Wednesday, September 22, 2021 | News

CineLife Entertainment, a division of Spotlight Cinema Networks, will re-release John Carpenter’s 1978 classic Halloween and its sequels, Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (1988) and Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers (1989), back to theaters beginning October 2021.

“We are thrilled to return the legendary Halloween franchise to theaters and continue our partnership with Trancas International Films and Compass International Pictures,” says Bernadette McCabe, CineLife Entertainment’s Executive Vice President. “Despite the pandemic, last year we saw a strong presence from Halloween fans across drive-in theaters, which illustrates that for horror film fans, Halloween has become a thrilling tradition on a global scale — one that we hope to carry forward for years to come.”

The showings are being booked worldwide, through a partnership between CineLife Entertainment, Compass International Pictures and Trancas International Films.

“With this year marking the 43rd year of the original Halloween, along with the upcoming release of director David Gordon Green’s new film Halloween Kills, we’re excited for this iconic franchise to represent a symbol of the holiday itself,” says Ryan Freimann, SVP of Trancas and Compass. “Our goal is to bring classic films to fans across the country, especially during these uncertain times, which is why we are catering to fans with showings of the most beloved Halloween films, continuing the incredible momentum we have seen over the past few years.”
