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.
Taking its cues from the original Halloween 2 (which takes place the same night as the first film), Kills picks up 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, well as we know there’s already one final sequel on the way next year with Halloween Ends, evil will be on the verge of dying tonight! If you had told me a few years ago that the people that made Pineapple Express and Kenny Powers (aka Danny McBride) would be the ones to bring Halloween back to life with OG final girl Jamie Lee Curtis, I would have actively laughed at you. It is a great thing to be proved utterly wrong. The first trailer for Halloween Kills is available below, and the movie lands in cinemas on October 15.
