Blumhouse and David Gordon Green’s Halloween Kills is coming this year. And today Green teases that while that film will be explosive, aggressive, and efficient Halloween Ends gets streamlined and personal again.
Green tells Total Film: “[Halloween Kills] 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 [in Halloween Ends].”
Works for us!
The MPAA slapped Halloween Kills with an R-rating for strong bloody violence throughout, grisly images, language, and some drug use. Sounds good to us!
Curtis says: “The movie is about a mob. And so it’s very interesting because it takes on what happens when trauma infects an entire community. And we’re seeing it everywhere with the Black Lives Matter movement. We’re seeing it in action and Halloween Kills weirdly enough, dovetailed onto that, proceeded it, it was written before that occurred …it’s a seething group of people moving through the story as a big angry group, it’s really, really, really intense. It’s a masterpiece.”
Meanwhile, Halloween director John Carpenter claims: “It is the quintessential slasher film. It is so intense and it even stuns me how incredible it is.”
Halloween Kills 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.
Gordon Green directs Halloween Kills and Blum produces. Green wrote the script with Danny McBride and Scott Teems. Carpenter provides the score. It hits on October 15, 2021, with Halloween Ends following on October 14, 2022
