October is right around the corner–and that means Halloween Kills is frighteningly close.
The next entry in the classic Halloween franchise finally lands in theaters (and on Peacock) Oct. 15–after a too-long delay due to the pandemic–and a short teaser clip was dropped this week to remind horror fans that more bloody mayhem is just one month away now, as reported by comicbook.com. Check out the tweet and clip on this page.

Halloween Kills held its premiere at the Venice International Film Festival last week to mixed reviews, but that did little to dampen the enthusiasm of longtime franchise fans. Michael Myers is back and Laurie Strode is determined to send him to Hell, and that is enough.
The R-rated film–directed by David Gordon Green from a screenplay he wrote with Scott Teems and Danny McBride–continues the nightmare recounted in 2018’s Halloween, as Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis) rallies the terrified residents of Haddonfield to stop Michael Myers one last time.
Halloween Kills also stars Judy Greer as Laurie’s daughter Karen, Andi Matichak as her granddaughter Allyson and James Jude Courtney (with a cameo by Nick Castle) as the masked monster. Courtney, by the way, will be one of the guests of honor at Connecticut HorrorFest–an annual event sponsored by Horror News Network–that will be held this Saturday, Sept. 18 at the Naugatuck Event Center.
