After missing out on 2020’s Halloween festivities due to the global health crisis, Michael Myers is set to make his return this year with Halloween Kills, and thanks to Total Film we have a new image from the sequel to the 2018 reboot which features the iconic masked killer and his trademark kitchen knife…
“It’s about the creation of fear,” said returning director David Gordon Green with regards to the upcoming sequel “It’s one thing to be afraid of the Bogey Man, to have someone who might be in the closet, under the bed, creeping around your house… But we wanted to explore next was confusion, misinformation, and paranoia. What happens when fear goes viral? You can’t just stick your head under the covers any more.”
“When we made the last one we wanted to find a way for someone who’s never seen the original to get up to speed with the story,” he continues. “But this one gets right to the action. It’s very aggressive. It’s more efficient. We wanted it to be an explosive middle before things get streamlined and personal again [in the next instalment Halloween Ends].”
Halloween Kills is directed by David Gordon Green from a script by Green and Danny McBride and sees Jamie Lee Curtis (Laurie Strode) Judy Greer (Karen), Andi Matichak (Allyson), Jibrail Nantambu (Julian), Kyle Richards (Lindsey Wallace), Nancy Stephens (Nurse Marion), Charles Cyphers (Sheriff Brackett) and Nick Castle and James Jude Courtney (The Shape) all reprising their roles, while new additions include Anthony Michael Hall (The Dead Zone) as Tommy Doyle, and Robert Longstreet (The Haunting of Hill House) as Lonnie Elam. The film is currently scheduled to release on October 15th, 2021.
