‘Halloween’ Goes Digital in December
This is Halloween, this is halloween
“Halloween” is stalking its way onto Digital HD and the digital movie app Movies Anywhere on December 28th, the horror-thriller will then release on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand on January 15th. The story picks up four decades after Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis, Halloween Franchise, “Scream Queens”) narrowly escaped Michael Myers’ brutal killing spree. As you can imagine, the killer is back and things are not going well for Strode. The new digital release will help you add a little Halloween into your upcoming holiday mix, a good way to get through all of the upcoming winter nights.
The new installment was a hit in theaters, bringing in over $76M over the film’s opening weekend. “Halloween” then went on to make over $158M domestically and over $250M worldwide.
John Carpenter worked with director David Gordon Green (Joe, Pineapple Express) and producers Jason Blum (Blumhouse), Malek Akkad (Trancas International Films) and Bill Block (Miramax) to create the follow-up to Carpenter’s 1978 classic horror film. “Halloween” also stars Judy Greer (Ant-Man and The Wasp, Jurassic World), Andi Matichak (“Underground”), Will Patton (Armageddon, The Punisher), and Virginia Gardner (Project Almanac, “Runaways”).
Forty years after the events of 1978’s Halloween, Laurie Strode (Curtis) now lives in a heavily guarded home on the edge of Haddonfield, where she’s spent decades preparing for Michael’s potential return. After being locked up in an institution, Myers manages to escape when a bus transfer goes terribly wrong, leading to chaos in the same town he preyed on decades earlier. Laurie now faces a terrifying showdown when the deranged killer returns for her and her family – but this time, she’s ready for him.
