Not only is Halloween coming to theaters, the novel version of the film, penned by John Passarella, will be released just days later.
“In 1978, Laurie Strode survived an encounter with Michael Myers, a masked figure who killed her friends and terrorized the town of Haddonfield, Illinois on Halloween night. Myers was later gunned down, apprehended and committed to Smith’s Grove State Hospital.
For forty years, memories of that nightmarish ordeal have haunted Laurie and now Myers is back once again on Halloween, having escaped a routine transfer, leaving a trail of bodies in his wake. This time, Laurie is prepared with years of survival training to protect herself, her daughter Karen and her daughter Allyson, a teenager separated from her family and enjoying Halloween festivities.”
Directed by David Gordon Green and written by Danny McBride, the film, which will ignore every sequel, stars Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, Judy Greer as Karen Strode, Laurie’s Daughter. Andi Matichak plays the role of Laurie’s granddaughter, Allyson.
Halloween opens in theatres nationwide on October 19th. The novel is set to be released on October 23rd. You can pre-order your copy of the book now from Dark Delicacies.
