Talk about a double-edged sword.
Unfortunately, Halloweens Kills has been delayed by a year… but the silver lining of this news is that we’ve had a fantastic first glimpse at the follow-up to David Gordon Green’s 2018 Halloween.
The iconic John Carpenter took to Twitter to reveal this news, with Halloween Kills just the latest in a long line of movies that have been pushed back due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Instead of arriving this October, Halloween Kills will now hit the silver screen on October 15, 2021.
I know you all have been looking forward to an update on the status of "Halloween Kills". Here it is: pic.twitter.com/EWivyipYgR— John Carpenter (@TheHorrorMaster) July 8, 2020
As for the brilliant first glimpse we mentioned, you can find that below – with Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode screaming in horror as the services rush to rescue Michael Myers from the basement of Strode’s burning home.
Previously, Halloween Kills was to be followed in 2021 by Halloween Ends. Now though, Halloween Ends has subsequently been bumped to October 14, 2022.
