Halloween Kills Trailer is out! This film was originally going to be in theaters last year but the pandemic puts it on delay. Now the wait is over!
Whether we’ll beat down the COVID-19 virus by this time next year is anybody’s guess, but there’s one deadly enemy we’ll apparently always have around: Michael Myers. He was ready to start his slashing spree anew this Halloween, but the state of theaters in this country right now delayed that visit by an entire year, so…he and his machete have gotta wait. (He’ll be fine…he’s got a mask on.)
Is it too early to start thinking about Halloween….2021? That may be the time kids can actually start safely trick-or-treating again, but it will also be the month Universal releases Halloween Kills, the second movie of the planned “Laurie Strode as a senior citizen badass” trilogy.
The Halloween franchise has been through more sequels, reboots and retools than any other slasher series, but with 2018’s simply-titled Halloween, everything was ignored save for the first movie. In this version, Laurie Strode never encountered Michael Myers again (and they weren’t related either) but the trauma of the event drove her to bulk up and train, preparing for the day when he might one day escape prison and come for her again. They did meet once more, Laurie defeated him, and thus ended the Halloween story forever.
