Universal has released a new HALLOWEEN trailer. Jamie Lee Curtis reprises her role as Laurie Strode, with Judy Greer playing her daughter, and Andi Matichak as her granddaughter. The film finds Laurie traumatized by her encounter with Myers all those decades ago and determined to take him down if and when he escapes the asylum where he’s been locked up since his first killing spree. Naturally, her greatest fears come true when Myers breaks loose, and Strode has to confront the man that’s haunted her one last time. David Gordon Green (STRONGER) is directing from a script he co-wrote with Danny McBride and Jeff Fradley.
The new Halloween looks slick and fantastic. I’m all for Laurie getting a chance to go all Crazy Dr. Loomis on her brother/not-her-brother and get her final revenge. “The Shape” is still creeping around at a deliberate snail’s pace (hey, he ain’t as limber as he used to be, who is?), hunting down people in his quest to slay Ms. Strode. There’s also some fantastic camera work at play, so I’m 100% signed up for this slasher flick.
HALLOWEEN opens October 19th and also stars Will Patton, Virginia “Ginny” Gardener, Dylan Arnold, Drew Scheid, and Miles Robbins.
