Michael “Kills” Again in New Trailer for “Halloween” Sequel

Though initially said to be a one-off direct sequel to John Carpenter's 1978 classic, David Gordon Green's Halloween invigorated audiences of the franchise, offering the quality follow-up they had long been denied. The mainstream success, and Jamie Lee Curtis' involvement, lead to the announcement of two more sequels, a planned trilogy that would complete the saga for good.

Delayed by COVID-19, Halloween Kills, the first of the two new films, is set to invade theaters later this year. The film's new trailer, its first in months, offers a look at life after Michael, or so we all thought.

Picking up moments after Halloween's epic conclusion, we watch as Michael rises from the literal ashes and makes a beeline towards his childhood home, leaving a slew of bodies in his wake. The deaths appear violent and gruesome as the knife-wielding Myers takes no prisoners, waging war on his hometown as a handful of survivors prepare to fight the evil that refuses to die.

Laurie's granddaughter, Allyson (Andi Matichak), appears to have a more significant role in this film, an assumed mark as the franchise possibly looks to pivot away from Curtis' Strode to a younger lead protagonist.

Co-starring Judy Greer, Will Patton, Frank Hawkins, Thomas Mann, and Anthony Michael Hall, Halloween Kills knives it's way into theaters on October 15.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
