Halloween: Laurie Strode shoots down a Michael Myers documentary in new clip

Forty years ago, Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) lost several of her friends to a crazed murderer and nearly lost her life to the same killer, Michael Myers.

So, why in the actual hell would she ever want to relive such a traumatic night? The last 40 Halloweens of her life went from fond memories of costumes and candy, to one of abject terror, the holiday serving as a brutal reminder of the emotional damage.

In the upcoming Halloween film from director David Gordon Green, a pair of British documentarians want to get inside the head of Mr. Myers. Their names are Dana Haines (Rhian Rees) and Aaron Korey (Jefferson Hall), and they're the folks you see at the start of the first trailer, when they visit him at his insane asylum, holding up his mask

A new clip reveals the mask trick revealed nothing and that they'd very much like Laurie to sit down with Michael, confident that he'd say something to her. Naturally, Laurie flat-out refuses, stating that there's nothing to understand about such a person, that he's batsh** insane, and that nothing else need be gleaned from him. 

Does this mean that we'll hear Michael Myers speak after all of these years? Is that what this scene is hinting at?

We can't say for sure, but we do know that the filmmakers' efforts to pursue the Michael Myers story will not end well for them. Remember, that's Dana occupying that bathroom stall in which Michael drops those bloody teeth (presumably pulled from the mouth of Aaron. 

Michael Myers resumes the killing spree he began 40 years ago, when Halloween (co-written by Green and Danny McBride) slices into theaters on Oct. 19.
