Halloween Kills takes place minutes after the ending of the previous installment, 2018’s Halloween, where Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis), her daughter Karen (Judy Greer), and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) left burning Michael Myers caged in Laurie’s basement, thinking that they finally ended their years-long torture by the hands of the infamous serial killer. However, that wasn’t the case. 

When Myers makes another return, Laurie once again stands up to fight and inspires all of Haddonfield to do the same. The Strode women join a group of survivors from serial killings executed by Myers, and they set out to hunt him down, once and for all.

The cast also includes Will Patton (The Forever Purge), Thomas Mann (Kong: Skull Island), and Anthony Michael Hall (The Dark Knight). The slasher film, directed and written by David Gordon Green, is also written by Scott Teems and Danny McBride. Curtis also serves as an executive producer for the film alongside John Carpenter, McBride, Green, and Ryan Freimann.

Halloween Kills is scheduled for release in theaters on October 15, 2021, in the United States. This will be followed by Halloween Ends, a direct sequel, which will be out in October 2022. – with reports from Angelica Burlaza/Rappler.com
