New ‘Halloween’ TV Spot Features John Carpenter & Jamie Lee Curtis

A new Halloween TV spot for Cinemex features an introduction from original creator John Carpenter and the film’s star Jamie Lee Curtis.

Michael Myers is making a big return this year with the latest Halloween film. The pseudo-reboot is set to ignore every other film besides the original, effectively retconning the forty-year-old horror film franchise. Although John Carpenter is not returning to helm the film — David Gordon Green is set to direct — he will be contributing to the film’s score alongside Cody Carpenter and Daniel Davies.

Curtis was last seen reprising her role as Laurie Strode in 2002’s Halloween: Resurrection which suffered extremely negative critical reviews. Nevertheless, it appears that critics are responding very positively to the latest pseudo-reboot claiming the film was able to return to the original’s roots.

Check out the spot below!
