If you thought the eleventh film (and revival of) the Halloween franchise was the end all and be all, you were wrong. Serial killer Michael Myers (James Jude Courtney) is set to return in yet another thrilling movie, dropping on October 15th, 2021 in the UK.
Director of the 2018 Halloween motion picture, David Gordon Green, will be sitting in the director’s chair once again and is very excited to bring back one of cinema’s most terrifying and recognisable villains for another frightening story.
It won’t be just the one story, though. The 2018 instalment was such a success that Blumhouse has given the green light for a trilogy, continuing after Halloween (2018) with the second instalment; Halloween Kills.
Michael has been haunting Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis) since the very first film all the way back in 1978, and it seems he won’t be stopping soon. In the 2018 movie we see that Laurie is still suffering from Michael’s actions, 40 years later.
The 2018 film is a direct sequel to the 1978 masterpiece, so seeing Laurie’s anxiety and stress regarding her ordeal is significant in 2018’s Halloween as four decades of paranoia is built up inside her.
Green has stated that the movie will pick up where the last one left off; Laurie, along with daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) are seen being driven away from their shared ordeal with Michael by a kind stranger.
All three women are intensely traumatised and rightly so, but the question on every fan’s mind is; how did Michael survive being trapped in Laurie’s basement as the house was engulfed by flames?
Here’s hoping we will get our answer once the new films hits cinemas!
Not only is Laurie making a comeback, but it appears that many of the survivors from the 1978 horror will return too in order to join Laurie and stand up against Michael and his murderous ways –we can’t wait!
Joining Curtis will be Nancy Stephens, Charles Cyphers and Kyle Richards, who will all be settling back into their role’s from John Carpenter’s Halloween in 1978.
Furthermore, Anthony Michael Hall and Robert Longstreet will play the adult versions of Tommy Doyle and Lonnie Elam, also from the 1978 movie.
Halloween Kills seems to be a battle to look forward to, with the victims of the prolific killer’s murderous rampage taking a stand. It is definitely a film to keep your eye on, especially when you know that this is the continuation of a chilling trilogy.
Halloween Kills is currently expected to hit cinemas in the UK on October 15th, 2021. This may subject to change, however, due to the current global pandemic.
