With Halloween coming up this weekend, Universal Pictures is celebrating with the release of a new teaser trailer for director David Gordon Green’s Halloween Kills. In the footage we see Michael Meyers back in action and continuing his brutal killing spree.
The trailer may be short, but it’s loaded with violence and intensity! I’m pretty excited about this movie! I just hate that we have to wait another year before we get to watch it!
The sequel takes place the same night, picking up where the last movie ended. The events in the sequel also bring together a lot of characters who were introduced in the 1978 film. It’s said that they gather “to try, once and for all, to take down Michael, to stop this madman.”
It’s also been explained thay the story centers around “a community that is united by outrage, and divided in how to deal with evil.” It’s also said to be more about the “unravelling of a community into chaos. It’s about how fear spreads virally.”
The last movie ended with Laurie Stroud, her daughter Karen, and granddaughter Allyson making their escape after they managed to trap and “kill” Michael Myers in a burning basement. We saw the aftermath of that in the teaser that was released as fire trucks were rushing to the fire to put it out. Laurie is seen yelling at the top of her lungs to “let it burn!”
Jamie Lee Curtis returns for the sequel and is joined by Judy Greer and Andi Matichak, who reprise their roles as Laurie’s daughter and granddaughter in the sequels. Michael Myers actors Nick Castle and James Jude Courtney will also come back to their shared role. The film also includes Kyle Richards returning as Lindsey Wallace; Anthony Michael Hall as Tommy Doyle, and Nancy Stephens who will reprise her role as Nurse Marion.
Halloween Kills will be released on October 15th, 2021 and Halloween Ends is coming on October 14th, 2022.
