Cool Horror Videos: Australian news goes behind the scenes of Halloween 2018

It's been ten days since the trailer for this year's Blumhouse-produced HALLOWEEN sequel was released (that's the trailer embedded above), and in that time a lot of on-set interviews with the people involved have been released online - like the one in which co-writer Danny McBride said they had considered making two new HALLOWEEN movies back-to-back, and the one where Jamie Lee Curtis said that she just did HALLOWEEN H20 for the paycheck.

Some of the interviews conducted on the set were by Nelson Aspen, the showbiz editor for the Australian TV news program Sunrise. Sunrise aired their HALLOWEEN set visit report last week, and in the piece they put together there are some interesting glimpses behind the scenes during the filming of moments from the 40-years-later sequel.

Intercut with these looks behind the scenes are an interview with Jamie Lee Curtis where she discusses her character Laurie Strode, and a brief chat with her co-star Judy Greer, who talks about watching the original HALLOWEEN for the first time.

Directed by David Gordon Green from a screenplay he wrote with McBride and Jeff Fradley, the new HALLOWEEN ignores the events of every film in the franchise except for the 1978 original. In this one, 

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.

Curtis and Greer (who plays Laurie's daughter Karen) are joined in the cast by Andi Matichak as Karen's daughter Allyson; Miles Robbins, Virginia Gardner, Dylan Arnold, and Drew Scheid as Allyson's Haddonfield High classmates; Will Patton and Rob Niter as police officers; Rhian Rees as a character named Dana; and Diva Tyler as a caretaker. Original Michael Myers performer Nick Castle and stuntman James Jude Courtney shared slasher duty.

John Carpenter served as executive producer on the new film and is composing the score.

HALLOWEEN is set to reach theatres on October 19th. In the meantime, you can watch the Sunrise set visit report right here:
