He’s back.

(Cue creepiest horror film theme music of all time.)

In the first official trailer for “Halloween,” which dropped Friday, fans get more than a glimpse of Michael Myers, the horrifying killer who has returned to haunt Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) once more after decades of being locked up for his crimes.

Myers is visited in prison by investigative reporters who are looking into his frightening tale — and reunite him with his iconic mask. But the action really starts when the gun-toting Strode appears, ready to kill her old enemy, as her granddaughter explains to her friends that the story about him being “her brother” is totally made up.

Strode will have her final confrontation with the masked figure in the film, who has haunted her since she barely escaped his killing spree four decades earlier. This time, she won’t be the one running.

“I’ve waited for him,” says Strode in the trailer. “He’s waited for me.”

Nick Castle, who played Myers and credited as “The Shape” in the original 1978 “Halloween” movie, is reprising the role in the upcoming film, an individual with knowledge of the casting told TheWrap last December.

David Gordon Green and Danny McBride are scripting the film, due on Oct. 19, 2018, with Green directing. John Carpenter, director of the original 1978 “Halloween,” is executive producing. Jason Blum is producing alongside Malek Akkad. “Halloween” will be distributed worldwide by Universal Pictures.

Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Will Patton, Virginia Gardner, and Nick Castle also star.
