This year will finally see the release of Halloween Kills, the exciting sequel to the 2018 film Halloween and its 1978 predecessor. Although the anticipated horror sequel is still quite a few months away, one of the producers has recently shared a new behind the scenes image. While it doesn’t reveal much, it does guarantee the return of a familiar object from the original Halloween that will be used in Halloween Kills. As you can see for yourself below, it’s actually the very familiar Smith’s Grove station wagon.
Here’s what producer Ryan Freimann wrote for the caption along with the image of the iconic vehicle:

Any fan of the original Halloween should recognize the return of this object in Halloween Kills. After all, the Smith’s Grove station wagon was the vehicle Michael Myers chose to drive in the original movie. He stole the vehicle after escaping from the Smith’s Grove sanitarium, and forever started the iconic debate as to how Michael Myers even learned to drive. This seems to indicate that Halloween Kills will indeed have some interesting flashbacks set around the time frame of the 1978 Halloween – so it only makes sense that the station wagon should make an appearance. Of course, will Michael Myers have another chance to drive it like in the original film? We’ll likely just have to wait until this October to find out.
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.
