Could this be the end of one of the longest running horror franchises in history? With so many cliffhangers, twists and rewrites, can’t be sure. At the very least, we have a final Halloween Kills trailer this week and it’s all the hype with Jamie Lee Curtis’s Laurie Strode as one of the interconnecting threads to the original movie now looking to bring things full circle with one final confrontation.
In 2018, David Gordon Green’s Halloween, starring icon Jamie Lee Curtis, killed at the box office, earning more than $250 million worldwide, becoming the highest-grossing chapter in the four-decade franchise and setting a new record for the biggest opening weekend in history for a horror film starring a woman.
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.
I swear to god.. I know movies can be weird and horror in general can be…well…. weird… but if Laurie pulls off that mask and it’s a Laurie clone, I am gonna flip shit.
Halloween Kills rolls out exclusively on Peacock and in theaters on April 15.
