AceShowbiz - The terror of serial killer Michael Myers is revived in "Halloween Kills". After being delayed from its 2020 release, the new movie is finally coming this year and is previewed in the first official full trailer.
Courtesy of Universal Pictures, the trailer as well as the movie pick up where the last film, "Halloween (2018)", left off, with the house of Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) being engulfed in flame with Michael Myers inside. Much to their horror, a group of firemen comes to the rescue and saves Michael, who in turns massacres the entire squad.
Initially relieved that "it's over," Laurie won't stay still after learning that Michael is still alive. Against her daughter Karen's (Judy Greer) advice, she leaves the hospital bed to stop the masked figure from killing more innocent people.
The trailer sees Michael already going on a killing spree. While it seems that he chooses his victims randomly, the video hints that he is heading to his childhood home. With the Haddonfield community uniting to hunt down the serial killer, Laurie declares, "Evil dies tonight."
The video also vaguely addresses how Michael somehow becomes more dangerous after surviving the fire. "Michael Myers is flesh and blood. But a man could've not survived that fire," Laurie says. She warns in another part of the trailer, "The more he kills, the more he transcends."
Andi Matichak returns as Laurie's granddaughter Allyson, with Will Patton starring as Deputy Frank Hawkins, and Anthony Michael Hall portraying Tommy Doyle (who was previously portrayed by Brian Andrews in the original 1978 film.) Additionally, Nancy Stephens returns to reprise her role as Marion Chambers.
"Halloween Kills", due out in the U.S. on October 15, is directed by David Gordon Green and written by Green alongside Danny McBride and Scott Teems. The three are also writing the direct sequel, "Halloween Ends", which is scheduled to be release on October 14, 2022.
