When it comes to horror franchises, few are more beloved than Halloween. Whether that should be the case is arguable, as some of the sequels are downright abysmal, and that’s not even getting into the divisive Rob Zombie Halloween films.
Still, there’s no doubt that Michael Myers is a classic horror villain for a reason, and that John Carpenter’s original movie is one of the all-time greats. Sequels like Halloween II, Halloween 4, and Halloween H20 also did their best to live up to the legacy.
This October, Blumhouse Productions and Universal team up to bring fans the latest entry into the Michael Myers saga, albeit one that ignores all the prior sequels. Halloween (2018) is a direct sequel to the original, featuring Jamie Lee Curtis back as Laurie Strode.
Directed by David Gordon Green – and written by Green and Danny McBride – Halloween (2018) also sees Carpenter himself return to produce and compose the score. Fans have been dying to see this trailer for months, and now it’s here, directly below.
Okay, how cool was that? Michael Myers is back, and with a vengeance too. If Laurie makes it out of this new terrifying encounter alive, it’ll be a miracle. For now, let’s all count the days until Halloween’s theatrical release on October 19th.
