Are you ready to have the scariest October in recent memory? Because Halloween is coming. A few days after Blumhouse and Universal shared a very brief teaser trailer for the David Gordon Green-directed reboot, the full (and absolutely horrifying) trailer dropped, and it's safe to say we'll be having nightmares for WEEKS.
The updated take on the terrifying story sees Jamie Lee Curtis reprising her role as Laurie Strode from the 1978 original. Now older (but perhaps not altogether wiser), Laurie has spent years praying that her attempted murderer, Michael Myers, would escape from his psychiatric ward so that she can get revenge for the trauma he put her through by killing him herself. Well, thanks to a bus crash, she gets her wish, and the unstoppable homicidal maniac is let loose on the world once again.
The script, cowritten by Danny McBride and Jeff Fradley, also introduces new characters, like Laurie's daughter (Judy Greer) and granddaughter, so we can expect family drama and gore. What a combo! Watch the trailer above before it hits theaters on Oct. 19.
