Evil is Real in the Latest Trailer for Halloween
In this new trailer, Laurie Strode’s thirst for vengeance is on full display.
By Chris Morse
The latest trailer for the new Halloween movie has arrived and Laurie Strode is truly out for blood. It begins without pulling any punches, putting Michael Myers right in town on Halloween night. He blends in with the many costumed residents who flood the streets and wastes no time before turning this into a night of terror for all who cross his path. The body count adds up quickly before the trailer shifts focus to our returning survivor, Laurie, who has been eagerly waiting the return of Myers for quite some time.
Her preparation for this moment has certainly put her at odds with her family but this quickly proves invaluable as Myers makes his escape and begins his killing spree. The trailer features plenty of new dialogue and most of it really hammers in the fact that Laurie is not screwing around when it comes to her desire to put down Myers for good. She is really taking this vengeance angle to the next level and the intensity is showing in this trailer.
Adding that layer on top of the incredible scenes with Myers out in the neighborhood has made this a phenomenal second trailer. It hasn’t given away too much, but what it did tease was enough to not only show some classic Halloween elements, but also puts on display a new kind of intensity in this high-stakes showdown. We would be perfectly satisfied if Universal refrains from showing much more than we have already seen. As it stands now, the hype is real and we are ready to make our return to Haddonfield as well.
Halloween sees Jamie Lee Curtis return to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago. The film also stars Judy Green (Ant-Man, Jurassic World), Andi Matichak (Replicate, Orange is the New Black), Will Patton (Armageddon), and Virginia Gardner (Runaways), with Nick Castle (Escape From New York) returning as Michael Myers.
The film is directed by David Gordon Green and will release on October 19th.
