We’ve got a treat for fans of David Gordon Green‘s Halloween, a brand new image from the sequel Halloween Kills, which Green has promised will have “twice the thrills and ten times the kills” of 2018’s Halloween.
In the image shared by Total Film, Michael Myers looks like has sustained a bit of damage during his battle with Laurie in the 2018 movie, but that won’t stop him from dropping more bodies while hunting her down.
Gordon Green recently Total Film, who shared the image in their latest issue, “It’s one thing to be afraid of the Bogey Man, to have someone who might be in the closet, under the bed, creeping around your house. But what we wanted to explore next was confusion, misinformation, and paranoia. What happens when fear goes viral? You can’t just stick your head under the covers anymore.”
Green continued, “When we made the last one we wanted to find a way for someone who’s never seen the original to get up to speed with the story, but this one 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.”
Stars of Halloween 2018 Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, and Robert Longstreet will be returning along with Anthony Michael Hall as Tommy Doyle, Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace, and Nancy Stephens as Nurse Marion Chambers. Original Halloween (1978) actor Charles Cyphers joins the cast to reprise his role as Sheriff Leigh Brackett.
David Gordon Green penned the script along with Danny McBride and Scott Teems.
Halloween Kills is currently set to slash its way into theaters on October 15, 2021.
