Halloween Kills has got its first official trailer. Thanks to John Carpenter’s famous Halloween, Michael Myers became a household name in the late 1970s. While the sequels did not get the same critical acclaim as the original, Blumhouse revived the brand in 2018 with David Gordon Green’s Halloween, which was set 40 years after the original. With the film’s critical and popular acclaim, Universal decided to make two sequels: Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends. watch the trailer below
The initial release date for Halloween Kills was October 2020, however, the Coronavirus epidemic prompted Universal to postpone the film by one whole year. Although October is rapidly approaching, just a few teaser videos and official photos for Halloween Kills have been published thus far. The first teaser indicated that the sequel will take place immediately after the first, revealing how Michael survived the fire at Laurie Strode’s house, while the second teaser included more of the characters from Halloween Kills. Horror lovers now have a better sense of what to expect in the coming months.
Universal has released the first official trailer for Halloween Kills. Michael kills a group of firefighters in the gruesome trailer before the entire town is on the search for him. Michael will be unmasked in the sequel, according to the trailer’s finale.
“It’s like the first one on steroids,” says Scott Teems, the film’s writer. This teaser suggests that the cast and crew are not exaggerating when they say Halloween Kills will be nasty. Michael pulverized a group of firemen in under two minutes, slashing a lady in the throat with a shattered lamp, and hanging a masked youngster from a swingset. Karen and Allyson (Laurie’s daughter and granddaughter) appear to play a greater involvement in fighting the boogeyman than they did in the previous film, where they mostly stayed out of Laurie’s struggle against Michael.
Many horror films, such as the Friday the 13th franchise, stress gore above a compelling plot, but Halloween Kills appears to strike a nice balance between the two. Michael’s trail of bodies runs directly back to his boyhood home, thus it’s apparent that the sequel will go into greater detail about Michael Myers’ past. Although most of the Halloween sequels deviated from Carpenter’s original concept, Green’s film managed to resurrect one of horror’s most famous figures. According to this first teaser, Green is gearing up to create yet another sequel that modernizes Michael Myers while keeping loyal to what made him frightening in the first place.
