Universal Pictures and Blumhouse have released the first official trailer for Halloween Kills, the coming sequel to 2018’s Halloween. Halloween Kills hits theaters on October 15th with another new finale for the series, scheduled to hit theaters on October 14, 2022.
In this installment, Michael Myers escapes death once more and begins his deadly spree. This time, however, the town, led by Laurie’s granddaughter (Andi Matichak), is ready to unite to stop him. What took them so long to figure out? Who knows what will happen. Jamie Lee Curtis will reprise her legendary role in the film, which will also include Judy Greer, Anthony Michael Hall, and Kyle Richards of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”
“Halloween Kills” is the sequel to Green’s 2018 “Halloween,” which opened to $76.2 million (the highest opening in the horror franchise’s history) and ended its run with $159 million in the U.S. and $255 million globally. Green directed his “Halloween” reboot on a $10 million budget, making the film hugely profitable for Universal. Most importantly, the film got critics and fans back on the franchise’s good side after a series of poorly received sequels.
Spoiler Warning: Yep, the trailer is soaked in spoilers.
The official “Halloween Kills” synopsis from Universal:
Minutes after Laurie Strode, her daughter Karen, and granddaughter Allyson 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.
