Here’s the trailer for my script, Haddonfield Hollow. It follows the events of Halloween 1 and 2, but ignores all the other sequels. Also, all of the characters are new, except for Lindsey Wallace. Enjoy…
The Halloween theme begins playing very quietly and subtly as we pan down a darkening road with rows of large houses on both sides. There is a tall black iron gate at the end of the road. A bloodcurdling scream erupts from somewhere inside the gate and the haunting music grows louder and louder. The black gate opens and we see a stone sign on the side of the road with two words engraved in it…

Laura, Andrea, and Ryan walk down a crowded school hallway.
Joe and Lindsey yell at each other angrily on the stone steps of the Haddonfield City Hall in a downpour of rain.
