This year marks the 40th year since the release of John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN and CineLife Entertainment in association with Compass International Pictures will be celebrating this anniversary by releasing HALLOWEEN to select theatres across the globe.

Event screenings will begin ahead of Universal Pictures’ sequel release of David Gorgan Green’s HOLLOWEEN (2018) furthering the significance of bringing the original classic back to the big screen.

Pannonia Entertainment is proud to announce that it will distribute John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN to theatres in selected territories beginning September 1, 2018. This release features a RESTORED and REMASTERED digital print supervised by cinematographer Dean Cundey.

Available on DCP from September 1st till  December 1st 2018, Pannonia Entertainment distributes this classical movie in Finland, Hungary, Sweden and Norway.

John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN premiered on October 25th, 1978, not in Los Angeles with a big event at Mann’s Chinese Theater – instead it opened in Kansas City. It did quite well there and opened up in Chicago, and then earned showings in New York. From there, it had a platform release across the country, playing in different cities at different times.

Over 35 years later, the movie has made its money back more than 200 times! This earned it the title of the most successful independent horror movie of all time. It’s one of the most successful independent flicks overall, behind Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and The Blair Witch Project.
