John Carpenter has teased that the upcoming Halloween Kills will definitely deliver on the slasher front.
The director, who has helmed iconic horror movies including the original Halloween in 1978 and 1995’s Village of the Damned, has composed the musical score for the sequel and he revealed to IndieWire that the film will be “intense and brutal”.
“The cut is done, he said. “They’ll mix it in New York in the next week or so. Then it will be in the can. My work is all done.”
“The movie is something else. It’s fun, intense and brutal, a slasher movie times one hundred, big time. It’s huge. I’ve never seen anything like this: the kill count!”
Halloween Kills follows up 2018’s Halloween, which reunited some of the original cast of the first Halloween movie including Jamie Lee Curtis and Nick Castle.
Halloween Kills brings back both actors as Laurie Strode and Michael Myers respectively, as well as Judy Greer as Laurie’s daughter Karen and Andi Matichak as Laurie’s granddaughter Allyson. Original cast members Kyle Richards and Charles Cyphers will also be back this time around, playing their characters Lindsey Wallace and Sheriff Leigh Brackett.
Halloween ended with Laurie, Karen and Allyson managing to trap killer Michael in a burning house and leaving him for dead, but as the first-look reveals, it seems that the fire department could be about to try and save his life, despite Laurie begging: “Let it burn!”
The release date for Halloween Kills was recently pushed back from October 2020 to October 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
