Good morning Femm readers. Who here is a fan of the Halloween (Michael Meyers) movies? Well okay, the original one is the best one of the entire series but there are tons of fans out there. If you are a fan of the Halloween franchise, then I have some exciting news for you. Universal Studios are coming out with another Halloween film, but this time it’s not another remake but another sequel to the original. Jamie Lee Curtis will be returning to play her character Laurie Strode. Other cast members include Judy Greer, Will Patton, and Nick Castle as Meyers.
Not much is known about the plot at this time other than that Strode will have her final showdown with Meyers after she nearly escaped his killing spree four decades ago on that fatal Halloween night. The movie will come out this October 19th. This is the eleventh installment in the franchise; the ninth if you don’t count the two remakes that tried to reboot the series. This is also the fourth one that Curtis has returned to play her original character. The movies in order are Halloween, Halloween II, Halloween III: Season of the Witch, Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, Halloween 5, Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers, Halloween H20: 20 years later, Halloween Resurrection, and then the two remakes.
If you haven’t seen the first movie or it’s been a while since you saw it I can give you a quick summary. One Halloween night police rush to a call that has come in from house 43 on Lampkin Ln. only to discover that fifteen-year-old Judith Myers had been murdered by her six-year-old little brother, Michael. After the incident, Michael is sent away to a mental institution for fifteen years while be analyzed by the psychiatrist, Dr. Loomis, until he escapes the night before Halloween. Meyers returns to his hometown on a killing spree. Meanwhile, Laurie Strode, a rather responsible and mature student who doesn’t go out on many dates is babysitting her neighbor’s child. She is completely unaware of the danger that threatens her life. And thus, was the start of the franchise and fandom. That’s all for this post. ‘til next time.
