One of the most nerve-shredding horror movie characters has been reborn again for a terrifying film which will hit cinema screens this autumn.

Knife-wielding masked murderer Michael Myers returns in the latest iteration of Halloween, which debuts on the big screen next week – and the Mercury has three pairs of tickets to give away to horror fans.

It is the 11 instalment in the Halloween series, and serves as a sequel to the original film which was released in 1978.

Much of the original cast stars in the new film as Jamie Lee Curtis and Nick Castle square off once again as Laurie Strode and Myers respectively, four decades after escaping the slasher’s previous killing spree.

Myers, boasting a hideous mask and a 12-inch blade, has haunted Laurie’s mind ever since, but their paths cross one more time in their final confrontation – but who will emerge alive?

Halloween’s 2018 rebirth has been overwhelmingly well received by critics, and review bible Rotten Tomatoes synopsis says it ‘largely wipes the slate clean after decades of disappointing sequels, ignoring increasingly elaborate mythology in favour of basic – yet still effective – ingredients’.

The film promises to be the perfect film for horror fans looking for a fright ahead of this year’s Halloween day
