The reigning Scream Queen is ready for her next encore.
Halloween Kills–the latest bloody chapter in one of the truly classic horror franchises of all time–is mere months away. And a terrifying preview is now here.
The much-anticipated Universal Pictures film–the penultimate entry in the iconic Halloween franchise–will hit theaters Oct. 15 but understandably impatient fans can check out the graphic trailer on this page for a peek into the full-blown mayhem to come.
The R-rated Halloween Kills–from director David Gordon Green, who also wrote the screenplay with Scott Teems and Danny McBride–picks up where 2018’s Halloween left us all. And, according to the official synopsis, “the Halloween night when Michael Myers returned isn’t over yet.”
Minutes after Laurie Strode, her daughter Karen and her granddaughter Allyson left Myers “caged and burning in Laurie’s basement, Laurie is rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.” But, when Myers frees himself from Laurie’s trap, “his ritual bloodbath resumes.”
Meanwhile, Laurie inspires all of Haddonfield “to rise up against their unstoppable monster. The Strode women decide to take matters into their own hands, forming a vigilante mob that sets to hunt Michael down–once and for all.” As Laurie puts it, “Evil dies tonight.”
The cast includes Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace, Nancy Stephens as Nurse Marion, Charles Cyphers as former sheriff Leigh Brackett, Anthony Michael Hall as Tommy Doyle, Robert Longstreet as Lonnie Elam, Will Patton as Deputy Frank Hawkins, Jibrail Nantambu as Julian Morrise, Omar Dorsey as Sheriff Barker, Judy Greer as Laurie’s daughter Karen and Andi Matichak as Laurie’s granddaughter Allyson. Michael Myers is again played by Nick Castle, ably assisted by stunt double James Jude Courtney.
John Carpenter, creator of the legendary 1978 Halloween, called this new film “the quintessential slasher film. It is so intense. It even stuns me how incredible it is. David just did a great job.”
