With the streak of a tear, Like morning dew
Myers was The Thing all along!
I jokingly thought this too when trying to figure out what Green could possibly be talking about. Would explain a lot! They're definitely leaning back into the occult, which would fit the bill of a lot of other Carpenter, but which they also rebooted this thing after the original to specifically get away from because the non-Carpenter Halloweens botched it so horribly (they're staying vague enough for plausible deniability this time)! Again, it looks insular as hell for something that's supposed to, thematically at least, cover the scope of Carpenter's career (his first movie took place in space!), like Mike's off the grid but he and Laurie will meet up in some house to fight to the death, both "die." THE END...? I'm hoping to be pleasantly surprised with more than kerts the eye in these trailers, but I'm not holding my breath. Also, Michael has just been living in a cave, in costume no less, for the last 4 years? Did he take the previous three halloweens off? Will they reference COVID (he's an older guy; the mask probably saved him =)? It's basically a mess no matter what they do now.
There is one thing that will make this worth it no matter what though, the real exciting Halloween release October 14th:
Another soundtrack of this beautiful, nostalgic weirdness.
