When Michael Myers quietly stalks the neighborhood streets of Haddonfield on October 19, it will be for the first time in 40 years. The latest film in the iconic horror franchise, simply titled “Halloween,” is a homecoming for Myers and protagonist Laurie Strode.
It is a return to a form that tunes out the convoluted storylines of the previous nine installments. UNCSA School of Filmmaking alumni Jeff Fradley (’98), Danny McBride (’99) and David Gordon Green (’98) penned the screenplay, with Green at the helm as Director. Together, these friends and self-proclaimed film nerds bring a new, terrifying energy to a much-anticipated chapter in the “Halloween” saga.
