“Halloween” continues to rule the final days of October, as the Universal/Blumhouse sequel stays atop the box office charts with $32 million grossed in its second weekend. With a 10-day total of $126 million, the film already ranks third among all Blumhouse releases and should easily pass the theatrical run of “Split” ($138.2 million) for the No. 2 spot this coming week, especially with Halloween night providing a big midweek boost.

In 1998 the clumsily titled Halloween H20: 20 Years Later marked the long-awaited return of Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode. Like the just-released Halloween, H20 jettisoned the plots and developments of previous installments and also transformed Strode from victim to avenger of the trauma inflicted by Michael Myers.

"I've seen a trailer and I've seen some footage, and it's terrifying," said Curtis, who reprises her role of Laurie Strode 40 years after first facing off against Michael Myers in the John Carpenter-directed classic.

It’s October, and you know what that means: Halloween, and the accompanying horror-movie marathons, are right around the corner. When psychiatrist Dr. Loomis (Donald Pleasance) sends Michael off the balcony with a handgun, his fall is met with applause, as well as shouts of “Get up!” and “One more time!” (At this point, remember, Michael has survived being stabbed by both a knitting needle and a knife.) Sure enough, when Dr. Loomis looks down at the yard, Michael has vanished — leading to surprised screams and wild laughter from the audience.

Tickets went on sale Wednesday, Sept. 30 for the event, which includes a special introduction of the film by writer and director John Carpenter. Halloween told the story of Michael Myers, a six-year-old who brutally murders his sister on a cold Halloween night in 1963. Michael (played by Nick Castle and Tony Moran) stalks Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis, in her big screen debut) and her friends as they babysit.

The couple, both 30, are both big movie fans, and Canipe, in particular, is a horror-flick fiend. The proposal, which was caught on tape by several of their friends, took inspiration from the first scene of the original 1978 Halloween film, which marked the debut of Michael Myers, the mask-wearing maniac who terrorizes a suburban California town.
