Halloween Kills Release Date Status, Cast, Trailer, and News Everything We Know About!

David Gordon Green and Jason Blum’s Halloween 2018 was a surprise hit with everyone and made a lot of money as well. As a result, Universal and Blumhouse have decided to fund not one, but two sequels. October 15th saw the release of Halloween Kills, which proved to be a profitable venture for the studio.

While Halloween Ends isn’t out until 2016, we can’t wait to see what happens to Laurie Strode and Michael Myers in Haddonfield, Illinois after the cliffhanger ending of Kills.

Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode in Halloween Kills, the follow-up to the popular 2018 reboot.

Several “legacy characters” from 1978 original will join Laurie and Michael for a rather gory reunion in this year’s sequel, so it’s worth rewatching the Halloween movies in order.

Halloween Kills Release Date

On Friday, October 15th, 2021, Halloween Kills will be appropriately released in theatres.

Additionally, Peacock, an online streaming service in the United States, will be available in cinemas in the United Kingdom for 60 days.

The release date was originally scheduled for October 2020, but the coronavirus pandemic pushed it back by a year.

Of course, it makes sense that the release date of a Halloween film would be pushed back an entire year rather than just a few months, but the additional wait no doubt came as a disappointment to horror fans.

He tweeted a joint statement from the two of them, saying they were “heartbroken” and that they couldn’t believe the delay was necessary.

It was written in the form: “To be honest, if we go ahead with the October release date, we’ll have to face the fact that the movie will be seen in a less-than-ideal theatre environment.

“It was a difficult decision but we’ve decided to delay the movie’s theatrical release by one year.”

A year-long delay is a good thing, as producer Jason Blum has confirmed that this will be the only delay to the film no matter what the circumstances.

He told Forbes in an interview that: “When is the next Halloween costume party going to be? Our hands aren’t tied. Come what may, vaccine or no vaccine, Halloween Kills will be released in October of this year. It’s on its way.”

Halloween Kills Cast

Despite being disappointing, the news that a large number of characters from the franchise’s past would be returning to the big screen helped to lessen its impact.

Tommy Doyle (Brian Andrews), the child who appeared in the very first film from 1978, is set to return (now played by Anthony Michael Hall) in addition to a whole host of “legacy characters,” including Marion Chambers (Nancy Stephens), Lonnie (Brent Le Page), and Sheriff Leigh Brackett (Jamie Lee Curtis) (Charles Cypher).

Halloween Kills Trailer

In light of the film’s lengthy delay, we’ve been treated to teasers throughout the year, but the final, feature-length trailer was only released in September 2021. Although it’s fast-paced, there are several nods to the original 1978 film:

A 36-second teaser trailer was released just in time for Halloween in 2020 to make up for the film’s delay.

“Next Halloween, when the sun sets and no one is around, he kills,” says Curtis’s Lauri Strode in the teaser! with the poor Strode family once again seen fighting the masked assassin.

Carpenter had earlier posted on Twitter a teaser clip showing how Michael Myers might have escaped his predicament at the end of his last movie. Below, you can see it in action:

What is Halloween Kills About?

As a direct sequel to the 2018 Halloween film, David Gordon Green and Danny McBride have confirmed that the action will take place on the same night as that film, directly following the events at the film’s climax which seemed to show Laurie, her daughter, and granddaughter successfully trapping Michael Myers and killing him.

According to McBride’s comments to Empire: “It takes place on the same night as the previous film and continues where it left off. We see a lot of characters from the 1978 film that we didn’t get a chance to see before.

Finally, they’re ready to take down this madman once and for all.

While the previous film focused primarily on Laurie and her revenge, this one will take a more community-oriented approach, according to Green.

“More than anything, this is about the disintegration of society into disorder. Fright spreads like wildfire on social media “he informed Empire.

A few more tidbits about the film, including how much fake blood was used, will be revealed in October 2020, when Jamie Lee Curtis tells Variety. “As a result, the second film that we shot immediately follows the events of the first, much like Halloween II.

“Halloween II began immediately after Halloween I had ended. As a result, Michael stabbed me in the stomach. You can see us climbing into this truck that we’re sitting in at the end of the film in this first scene.

“Because you’re riding in the back of a truck and they’re following close behind, I uploaded this video to Instagram. But I’m supposed to be hemorrhaging, I’m supposed to be dripping with blood.

“Because of this, we had to rehydrate the blood. They also have a large bucket, similar to the one used for painting. Then I was like, ‘Give me my bucket,’ at the conclusion. What are you requesting? Because it was both warm and extremely cold at the same time. It was dubbed ‘the sauce’ by David. A few more drops of sauce would do the trick, he said.”

Halloween Kills Reviews

Critics have praised Halloween Kills for its performances and gory kills, but many felt that the film focused too much on referencing the 1978 original or setting up a sequel rather than being its film.

“Halloween” fans won’t be let down, according to TheWrap’s Asher Luberto, who called the film “a textbook Halloween movie,” and The Guardian’s Jonathan Romney, who called it “director David Gordon Green’s creditable stab at reanimating the title.”

“[I]t finds fantastic ways to tie into the canon events that played out on Halloween in 1978 but does so without repeating itself, and while also splicing in some well-implemented commentary that succeeds in heightening the story and the horror,” wrote Eric Eisenberg of the the Cinemablend in a particularly glowing review.

The film’s heavy nods to John Carpenter were met with mixed reviews, with Little White Lies writer Adam Woodward stating: “Where others have dared to challenge audience expectations for what a slasher can be – looking forward while still paying respect to their horror forebears – the Halloween series is stuck in 1978.”

For failing to advance any of the franchise’s narrative threads in favor of merely setting the stage for the upcoming sequel, Halloween Ends, the film was lambasted by critics “Halloween Kills has a Halloween vibe to it. As if nothing had changed, the game board is left exactly as it was in preparation for round 13.”

In addition to the fact that Halloween Kills may not be scary, Variety’s Owen Gleiberman argues that the film is “a mess— a slasher movie that’s rarely scary,” while The Hollywood Reporter’s David Rooney concludes: “This latest installment is like a latex ghoul mask so stretched and shapeless it no longer fits.”

Will ‘Halloween Ends’ Be Available To Stream Day & Date On Peacock?

No one knows for sure, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it premiered on Peacock the same day as it opened in theatres. Although Blum would prefer the final film to be theater-exclusive, nothing is set in stone because of the unpredictable nature of everything.

But because of how unpredictable COVID is, I didn’t want to take the risk of switching back to the old windows. A bad taste remained in my mouth because of the way Freaky was treated by me. “I don’t want to repeat that experience,” Blum said in an interview with Collider for Amazon Prime Video’s anthology series of TV films Welcome To The Blumhouse.

Did They Film ‘Halloween Kills’ & ‘Halloween Ends’ Back-To-Back?

Slasher sequels were originally planned to follow that pattern, but that didn’t work out. A back-to-back shooting schedule for Halloween Kills and its sequel would not have been feasible, according to Andi Matichak in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

Michael Myers actor James Jude Courtney revealed that filming is scheduled to begin in January, which would give the final film a shorter turnaround time than its predecessors.

Who Will Be In ‘Halloween Ends’?

Although nothing is official just yet, it’s almost certain that Jamie Lee Curtis and Andi Matichak will return as Laurie Strode and Allyson, respectively. Unfortunately for them, Michael Myers has killed most of the cast in the last two films, including, among others, Judy Greer’s Karen, Anthony Michael Hall’s Tommy Doyle, Dylan Arnold’s Cameron, and Robert Longstreet’s Lonnie.

Others from the previous film who may make a reappearance include Will Patton as Deputy Frank Hawkins and Omar Dorsey as Sheriff Barker, as well as Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace. If there are any newcomers, we’ll have to wait and see.


Several “legacy characters” from 1978 original will join Laurie and Michael for a rather gory reunion in this year’s sequel, so it’s worth rewatching the Halloween movies in order.
