Take a look at the new footage from “Halloween Kills,” which sees Michael Myers’ reign of terror continue after his fateful encounter with Laurie Strode…
Sadly for horror fans, “Halloween Kills” — the sequel to 2018’s “Halloween” reboot — was delayed a full year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic but new footage was released on Friday as part of the Blumhouse Productions’ online “BlumFest 2020.”
The movie will land in theaters (hopefully) on Oct. 15, 2021 as the town of Haddonfield reacts to the news that Michael Myers returned home and left a trail of bodies in his wake.
The upcoming sequel will see much of the 2018 film return including Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode as well as Judy Greer playing her daughter Karen and Andi Matichak playing her granddaughter Allyson.
“Halloween Kills” will also bring back some familiar faces from the past as Kyle Richards will return to play Lindsey Wallace, the little girl Laurie Strode was babysitting when Michael Myers attacked them in 1978. Nancy Stephens will also return after playing nurse Marion Chambers in the original “Halloween” and then reprising that role in “Halloween II” and “Halloween: H20.”
Finally, Michael C. Hall will take over the role of Tommy Doyle, the young boy Laurie was babysitting that night in 1978 when the original “Halloween” took place.
Along with the new footage being released for “Halloween Kills,” director David Gordon Green teased what lies ahead in the upcoming sequel while setting the stage for a real bloodbath that will likely include more than a few surprises for the audience by the time the credits roll.
“The way we look at it, our 2018 film was just the set up,” Green said during BlumFest 2020. “So with ‘Halloween Kills’ it’s twice the thrills, it’s 10 times the kills. It’s ghosts from the pasts and skeletons in the closet. All the allure of ‘Halloween’ amplified. I look at it like it’s our ‘Empire Strikes Back.’”
That’s setting a very high bar for the sequel but Green obviously seems confident that this cast will deliver.
Check out the new footage from “Halloween Kills” and get ready for the debut of the film in October 2021.
