Check out Michael Myers and Jamie Lee Curtis in first images from the new Halloween movie

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. It seems a British documentary crew comes to the US to visit Michael in prison for a retrospective of the maniac’s night of terror. Obviously things do not end well.!

Master of horror John Carpenter executive produced the film 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.

Judy Greer plays Karen Strode, the daughter of Curtis’ character, and Andi Matichak plays Allyson, the granddaughter of Laurie Strode.

Nick Castle returns to the role of Michael Myers, along with stunt performer and actor James Jude Courtney.  Virginia “Ginny” Gardner, Miles Robbins, Dylan Arnold, and Drew Scheid also star as friends of Andi Matichak’s character.

I had been wary of this new film as I do love the original, but the more I see and hear about it, the more optimistic I feel.

USA Today had these new images. Curtis also spoke about the film and returning to play Laurie Strode once more and how proud she is of the character.

In this case, she is well-matched, she is prepared, she is focused. She will be the one people are standing behind when that moment comes, because she’s the one ready.

It becomes a little bit ‘The British are coming!’ and everybody just gets tired of it. It’s the girl who cried Michael, and they’re all like, ‘Oh, my God, Laurie, shut the (expletive) up.’ And that’s why I like where we find her.

I recognize that it will be my biggest contribution.Despite writing books for children, all of my advocacy, all of my politics, all of my own personal journey, my legacy will be Halloween.

It also seems they will be trying to keep Michael as mysterious as they can. David Gordon Green had this to say about that and why they decided to ignore all the other sequels.

He’s the essence of evil, so we don’t want to get too much into the specifics of what makes him tick. So much of what makes the boogeyman horrifying to me is the mystery and almost cat-like mannerisms and curiosity of this character.

I started finding limitations [with the sequels] instead of opportunity, and thinking, ‘If there was a little bit of a clean slate to take it in a direction I selfishly as a huge Halloween fan wanted, where would I go?

Please let the film be good.

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.

Universal Pictures will release Trancas International Films, Blumhouse Productions and Miramax’s Halloween on Friday, October 19, 2018.
