It is not much longer now until the world will be seeing Jamie Lee Curtis return to the screen 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.
Master of Horror John Carpenter is executive producing and serving as creative consultant on this film, as well as providing the score for the film. Carpenter joins forces with cinema’s current leading producer of Horror, Jason Blum. Inspired by Carpenter’s classic, filmmakers David Gordon Green and Danny McBride crafted a story that carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 film, and Green also directs.
A brand new featurette has just arrived for the new HALLOWEEN film. Head on down below to check that out.
This one is a minute long featurette that intercuts footage from the film with snippets from interviews with Carpenter, returning star Jamie Lee Curtis, and director David Gordon Green.
