One of the most exciting genre celebrations in recent years, the Salem Horror Fest kicks off again this October and Daily Dead is thrilled to be a media sponsor of the 10-day event. There are many reasons to attend this year's Salem Horror Fest (including Ryan Turek being the festival's keynote speaker and the festival's impressive lineup of "Earthdoom" screenings), and now Haddonfield fans have a big reason of their own to point their car hoods towards the East Coast this fall, as the Salem Horror Fest has officially announced the new Halloween as its opening night showcase screening—two weeks before the movie's theatrical release! 

The new Halloween will screen at CinemaSalem on Thursday, October 4th and Friday, October 5th, and tickets are up for pre-order now at Salem Horror Fest's official website. Stay tuned to Daily Dead for more updates on the Salem Horror Fest!

From Salem Horror Fest: "Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who 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.

Master of horror John Carpenter executive produces and serves as creative consultant on this film, joining forces with cinema’s current leading producer of horror, Jason Blum (Get Out, Split, The Purge, Paranormal Activity). Inspired by Carpenter’s classic, filmmakers David Gordon Green and Danny McBride crafted a story that carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 film, and Green also directs.
