But with Curtis coming back to reprise her role, and Laurie evidently dealing with Michael four decades later, I'm both incorrect and puzzled. From there, not even the people making it can agree, and Halloween III: Season of the Witch, Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, and Halloween: H20 have all effectively been the third movie in the franchise.

It was over two years ago that Blumhouse announced they were set to bring the next chapter in the Halloween franchise to the big screen and have continued to turn heads with their ideas for the project.

The character later returned in Halloween H20: 20 Years Later and was then seemingly killed off in Halloween: Resurrection. Universal said the 2018 film "carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 film", suggesting that it will ignore the events in the 2002 film. Much of the film is shot through the killer's visual point of view, which gives the viewer the constant and terrifying feeling that the protagonist is always being watched. Green is directing, and horror master John Carpenter, who co-wrote and directed the original, is executive producing with Green and McBride via their Rough House Pictures. Blumhouse also revealed the first, brief synopsis for the new Halloween, which promises an epic final match between Laurie Strode and Michael Myers.

Universal Pictures also set October 19, 2018, as the release for the final film in the "Halloween" series. The show paid homage to horror tropes and featured Curtis alongside a new generation of "scream queens", including Emma Roberts, Ariana Grande, Billie Lourd, and Abigail Breslin.
