Michael Myers Is Not Fecking Around. Halloween 2018 Trailer Details and Release Date Have Surfaced!
The first trailer for Halloween 2018 was screened at CinemaCon and thanks to Eric Vespe of Rooster Teeth, we've got a full breakdown. You better prepare yourselves kids, because it sounds like Michael Myer is going to be a brutal motherfucker.
If you haven't been paying attention, this latest installment to the Halloween franchise will ignore ignore every other movie, except for the original. Taking things a step further, this film even changes the entire lore of the franchise in one foul swoop. So, Halloween 2018 is your classic "seboot".
Pretty interesting take. I'm sure there are some who this will piss off immensely, but I'm OK with it. Granted, the sibling aspect was the basis of the original film, but if you consider it, it's not vital. Other Hollywood slashers and psycho killers aren't related to the victims they revisit in any of their sequels, so there's no real need for it here. But don't let them not being related lead you to believe Laurie Strode doesn't take the threat of Michael Myers' return seriously. Quite the opposite. In fact, it sounds like Laurie Strode has been ready for this since November 1, 1978.
Swoon. OK. Now that the foundation is set, let's move on to the next level of the house of hell this movie sounds like it's going to be.
A bit of a Hannibal Lecter scene? I'm into it. Also, it appears as Michael is going to be less supernatural than he had gotten in the previously canon sequels, and more deranged lunatic.
Yowzers. In their determination to have us shitting our collective pants, Danny McBride and David Gordon Green are ramping up the "cat and mouse" games Michael plays with his victims. The poor fuckers.
Holy fucking shit, right? Release the trailer already! Unfortunately, for those of us not in attende it sounds like we're in for a long wait to see this amazingness for ourselves.
The original Halloween's Michael Myers, Nick Castle, took to his Twitter to say the trailer for the 2018 film wouldn't be released for the rest of the world for some time. Sucks, I know.
I cannot fucking wait to hear John Carpenter's score hauntingly playing over the aforementioned lunacy and mayhem.
Halloween slices and dices its way into theaters on October 19.
