No joke, Fiends! DO NOT read on if you want to remain 100% surprised by the upcoming Halloween movie. Principle photography began January 13 in Charleston, South Carolina and local fans dying for a sneak peek have descended on the set, smartphones in-hand. To respect the integrity of the film, everyone was asked to refrain from snapping a quick picture while filming was in progress. But the crew gave Charleston’s horror-obsessed carte blanche to grab a few shots (below) between takes.
(Seriously, last chance to avoid SPOILERS…)
According to Facebook user Maria Mansfield Richardson, “We were asked not to shoot photos or videos while scenes were filmed so these pictures were taken between scenes. We were also asked not to photograph actors and extras in their costumes”.
The photos below were taken by neighbors in the area that have been watching filming take place over the last few weeks. BIG thank you to Maria Mansfield Richardson and Sarah Hickey for sharing these haunting set photos on Facebook!
The original Halloween franchise itself broke off into several branches, with Halloween H20: Twenty Years Later and Resurrection ignoring events of the 4th, 5th, and 6th films of the series. Jamie Lee Curtis’ last appearance in the Halloween series ended with Laurie Strode‘s death in the 8th film of the franchise, Halloween: Resurrection.
With all of this news on the Halloween film returning to it’s roots – there’s only one question remaining; I wonder what the mask will look like? You’re not alone. I’m sure we’ll all hoping the OG mask will make a return with a replica made for the film.
Halloween is a project of Trancas International Films, Blumhouse Productions and Miramax.
The film will be released by Universal Pictures on Friday, October 19th, 2018.
