In this town, Michael Myers is a myth. A ghost story. But this boogeyman is real.
There’s not much new footage in the latest trailer for this October’s Halloween, but we’re digging the presentation, which recaps the events of the original film in the style of a true crime documentary. Fitting, given the sequel’s plot involves a British documentary crew working on a retrospective of the masked maniac’s night of terror…
In next month’s film, directed by David Gordon Green:
“Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) 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.”
“A British documentary crew comes to the States to visit Michael in prison for a retrospective of the maniac’s night of terror — but their project becomes way more interesting when Myers escapes custody, retrieves his signature mask and seeks revenge on Laurie, with others naturally being part of his impressive career body count along the way.
In the decades following the fateful Halloween night that forever altered the former babysitter’s life, Laurie has armed and prepped herself for Michael’s inevitable return — to the detriment of her family, including daughter Karen and granddaughter Allyson.”
Michael returns to Haddonfield on October 19, 2018.
