New TV Spot for Upcoming Halloween Sequel

New TV Spot for Upcoming Halloween Sequel

Horrorific content by Dusan on October 10th, 2018 | Horror News |

Theatergoing genre fans are always pretty excited for the new horror fare that hits theaters every October, but this year, the word “excited” barely covers the it and with good reason. Direct sequels to iconic hits like John Carpenter’s Halloween hardly happen every year! In fact, this year’s Halloween isn’t just the biggest fall release coming down the pipes. It’s easily the most talked about opening of the entire year.

Naturally, Halloween fans have been soaking up every second of the advertising spots that have been released so far, as well as combing each of them for clues as to what to expect from the new sequel. However, long-time fans that were hoping to catch a glimpse of nostalgic callbacks to the 1978 original have mostly been disappointed… until now, that is.

The latest television spot for the upcoming release is actually called Cheer for a really good reason that’s bound to get nostalgia lovers excited. Fans of the original Halloween will no doubt remember the school cheer that can be heard as friends, Lynda and Laurie leave school and head home for the day. That same cheer can be heard playing over the visuals in the latest television spot.

The new TV spot also features additional footage of Haddonfield kids walking, a cutaway to the headstone of Judith Myers herself, and additional shots of the notorious Michael Myers stalking the streets of Haddonfield once more. We even get to see Jamie Lee Curtis’s Laurie Strode aiming a rifle while firing off a memorable one-liner: “Happy Halloween, Michael.” Fans everywhere are loving the retro look the new footage has as well.

If you haven’t already, be sure to mark October 19th on your calendars. That’s when Halloween, the much anticipated direct sequel to the 1978 original, officially hits theaters.
