In a fall movie preview recently released by Fandango, there is an all-new look at the upcoming sequel to Halloween. A new photo has revealed that Michael will once again be bringing back the iconic head tilt from the original film.
Many will remember the scene from John Carpenter’s 1978 Halloween film, in which Michael terrifyingly tacks the character of Bob to a wall with his knife. Then, to admire his handiwork, Michael steps back and tilts his head, slowly back and forth.
Directed by David Gordon Green, in the new film…
“Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.”
“A British documentary crew comes to the States to visit Michael in prison for a retrospective of the maniac’s night of terror — but their project becomes way more interesting when Myers escapes custody, retrieves his signature mask and seeks revenge on Laurie, with others naturally being part of his impressive career body count along the way.
In the decades following the fateful Halloween night that forever altered the former babysitter’s life, Laurie has armed and prepped herself for Michael’s inevitable return — to the detriment of her family, including daughter Karen and granddaughter Allyson.”
In Halloween, the role of Karen Strode will be portrayed by Judy Greer (Jurassic World, Ant-Man). Karen is Laurie’s daughter, while Andi Matichak (Orange Is The New Black) will serve as the movie’s young lead, Allyson Strode (the daughter of Karen and granddaughter to Laurie).
Rounding out the cast are Drew Scheid (Stranger Things), Miles Robbins (Mozart in the Jungle), Virginia “Ginny” Gardner (Marvel’s Runaways) and Dylan Arnold (Mudbound). The young actors will play friends of Matichak’s Allyson.
Halloween arrives in theatres October 19th.
