Halloween 2018 confirmed as an 18-certificate by the BBFC

Halloween 2018
Halloween 2018 is out in two weeks and the BBFC have, today, confirmed it WILL get an 18-certificate. That might not sound surprising to some, but 2002’s Halloween Resurrection broke the run of 18-certs by being dumbed down to a 15.

At this point, the BBFC page just states it’s an 18 because of “strong bloody violence, gore”, but more info will be available next Tuesday, October 9th.

Halloween 2018 is released in the UK on October 19th.

September 9th:

Halloween 2018 is still coming. Yes, it wasn’t a dream… or a nightmare.

Apparently this will be Laurie’s FINAL encounter with Michael… yes, how many times have we heard that before?

The only question we’ll get an answer to is – will it be a 15-cert or an 18-cert? They’ve all been 18 apart from 2002’s Halloween Resurrection. The answer will no doubt come before too long.

Halloween 2018 is released in the UK on October 19th.

Check out the new trailer below:

June 18th:

Halloween 2018. Yes, remember Halloween? It was the great horror movie from John Carpenter which was then trashed by a run of utterly risible sequels, leading up to the godawful Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, which was completely unnecessary, other than being a cash-grab for Jamie Lee Curtis. Oh, as was Halloween Resurrection in 2002.

Well, now she’s doing it again. Is it Halloween H40: 40 Years Later? No, it’s just Halloween. This is happening a lot with sequels when they reboot them, like the videogames Thief and Hitman.

So, Jamie Lee Curtis is back as Laurie Strode, and we’re told she has come 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.

The dumb thing with this is that it just throws the series’ history out of the window, as Michael Myers has actually been locked away in prison for 40 years. So who else did she bump off, beforehand?

And it says “Executive Producer: John Carpenter“, but don’t get too excited, as Executive Producer could mean anything from being really hands on, to just having a financial interest.

Ok, so another Halloween return in 2038? See you in the ticket queue!

Halloween 2018 is released in the UK on October 19th.
