You can kill a man. But can you kill the “essence of evil?” The people of Haddonfield are going to try in Halloween Kills, director David Gordon Green’s sequel to his 2018 revival of the franchise. But as the first full trailer for the film shows, it won’t be easy stopping Michael Myers. Even if everyone finally believes in Laurie Strode’s boogeyman. Because with each murder he grows more invincible.
And he’s about to murder a whole lot of people.
Taking place on the same night as the last film, Halloween Kills reveals Michael Myers survived his fiery tomb. He’s the only one though. Once freed from the burning home he begins to cut a bloody path through the town. That will finally (FINALLY!) unite everyone against him. Whether they’ll be successful is less of a guarantee.
From the film’s official synopsis:
“Minutes after Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), her daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) left masked monster Michael Myers caged and burning in Laurie’s basement, Laurie is rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, believing she finally killed her lifelong tormentor. But when Michael manages to free himself from Laurie’s trap, his ritual bloodbath resumes. As Laurie fights her pain and prepares to defend herself against him, she inspires all of Haddonfield to rise up against their unstoppable monster.”
Setting the movie on the same night as the last film could make this the most action-packed Halloween installment ever. Michael will get to “work” right away. And everyone else is already in a frenzied state. There won’t be much need to build to the terror. Laurie also won’t have decades worth of time to plan though. This will be a fight to the death. Whose death? The people of Haddonfield better hope “evil dies tonight.”
Halloween Kills also stars Will Patton, Thomas Mann, and Anthony Michael Hall. It makes its fiery debut in theaters October 15. Just in time for you know what.
