‘Halloween Kills’: Director David Gordon Green Promises Aggressive, Action-Packed Sequel



'Halloween Kills': Sequel Director Promises Bloody Aggressive Film

This past Thursday afternoon, British film magazine Total Film exclusively revealed a brand new image (above) of James Jude Courtney as Michael Myers in Blumhouse’s upcoming horror sequel Halloween Kills. And today we bring you an interview with film’s director David Gordon Green, who teases some exciting things we can expect to see when the film slashes its way into theatres everywhere on October 15th.

Green had the following to say about the film in the new issue of Total Film magazine:

It’s one thing to be afraid of the Boogeyman,” he continues, “to have someone who might be in the closet, under the bed, creeping around your house… But we wanted to explore next was confusion, misinformation, and paranoia. What happens when fear goes viral? You can’t just stick your head under the covers any more.

According to Green, the bloody carnage will begin immediately:

When we made the last one we wanted to find a way for someone who’s never seen the original to get up to speed with the story,” he says. “But this one gets right to the action. It’s very aggressive. It’s more efficient. We wanted it to be an explosive middle before things get streamlined and personal again.

Green’s recent statement sounds very familiar to previous comments made by attendees who got to see an early cut of Halloween Kills last February, many of which claimed that the film dishes out a ton of emotion and is ultra brutal. And with the arrival of the latest promotional image this week, we can see there is some truth to those statements as Michael Myers’ mask and coveralls appear to be in a bit of a bloody mess.

The film stars Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, Nancy Stephens as Nurse Marion Chambers, Charles Cyphers as Leigh Brackett, Anthony Michael Hall as Tommy Doyle, Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace, Jibrail Nantambu as Julian, Robert Longstreet as Lonnie Elam, Nick Castle and James Jude Courtney are returning to play the role of Michael Myers.

The film is set to slash up theaters worldwide on October 15th, 2021.
