It’s never too early to start thinking about my favorite season, Fall, and the greatest holiday of the year, Halloween. That holiday is also the backdrop for John Carpenter’s 1978 film, Halloween, one that spawned a sprawling franchise that’s been able to last four decades. Now, for the 40th Anniversary of the film that started it all, filmmakers David Gordon Green and Danny McBride have crafted a story that carves a new path from the events of the original. In Halloween (2018) Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago. Check out the first trailer below!
Universal Pictures will release Trancas International Films, Blumhouse Productions and Miramax’s Halloween on Friday, October 19, 2018. Master of horror John Carpenter executive produces and serves as creative consultant on this film, joining forces with cinema’s current leading producer of horror, Jason Blum (Get Out, Split, The Purge, Paranormal Activity).
