A new international poster for Blumhouse’s upcoming Halloween has made its way online, and it features the murderous Michael Myers displaying his patented head tilt.
The silent killer struck this inquisitive pose back in the original 1978 classic after pinning one of his victims to the wall. It’s the cold stare of a psycho as he observes human suffering with a detached curiosity. The poster for the David Gordon Green-helmed sequel sees Michael recreating this head-tilt while wielding a knife against a dark background of leafless trees.
We’re not sure what Michael’s finding so interesting here, but you can bet that this isn’t going to end well for the people of Haddonfield.
The new Halloween sees Nick Castle reprise his forty-years-old role as the masked killer, if only for a cameo. The lion’s share of Michael’s scenes will be going to James Jude Courtney, who looked so creepy in the costume that even the film’s co-writer Danny McBride was too scared to meet him.
In his latest film, the man also known as The Shape will be reuniting with his old foe Laurie Strode, who’s spent these last few decades preparing for her assailant’s inevitable return. A recently released clip from Green’s Halloween showed how Laurie’s ongoing anxiety has created rifts and tension in her family, which includes her daughter Karen and granddaughter Allyson. At the same time, we also received fresh footage of Laurie being invited by a documentary crew to once more meet with Michael, who’s been spending these last few decades in prison. Something tells us that he isn’t going to stay incarcerated for long, though.
We’ll see how it all plays out when Halloween hits theaters on October 19th.
