2018 marks the 40th anniversary of the release of John Carpenter’s “Halloween,” and Halloween Daily News reports there will be a 40th Anniversary Event, and it will be in Pasadena around—you guessed it— Halloween.
Sean Clark, a horror circuit producer and talent agent who organized previous Halloween celebrations in Pasadena, has announced the 40th anniversary party will be scheduled near the release of the next “Halloween” movie.
The event is said to be planned for Pasadena, where the film was shot.
The new “Halloween” movie is expected to be in theaters on Oct.19. Executive produced by John Carpenter and starring Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, the film is written by David Gordon Green and Danny McBride, and directed by David Gordon Green, with Malek Akkad producing for Trancas International and Jason Blum producing for Blumhouse Productions.
In a social media post, Curtis had called the new film “terrifying.”
Both the 30th and 35th anniversary celebrations were held at the Pasadena Convention Center.
