The exhilarating new trailer, which dropped just before Halloween last year, went with the new tagline of ‘it’s always someone you know’ and was directed by the duo of Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett.

The film, set 25 years after a the streak of brutal murders which shocked the quiet town of Woodsboro, sees a terrifying new killer (or killers?) resurrect the famous mask and was well received by fans and critics alike, with well respected film review site Rotten Tomatoes giving it 77 per cent – which qualifies the film as a ‘certified fresh’ hit.
