­—October 25 and 30: Halloween [R]. Screenvision turns back the clock to October 1978 in the sleepy town of Haddonfield, Illinois for John Carpenter’s immortal classic, Halloween. On October 25, the genre-defining horror masterpiece graces the big screen once again, and Screenvision is offering Halloween in a brand-new transfer presenting the film as it was meant to be seen. Michael Myers has spent the last 15 years locked away inside a sanitarium under the care of child psychiatrist Dr. Sam Loomis. On October 30, 1978, Myers escapes and makes his way back home to the quiet, leaf-strewn streets of Haddonfield, turning a night of tricks and treats into something much more sinister for 3 young women. Dr. Loomis is their only hope, but will he find his shadow-dwelling patient in time? Screenvision’s presentation of Halloween will include an exclusive 10-minute short written and directed by Fangoria’s Justin Beahm, You Can’t Kill The Bogeyman: 35 Years of Halloween, explaining how the classic film helped transform the genre. 10 p.m.
