It is the boogeyman!

Although technically the 10th film in the horror franchise, the new Halloween is a direct sequel to John Carpenter’s seminal 1978 horror classic and will apparently be ignoring the events of Halloween II (1981) and Halloween H20 (1998), which also saw Jamie Lee Curtis return to the role of Laurie Strode.

She might be a grandmother now, but the trailer reveals Laurie is more than ready for a final confrontation with the knife-wielding Michael Myers, who appears to have escaped from Smith’s Grove once again.

Directed by David Gordon Green and with Carpenter onboard as an executive producer, this latest attempt to revive the franchise already looks better than the past sequels and Rob Zombie movies combined.

Michael Myers will be coming home to Haddonfield, and cinemas everywhere, on October 18, 2018 – just in time for you know what.
