The new entry in the popular slasher films saga, one of the most long-awaited one for several reasons, has the first trailer out. And why is it so long awaited, if the Rob Zombie reboots Halloween (2007) and Halloween II (2009) are so close in time? Well, mainly because this new title means the return to three of the main protagonists of the original classic film Halloween (1978). First of all, Jamie Lee Curtis and Nick Castle return as the probably most iconic characters they’ve ever played Laurie Strode and Michael Myers. And also, because the creator of the original saga John Carpenter returns to a Halloween film since producing Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982).
John Carpenter himself has admitted several times he lost interest in the Halloween sequels and remakes because they weren’t frightening enough. The magic was gone, in the opinion of the Master of Horror. So when he was asked to be back to the franchise it was only with one idea in his head: “I’m going to help to try to make the 10th sequel the scariest of them all” he claimed. After several meetings with the people of Blumhouse Productions and writer/director David Gordon Green, Carpenter was back in the game as the movie consultant, executive producer and composer of the film soundtrack. That, plus the addition of the classic stars Jamie Lee Curtis and Nick Castle threw more gasoline to the fire of the Halloween universe. And then is when things got serious.
Judy Greer, Virginia Gardner, Andi Matichak, Will Patton, Jefferson Hall, Toby Huss, James Jude Courtney, Haluk Bilginer, Miles Robbins, Christopher Allen Nelson and Omar J. Dorsey accompany to the mentioned already Jamie Lee Curtis and Nick Castle as the stars of the film. In Halloween (2018), 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. David Gordon Green directs a screenplay he also wrote together with Jeff Fradley and frequent collaborator Danny McBride. Blumhouse Productions and Miramax are in charge of the production.
Halloween (2018) is expected to hit theaters worldwide in 19 October 2018, but the first official trailer is finally here:
