Watch Trailer

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.

This cinema classic, digitally restored and remastered by the original cinematographer, features an exclusive extended interview and retrospective with filmmaker John Carpenter. The exclusive explores the history of the film, the legendary director behind it and the influence Halloween has had on not only the horror genre, but also the entire film industry. Carpenter explains why the film is meant for the big screen, the influences that inspire his filmmaking and how Halloween became the highest grossing independent film of all time.
