Word started racing around Film Twitter on Thursday, June 24 that the new Halloween Kills trailer was attached to The Forever Purge. This lead to leaks from people who already saw that trailer and the teams at Universal Pictures and Blumhouse decided to release it ahead of schedule.
I’ve watched it a few times now, and it does NOT disappoint! I will say that it looks pretty spoiler heavy in terms of explaining how Michael Myers gets out of the house that’s burning down as we saw at the end of Halloween (2018) and we get shots of some brutal kills. We get glimpses of Kyle Richards and Nancy Stephens returning to their iconic roles as the town of Haddonfield comes together to take down Michael. We find Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode at Haddonfield Hospital, which bears resemblance to the plot of the original sequel from 1981. Fans will also spot some scary masks recalling Halloween III: The Season of the Witch, which didn’t actually feature Michael Myers. All will be revealed when Halloween Kills hits theaters October 15.
What say you Halloween fans? Excited? Scared? Disappointed? Let me know on social media!
Here’s the brand new trailer!
