In 2018, David Gordon Green’s Halloween, starring icon Jamie Lee Curtis,killed at the box office, earning more than $250 million worldwide, becoming the highest-grossing chapter in the four-decade franchise and setting a new record for the biggest opening weekend in history for a horror film starring a woman.
And the Halloween night when Michael Myers returned isn’t over yet.
Minutes after Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), her daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) left masked monster Michael Myers caged and burning in Laurie’s basement, Laurie is rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, believing she finally killed her lifelong tormentor.
But when Michael manages to free himself from Laurie’s trap, his ritual bloodbath resumes. As Laurie fights her pain and prepares to defend herself against him, she inspires all of Haddonfield to rise up against their unstoppable monster.
The Strode women join a group of other survivors of Michael’s first rampage who decide to take matters into their own hands, forming a vigilante mob that sets out to hunt Michael down, once and for all.
As someone who likes to go in as fresh as possible for movies I’m looking forward to, it has sure been difficult avoiding footage and updates–especially since there was an extra year of waiting time once the release date was pushed back a year. I cannot stress how much I’d like to press play on the trailer above, but I’m so close to just sitting in a theater and seeing it all unfold unspoiled so I can wait.
If you need something to help you make it through the next few weeks, though, you can enter for your chance to win a trip for two to Los Angeles to be “killed” by Michael Myers (aka The Shape) on the set of your own Hollywood production.
