Halloween is Shooting – And There is Proof

Halloween 2018 - Laurie Strode and Michael Myers / Fair use doctrine.2018 is definitely a year for upcoming horror films like God Particle, The Nun, Truth or Dare, oh, and, of course, who can forget… Halloween (aka Halloween Returns and referred to as such from here on)?

The film has been shooting at a rapid pace and from seeing a bunch of behind the scenes stills, it’s looking all sorts of crazy. Jamie Lee Curtis arrived on set earlier last week and everyone went nuts. From reading a bunch of comments, I know I am not the only die-hard Halloween fan who is excited as all Hell. Some people are still in shock that an actual Halloween film is being made as we speak and Danny McBride co-wrote it with director David Gordon Green who were also the comic geniuses that brought us Pineapple Express and Your Highness.

Now that everything is running in motion, it’s safe to say that everything we were teased about early on is true. Jamie Lee Curtis and Nick (The Shape) Castle will both reprise their roles. John Carpenter will in fact not only help produce the film with Trancas International and Blumhouse, but he is set to score it, as well.

While shooting the film, Nick Castle who portrayed The Shape in 1978, is back and behind the mask again and somebody took a picture of him getting ready to get into action. Halloween Returns is still slated to open on October 19, 2018 (ironically enough, that just so happens to be Michael Myers’ birthday).

For me, this is the number 1 film of the year to see. I just hope that they all know what they are doing and us die-hard fans will not be disappointed and we will finally see a sequel that lives up to the original. You can expect to see a teaser trailer for Halloween Returns around April or May to really kick the anticipation into gear.

Michael lives, and this time, I’m ready.

Halloween (2018) Officially Filming!

Halloween (2018) Officially Filming!

Hey, horror fans, Horrormadam here bringing you the hottest update. Forty years later, the new Halloween movie has officially begun filming! If I were any more excited…hell, even I don’t know. Maybe I will explode — feels like it! My favorite horror film has always been John Carpenter’s 1978 masterpiece Halloween. To know that a new one is coming is like Christmas to a horror fan. Michael Myers will soon be scaring the hell out of us once again!

This Halloween is being produced by Blumhouse Productions the people who have brought us Paranormal Activity, The Purge, Oculus, Get Out, and Split. To say that these people know horror would be a gross understatement. Hell, they are slowly becoming the first name in horror. The film is being directed by David Gordon Green (Our Brand is Crisis, Your Highness, and Pineapple Express). As a horror fan, I can only hope that he knows horror. This Halloween, fortunately, has John Carpenter doing the character writing. Debra Hill did some of the original writing on the original Halloween and all of the other Halloween films and projects. She and John worked together on the Halloweens, The Fog, and Escape From New York. The screenplay is written by David Gordon Green and Danny McBride who wrote Your Highness and Eastbound & Down.

This time around we have Judy Greer (Jurassic WorldCarrie) as Karen Laurie Strode’s daughter, Andi Matichak (666 Park Avenue, Orange is the New Black) as the granddaughter, and Nick Castle (the original shape from Halloween) as Michael Myers along with James Jude Courtney (Far and Away, Buffy The Vampire Slayer) also as Michael Myers. And, as the final and most exciting casting news, we have Jamie Lee Curtis — the greatest scream queen ever (Halloween, Prom Night, The Fog, and Terror Train) — returning to her role as Laurie Strode! Even though she was killed off in Halloween Resurrection in 2002, this film does not have the progression of the previous sequels (much to our delight).

Halloween (2018)

<em>Halloween</em> is being shot in South Carolina and has officially begun filming. The premise is short and sweet: Laurie Strode 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.

Brother sister love-Halloween (2018)

So we here at House of Tortured Souls will keep you informed of every new bit of news we can get our hands on in regards to the 2018 Halloween, so stay tuned and just remember: Halloween is the night he comes home, and you better trick or treat…or die.
