You know when you hear about a you like band getting back together and part of you dies inside? Sure you want to see the band again but you know they’re only in it for the money and they’re well past their prime. Well that’s pretty much the same attitude many of us who remember watching Halloween as kids will have. Watching a videotape of it as a teen was something of a rite of passage for young men and ladies alike.
Now we have the latest installment (though there has been 10 or so other reincarnations over the years) that sees the return of the original ‘victim’ Lauren Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) in the sequel written by funnyman Danny McBride. Once again Michael Myers has broken out of the insane asylum and is headed her way for some good ol’ fashioned slashin’, only this time, she’s keen to do a bit of killing herself.
Alongside Curtis are Judy Greer as Laurie’s daughter and Andi Matichak as her granddaughter, with director of the original Halloween, John Carpenter, on board as executive producer and with a credit for music, with David Gordon Green directing this time round.
Halloween will be hitting cinemas around the country October 25th AKA just before Halloween (duh).
