Michael Sends a Terrifying Message in New Halloween Clip

Halloween is still 16 days away, but Halloween is a mere four. Michael Myers is back in all his gory glory, and Universal has shared one of the most grimacing scenes from the film ahead of the theatrical release. EW exclusively shared the terrifying moment between the maniac murderer and one of his many victims.

Rhian Rees plays Dana, a journalist pursuing the true story of what happened between Michael (James Jude Courtney) and Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis) four decades ago. She and fellow reporter Aaron (Jefferson Hall) attempt to retrace Michael’s hunting ground. “They’re kind of reopening the case 40 years later, and trying to find new truths and new facts, and explore it in a different way, and maybe brings some things to light,” actress Andi Matichak told EW. Bad idea, guys. Very bad idea.

Dana takes a break in a gas station restroom, but she’ll find no rest here. Michael appears in the most menacing way possible – with a fistful of teeth. It’s a full minute of sheer terror that was previewed in the trailer but has some extended footage. We don’t want to give anything away, but this isn’t even the most horrifying moment in the scene. Things get even crazier from here. This was one of those scenes that made us love this sequel so much.

Director David Gordon Green elaborated in an interview with EW about the nature of Dana and Aaron’s assignment. “Yeah, there’s a team of British podcasters that are studying for various reasons the crimes of 1978. [They] are there to kind of learn more about the mindset of a madman and they accidentally end up stirring up the hornet’s nest, so to speak.”

Lesson here: if you go looking for Michael, you’re likely to find him.

Michael returns to Haddonfield in time for Halloween in theaters this Friday.
