‘Halloween’ as Well as ‘Halloween 4’ and ‘Halloween 5’ Are All Headed Back to Theaters This Month!


As has become fairly customary, John Carpenter’s beloved slasher, Halloween will once more return to the big screen in 2016.

Having caught this one in theaters for the very first time last year, I can tell you that there’s no better setting to watch Halloween than in a cramped theater full of like-minded admirers. It’s a very special experience, and it’s amazing to see crowds still jump during certain scenes.

But this year Specticast will actually be going above and beyond the call of duty.

In addition to Halloween, both Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers and Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers will also be hitting theaters.

I’d say it’s a stellar time to be a Halloween fan, even if the fourth or fifth installment don’t rank as personal favorites, they’re pretty cool to see on the big screen (these I actually caught upon arrival).

In case you need it, we’ll give you a rundown of each film:

Halloween: The year is 1963, the night: Halloween. Police are called to 43 Lampkin Ln. only to discover that 15 year old Judith Myers has been stabbed to death, by her 6 year-old brother, Michael. After being institutionalized for 15 years, Myers breaks out on the night before Halloween. No one knows, nor wants to find out, what will happen on October 31st 1978 besides Myers’ psychiatrist, Dr. Loomis. He knows Michael is coming back to Haddonfield, but by the time the town realizes it, it’ll be too late for many people.

Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers: It’s October 30, 1988 and Michael Myers has been in a coma since his pursuit of Laurie Strode, 10 years ago, was finally stopped (events of H1 and H2). However when he is transfered from Richmond Mental Institute to Smith’s Grove he awakes when he hears that he has a niece in Haddonfield and after killing the transfer crew he escapes. In Haddonfield, the niece, Jamie, has been adopted by the Carruthers family but keeps having nightmares about Michael (but she doesn’t know who he is). On Halloween night, Jamie goes out trick and treating, little knowing that her murdering Uncle is following her and her step-sister Rachel. Rushing to her aid is Dr. Loomis and with the help of Sheriff Meeker starts to search the town for Michael and to find Jamie to protect her. But can anything stop Michael this time?

Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers: It’s one year later after the events of Halloween 4. Michael survives the shootings and on October 31st he returns with a vengeance. Lurking and stalking, Jamie, Rachel, and Rachel’s friends, Michael forms a plan to lure Jamie out of the children’s hospital where events lead up to the confrontation at the Myers house. Halloween 5 is a dark, thrill ride that will scare the heck out of you!
