Halloween Kills trailer arrives Simon Fitzjohn June 25, 2021 Editor's Choice, Latest News and Videos 624 As an avowed fan of the Halloween franchise and all things Michael Myers, I’ll happily admit I was one of those who lapped up the 2018 series restart. Sure, there were issues (some silly comedy moments and, as a huge fan of Halloween II, ditching that irked me) but overall it delivered pretty much everything I wanted. For that reason I have been eagerly awaiting Halloween Kills – even more so having seen it delayed by the pandemic. Well, the first real trailer has arrived – and it looks great… And here’s some more info for you… In 2018, David Gordon Greenâ€™s Halloween, starring icon Jamie Lee Curtis, killed at the box office, earning more than $250 million worldwide, becoming the highest-grossing chapter in the four-decade franchise and setting a new record for the biggest opening weekend in history for a horror film starring a woman. And the Halloween night when Michael Myers returned isnâ€™t over yet. Minutes after Laurie Strode (Curtis), her daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) left masked monster Michael Myers caged and burning in Laurieâ€™s basement, Laurie is rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, believing she finally killed her lifelong tormentor. But when Michael manages to free himself from Laurieâ€™s trap, his ritual bloodbath resumes. As Laurie fights her pain and prepares to defend herself against him, she inspires all of Haddonfield to rise up against their unstoppable monster. The Strode women join a group of other survivors of Michaelâ€™s first rampage who decide to take matters into their own hands, forming a vigilante mob that sets out to hunt Michael down, once and for all. Evil dies tonight.
