    Microgaming Signs Licensing Deal For Horror Classic Halloween!

    He’s coming back! Microgaming Signs Licensing Deal For Horror Classic Halloween!

    ISLE OF MAN – Microgaming has signed a licensing agreement to develop an online slot based on the classic horror movie, Halloween®.

    The 1978 American independent slasher film was directed and scored by John Carpenter, co-written with producer Debra Hill, and starred Donald Pleasence and Jamie Lee Curtis in her film debut. The film centres on the character Michael Myers, who on Halloween night in 1963 at the age of six, murdered his sister. 15 years later, he returns to the fictional midwestern town of Haddonfield, Illinois to continue his killing spree.

    Halloween was produced on a small budget of $300,000 and to date has grossed $47 million at the box office in the United States, and $23 million internationally, making a total of $70 million worldwide. It was the first instalment in what has become the Halloween franchise, with 10 films in total released to date.



    The film (nearly 40 years later) continues to be a firm favourite with viewers and critics. In 2006 the movie was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”. It also features in many movie polls, including being named in 2010 as one of The 100 Greatest Movies of All Time (Total Film).

    David Reynolds, Games Publisher at Microgaming, comments: “Halloween is a true classic and set the standard for modern horror films. It was immeasurably influential in the slasher genre of movies, so it is great to be working with such an iconic and respected brand. Embracing all the elements of what made the movie such a success, our games team are busy developing a slot for release later in the year.”

    Ryan Freimann, SVP of Compass, adds: “We are excited to team up with Creative Licensing and Microgaming to bring Michael Myers and Halloween home to all of our loyal fans in the best possible ways through top licensees who create products we feel honour the character, film, and franchise.”

    Microgaming has signed an agreement for Halloween through Compass International Pictures, brokered by Creative Licensing Corporation. The game is currently in development, and scheduled to be released later in the year. It will feature the film’s iconic characters and the renowned soundtrack.

    This is awesome, please do a review when it's live. I've been checking out Microgaming on PlayOJO this week, some awesome offerings.

    Hopefully there will be some scary elements too.
