HALLOWEEN 2018 with BLACK CHRISTMAS and HALLOWEEN 1978
Triple Feature: BLACK CHRISTMAS, 1974, Shout Factory, 98 min. Dir. Bob Clark. Personally requested by David Gordon Green and Danny McBride in reference to its inspiration on HALLOWEEN.The college town of Bedford is receiving an unwelcome guest this Christmas. As the residents of sorority house Pi Kappa Sigma prepare for the festive season, a stranger begins to stalk the house. A series of obscene phone calls start to plague the residents of the sorority and it becomes clear that a psychopath is homing in on the sisters with dubious intentions. And though the police try to trace the calls, they discover that nothing is as it seems during this Black Christmas. Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea, Margot Kidder, Andrea Martin and John Saxon star in this Canadian-produced cult favorite, one of the first slasher films.
HALLOWEEN, 1978, Compass International, 91 min. Dir. John Carpenter. A landmark in modern horror, and one of the most phenomenally successful independent films ever made, John Carpenters HALLOWEEN set the standard for dozens of oversexed-teens-meet-serial killer movies to come, including SCREAM and SCARY MOVIE. Jamie Lee Curtis (in her first major role) stars as the resilient Laurie, aware that evil stalks the shady streets and living rooms of her small town in the form of escaped psychopath Michael Myers. Co-starring Donald Pleasence, P.J. Soles and Nancy Loomis.
HALLOWEEN, 2018, Universal, 109 min. Dir. David Gordon Green. Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago. Master of horror John Carpenter executive produces and serves as creative consultant on this film, joining forces with cinemas current leading producer of horror, Jason Blum (GET OUT, SPLIT, THE PURGE, PARANORMAL ACTIVITY). Inspired by Carpenters classic, filmmakers David Gordon Green and Danny McBride crafted a story that carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 shocker. Introductions by HALLOWEEN producer Malek Akkad.
