HOLLYWOOD, Oct. 16 (UPI) -- The pioneering 1978 horror movie "Halloween" is being re-released in high definition at a limited number of U.S. theatres this month.

The film that helped launch the ongoing wave of slasher flicks will be shown Oct. 30-31 at 125 theatres and include a 20-minute featurette including shock maven Rob Zombie and some of the members of the original "Halloween" cast.

Zombie directed "Halloween 9," the latest installment in the saga of goalie-masked psycho Michael Myers, which was released this week.

National CineMedia said Monday the re-released original is digitally remastered for high-definition and sharper images of the knives, blood and terrified looks.
