Original ‘Halloween’ Plus ‘Halloween 4’ and ‘Halloween 5’ Returning to the Drive-In Through Halloween

We had told you a couple months back that Trancas International Films and Compass International Pictures have joined forces with CineLife Entertainment to “bring Halloween to audiences safely during this time of pandemic,” with the original classic plus the fourth and fifth films being offered up to drive-in locations through the Halloween season.

Today the official announcement has been made that Halloween, Halloween 4 & Halloween 5 are indeed coming back to theatres and drive-ins worldwide through October 31!

John Carpenter’s seminal classic Halloween premiered in cinemas and on drive-in screens on October 25, 1978, changing the landscape of horror cinema. The original film follows iconic villain Michael Myers, who turns a night of Halloween tricks and treats into something much more sinister for three young women, including Laurie Strode, the breakthrough role for Jamie Lee Curtis. 

The version of Halloween coming to drive-in theaters this fall is a restored and remastered digital print, created under the supervision of the world-renowned cinematographer, Dean Cundey. 

In 1988, Producer Moustapha Akkad breathed new life into the franchise with Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers (which is often ranked as one of the top films in the series), followed by 1989’s Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers, both of which feature fan-favorite, Danielle Harris.

“We are proud to partner with Trancas International Films and Compass International Pictures to bring this fan-favorite horror film to theaters worldwide. For generations of horror film fans who weren’t able to experience the original classic franchise in theaters, and even for those who remember when the films first premiered, we hope to capture the same thrilling and hair-raising atmosphere for all viewers to enjoy this quintessential Halloween experience,” says Bernadette McCabe, CineLife Entertainment’s Executive Vice President. 

“We are so excited to be bringing these films back, especially to drive-ins across the country where this iconic franchise launched. Now, with the fall season growing closer, the drive-in format is helping keep both Halloween spirit and the cinema experience alive in these unprecedented times,” says Ryan Freimann, SVP of Trancas and Compass.
