Nothing says “Happy Halloween” like Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) and Michael Myers snuggling up in a pile of bloody leaves.
Well, maybe a brand, spanking-new Halloween film from director David Gordon Green would, but we’ll have to wait till the next witching season to see such a thing, with Curtis returning as foundational character Strode, to the franchise nightmared up in 1978 by the Master of Horror, John Carpenter, who’s chillingly returning to exec produce and compose the new reboot.
So for now, let’s just enjoy the Halloween greetings from forever-stalked Strode herself…
For fans of the franchise, there’s a little Easter egg in there too. “Some wounds never heal” and the blood on Strode’s arm are a reference to when Michael stabs her in the arm during the original, and then’s she’s left with a scar they show 20 years later in H20.
We’ll have to see if Laurie and Michael can mend the family’s wounds when Halloween reboots Oct. 19, 2018, in what’s reportedly Curtis' last go as the iconic, slasher-template-crafting Strode.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Laurie Strode comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
