Fans might’ve had to wait an extra year for Halloween Kills to finally arrive, but it looks like the wait will be worth it. Especially if actress Andi Matichak is to be believed. Matichak plays Allyson, the granddaughter of Laurie Strode, and she insists that Michael Myers will be especially aggressive in the new movie Halloween Kills.
This is what she had to say specifically while speaking with Bloody-Disgusting:
“It is… a movie that I think fans will be very happy with. It’s big, and it’s bad, and it’s mean. And we see Michael… I think Laurie, Allyson, and Karen pissed him off a little bit, by locking him in the basement, because his retaliation is next level.”
It sounds like Halloween Kills is really going to up the ante. With the way the 2018 Halloween film escalated the storyline of its 1978 predecessor, it should be even more exciting to see how things move forward in 2021. Especially if Michael Myers really is this upset after the events of the 2018 movie. And, according to Andi Matichak, Halloween Kills will definitely be a movie worth seeing on the big screen. If such a thing is possible by the time of its release, of course. Here’s what she said:
“Ya know, of course, it’s a bummer, you want the movie to come out. Fans were really excited, we’re all excited to see the finished product. But at the end of the day, one of the beauties of horror movies is watching it with the horror community, and seeing it in a theater with the acoustics – and of course, you want to hear John Carpenter’s score, in a theater. It’s just different. And it carries a bigger punch. This movie in particular… it’s so big, chaotic, vicious, and awesome.”
“It deserves to be seen in a theater. And we weren’t able to do that last year. And that’s just the sad fact of it. And hopefully, we’re able to do it this year. And if we’re not, I’m sure it’ll be released VOD or however they do it, but it’ll be out this year for sure. If we have the potential of seeing the film together and all celebrating it properly and seeing it in the way it deserves to be seen, then it was the right move.”
Hopefully everything works out by the time of its release, and fans will be able to experience the film in theaters. If not, it looks like we’ll still finally be getting more Michael Myers this year when Halloween Kills finally arrives. So it’s definitely going to be a win/win situation.
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 next year, when the film is released on October 15, 2021.
