Halloween Kills Gets New Trailer At BlumFest

Finally, we have seen some footage from the next Halloween movie. Laurie Strode is back and she wants to kill Michael Myers.


While we won't get to see the next Halloween movie, Halloween Kills, for a year thanks to delays related to the COVID-19 pandemic, horror studio Blumhouse has released a look at the upcoming film that will see Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) battling Michael Myers (James Hude Courtney and Nick Castle) once again. At the first-ever BlumFest virtual event, new footage from the movie was revealed.

"Next Halloween, when the sun sets and someone is alone, he kills," Laurie can be heard saying as Michael picks up his iconic mask. From there, what is shown is a series of quick shots of vicious murders at the hands of Michael, the Strode family gearing up for war against this masked menace, and a number of other characters being terrorized. You can take a look at the footage below.

When asked to describe the movie, director and co-writer David Gordon Green claimed, "The way we look at it is that our 2018 film was just the setup. So, with Halloween kills it's twice the thrills, it's 10 times the kills, it's ghosts from the past and skeletons in the closet, and all the allure of Halloween amplified. So I'm really excited. I look at it like it's our Empire Strikes Back." Referring to the second Star Wars film certainly makes it sound like Halloween Kills is going to end with a victory for evil--Michael Myers himself. That said, this is just the second film in a new trilogy of Halloween movies, with Halloween Ends arriving in October 2022.

In addition to Curtis and the actors portraying Myers, Halloween Kills will also see the returns of Judy Greer as Laurie's daughter Karen and Andi Matichak as her granddaughter Allyson. New additions include Anthony Michael Hall, who will take on the role of Tommy Doyle--the little boy Laurie was babysitting in the original 1978 film. In that movie, Tommy was played by Brian Andrews. The other kid Laurie was babysitting, Lindsey Wallace, will also appear in the film. However, that role will once again be played by Kyle Richards, who originated the character in the first film.

Halloween Kills will arrive in theaters on October 15, 2021. Halloween isn't the only franchise that saw a big announcement at BlumFest. It's also been revealed that a fifth Insidious movie is on the way.
