Blumhouse’s Halloween Kills had its first test screening this past Thursday night for an audience of around 200 moviegoers. And today we have some non-spoiler details.
We can’t guarantee the following info via Dark Universe is 100% legitimate, so keep that in mind.
Here are a few talking points:
- The eerie blue lighting is back.
- One major character returns.
- Michael Myers is ultra-violent and brutal.
- The flashback scenes are incredibly well done.
- The movie is like Halloween on acid. It’s balls to the wall crazy.
- The movie has some great callbacks to past Halloween films but remains original.
- The mask used for the Halloween 78 flashback scenes is going to have fans going bonkers.
Also, a Dark Universe source said: “The flashback sequence (it’s beefy, but never overstays its welcome – about seven-ten minutes) genuinely impresses, adds to the original in a meaningful way while contextualizing its place in the H’18-Kills cannon. It’s surprisingly emotional.”
It stars Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, Judy Greer as Karen Nelson, Andi Matichak as Allyson Nelson, Anthony Michael Hall as Tommy Doyle, Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace, Dylan Arnold as Cameron Elam, Robert Longstreet as Lonnie Elam, Charles Cyphers as Leigh Brackett, Nancy Stephens as Marion Chambers, and James Jude Courtney / Nick Castle as Michael Myers.
