Over the last two weeks, the team behind the Halloween revival have been presenting images and now teasers leading up to the official trailer, set to debut on Friday, June 8, 2018. Releasing 40 years after the original iconic horror film, 2018’s Halloween sees Laurie Strode back for possibly her final confrontation with her maniac brother, Michael Myers.
The latest teaser trailer shows an isolated cabin in the woods, surrounded by warning signs to trespassers, security cameras, and lots of dummies filled with bullet holes. Slowly coming into focus, we see Laurie Strode taking aim for another round of target practice. The real kicker to this very brief teaser is that during the clip, Laurie is singing the same song she sang while walking to school in 1978’s Halloween.
This subtle attention to detail proves yet again that writers David Gordon Green and Danny McBride are paying very close attention to crafting this film as a sequel to the original movie. It’s something that many viewers won’t catch, but horror devotees are likely going to be very excited for the nod to the original.
Halloween will be in theaters next fall on October 19, 2018. Jamie Lee Curtis reprises her role as Laurie Strode, along with Nick Castle, who played the first Michael Myers. The movie also stars Judy Greer, Virginia Gardner, and Will Patton, among several others.
