Halloween


In Halloween, 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 (Stronger), DANNY MCBRIDE (HBO’s Eastbound & Down) and JEFF FRADLEY (HBO’s Vice Principals) crafted a story that carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 film, and Green also directs.

Based on characters created by Carpenter and DEBRA HILL, Halloween is also produced by MALEK AKKAD, whose Trancas International Films has produced the Halloween series since its inception, and BILL BLOCK (Bad Moms, District 9).

Curtis is joined on screen by JUDY GREER (Jurassic World, Ant-Man) as Karen, Laurie’s daughter who was taken away from her when Karen was a child, and who fluctuates between sympathy for her mother and frustration at the nonstop paranoia; newcomer ANDI MATICHAK as Allyson, Karen’s teenager who is attempting to navigate the rift between her mom and grandmother; WILL PATTON (TV’s Falling Skies, Armageddon) as Officer Hawkins, who was a young cop the night Michael Myers was taken into custody 40 years prior; HALUK BILGINER as Dr. Sartain, the psychiatrist who’s overseen Michael’s incarceration for decades; VIRGINIA GARDNER (Hulu’s The Runaways) as Vicky, Allyson’s best friend since they were young girls; and stunt-man/performer JAMES JUDE COURTNEY (Far and Away), who portrays Michael Myers/The Shape. As well, NICK CASTLE (1978’s Halloween) appears in a cameo as The Shape.

Accompanying Green behind the scenes is a seasoned group of creative talent, including director of photography MICHAEL SIMMONDS (Paranormal Activity 2, Cell), production designer RICHARD WRIGHT (Mud, All the Real Girls), Academy Award®-winning special effects makeup designer CHRISTOPHER NELSON (Suicide Squad, Avengers: Infinity War) editor TIM ALVERSON (Insidious: The Last Key, Orphan), costume designer EMILY GUNSHOR (TV’s The Last O.G., Salt) and composers CODY CARPENTER (TV’s Masters of Horror) and DANIEL DAVIES (Condemned), who are joined in those duties by John Carpenter.

ZANNE DEVINE (I, Tonya), DAVID THWAITES (Black Swan), JEANETTE VOLTURNO (Get Out), COUPER SAMUELSON (The Purge series), RYAN FREIMANN (The Hatred), John Carpenter and Curtis executive producer the film. Green and McBride serve in the same capacity under their Rough House Pictures banner.

Universal Pictures distributes Trancas International Films, Blumhouse Productions and Miramax’s Halloween worldwide.
