The much delayed, highly anticipated, and weirdly titled “Halloween Kills” is finally set for its big screen release. This is the twelfth film in the “Halloween” franchise and a sequel to the 2018 reboot of sorts. It falls under the Blumhouse banner and sees the return of director David Gordon Green and of course Jamie Lee Curtis reprising her role as Laurie Strode. The newest trailer definitely sets the film’s tone and it looks to be fully embracing its slasher roots.
Green and his co-writers Danny McBride and Scott Teems pick things up right where the last movie left off. Gruesome killer Michael Myers is trapped in the basement of Laurie’s burning house. “Let it burn” she screams. Unfortunately for her (and everyone else in town), the Haddonfield fire department are quick and efficient responders. In doing their duty they let loose the murderous Michael to once again hack his way through town. Judging by the trailer fans of the franchise should be getting exactly what they’re itching for.
“Halloween Kills” hits theaters this October. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
