Universal Pictures and Blumhouse have released the final trailer for Halloween Kills, the coming sequel to 2018’s Halloween. Halloween Kills hits theaters on October 15th to be followed 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.”
The synopsis reads:
In 2018, David Gordon Green’s Halloween, starring icon Jamie Lee Curtis, killed at the box office, earning more than $250 million worldwide, becoming the highest-grossing chapter in the four-decade franchise and setting a new record for the biggest opening weekend in history for a horror film starring a woman. And the Halloween night when Michael Myers returned isn’t over yet.
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. Evil dies tonight.
“Halloween Kills” is the sequel to David Gordon 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.
Halloween Kills is written by Scott Teems (SundanceTV’s Rectify) and Danny McBride and David Gordon Green based on characters created by John Carpenter and Debra Hill. The film is directed by David Gordon Green and produced by Malek Akkad, Jason Blum and Bill Block. The executive producers are John Carpenter, Jamie Lee Curtis, Danny McBride, David Gordon Green and Ryan Freimann.
