Yes folks, he’s baaaack. As we told you yesterday, the trailer for the latest installment of Halloween drops today and fans are clearly beyond excited to see Michael Myers and Laurie Strode back on the big screen.
Without further ado, let’s take a look and then get some fan reaction.
As reported, Jaime Lee Curtis will be returning as her recurring role as Laurie Strode for the latest in the series which is set to be released in October. This time around she is heavily prepared for the inevitable return of her homicidal brother, bogeyman Michael Myers (played by Nick Castle) who has scared the pants of of audiences for 40 years.
In anticipation of her brother’s return, Strode has already prepared herself for Michael’s certain reign of terror and is ready take him on in order to protect her family that now includes daughter Karen (played by Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson who is played by Andi Matichak. Also joining the cast this time around will be Will Patton (CSI, The Mothman Prophecies.)
John Carpenter’s original Halloween hit theaters forty years ago and quickly became a cult favorite despite the shoestring budget they had to work with. In fact, the iconic Michael Myers mask only cost two-dollars that the crew nabbed from a costume store.
That same mask that we all know and love and are completely creeped out by? Well that $2.00 mask was originally a mask of William Shatner that the the filmmakers would go on to spray paint and reshape until they got the result that they wanted.
Hey – for a couple of bucks and some elbow grease it certainly paid off for the multi-million dollar franchise that it is today. Unfortunately for fans, it is also reported that Carpenter has claimed this will be the last in the series of films.
Let’s take a look at what fans are saying.

Think about it though, that asylum is heavily guarded and secure.. they have to have (give) a reason for Michael to escape and the only logical way is if he's been transported, which is an unknown variable. I'm liking what I'm seeing so far.

With the releases of Matt Dillon’s new film (and already notorious) The House That Jack Built, to Matthew McConaughey’s newest, true crime-based White Boy Rick and the return of Jamie Lee Curtis in the latest of the Halloween franchise, it’s fair to say that Fall is looking great so far.here and on Twitter here.
