If there’s one movie I’ve heard people talking about all summer, that isn’t The Simpsons, it’s Halloween. Why is there so much buzz, is it because people just like scary movies? Well yes, that and this is a Rob Zombie production based on John Carpenter‘s screenplay.
After being committed for 17 years, Michael Myers, now a grown man and still very dangerous, is mistakenly released from the mental institution (where he was committed as a 10 year old) and he immediately returns to Haddonfield, where he wants to find his baby sister, Laurie. Anyone who crosses his path is in mortal danger.[IMDB]
As with the premiere of Rush Hour 3, I have been invited to attend the midnight screening of Halloween at the Rio on Broadway. In the same fashion as the Rush Hour escapade, we’re going to make it a girls night. Of course I’m going to bring the same two girls as last time because I’ve heard them chat and gush about Rob Zombie flicks often – even when we were waiting outside the Rio last month.
The Rio is premiering Halloween tonight, then it will be showing daily at 7:00pm and 9:30pm throughout the next week. I’ll report back after the screening so I can probably share how freaked out I am, whether it be from the movie or the cab ride back downtown.
The Rio is located at 1660 E Broadway. Movie tickets at $8 for first-run shows and $5 on Tuesdays.
