Lego “remakes” of upcoming movie trailers were all the rage in 2017. While their popularity has waned (as most one-trick-ponies do) the practice is still employed and, for the most part, enjoyed. Lego versions of horror movie trailers are perhaps the most ironic and entertaining, as the blocky pieces and inherent innocence of childhood clash with the viscera and subversion of the genre.
The latest upcoming horror movie trailer to get the Lego treatment is Blumhouses’s Halloween, set to hit US Theatres on October 19th (just in time to coincide with the 40th Anniversary of John Carpenter’s original Halloween). Give it a spin for some giggles.
Here’s the real trailer for Halloween for comparison (or on the off chance you missed it):
Laurie Strode (Curtis) comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers (Nick Castle), the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
Halloween is directed by David Gordon Green who co-wrote the script with his frequent collaborator Danny McBride. Besides Curtis and Castle, other cast members include James Jude Courtney, Judy Greer, and Andi Matichak.
