HALLOWEEN KILLS 'Return to Haddonfield' Featurette: "In 2018, David Gordon Green’s Halloween, starring icon Jamie Lee Curtis, killed at the box office, earning more than $250 million worldwide, becoming the highest-grossing chapter in the four-decade franchise and setting a new record for the biggest opening weekend in history for a horror film starring a woman.
And the Halloween night when Michael Myers returned isn’t over yet.
Minutes after Laurie Strode (Curtis), her daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) left masked monster Michael Myers caged and burning in Laurie’s basement, Laurie is rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, believing she finally killed her lifelong tormentor.
But when Michael manages to free himself from Laurie’s trap, his ritual bloodbath resumes. As Laurie fights her pain and prepares to defend herself against him, she inspires all of Haddonfield to rise up against their unstoppable monster.
The Strode women join a group of other survivors of Michael’s first rampage who decide to take matters into their own hands, forming a vigilante mob that sets out to hunt Michael down, once and for all.
Evil dies tonight.
Universal Pictures, Miramax, Blumhouse Productions and Trancas International Films present Halloween Kills, co-starring Will Patton as Officer Frank Hawkins, Thomas Mann (Kong: Skull Island) and Anthony Michael Hall (The Dark Knight).
From the returning filmmaking team responsible for the 2018 global phenomenon, Halloween Kills is written by Scott Teems (SundanceTV’s Rectify) and Danny McBride and David Gordon Green based on characters created by John Carpenter and Debra Hill. The film is directed by David Gordon Green and produced by Malek Akkad, Jason Blum and Bill Block. The executive producers are John Carpenter, Jamie Lee Curtis, Danny McBride, David Gordon Green and Ryan Freimann."
REBIRTH: "Concept Media (Don’t F in the Woods series, Failing Grace, Trespassing) is proud to announce that they will be exclusively distributing the physical release of the Night of the Living Dead tribute, Rebirth. Written and directed by Roger Conners.
Synopsis: What begins as an annual visit to their family gravesite quickly becomes a night of sheer terror as two brothers are unexpectedly forced to fight back against a sudden onslaught of violent assailants. Soon, eight strangers find themselves barricaded inside a rural farmhouse in an attempt to survive against the ever-growing army of murderous creatures outside. But they soon realize the real threat is not what’s trying to get inside… it’s each other.
“It’s not so much a remake as it is a modern-day retelling of the ground-breaking masterpiece. It will readdress the original topics such as racial prejudice and government control but also interject ideas of homophobia and religious influence on modern society.” –Writer/director Roger Conners.
“I am so proud of my colleague & friend; his work here is incredible! We have talked for weeks about getting his film out under the Concept Media banner! This pairing of Ohio talents isn’t something often seen in the indie film community. It is quite an honor that he & his wonderful team chose us to team up with!” Ryan Stacy, Concept Media
Preorder will begin October 3 on the Concept Media website. DVDs are $12 and Blu Rays are $20.
