Jamie Lee Curtis spills some plot details on the terrifying Halloween reboot

I'm sure I don't need to tell you what an incredible film John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN is, and although the many sequels were entertaining in their own way, they couldn't hope to live up to the original. Arriving forty years after the franchise began in 1978, David Gordon Green and Danny McBride's upcoming reboot will find Jamie Lee Curtis returning as Laurie Strode, and the actress spoke with Yahoo Movies to spill a few details about the film.

As soon as I read what David Green and Danny McBride had come up with … and the way that they connected the dots of the story, it made so much sense to me that it felt totally appropriate for me to return to Haddonfield, Ill., for another 40th-anniversary retelling. There was the idea of, ‘What do you call it?’ If I had had my druthers, I probably would’ve called it Halloween Retold. Because it’s being retold. It’s the original story in many, many, many ways. Just retold 40 years later with my granddaughter.

Although I'm still hugely excited for HALLOWEEN, I'll admit to some apprehension after hearing Jamie Lee Curtis describe it as a retelling of the original film. I would hope that it gives us a little more than simply throwing Allyson (Andi Matichak) into Laurie's shoes, but I suppose I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed that David Gordon Green and Danny McBride can pull it off. We'll also get to look forward to John Carpenter musical talents, as producer Jason Blum confirmed on Twitter that Carpenter would be providing the new score for the film.

Taking place forty years after the events of the first film and ignoring the many sequels, HALLOWEEN will find Laurie Strode having 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. The first poster for HALLOWEEN was released yesterday, and I've got my fingers crossed that a trailer will be arriving sooner rather than later. Jamie Lee Curtis has already seen that trailer, which she describes as "terrifying."

I’ve seen a trailer and I’ve seen some footage, and it’s terrifying. They went full-tilt boogeyman. And I’ve never said that in my life, and I will say full-tilt boogeyman for the rest of the year as I go around talking about this.

HALLOWEEN will hit theaters on October 19, 2018.
