Iconic scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis reprised her role as final girl Laurie Strode in 2018 with Halloween, a sequel to the 1978 slasher classic of the same name. While some of the mammoth franchise's sequels and remakes have failed to inspire, this return to Michael Myers got hearts pounding and audiences looking over their shoulders on the way out of the theater. The trailer for the next installment of the reboot, Halloween Kills, just dropped—and it promises to be more tense, more terrifying, and even bloodier than its predecessors.
The newest film appears to pick up right where the last one let off. As Laurie's home and the intricate trap she set up for her killer brother Michael go up in raging flames, the three generations of Strode women—complete with Laurie's daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and her granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak)—plead with the fire trucks speeding by to let the house burn. But as emergency services reach the towering blaze anyway, there's an evil entity at the pit of it who refuses to be consumed. Unseen by his family, Michael Myers pulls himself out of the flames to wreak havoc on anyone who stands in his way.
The trailer cuts to the Strode family in the hospital, where they bond as Laurie is out of commission to let her wounds heal. But their hard-won relief is shattered by the news that Michael is still alive, cutting a path of carnage along the trail to his childhood home. Laurie isn't going to wait for him to come for her again. The hunted has become the hunter, and this time, her entire family is by her side.
This highly-anticipated film was originally set to be released in October of 2020, but was pushed back due to the pandemic. Halloween Kills is now slated to hit theaters this year, on October 15th, 2021.
