I guess it goes without saying that you may want to skip this is you haven’t seen the movie yet, but the opening credits sequence for the 2018 Halloween is now online in it’s entirety.
In the clip, the classic jack-o’lantern from the original 1978 film squashed, rotted and dead, but as the credits play, the iconic pumpkin comes back to life and returns to its former glory, not unlike the franchise itself with this film.
Check out the clip below!
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 is now in theaters Nationwide.
