It’s been a long wait for the highly anticipated horror film Halloween Kills. The movie was originally going to be released last year during October. Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, fans will now have to wait until October of this year to finally see the film. Luckily, we have seen a few clips of the film so far, and a new Halloween Kills image has been released which further shows off the film’s villain. As you can see, Michael Myers has taken on quite a bit of damage, and he’ll no doubt be on one of his biggest rampages yet in the new movie.
The image comes to us from Empire and shows Michael Myers escaping the fire at Laurie Strode‘s home – where he was left to die. But does he ever really die?
When speaking about the film to Empire, director David Gordon Green said:
“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.”
This image comes after we were given another image earlier in the month, that was shared by Total Film, and also included a statement from the film’s director David Gordon Green.
“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,” he continues. “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.”
These are some very exciting words about Halloween Kills, and the perfect statement to go along with the equally exciting new image. Hopefully October 2021 will be here before we know it.
Halloween Kills was directed by David Gordon Green who also helmed the 2018 film. He wrote the script alongside Danny McBride and Scott Teems.
The film features a cast that includes Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Charles Cyphers, Anthony Michael Hall, Kyle Richards, Nancy Stephens, Jibrail Nantambu, and Robert Longstreet. James Jude Courtney and Nick Castle both return as Michael Myers.
Audiences will not be able to see Halloween Kills until later this year, when the film is currently scheduled to hit theaters on October 15, 2021.
