Halloween Kills

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, a variety of movies pushed back their release dates. One of these movies was the highly anticipated sequel to the 2018 horror film, Halloween

David Gordon Green’s Halloween Kills was to release in October 2020 but was pushed back an entire year to October 2021. As anticipation increases among fans, the movie has teased audiences with images and hints as to what the movie’s plot entails. 

Green commented on the movie’s basis by stating: “This film is about community fear, paranoia, misinformation and crowd panic. This movie is a great popcorn genre movie and not really any kind of statement, but it’s strange how things line up. It couldn’t be a more interesting time to release a movie like this.”

The film’s release in the context of the coronavirus pandemic, coupled with its inspiration from the 1987 original, has horror fans excited for its release. Until its release, however, you can check out the teaser here: https://youtu.be/Q6usYdOGK7w
