Local News

CHARLESTON, SC (WCBD) – Just in time for the year’s spookiest holiday, the new “Halloween” movie starring Jamie Lee Curtis is now in theaters.

The horror film – which reportedly takes places years following the 1978 original – was shot right here in the Charleston area.

Actor Danny McBride co-wrote the film along with director David Gordon Green.

Ahead of the movie’s release, a local artist painted a massive mural to promote the film along the side of DB’s Cheesesteaks near Avondale Avenue.

The mural features an image of Michael Myers with a butcher knife.
