When we talk iconic horror franchises, you don’t get much bigger than Halloween, the earliest and one of the most prolific ever. Now Justin Beahm has taken on the Herculean task of compiling a history of the entire series. From that first trip to Haddonfield right up through the upcoming Halloween 3D, Halloween: The Complete Authorized History will cover the entire history of The Shape.
The book is scheduled for an October 2013 release. You can follow all the updates on the book, and we’re sure there will be plenty along the way, at OfficialHalloweenBook.com and on the Halloween Book Facebook Page.
