While I’m still not completely convinced that the world is ready for another Halloween film, there is one coming, and they do seem to be making all the right moves.

Jamie Lee Curtis is back in the iconic role, and so is Nick Castle, the man who originally brought the terrifying murderous psychopath to the big screen 40 years ago. Original director John Carpenter is supportive of the film, and is even working on the soundtrack. It seems the filmmakers are adamant to capture a lot of what makes the film very special.

But that’s not all. Speaking with Halloween Daily News, Castle discussed some of the real similarities between the new Halloween and the original.

“Yes. And it’s very neighborhood-centric, you know, like the first one. It feels a lot like (the first film). There are a lot of things coinciding (in the new film) that feel like clever ways to introduce a kind of déjà vu of the first one, without feeling like it’s being copied. The script had some very clever people working on it.”

Okay, but, real talk, is this movie any good? Will fans be happy? Castle seems to think so.

“Yes. I can be unabashedly proud to be a part of it, and tell the fans I think they’re in pretty good hands. It’s kind of like fans are making the movie.”

I’d absolutely love it if that’s the case, though we’ll have to see if this film really can incite the same excitement and fear it once did 40 years back.

What do you think of Castle’s comments? Let us know down below!
