After a long wait, Blumhouse has dropped the highly anticipated trailer for Halloween. The trailer showcases Laurie Strode ready to take on the boogeyman, Michael Myers, in all his brutal glory.
David Gordon Green directed the film and also co-wrote it along with Danny McBride and Jeff Fradley. Jamie Lee Curtis reprises her iconic role of Laurie Strode and Nick Castle returns as Haddonfield slasher Michael Myers. John Carpenter also returns to the franchise as the composer and executive producer.
Back in April, Jamie Lee Curtis took to the stage to reveal the first trailer for Halloween at CinemaCon. The legendary actress let the crowd know that the film would be “hella scary,” and “will scare the living sh-t out of all of you.” Many in attendance took to social media after seeing the preview and delivered high praise for what they saw.
The latest Halloween film ignores all sequels and reboots of the franchise and picks up forty years after the 1978 film. In March, co-writer Danny McBride told Flickering Myth that “We’re making Halloween 2. We do [reference the other movies]. For fans, we pay homage and respect to every Halloween that has been out there.”
Halloween debuts in theaters on October 19. Watch the trailer below and be sure to keep it locked to Horror News Network for more news on the latest Halloween movie.
