Universal and Blumhouse have come together to give us horror fans something to get excited about during this quarantine- Halloween At Home.
"To entertain and bring audiences together, Universal Pictures Home Entertainment has organised weekly watch parties of some of their most iconic films. Every Saturday, starting May 16th, audiences can watch a Universal Pictures film along with special guests and hosts for fans around the world to share reactions and discuss their favourite scenes together on Twitter."
This Saturday, 16th May 2020, Michael Myers comes home as Blumhouse hosts a Twitter watch party of 2018's Halloween. This watch party comes with something extra special for fans though!
