FINAL GIRL explores the slasher flicks of the '70s and '80s...and all the other horror movies I feel like talking about, too. This is life on the EDGE, so beware yon spoilers!

Oct 21, 2006

We interrupt this program...

...to bring you a most bitchin' news bulletin. Remember I was all excited to catch A Nightmare on Elm Street on the big screen and I don't even count NoES among my favorite horror flicks? Huh? Do ya...punk? Well then, imagine my excitement upon finding out that Halloween will be returning to the big screen for a special two-night engagement. Yes, keep imagining...you need to add some metaphorical happy dancing to that image.

Yes it's true...at select theatres around the country, Halloween (with some bonus interviews and whatnot, too!)will return to the theatre for two showings- October 30 and October 31 at 8pm. Check right here at this very link to find out if it's playing near you...I sure hope it is. We should all go on a field trip. I got my tickets- Halloween night, me and Michael Myers in a movie theatre. Now that's a three-way! A three-way of awesome.

If you'll excuse me, I need to go change my pants.

The bonus interviews will apparently end with a promise from Rob Zombie that his remake/reimagining/relaunch won't be as awful as the last few Halloween sequels.

Enjoy the showing. It'd be really cool to see Halloween with an audience.

I am so glad Minneapolis (well, Brooklyn Center) is one of the cities showing this. I have never seen Halloween on the big screen. That's a shame to say about my favorite horror movie, but now I can remedy that. I am so stoked. (SikeChick squeeeeeals like a wee schoolgirl.)

Anyone know if they're actually showing film prints, or if they're just doing a video projection like they did with Nightmare on Elm Street? That was pretty disappointing, and left me wishing I'd just saved the money for the DVD.

Have you seen the preview for horrorfest. 8 movies we are not suppose to see....Blah, Blah, Blah. They are going to be 8 movies shown for one weekend only in November. It looks like it could be a dream come true. Now I know you don't go to the theatre a lot but you may just want to make an exception for this. You find out more at horrorfestonline.com.

I'll be attending Horrorfest, but the Halloween screening is not close enough to warrant the lengthy drive on a school night.

Parenthood, argh!

I'll be posting about Horrorfest next month; I've no idea if it's coming near me, but I sure hope it is.

I agree, star, the quality of Nightmare was pretty low. Hopefully this'll be better. I can't wait!

Halloween won't be showing in the tiny remote berg known as Dallas for some reason. :(
