“Halloween” Merchandise Supports the Film’s Return to Theaters this October LOS ANGELES, CA – During Halloween, “everyone is entitled to one good scare,” a famous quote from John Carpenter’s 1978 iconic film "Halloween." And this Halloween, hundreds of movie theaters around the world agree, by bringing the classic films "John Carpenter's Halloween", "Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers", and "Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers" back to the big screen this October. To support this theatrical run and continue to provide fans with new ways to connect with the “Halloween” brand, Compass International Pictures and Trancas International Films has teamed with Creative Licensing to sign on a number of licensing partners. These partners include: • American Classics for apparel • Creepy Co for enamel pins, key chains, pendants, art prints and apparel • Licensing Essentials for apparel • Moebius Models for a collectible model kit • Park Agencies for apparel • Surreal Entertainment for beverage ware, glassware, 3D desk accessories, and fleece blankets • Starbreeze Studios and Behaviour Digital for an in-game map and character add-on to their existing video game Dead by Daylight.

Slots In addition, Starbreeze will run a special promotion during the week of October 24th to support its Michael Myers and Laurie Strode characters in the PC game Dead by Daylight.
