Originally scheduled for an October 2020 release, this next installment in John Carpenter and Debra Hill’s original blockbuster horror franchise is the direct sequel to 2018’s Halloween, a pretty good third (or fourth or fifth) effort to reboot the series and the highest grossing movie (but not the grossest) in the franchise, which we reviewed here at borg. The delay for Halloween Kills necessitates the delay to October 2022 for the 13th and “final” film in the series, Halloween Ends. The odds that will really be the last Halloween? Probably something like 3,720 to one, but this next film seems like it’s likely Jamie Lee Curtis’s last turn as Laurie Strode. Curtis, Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Nancy Stephens, Charles Cyphers, and Nick Castle as Michael Myers are back, joined by grown-up Kyle Richards, plus Anthony Michael Hall and Robert Longstreet.
It’s been a year since we saw the teaser for this movie here at borg. The new trailer telegraphs an even gorier slasher flick than the last. If you dare–here is a look at Halloween Kills:
Look for it in theaters October 15, 2021.
