The spooky month of October is soon approaching, and to celebrate one of the nation’s favorite holidays, Cinelife Entertainment is bringing back the original 1978 Halloween to the silver screen — and it’s fully remastered.

Available at select theaters starting from the end of this month, the Halloween re-release is a digital version that has gone through a freshly remastered restoration by cinematographer Dean Cundey, who was the actual cinematography for the original movie back in the ’70s. The restoration will see new and better lighting and effects in the film, and will pave the way for the upcoming sequels due to release in 2020 and 2021.

Nick Castle, who directed the 2018 remake of Halloween, commented on the remastering: “My question would be there is one scene that [director of photography] Dean [Cundey] had a great idea. Near the end, where Michael Myers is in the shadows, he actually dials up the light very, very slowly so that he starts to appear behind Jamie. It’s right before he tries to either stab her or choke her. And I just wonder if that will be seen too early. That’s, I guess, my one concern.” Despite this, Castle says he’d still very much like to see the original in this new format.

For those looking for Halloween plans this October, you can head over to Cinelife Entertainment’s website to see where and when the remastered Halloween will be showing.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Apple TV+ is launching on November 1 for $4.99 USD per month.
