New Clip From ‘Halloween’ Pays Homage to the Original ‘Halloween II’

Although completely separated from any other Halloween movie outside of the original, director David Gordon Green still manages to throw in many nods to previous films in the franchise for his version.  Bloody Disgusting exclusively has a look at a new clip from the film, just ahead of it’s highly anticipated release this coming Friday.  The scene apparently takes place earlier in the film upon Michael’s escape, having returned to Haddonfield on Halloween night.  In the scene, Michael makes his way through the town, filled with trick or treaters, entering a house that looks a lot like the one featured in the original 1981 Halloween II.  You can view it below:

Directed by David Gordon Green, in the new film…

“Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.”

“A British documentary crew comes to the States to visit Michael in prison for a retrospective of the maniac’s night of terror — but their project becomes way more interesting when Myers escapes custody, retrieves his signature mask and seeks revenge on Laurie, with others naturally being part of his impressive career body count along the way.

In the decades following the fateful Halloween night that forever altered the former babysitter’s life, Laurie has armed and prepped herself for Michael’s inevitable return — to the detriment of her family, including daughter Karen and granddaughter Allyson.”

In Halloween, the role of Karen Strode will be portrayed by Judy Greer (Jurassic World, Ant-Man).  Karen is Laurie’s daughter, while Andi Matichak (Orange Is The New Black) will serve as the movie’s young lead, Allyson Strode (the daughter of Karen and granddaughter to Laurie).

Rounding out the cast are Drew Scheid (Stranger Things), Miles Robbins (Mozart in the Jungle), Virginia “Ginny” Gardner (Marvel’s Runaways) and Dylan Arnold (Mudbound).  The young actors will play friends of Matichak’s Allyson.

Halloween arrives in theaters October 19th.
