Halloween (2018) director David Gordon Green has now given confirmation that he is raising the stakes of both action and adventure in the upcoming sequel titled “Halloween Kills”
Based on a recent interview with Total Film, David Gordon Green brings his perspective on what the movie will be, preparing fans of the beloved horror franchise for a more action-packed story when compared to the previous film. With Halloween Kills, David Gordon Green seeks to ensure that the audience recognizes the in-depth emotions that lead to terror, saying: , “It’s one thing to be afraid of the Bogey Man…to have someone who might be in the closet, under the bed, creeping around your house… But [what] we wanted to explore next was confusion, misinformation, and paranoia. What happens when fear goes viral? You can’t just stick your head under the covers anymore.”
Similar to Halloween II (1981), Halloween Kills is going to pick up where the previous film, 2018’s Halloween left off. The previous film saw Michael Myers coming back to his hometown of Haddonfield, Illinois, but when he arrives, Myers is pursued by the Haddonfield Police all over town.
The first ever teaser for Halloween Kills features Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode, as well as her daughter, Karen Nelson and granddaughter Allyson Nelson driving away from the house that was set on fire during their face off with Michael Myers. The audience is drawn in via the suspenseful continuation of the plot. David Gordon Green goes on to say “When we made the last one we wanted to find a way for someone who’s never seen the original to get up to speed with the story. But this one gets right to the action. It’s very aggressive. It’s more efficient. We wanted it to be an explosive middle before things get streamlined and personal again.”
Halloween Kills is set-to-be released in theaters on Oct. 15th, 2021. You can see the trailer down below:
