Michael Myers is returning to finish what he started on Halloween night 40 years ago, but this time, Laurie Strode is ready for him.

The first trailer for Halloween is here. The movie is a direct sequel to John Carpenter's classic 1978 film, skipping all sequels and reboots made in the last 40 years. Michael has been in an asylum since Halloween night in 1978, waiting for an opportunity to go home to Haddonfield. Halloween hits theaters on October 19th, 40 years to the day that the original film was released.
