Michael Myers has officially made his return to Haddonfield, Illinois, for the new Halloween trailer and we’re terrified.
“The Shape” has finally made his long-awaited return, and besides the nightmares that he’s sure to bring, he’ll also be bringing scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis, the shape himself Nick Castle, and the mastermind behind it all, John Carpenter with him.
Per the film’s official synopsis:
“Jamie Lee Curtis returns 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.”
That’s right, the new film is set to bring audiences back to Haddonfield one more time, almost 40 years later, to see the final battle between Laurie Strode and Michael Myers.
Of course, the films have had a long history and with this reboot, it appears that fans will have to forget everything that happened in the franchise’s previous plot lines, including those of Rob Zombie‘s 2007 and 2009 remakes.
Halloween is set to hit theaters Oct. 19.
