I know you all have been looking forward to an update on the status of "Halloween Kills". Here it is: pic.twitter.com/EWivyipYgR— John Carpenter (@TheHorrorMaster) July 8, 2020
A brief trailer has been released, it follows on directly after the events of the previous film where Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), her daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) after an exhilarating showdown had managed to trap Myers in the house, setting it on fire to then flee, leaving the masked killer for dead. Interestingly in the teaser for Halloween Kills we see fire engines rushing past the fleeing family. It seems the reliability of the Fire Department has come back to haunt Laurie.
See below for the trailer and keep an eye out for updates.
