The Brand New 'Halloween' Trailer Is Here

The official trailer for the new Halloween movie has dropped and it looks creepy as shit.

Michael Myers makes his unwelcome return in October (well, when else would he pop up again, eh?) and is reunited with Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis).

This will be the eleventh instalment in the movie franchise - picking up forty years after the original, It's basically a straight-up sequel to the 1978 classic and disregards any of the previous sequels or the Rob Zombie spin-offs.

Not that you'd know, but the movie also brings the original Michael Myers - played by Nick Castle in the first movie and then never again.

According to the movie's official synopsis: "Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who 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."

Horror-master John Carpenter is on-board as executive producer and is joined by lead producer Jason Blum (Get Out and The Purge).

The movie also stars Judy Greer (Arrested Development) as Laurie's daughter Karen Strode and Will Patton (The Punisher) as Hawkins.

The new movie means that the Halloween H20 story line of Laurie and Michael are siblings - or the fact that Laurie had Josh Hartnett as a son - doesn't exist.

Tweeting today, Curtis wrote: "You've waited 40 years for us both and the trailer is up now and a 60 second version is here! Happy Halloween! See you 10/19/18."

She's not wrong, either, fans have waited a long time for this and now the trailer is here, they're even more excited:

The film is due to hit cinemas on 19 October just in time
