Blumhouse, Universal Delay ‘Halloween Kills’, ‘Halloween Ends’, ‘Forever Purge’, ‘Candyman’ Out of COVID-19’s Path

The extended movie theater closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic have set off a chain of delays for top Blumhouse/Universal Pictures releases. Halloween Kills, Halloween Ends, and Forever Purge will all see delays of up to a year under the latest announcements.

Deadline reports that Halloween Kills has been delayed for an entire year, moving from October 15th, 2020 to October 16th, 2021. Unfortunately, 10/16/21 was originally supposed to be the release date for Halloween Ends, so Halloween Ends will now open a year later, on October 14th, 2022.

Forever Purge will also see a one-year delay due to coronavirus. The film was originally set to debut in theaters on July 10th, 2020, but now it will release on July 9th, 2021.

The upcoming Candyman reboot will also be delayed, but by a much shorter margin. The film will move from September 25th, 2020 to October 16th, 2020 (Halloween Kills’ original date).

Stay tuned to Horror News Network for complete coverage of this theatrical game of musical chairs as soon as it breaks!
