Just like the reboot of John Carpenter’s seminal classic currently filming in South Carolina, producers hope to deliver For the Love of the Boogeyman this October, just in time to coincide with Halloween’s 40th Anniversary.

This documentary is by fans and for the fans, chronicling why John Carpenter’s classic has stood the test of time. We’ve already confirmed our first contributor to the project, Cruel Summer Director Phillip Escott, with plenty more familiar faces in the pipeline. We’re aiming to release the documentary around Halloween 2018, and the release of the new sequel produced by John Carpenter and starring original cast members Jamie Lee Curtis and Nick Castle.
We’ll keep our ears to the ground in order to bring you all Halloween-related news as details emerge. Stay tuned!
