The Boogeyman is back as Blumhouse has released the main trailer for the up and coming spin-off of the first Halloween featuring Scream Queen Jamie Lee Curtis.
Most eminently, the reboot highlights Jamie Lee Curtis repeating her part as Laurie Strode, who broadly got away from the edge of Michael Myers’ sharp edge in John Carpenter’s unique 1978 slasher flick and landed Curtis a spot on the Hollywood A-rundown. Curtis isn’t the only one, however, as Nick Castle likewise comes back to stalk and linger over casualties as Michael Myers indeed. Curtis showed up in “Halloween II,” “Halloween H20: 20 years Later,” and “Halloween: Resurrection,” however the reboot will be Castle’s first time wearing the notorious tousled veil since the first “Halloween.”
You can watch the trailer above.
The trailer presents Castle as a detainee giggling insanely at a Michael Myers cover, at that point changes to a dreary Curtis at target rehearse and declaring, “I pray every night that he would escape.”
“Why the hell did you do that for?” asks the town sheriff, played by Will Patton.
“So I can kill him,” she answers.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
Carpenter fills in as the reboot’s official producer alongside Jason Blum, and it’s coordinated by David Gordon Green, who co-composed the content with performing artist Danny McBride. The blood and guts film is being delivered by Trancas International Films, Blumhouse Productions, and Miramax.
“Halloween” is set to hit theaters on Oct. 19, 2018.
