John Carpenter Calls ‘Halloween Kills’ A “Slasher Movie Times One Hundred”, Teaser Trailer Is Unveiled

John Carpenter still is contributing mightily to the Halloween franchise even after all these years. The legendary composer and filmmaker, in a recent interview, revealed that his score for Halloween Kills is ready for a waiting world.

Carpenter said his work on the movie has been wrapped up. “The cut is done. They’ll mix it in New York in the next week or so. Then it will be in the can. My work is done,” the prolific composer and filmmaker said.

He also had nothing but good things to say about the horror elements in the next film in the Halloween franchise. “The movie is something else,” he gushed. “It’s fun, intense and brutal, a slasher movie times one hundred, big time. It’s huge. I’ve never seen anything like this: the kill count!”

High praise, indeed, coming from the franchise creator.

Scott Teems–one of the co-writers of Halloween Kills, along with director David Gordon Green and Dan McBride–echoed those sentiments. Teems said the film “really is the bigger, badder, meaner version of the first one.”

A teaser trailer seen below will give fans a sneak peek at the next Halloween film.
