Other films play, Halloween Kills!
If you get the above musical reference, we are now friends and I adore you.
As a lifelong Halloween fanatic let alone a horror fan in general, this is some devastating news. As if 2020 could not get any worse, it was announced in a joint statement from director David Gordon Green and the legend himself John Carpenter on twitter, that Halloween Kills, the sequel to 2018’s Halloween would be getting pushed back from October 16th, 2020 to October 15th, 2021 and will also be getting a proper IMAX release as well. You may notice that this new release date had previously been reserved for the final film in the new Green/Carpenter Halloween trilogy, Halloween Ends. The final installment has also been pushed to October 14, 2022. Leave it to stupid COVID-19 to kill this Halloween fans excitement!
The biggest silver lining to this announcement was that it was accompanied by the first trailer for the film which you can watch below.
Created as a direct sequel to the 1978 Carpenter classic which in effect canceled every sub-par franchise installment that followed (II, III, VI & H2O aside), Halloween (2018) featured Jamie Lee Curtis in her return to career launching iconic role of Laurie Strode who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers (Nick Castle & James Jude Courtney), “the shape” who has haunted her to the point of a major case of PTSD and paranoia since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades prior.
Halloween Kills featured returning actors Jamie Lee Curtis once again reprising her role as Laurie Strode, Judy Greer as Laurie’s daughter, Karen, and Andi Matichak as Laurie’s granddaughter, Allyson. The film also marks the return of some classic characters from the original Halloween such as Charles Cyphers as Sheriff Brackett and Nancy Stephens as Marion Chambers while the roles of Tommy Doyle and Lindsey Wallace the two children Laurie babysat on that fateful Halloween night 40 years ago) will be played by Anthony Michael Hall and Kyle Richards.
