Halloween (2018)–or Halloween Returns–will have it’s 2 year anniversary in October, and is celebrating with the next installment in the Halloween film series.
40 years ago, the serial killer Michael Myers was shown to all audiences across the globe and has since become an icon, along with his revival, Laurie Strode. The 1977 masterpiece, Halloween, has spurred numerous sequels, books, toys, etc., but in 2018 the series was rebooted completely, leaving the original and new Halloween to be the only canonical film in the series. Movie-goers loved the newest installment rating it “fresh” on RottenTomatoes, and begging for a sequel. Well Blumhouse, producer of Halloween Returns, promised not one new movie, but two.
This year, Halloween Kills will be released in theaters, continuing the action-packed horror series. People have been crying for new footage and insight on the film, but only descriptions, stills, and a short clip of it have been released.
