The new Halloween film is a direct sequel to the 1978 original, ignoring any other Halloween films that have come in between.
In the original, six-year old Michael Myers brutally murders his sister Judith, thus having to spend 15 years in prison. However, on October 30 1978 he manages to escape and returns to his hometown thirsty for more blood and murder.
He begins to stalk Laurie Strode in the original, and it is this cat-and-mouse relationship that the new film explores.
In the film, Laurie has been waiting all her life for Michael Myers to escape prison that she might have the opportunity to kill him.
Jamie Lee Curtis reprises her role from the original film, Laurie, whilst Nick Castle, will play Michael Myers.
James Jude Courtney, who played Michael Myers in the original film, will also make a brief appearance in the film but most of the legwork will be done by Castle.
Estimated budget: $10,000,000
