Image From ‘Halloween Kills’ Is Classic Michael Myers

Everyone knows there are no rules in a knife fight–and Michael Myers likes it that way.

The next chapter in the iconic Halloween franchise–Halloween Kills–will finally hit theaters Oct. 15, and the latest sneak peek at this installment was unveiled this week by Empire Magazine, as reported by The pulse-pounding photo of a bloody knife-wielding Myers can be seen below.

The seemingly indestructible slasher wears a charred mask–no doubt a souvenir from his escape from that burning basement (where we saw him last)–but he seems to be none the worse for his harrowing experience. And he’s definitely up to his old, deadly tricks.

And those tricks are brought to us, this time around, by director David Gordon Green–who also wrote the screenplay with Scott Teems and Danny McBride. The film stars Halloween veterans Jamie Lee Curtis (of course), Nick Castle, Kyle Richards, Nancy Stephens and Charles Cyphers, along with newcomers Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Robert Longstreet, Dylan Arnold and Omar Dorsey.

Green said the R-rated film is “about the creation of fear. We wanted to explore confusion, misinformation and paranoia. What happens when fear goes viral? You can’t just stick your head under the covers anymore.”

Teems added that Halloween Kills is like 2018’s Halloween “on steroids–the bigger, badder, meaner version.”

Halloween Kills–the 12th entry in the enduring franchise–will be followed by (reportedly) the final movie in the series–Halloween Ends–on Oct. 14, 2022.
