The special will also showcase deleted footage, behind the scene clips, rare cast and crew photos and more.
“Halloween: The Inside Story” provides a look at the making of John Carpenter's 1978 low-budget horror masterpiece. Shot over 21 days in 1978, for just $300k, Halloween became the highest-grossing independent movies ever made, earning $47 million at the box office and making a star of then unknown Jamie Lee Curtis. Viewers will learn how Carpenter made movie magic on a shoestring budget by composing the theme song himself and creating one of the most iconic horror villains in movie history by spray painting a mask of Captain Kirk. “Halloween: The Inside Story” features interviews with the cast and crew including; Jamie Lee Curtis, John Carpenter, John Graham, director of the 2007 Halloween remake Rob Zombie, film critic Jeffrey Lyons and many more.
