'Halloween' Gets Horrifying New Poster From Todd McFarlane






Iconic comic book creator Todd McFarlane is taking a crack at one of the most iconic figures in the world of horror by crafting an all-new poster for the new Halloween, depicting the emotionless visage of Michael Myers. Check out the poster below, which is an exclusive for those attending this weekend's New York Comic Con.
(Photo: Todd McFarlane)
While the Halloween franchise isn't necessarily known for its bright colors, the starkness of the above image reminds audiences of how lifeless Michael Myers is, thanks to the use of his impromptu disguise.


In the new film, “A British documentary crew comes to the States to visit Michael in prison for a retrospective of the maniac’s night of terror — but their project becomes way more interesting when Myers escapes custody, retrieves his signature mask and seeks revenge on Laurie, with others naturally being part of his impressive career body count along the way. In the decades following the fateful Halloween night that forever altered the former babysitter’s life, Laurie has armed and prepped herself for Michael’s inevitable return — to the detriment of her family, including daughter Karen and granddaughter Allyson.”
The original Halloween saw Myers escape from a mental institution and steal a mask from a hardware store to disguise his identity. The film's crew famously took a William Shatner mask and distorted it beyond recognition, creating an iconic visage. The mask has looked different in the franchise's many sequels, with some versions being more bizarre looking than others.

This new film is set to be a continuation of the events of the original film, meaning the mask featured in this sequel is intended to be the same disguise as what we saw 40 years earlier.
"The film takes place 40 years later, so you’re not going to have that same mask, it’s not going to be this pristine, beautiful thing that it was in 1978. You have to approach it from that standpoint," makeup designer Christopher Nelson shared with Halloween News Daily about the new mask. "I had 40-year-old masks that I studied and looked at how they broke down, how they wrinkled, how they did this and how they did that. I also took into account the context of the film. Where is the mask now and where has it been for these 40 years?"

The new Halloween is almost here! But if your anticipation is through the roof, and you impatiently want to see even more footage, these Halloween clips might hold you over. I don’t want to tell you to not watch something, and as far as spoilers go, these two clips are very light. But if you want to go into the latest Halloween movie fresh, knowing as little as possible, perhaps you should steer clear and wait it out. If not, watch the new Halloween clips below.
I really hope the new Halloween movie doesn’t go overboard with clips. Not for my sake – I’ve already seen the movie. I just would hate for too much of the film to be spoiled before more people get a chance to experience it. In any case, here are two Halloween clips, should you want to watch them.
Halloween Clip – Laurie Talks to Podcasters

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.

Video URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O4s6wCBbKZk

First up is our modern-day introduction to Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis). A group of true crime podcasters (don’t laugh!) have come across the pond to do a special devoted to Michael Myers, and they also drop by Laurie’s fortress-like house for a quick interview. The podcasters are trying to understand why Michael did what he did all those years ago, and Laurie is blunt: there’s nothing to understand – Michael is just pure evil.
Halloween Clip – Laurie Talks with Her Granddaughter

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.

Video URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCIPV0wrQRs

Next: Laurie talks to her granddaughter, Allyson (Andi Matichak). Laurie has become a pariah in her family, alienating her daughter Karen (Judy Greer), Allyson’s mother. Allyson is the only family member left who really talks to Laurie, and tries to understand where she’s coming from. Here, Allyson urges Laurie to let go of the past, and her obsession with Michael Myers, and move on. Easier said than done.
Again, these clips don’t give too much away, but please, powers that be: don’t go overboard. The film is almost here, everyone can wait a few more weeks without anymore clips. Now that I said all that, here’s a new image from the film. It’s slightly more spoiler-y, so beware!
Halloween opens October 19, 2018.
It’s been 40 years since Laurie Strode survived a vicious attack from crazed killer Michael Myers on Halloween night. Locked up in an institution, Myers manages to escape when his bus transfer goes horribly wrong. Laurie now faces a terrifying showdown when the masked madman returns to Haddonfield, Ill. — but this time, she’s ready for him.

'Halloween' Sequel Reportedly Already Being Developed



The latest Halloween film doesn't hit theaters for two weeks, but buzz around the project is so strong that the film is projected to earn a franchise-best opening weekend. Possibly as a response to that excitement, Bloody Disgusting claims that Blumhouse Productions has already begun to develop a follow-up film.


The site claims that their sources revealed that Danny McBride and David Gordon Green, who wrote this latest film, won't be involved in the next chapter. An unknown writer is rumored to be developing the project.


Another interesting point that the site notes is that, with filming for this most recent film having begun in January with an October release, it's possible that, were things to come together quickly, it wouldn't be out of the picture for a new film to hit theaters next October. This upcoming film premiered early in September and has much more riding on it, with a potential sequel likely being able to come together in a smaller window of time.


News of a possible sequel doesn't come as much of a surprise, especially given that McBride and Green had initially conceived of their project as a pair of films.
“We were going to shoot two of them back-to-back, said McBride shared earlier this year with Entertainment Weekly. “Then we were like, Well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. This could come out, and everyone could hate us, and we’d never work again. So, let’s not have to sit around for a year while we wait for another movie to come out that we know people aren’t going to like. So, we were like, Let’s learn from this, and see what works, and what doesn’t. But we definitely have an idea of where we would go [with] this branch of the story and hopefully we get a chance to do it.”


Producer of the latest film, Jason Blum, has teased on multiple occasions that he's at least open to the idea of sequels, though he has also noted that the more important issue was making sure this year's Halloween would be a success.


Between this new film's current Rotten Tomatoes score of 85 percent positive reviews and its projected box office, it looks like Blum needs to start putting some thought into what a Halloween sequel could look like.
The new Halloween hits theaters on October 19th.

First 'Halloween' Reviews Are Bloody Good








Halloween comes early this weekend as the new Halloween movie opens in theaters.
With the opening just days away, new reviews have started to appear. So far, it sounds like the film is going to be a welcome return to form for the venerable slasher series.


Halloween currently has an 84 percent fresh rating from review aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes. The critical consensus reads, “Halloween largely wipes the slate clean after decades of disappointing sequels, ignoring increasingly elaborate mythology in favor of basic - yet still effective - ingredients.”
Halloween is directed by David Gordon Green from a script he co-wrote with Jeff Fradley and Danny McBride. Jamie Lee Curtis returns to the franchise as Laurie Strode, as does original Michael Myers actor Nick Castle. They’re joined by Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Will Patton, and Virginia Gardner.
Keep reading to see what critics are thinking about the new Halloween movie. Halloween opens on October 19th.

PETER TRAVERS, ROLLING STONE


"That Green’s sequel works as well as it does — it’s still a slasher movie — is due only in part to the director and his collaborators’ copycat admiration for Carpenter’s blueprint. Mostly it’s the troubled times we live in that allows this energizing, elemental horror film to touch a raw nerve for #MeToo. We watch a woman call a male monster to account for her own lasting trauma. That’s too real to laugh off as Hollywood make-believe. We’re living it." - Peter Travers, RollingStone

MARA REINSTEIN, US WEEKLY


"The new generation of Halloween watchers may be disappointed that Meyers doesn’t SnapChat his murders or traverse into the Dark Web. The film does not unspool on a series of laptop and iPhone screens. I say there’s something appealing, even comforting, about a throwback horror flick that’s overtly low-rent. Back story and ultra-meta quips be damned! Besides, I guarantee no other entry this year will star a 59-year-old female barking at her loved ones to get down in the panic room underneath her kitchen. If the bogey man somehow manages to come back after this latest face-off, at least we know she’s waiting. What a treat, indeed." - Mara Reinstein, Us Weekly

JOHNNY OLEKSINSKI, NEW YORK POST


"Most importantly, “Halloween” recovers its long-lost gravitas and self-respect. It makes us remember why we loved Carpenter’s original in the first place: It was artful, frightening and supremely well-acted — not Scream 4.' - Johnny Oleksinski, New York Post

JUSTIN CHANG, LOS ANGELES TIMES
"There is zero originality in all this mimicry, but there is an unusual and highly effective sense of purpose. The single-mindedness with which this “Halloween” ties itself to its landmark predecessor isn’t strictly a matter of fan service, though that commercial imperative is certainly present. It feeds into an overarching narrative ethos that says Michael Myers — an avatar of pure, banal, motiveless evil — will kill and kill again in ways that are not just inevitable but borderline predictable. And if you know this in your bones, the way Laurie does, you have a slightly better chance of turning the tables." - Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

JAKE COYLE, ASSOCIATED PRESS
"Green, the sometimes brilliant, sometimes confounding filmmaker of art-house indies (“George Washington”), broader comedies (“Pineapple Express”) and, more recently, a few starry studio projects (“Our Brand Is Crisis”), can’t recreate the eeriness of Carpenter’s original. But he pumps more blood into the story, both literally and figuratively. Foggy nights and gas-station bathrooms turn predictably gory, more so than the original. But the scenes that fall between those foreboding, twinkling piano notes have far more warmth and spirit than you’d expect. You almost wish Green — easily the most talented filmmaker in the franchise since Carpenter — was instead making something original here on the same streets, with the same cast (including the scene-stealing Miles Robbins) and none of the skull crushing." - Jake Coyle, Associated Press

BRIAN TRUITT, USA TODAY
"By staying true only to the initial narrative, this Halloween solidly ranks as the best chapter since the first – not exactly the highest bar – mostly by making Laurie (a remarkable Jamie Lee Curtis, whose last appearance in the series was 2002's Halloween: Resurrection) anything but a victim. And while it sticks mainly to the usual successful template, sending Michael on a slashing, slicing murder spree through Haddonfield, Ill., Green’s worthy revamp is also a nuanced look at mass tragedy in America through the lens of a survivor forever haunted by one deadly incident." - Brian Truitt, USA Today

BARRY HERTZ, GLOBE AND MAIL


"Gordon Green, along with regular collaborator Danny McBride (whose comic sensibilities are threaded nicely throughout the script), isn't interested in reinventing the knife so much as he is in ensuring it's used with the same precision and unrelenting terror as Carpenter wielded it. The result is almost the Platonic ideal of a slasher-reboot – it's fierce, it's lean, it's mean, and it has at least three first-pumping 'Hell, yeah!' moments. Hopefully, producers will never, ever have to make another one." - Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail

JOSHUA ROTHKOPF, TIME OUT

"What elevates Halloween beyond mere fan service is the presence of Jamie Lee Curtis, whose willowy Laurie Strode has been converted, Sarah Connor–style, into a shotgun-toting shut-in with more than a hint of crazy about her. That’s a great reason to return to the universe of Halloween: Everyone’s waving around a gun these days, and the idea that the survivor of the so-called 'Babysitter Murders' would, 40 years later, become a militia-worthy nut with murderous instincts of her own has a sad symmetry to it. Laurie tells us she’s prayed for the day that Michael would escape from the loony bin, so she can have her vengeance. 'Well, that was a dumb thing to pray for,' a cop replies. But we’ve prayed for it, too." - Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out

LEAH GREENBLATT, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY


"Instead, the movie mostly works because it’s so fundamental, and funny too: Michael still never speaks; his mask and his slow, deadly, deliberate walk say everything they need to. At 59, Curtis seems to have fully arrived in her role as a midnight-madness queen, and she has a great time in jeans and a grey fright wig, swinging her shotgun around and screaming at everyone to get in the safe room." - Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly

KATIE WALSH, NERDIST


"For all of the deep and fascinating semiotic analysis of this film, it’s also just a great Halloween movie. Matichak proves to be a perfect final girl as Allyson, cut exactly from her grandmother’s cloth: tough, smart, and principled. The film is stunningly shot, in highly stylized, beautiful images that never overwhelm the storytelling. And the score, by John Carpenter himself, as well as his son Cody Carpenter and Daniel A. Davies, is a masterpiece that will send chills of pleasure up your spine. It’s everything in a Halloween film that inspires us to return, again and again, but the reversal, reimagining and reinterpretation of these elements is what truly thrills in this new iteration." - Kate Walsh, Nerdist

Michael Myers Goes Unmasked in Creepy New Halloween Sneak Peek








With the new Halloween film stalking its way into theaters this weekend, Michael Myers has finally come back home. One more time, the Shape will come face to face with his longtime nemesis Laurie Strode, played by a returning Jamie Lee Curtis. Ahead of the film's official premiere, a newly-released teaser video from the film gives viewers their best look yet at Michael Myers, since the character was unmasked in the original film four full decades ago. You can take a look at the video down below.

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.

Video URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xro6VOOXEYs



In the clip, two true crime podcasters (Rhian Rees and Jefferson Hall) confront Michael in the insane asylum where the boogeyman has been locked up for the past forty years. They attempt to garner some kind of reaction from Myers by dangling his trademark mask, pleading for him to just take a look at it. Keeping his back to the duo, Myers slightly turns his head, giving fans a little peek at the murderer's face before he soon enough wears the mask once again. There's oddly something really creepy about the scene, which serves as a great way to set up what happens next.
With an amazing attention to detail, the unmasked Michael Myers is played by actor Tony Moran. While Nick Castle portrayed the masked version of Michael Myers in the original film, it was Moran who stepped in to play the Shape when he's unmasked by Laurie Strode. Even if we're not given as good of a look at Michael's face in the new movie as we were in the 1978 film, the fact that the same actor was cast shows just how faithful this sequel will be to John Carpenter's original. Castle is returning to play the role in a cameo appearance as well, sharing the role of the masked Michael Myers with James Jude Courtney.
In Halloween, Laurie Strode confronts Michael Myers one last time, intending to kill the boogeymen to keep her family safe. Having trained for the past forty years while anticipating his inevitable escape, Laurie is going to be ready for him this time. Joining returning star Jamie Lee Curtis in the cast are Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Will Patton, and Virginia Gardner. Original director John Carpenter has also returned to the franchise to serve as an executive producer, also composing the score with son Cody Carpenter and Daniel Davies.

Directed by David Gordon Green using a script co-written by Green, Danny McBride, and Jeff Fradley, the new film is on track to make killer profits at the box office. Early predictions have the film making upwards of $50 million, which could generate the start of a new slasher film boom in Hollywood. A sequel is reportedly already in the works, so it looks like Michael Myers could be here to stay. The film officially premieres in theaters everywhere as of Oct. 19, 2018. You can watch the face-teasing preview video below. This information comes to us courtesy of ComicBook.com.
