The horror documentary that's ‘made for fans, by the fans’; “For the Love of the Boogeyman: 40 Years of Halloween” has set a release date for October 2018, around the same release of the 2018 reboot of Halloween, which is currently being filmed in South Carolina after a delayed start for January.
Bloody Flicks makes their debut release with the documentary “chronicling why John Carpenter’s classic has stood the test of time. Bringing together some of the brightest voices from independent horror we will explore what makes the film so special. From the music, the mask to Michael Myers, everyone has their own take on Halloween, and why it is the blueprint for slasher horror and in our humble opinion, has never been better.”
The U.K. studio plans to coincide their release with the release of the Halloween 2018 remake, scheduled for October 19th, directed by David Gordon Green and produced by Carpenter himself. The movie is set to bring back Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, the iconic hero of the first movie, as well as Nick Castle reprising his role as The Shape. They will be joined by Judy Greer, who is in talks to play Strode’s daughter, Karen, as well as Andi Matichak playing the role of Greer’s daughter and Curtis’ granddaughter, Allyson Strode. The film also features actor Danny McBride as the films co writer alongside director David Gordon Green.
In Halloween, “Laurie Strode comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.”
With these releases and more, horror fans should find themselves having a "killer" Halloween season.
