The countdown has already started. Halloween (2018) premiered last weekend at the Toronto International Film Festival and the reviews were quite positive. We still have to wait a little bit more to see the movie hitting theaters worldwide. Some official opening dates are the 19th of October in the USA, UK, or Canada, 25th of October in Germany, France or Spain. Check out your closest theater to make sure of the final dates. And then, by the time the day of Halloween arrives on the 31st of October, we all will have tasted the murdering thirst of Michael Myers.
As you might know, this new Halloween (2018) movie will take it from where the events of Halloween II (1981) ended. 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 is directing this new film that he wrote together with Danny McBride. Besides Jamie Lee Curtis reprising her unforgettable character Laurie Strode for the first time after decades, also Judy Greer, Virginia Gardner, Will Patton, Miles Robbins, Andi Matichak, Dylan Arnold, Omar J. Dorsey, Rhian Rees and Nick Castle as the infamous Michael Myers are starring.
Jason Blum, the owner of Blumhouse Productions, responsible for this new title, is accomplishing the promise he made last year about bringing the new Halloween movie by October 2018. “You can kill me. You can behead me. You can chop my hand off, the prince of horror, you can cut my hand off. That’s on the record” mentioned in an interview. And if that wasn’t enough, the creator of the original film Halloween (1978), John Carpenter, is returning to the franchise as executive producer and music score composer of this new nightmare. And that, ladies and gentleman, marks a milestone in the history books of horror movies.
With the headline “Evil is real”, a sentence mentioned by Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode already present on the movie final trailer, this time the victim becomes the hunter. Laurie Strode fears Michael Myersno more. And she is focused on killing him for once and for all in this so-called “final confrontation”. Will this be the end of one of the most prolific slasher horror movie franchises ever existed? Well, probably not. Probably we will be getting more Halloween sequels and reboots in the upcoming time. But, so far, this year we all are together with Laurie.
Watch the final official trailer for Halloween (2018) here, because shit gets interesting.
