Horror fans can hardly contain their excitement when it comes to the new and upcoming Halloween film. The hype on this film is real and movie-goers can’t wait to see what looks to be an epic addition to the fan-favorite franchise. If you were to ask John Carpenter himself, he’d certainly tell you that this film has his stamp of approval.

In a new mini-featurette on the film, Carpenter who co-wrote and directed the original Halloween back in 1978, delivers high praise of the new film saying, “This is as good as I’ve seen since we did the first movie.”

Film star Jamie Lee Curtis is also featured in the teaser below. She too delivers some key buzzwords which every horror fan wants to hear used when describing the perfect flick. She calls the film, “Intense! Just brutal!”

In addition to Curtis, the film also stars Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Will Patton, Virginia Gardner, and Nick Castle. You can watch the newest trailer for the upcoming Halloween HERE and check out the official film description below:

“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. Master of horror John Carpenter executive produces and serves as creative consultant on this film, joining forces with cinema’s current leading producer of horror, Jason Blum (Get Out, Split, The Purge, Paranormal Activity). Inspired by Carpenter’s classic, filmmakers David Gordon Green and Danny McBride crafted a story that carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 film, and Green also directs. Halloween is also produced by Malek Akkad, whose Trancas International Films has produced the Halloween series since its inception, and Bill Block (Elysium, District 9). In addition to Carpenter and Curtis, Green and McBride will executive produce under their Rough House Pictures banner. Ryan Freimman also serves in that role.”

Halloween will slash its way into theaters on Friday, October 19th.
