UPDATED: 'Halloween' Trailer: Jamie Lee Curtis Hunts Michael Myers

Update: There's another new trailer, a Brazilian one this time, that features a crap-ton of additional footage. Enjoy. 

I’m here all day and part of tomorrow for Jamie Lee Curtis playing this weird survivalist aunt version of Laurie Strode. And because I’m not jazzed up enough about David Gordon Green and Danny McBride’s new Halloween, this new trailer is a hell of a way to start the morning. Check it out below.

Initially, I didn’t realize how stoked I was about this until the music, you know John Carpenter’s now classic tune, kicked in during the first teaser and I got chills. And that’s only amplified ever since.

Ahead of its premiere at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival, Universal and Blumhouse delivered this latest glimpse and there’s a lot to love. That early long tracking shot goes a long way to putting you right there in the heart of it, and the whole video captures the vibe and terror of the original.

Much has been made about how Halloween essentially discards, or at least sidesteps most of the sequels, but I’m okay with that. Sometimes I care about continuity within a franchise, other times I don’t, and this is definitely one of the don’ts. If you want to rewrite history, all I ask is that you do it well. And hell, if your movie has Jamie Lee Curtis throwing down with Michael Myers, that’s more or less all I need.

Here’s the synopsis, it doesn’t say much, but it says enough:
Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
Halloween premieres September 8 at TIFF. Shortly after that, it shows at Fantastic Fest. Remember to take those early, festival-goggle reviews with a grain of salt, but I’m still curious to see the reaction. The rest of us will have the chance to see Halloween when it opens wide on October 19.
