On November 3, 1976 Brian De Palma’s classic Stephen King adaptation was released to theaters and, next month, the Carrie 40th anniversary is getting celebrated in style in Downtown Los Angeles. Scream Factory is teaming with non-profit cancer support center weSPARK and the Theatre at The Ace Hotel for a special Carrie cast and crew reunion and screening of the brand-new restoration of the film, paired with a 1970s prom-themed party.

“We’re ecstatic about the 33% increase in total comics ordered from last year, which signals to us that Halloween ComicFest continues to grow as one the industry’s major annual events,” said Diamond spokesperson Michael Moccio. “What’s especially exciting is that the mini-comics increased almost 50% from last year. As an industry, turning the next generation into comic book fans is paramount and we’re happy we can contribute to that initiative by distributing the all-ages mini-comics that are perfect to give to trick-or-treaters.
