Update: The event was postponed from Oct. 15 to Nov. 19
BANGKOK — His name was terror for Generation X, and his unchecked malevolence still holds its own four decades later.
Just in time for its namesake holiday, horror legend John Carpenter’s 1978 classic “Halloween” will get a mid-October rooftop screening in the Thonglor area.
More than another slasher flick, the film drives suspense through artful use of sound, camera and sparse dialogue to tell the well-known take of Michael Myers, a boy who escapes a mental hospital to chase people down and murder them.
“Halloween” also launched the career of Jamie Lee Curtis, earning her the title Hollywood’s first “scream queen.”
Tickets are available online for 300 baht and include a drink and popcorn. Snacks and drinks will be sold. The movie starts at 7pm on Nov. 19. The event is organized by the Bangkok Open Air Cinema Club.
The venue is atop The Hive Bangkok, a five-story coworking space made from converted shophouses on Soi Sukhumvit 49. Walk or get a motorbike from BTS Thong Lo exit No. 1 to get there.
