When David Gordon Green’s Halloween was released back in 2018, starring icon Jamie Lee Curtis, we were of course excited, but a little apprehensive. What would it be like to return to the classic horror franchise 40 years after the original was released?
We needn’t have worried. Halloween was a smash hit earning more than $250 million worldwide, and more importantly, we loved it!
Now, the filmmaking team behind the 2018 hit is back with Halloween Kills and here is the new trailer…
Minutes after Laurie Strode (Curtis), her daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) left masked monster Michael Myers caged and burning in Laurie’s basement, Laurie is rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, believing she finally killed her lifelong tormentor.
But when Michael manages to free himself from Laurie’s trap, his ritual bloodbath resumes. As Laurie fights her pain and prepares to defend herself against him, she inspires all of Haddonfield to rise up against their unstoppable monster.
The Strode women join a group of other survivors of Michael’s first rampage who decide to take matters into their own hands, forming a vigilante mob that sets out to hunt Michael down, once and for all.
Evil dies tonight.
Directed again by David Gordon Green, Halloween Kills is written by Scott Teems (SundanceTV’s Rectify), Danny McBride and David Gordon Green based on characters created by John Carpenter and Debra Hill. The film stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Will Patton, Thomas Mann and Anthony Michael Hall.
Halloween Kills will be out in cinemas on 15 October.
