This isn’t a game, Karen! Your mother, Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), has been through this too many times for you to go and get yourself killed on her night of long-awaited vengeance.
In the latest trailer for the upcoming Halloween film, we finally see Michael Meyers in action as he carves a new bloody trail through the streets of Haddonfield. Curtis’ Strode, Meyers’ ever-elusive victim has decided that decades of running and hiding is enough and, knowing perfectly well that the monster would escape captivity again, has been preparing for what seems to be a final showdown.
“I have prayed every night that he would escape… so I can kill him,” Curtis says, immediately running to her daughter, Karen (Judy Greer), to make sure she’ll be able to survive the night. Though everyone knows about Strode’s harrowing past with Meyers, her daughter still brushes her off as crazy. Dare we hope for a last-minute revelation on Karen’s part and a mother-daughter team up to put the beast down once and for all? We’ll have to wait until October 19 to find out. Watch, below.
