How To Watch Halloween Kills, The Next Installment In The Michael Myers Franchise

The sequel to 2018's Halloween hits Peacock and theaters on October 15.


Halloween Kills is the latest movie in the long-running horror series, and is set to hit Peacock and be in theaters on October 15. Originally set for release in October last year, the movie was one of many that was delayed due to the pandemic.

In Halloween Kills, according to the official synopsis: "An injured Laurie Strode inspires a vigilante mob to hunt down unstoppable killer Michael Myers and end his reign of terror once and for all." Peacock has not yet announced the release time for the movie.

While the wait has been a long one, the good news is there's another Halloween movie already on the way. Halloween Ends--like Halloween Kills--is directed by David Gordon Green, and is set to arrive on October 14, 2022. For more, check out GameSpot's guide to the biggest upcoming horror movies of 2021.

The movie stars Judy Greer as Karen and Andi Matichak as Allyson, with Michael played by both James Jude Courtney and original actor Nick Castle. It's directed by Green, who also helmed the 2018 Halloween, with a script by Green, Danny McBride, and Scott Teems, and a score by Carpenter.

Speaking of scores, you can check out our recent review roundup for Halloween Kills here. Critical consensus will of course change after the movie is out, but as of this writing, GameSpot sister site Metacritic has an aggregate score of 47 from 15 critic reviews.

In a recent interview, Green told GameSpot that working on the movie is "a fun playground… it's taking characters that have been established that have been around for 40 years to check in on them and invent what they're up to and how they've evolved."
