Nowadays, a horror film rarely ends with one film, and Halloween is no exception, nor should it be. Thus far, most would tell you that none of the Halloween sequels have lived up to the original, but if 2018’s does, it could bring longevity for the franchise in a way that’s never been seen. The sequel’s success perhaps rides on the heavy nostalgia it’s bringing from the first film. Bringing back Jamie Lee Curtis as a badass grandma, armed and ready to fight her nightmare, is a compelling development in the franchise. Blumhouse Productions is definitely game to keep it going in some way after this year’s release. Sorry, John Carpenter. Halloween hits theaters on October 16.
