‘Halloween Kills’ to World Premiere at Venice Film Festival; Jamie Lee Curtis to Receive Golden Lion Lifetime Achievement Award



'Halloween Kills' to World Premiere at Venice Film Festival; Jamie Lee Curtis to Receive Golden Lion Lifetime Achievement Award

We just received official word from the VIFF event organisers this morning that Blumhouse Productions and director David Gordon Green‘s upcoming slasher sequel Halloween Kills will make its world premiere at the 78th Venice International Film Festival taking place between September 1st-11th on the Lido. At the same event, actress Jamie Lee Curtis will receive a Golden Lion Lifetime Achievement Award on September 8th at the Sala Grande.

In a statement via Deadline, Curtis spoke of the Lifetime Achievement:

I am incredibly humbled to be honored in this way by the Venice International Film Festival. It seems impossible to me that I’ve been in this industry long enough to be receiving ‘Lifetime Achievement’ recognition, and to have it happen now, with Halloween Kills, is particularly meaningful to me. Halloween — and my partnership with Laurie Strode — launched and sustained my career, and to have these films evolve into a new franchise that is beloved by audiences around the world was, and remains, a gift. Italian Cinema has always honored and heralded the genre that gave me my career, so I couldn’t be more proud and happy to accept this award from the Venice International Film Festival on behalf of Laurie and all the courageous heroines of the world who stand tall in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles and refuse to yield.

You can check out the official trailer below, along with a newly released poster and synopsis.


And the Halloween night when Michael Myers returned isn’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 Laurie’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 Laurie’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 Michael’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.

The film stars Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, Nancy Stephens as Nurse Marion Chambers, Charles Cyphers as Leigh Brackett, Anthony Michael Hall as the adult Tommy Doyle, Kyle Richards as the adult Lindsey Wallace, Robert Longstreet as the adult Lonnie Elam.
