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.
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). Inspired by Carpenter’s classic, filmmakers David Gordon Green and Danny McBride crafted a story that carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 film, and Green also directs.
Halloween is also produced by Malek Akkad, whose Trancas International Films has produced the Halloween series since its inception, and Bill Block (Elysium, District 9). In addition to Carpenter and Curtis, Green and McBride will executive produce under their Rough House Pictures banner. Ryan Freimman also serves in that role.
“Laurie Strode 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.”
Chills, I have chills! I have a real appreciation for a well-made horror movie. It’s the suspense, not gore that ropes me in, so I was totally left behind during the Rob Zombie Halloween movies – I did not enjoy them at all.
Halloween (1978) is one of my favorite movies of all-time, knowing this is going to take the story into a new direction has me fascinated, I can’t wait to see what happens. Even though I have mad-crazy love for the film, Michael Myers continues to this day to scare the life out of me. Once, not long ago, I hid between two cars in a Walgreens parking lot to avoid the path of someone in a Michael Meyer’s custom. Sure it was Halloween and other people were in costume, but that was a little too real looking for me.
HALLOWEEN will be in theaters on October 19 2018. Will you be seeing it? I know that I will, although I don’t know if I am more excited or scared but I’m looking forward to it.
