It's 40 years since the original and Michael Myers has escaped from prison. Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) is ready. She's been waiting for this confrontation for decades. On October 19 we'll finally get to see the showdown between Michael and Laurie.
On the new Halloween movie, Jamie Lee Curtis says:
It is everything that the first movie was. It's simple, it's terrifying.
The latest Halloween doesn't take the multiple sequels into account. At the end the first movie (spoiler alert) Michael Myers doctor shoots him six times. The story picks up that Myers has been arrested and is in a maximum security prison, from which he escapes during a bus accident. He returns to Haddonfield and Laurie Strode is waiting.
