Halloween  4: The Return of Michael Myers picks up ten years after the original and sees Michael Myers awake the night before Halloween and returns to Haddonfield to kill his seven-year-old niece. Directed by Dwight H. Little, the film stars Donald Pleasence, Ellie Cornell, Danielle Harris and George Wilbur.

Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers was released just a year later and follows a similar plot as the Shape stalks his niece. This time the role of Michael is played by the hulking Don Shanks.
