40 years after the original Halloween, Michael Meyers is back to kill, maim and scare the s— out of anybody who crosses his path and those crazy enough to buy a ticket. Negating the existence of the sequels and reboots that came later, this Halloween sees Michael once again breaking out of a mental institution and coming face to face with Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis). They’ve ditched the brother/sister storyline and damsel in distress/scream queen persona. This time Laurie wants Michael to come for her – so she can kill him. The new Halloween trailer looks like they’ve nailed the tone of the original without feeling like a repeat. Shotgun pumping and knife-wielding Laurie is a refreshing update to the franchise’s main hero.
In this episode we’re breaking down the trailer and discussing all of the highs and lows of each of the installments from the past 40 years. Whether you’re a fan of horror or film in general, you’ll enjoy listening to us geek out.
Written by Danny McBride (yes that Danny McBride) and blessed by John Carpenter (who’s returning to score the flick), our money is on this being a modern horror classic. October 19th can’t come soon enough.
