The upcoming Halloween movie is almost here, and with it, we’ve been given the second trailer for the film. Footage was revealed back in July at San Diego Comic Con, but wasn’t screened – but now, we have a glimpse at what to expect in the very highly anticipated movie. After waiting for what has felt like an eternity for horror fans, we can actually finally say that Michael Myers v Laurie Strode is nearly upon us!

Just to make things clear for some of the people that are confused.
Laurie is alive because this takes place after the 1978 movie. It’s a direct sequel. They’re making it that Michael was captured that night, 40 years ago and has been in prison. He is no longer Laurie’s brother.

The film’s plot reads:
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 (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak).
Halloween hits theaters everywhere on October 19th.
