It's been nine years since a Halloween film has graced theaters, making it high time we got a new one, don't you think? This upcoming film, titled simply Halloween, will be a direct continuation of the events of the first film, forty years later. It looks like we're ignoring everything that happened in Halloweens II, H2O, and Resurrection, since Jamie Lee Curtis' character Laurie Strode is alive, doesn't have Josh Hartnett for a son, and isn't related to Michael Myers.

I imagine that the story they're setting up involves Strode being something of a weird recluse that all the people in town find amusing, until her prophecies of Michael Myers returning finally come true. I'm glad everything's more or less being retconned because there's some real garbage in this franchise. Sure, there's some decent stuff in there, particularly Season of the Witch, but it's mostly a lot of garbage and films attempting to make sense of the new mythology introduced by the last film.

Overall, the aesthetic for this one looks spot-on and David Gordon Green is an excellent director who likely knows his way around a genre flick like this. I think it's got limitless possibility to be a solid follow-up to John Carpenter's original. Halloween haunts theaters beginning on October 19.
