Will the new 'Halloween' reboot live up to the hype?

The highly anticipated trailer to "Halloween" recently dropped, and the sequel to the original film—conveniently retconning all the previous sequels—is making a splatter. Fans can't wait to see Jamie Lee Curtis return as Laurie Strode, almost 40 years after the original movie. But some are confused by all the past and present retconning. And the more recent "Halloween" movies, including the Rob Zombie reboot, are universally panned. So, some are still skeptical if the film will live up to the hype. What do you think?

Below is the synopsis of "Halloween," per IMDB.

Laurie Strode comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

But the new "Halloween" movie may be confusing to fans both old and new. This film retcons all previous sequels. Forbes' Scott Mendelson wrote: 

It, also, amusingly enough, retcons Halloween: H20 which itself wrote out every Halloween sequel after 1981’s Halloween II. The Jamie Lloyd trilogy (Return of Michael Myers in 1988, Revenge of Michael Myer in 1989 and Curse of Michael Myers in 1995) just can’t any respect around these parts, which is sad since they are all better than Halloween: Resurrection. And, yes, I have become one of those punks who now views Halloween III: Season of the Witch as the best Halloween sequel, although I can certainly understand why that one “doesn’t count.” At least this time it has been 16 years since a non-Rob Zombie Halloween flick.

Fans are hyped!

Some fans are okay with the retcon, or even a "Halloween" paradox.

Laurie Strode and Michael Myers are no longer brother and sister, but the film cleverly addresses it.

But for others, the recon is just too confusing. Again, this isn't the first time "Halloween" movies have been retconned. Maybe it's time to stop making "Halloween" movies?

Some argue this retcon sequel is unnecessary, but who doesn't love Jamie Lee Curtis?!
