Myers Has Finally Come Home In The Official Halloween 2018 Movie Trailer!

The moment the entire horror community and beyond has been waiting for the better part of the entire year is finally here Haddonfield residents! Lock your doors, bolt your windows, and turn out the lights, (see what I did there), the Boogeyman has landed! And this time around, Laurie is ready for him.

OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS: 

Laurie Strode comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

In case you need a refresher:

David Gordon Green directs the movie with a script co-written alongside notable funnyman Danny McBride. Every sequel associated with the beloved franchise over the past 40 years, including in my humble opinion, the just as great as the original Halloween II, making this 2018 addition a direct sequel to the original from horror master John Carpenter. Halloween is throwing out the Laurie and Michael being related thing in favor of a fresh new look at the two subjects. In which case, I’m sure John Carpenter was thrilled with that aspect as he has stated repeatedly he regretted the decision of the whole brother VS sister route. Carpenter is serving as executive producer along with returning to his roots and overseeing the film’s cinematic score one more time.

The movie stars Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, with Judy Greer playing Karen Strode- Laurie’s daughter. Andi Matichak who plays daughter to Greer and granddaughter to Curtis.

Nick Castle returns to the role he originally made infamous, Michael Myers, while stunt performer and actor James Jude Courtney also is credited as Myers in, I’m assuming, more demanding scenes.

The cast also includes Virginia “Ginny” Gardner (Project Almanac, Marvel’s “Runaways”), Miles Robbins (Mozart in the Jungle, My Friend Dahmer), Dylan Arnold (Mudbound, Laggies, When We Rise), and Drew Scheid (“Stranger Things”, The War with Grandpa).

Malek Akkad is producing for Trancas International with Jason Blum producing for Blumhouse Productions. Green and McBride will also executive produce under their Rough House Pictures banner. Zanne Devine and David Thwaites will oversee for Miramax, which is co-financing with Blumhouse.

Halloween releases nationwide on October 19th, 2018 to celebrate the film’s 40th anniversary AND Myers’ cinematic birthday according to the original franchise canon.

It’s time Michael…

First Official Halloween 2018 Movie Poster Highlights an Aged Michael Myers

Here it is Haddonfield heads! The first official Blumhouse Halloween movie poster just dropped and Holy Shatner, Michael is showing his age! In which case, I myself can completely appreciate as the sequel is set in the present 40 years after the first Haddonfield Halloween incident in 1978, (which makes Michael 61 in the film).

While we don’t know a ton of details on what to expect from Blumhouse’s new take on the slasher grand-daddy helmed by David Gordan Green and co-written by Danny McBride and Jeff Fradley, we do know all other Halloween films, as we know it, are being disregarded, including the whole Myers and Laurie being related angle. However, the 2018 movie will pay homage to them in some sort of way, presumably with some fun Easter Eggs. Reports have come in stating that Jason Blum has seen a cut of the film in recent weeks and is “extremely happy” with the result.

The film has Halloween alumni Jamie Lee Curtis (Laurie Strode) returning to settle a score one more time with Myers, who is being taken on by the original Shape himself, Nick Castle along with James Jude Courtney.  Judy Greer is also cast as the role of Laurie’s daughter, Karen Strode. The Godfather of Myers John Carpenter is heading the film’s score along with an Executive Producer credit with fellow producers, Jason Blum and Malek Akkad.

Halloween will be in theaters on October 19th.
