‘Halloween Kills’ Moves Back Into Iconic Myers House

David Gordon Green, director of the upcoming Halloween Kills, is going to the past for future frights.

Green this week confirmed on Twitter that the childhood home of Michael Myers will play a role in the next chapter of the Halloween franchise, as reported by movieweb.com.

The famous house did not appear in the previous film, but Halloween Kills–slated for release Oct. 16 of this year–will bring it back into focus.

The return of the Myers house in the Blumhouse movie was confirmed by both Green and producer Ryan Turek, who wrote in a Twitter post regarding Green’s tweet: “Yes, that was DGG (David Gordon Green) confirming the Myers house will return in Halloween Kills.”

As explained, the house is a key element in the Halloween mythos, not just as the site of John Carpenter’s original 1978 horror classic, but also where the young killer slew his sister Judith.

Plot details for the next film are scarce, so it’s still a bit of a mystery how the house will play into the scheme of things. What is known is what co-writer Scott Teems disclosed, calling the movie a “bigger, badder, meaner” version of earlier films, as reported here in Horror News Network.

Green added that work is ongoing on the film’s trailer, tweeting, “We’re still working on the trailer for ‘Halloween Kills’ now. And strategizing our plan for release, based on the realities of the world. Fingers crossed”.

In addition, the next (and perhaps final) Halloween entry–Halloween Ends–is still scheduled for an Oct. 15, 2021 release.
