I was particularly unimpressed with the teaser trailer for Halloween (2018). Then again, they call them ‘teasers’ for a reason.
The full trailer is better but not by a lot. Reason being, if you were in the water with a shark, would you wave a bloody steak in front of it?
Probably not, yet there’s a scene in the trailer where some guy visits the asylum (sanitarium?) where Michael Myers is being held, and waves his mask–the same mask he wore to kill a whole bunch of people in the original movie (though I don’t recall it having hair. I always assumed that that was Myers’ which doesn’t make sense since I recalled hat it covered his entire head)–at him as if he were taunting him.
It does without saying that this will likely not go well.
What I particularly liked, in the same scene, was the crane/drone shot. It reminded me a bit of a chessboard, with Michael at the center (or thereabouts).
