In addition to the expected tension and mayhem, this last trailer reveals some of the survivors from 1978’s Halloween. Not only is Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode leading the charge, but Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace and Nancy Stephens as Marion Chambers are on hand, along with newcomers Robert Longstreet as Lonnie Elam and Anthony Michael Hall as Tommy Doyle.
The film also stars Judy Greer as Laurie’s daughter Karen, Andi Matichak as her granddaughter Allyson and James Jude Courtney as Myers (with Nick Castle in a cameo role).
Halloween Kills, as explained by Curtis, was planned as the second part of a movie trilogy. “We got to see in the 2018 movie that Laurie had become the personification of trauma,” she said. “And what they’ve done with the second part was, ‘What happens when the rest of the people in that town get angry?’ That’s what this next movie is about–the town of Haddonfield, all of the people in the town who were victims of Michael Myers. They are going to take the law into their own hands.”
The R-rated film–directed by David Gordon Green from a screenplay he wrote with Scott Teems and Danny McBride–picks up immediately after the fiery finale of 2018’s Halloween, as Laurie Strode realizes it’s now time to finish this long battle once and for all.
