Halloween Kills Will Hit Peacock The Same Day As Theaters

What's worse than Michael Myers finding you in the movie theater? Michael Myers finding you in your own home.


When Halloween Kills debuts next month, it won't just be in theaters. Universal has announced that the horror film will arrive on the Peacock streaming service the same day it is released theatrically (via The Hollywood Reporter).

Halloween Kills hits theaters on October 15, but if you subscribe to Peacock, you'll be able to watch it at home. Peacock does not rent movies like Amazon Prime or have anything like the Premier Access tier offered by Disney+. In other words, as long as you subscribe to Peacock, you'll be able to watch Halloween Kills immediately--more like Warner Bros.' HBO Max model, minus the slate-wide release plan. Halloween, the first movie in this new David Gordon Green-directed trilogy, is not yet on the service. NBC Universal has not yet announced whether or not that film will be showing up.

Halloween Kills was originally scheduled to hit theaters on October 16, 2020, but was ultimately delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic to its new release date. Halloween Kills stars Jamie Lee Curtis, once again in the role of series protagonist Laurie Strode, alongside Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Will Patton, and Anthony Michael Hall. Nick Castle returns as the masked murderer, credited as "The Shape."

Reviews for the mid-trilogy flick have started to roll out with mixed critical reception. The final film, Halloween Ends, hits on October 14, 2022.
