Original Halloween actor Robert Longstreet will be returning as a grown-up Lonnie Elam in Blumhouse and director David Gordon Green’s Halloween Kills. And today the actor teased the new film has some “terrifying scenes in it” and it just might be the “nastiest” of them all.
Specifically, Elam said during a recent interview with Bloody Flicks: “I don’t think I can say anything about Halloween Kills except it might be the nastiest of all of them. It has some terrifying scenes in it.”
He then goes on to speak about what we can expect from his role in the new film, saying: “Lonnie is a complicated, troubled guy who is haunted by his past. Particularly chickening out on going into Michael Myers’ house when he was a kid. I think this broke something in him that fucks with his manhood. The Elam family is very unorthodox. They love drugs and alcohol more than most. David said a funny thing to me about that. He said ‘Lonnie knows his wines.’ Ha!!! I don’t think I’m a very appropriate father but I love my son. The stories of mushrooms with Ray continue.”
Finally, he adds: “The best part of Halloween Kills .. was sitting in a makeup trailer next to Michael Myers. That is a full-circle moment that had my inner teenager doing backflips. I got to inhabit my childhood nightmares and become a small part of the mythologies I idolized so long ago and still to this day. What a gift. It’s hard for me to get my mind around it. I’m just grateful as hell.”
Halloween Kills is directed by David Gordon Green and produced by Jason Blum, Malek Akkad, and Bill Block. David Gordon Green wrote the script with Danny McBride and Scott Teems.
