40 years later.... He's back! Skeleton's Lair Scream Park is celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the movie Halloween with a special guest appearance from James Jude Courtney, the new Michael Myers in Halloween 2018. Courtney will be meeting fans and signing autographs Oct. 19-20, the weekend the new movie opens in theaters nationwide.
The original Halloween has many ties to Bowling Green and surrounding cities thanks to the film's creator and former resident John Carpenter. The 2018 version is one of the most anticipated horror movies of the year; it's the eleventh installment in the franchise and will be a direct sequel to the '78 film. The new movie also marks the introduction of Courtney as the new Michael Myers.
Be one of the first fans to meet Courtney, a rising star in the horror film industry. Tickets are $35 during his visit, and the ticket includes admission to all four haunted attractions at Skeleton's Lair, plus a meet and greet in the gift shop as you exit. There is an additional charge for autographs and pictures. Courtney will not be in costume.
