As the latest entry in the Halloween franchise, appropriately titled Halloween Kills, continues shooting, fans have been eager for any potential news. Now in a frenzy for more information, one fan has dug up some fascinating revelations for the new Halloween sequel. It turns out the movie will actually utilize the Haddonfield Memorial Hospital as a location.
The Haddonfield Memorial Hospital is of course best remembered as the setting for the original Halloween II. The now-retconned sequel took place almost entirely at the hospital, following Laurie Strode as she was immediately taken to the hospital after the events of the first film.
Obviously these events which took place in Halloween II have since been erased from continuity, but that doesn’t seem to stop the filmmakers from still making references to them. While the events of Halloween II are no longer relevant, it looks like this new movie will still acknowledge the iconic Haddonfield Memorial Hospital and its place in Haddonfield, Illinois.
The new sequel Halloween Kills still has yet to receive any official plot synopsis, but we do know Jamie Lee Curtis will once again return as Laurie Strode as does James Jude Courtney as Michael Myers. Actor Nick Castle who portrayed Michael Myers in the original 1978 Halloween and also in a cameo role for the 2018 film will make another exciting appearance as Michael Myers.
Let’s hope that the inclusion of Haddonfield Memorial Hospital will be truly beneficial to the movie, and not just an easy way to manipulate other fans’ nostalgia.
Halloween Kills will bring slasher villain Michael Myers back for another round of terror in theaters on October 16, 2020.
