I've seen a lot of horror movies, and I mean a lot. Most of them weren't so great -- it was the 80's, so the slasher flick reigned supreme -- but the movie that really scared the bejesus out of me was Halloween. Released in 1978, John Carpenter continued the tradition of the "scream queen" with Jamie Lee Curtis and created (for better or for worse) an enduring horror franchise. To me, Michael Myers was absolutely terrifying -- forget Jason and Freddy, my money has always been on Michael.

The original Halloween has been digitally re-mastered and will be showing at selected theaters for two nights only (October 30-31). A 20-minute extra feature will also be shown, including interviews with cast and crew right after the screening. Now, the cynical side of me says that this is just a cheap cash grab to squeeze out some publicity for the upcoming Halloween 9 (2007), to be directed by Rob Zombie. The other side of me gets the 'willies' just thinking about that theme song. What classic horror movie would you like to get the chance to see again on the big screen?
