Universal has released an official trailer for Halloween Kills, the upcoming “third” instalment in the Halloween franchise that began with Halloween, and continued with Halloween. Let’s take a look.
Out of all the horror-slasher antagonists to emerge in the late ’70s and ’80s, I think Michael Myers is my favorite. Or, at the very least, I like his films the most. Granted, I’ve only seen three of them, but if I refuse to watch the rest of the sequels I leave this franchise untarnished.
Anyway, I enjoyed 2018’s Halloween more than most people, so I will gladly be going to see this film in October. Jamie Lee Curtis will always get my money and I will continue to support her in whatever project she boards. (Okay, maybe not the upcoming Borderlands adaptation because that looks like it will be terrible!)
In 2018, David Gordon Green’s Halloween, starring icon Jamie Lee Curtis, killed at the box office, earning more than $250 million worldwide, becoming the highest-grossing chapter in the four-decade franchise and setting a new record for the biggest opening weekend in history for a horror film starring a woman.
And the Halloween night when Michael Myers returned isn’t over yet.
Minutes after Laurie Strode (Curtis), her daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) left masked monster Michael Myers caged and burning in Laurie’s basement, Laurie is rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, believing she finally killed her lifelong tormentor.
But when Michael manages to free himself from Laurie’s trap, his ritual bloodbath resumes. As Laurie fights her pain and prepares to defend herself against him, she inspires all of Haddonfield to rise up against their unstoppable monster.
The Strode women join a group of other survivors of Michael’s first rampage who decide to take matters into their own hands, forming a vigilante mob that sets out to hunt Michael down, once and for all.
Evil dies tonight.
Halloween Kills hits theaters October 15, 2021.
