After a nearly decade-long hiatus following Rob Zombie’s poorly received Halloween II, Blumhouse and director David Gordon Green gifted fans with Halloween (2018), a direct sequel to John Carpenter’s original 1978 classic that retconned the others.
While some fans were upset that their favorite past Halloween sequels had effectively been erased from the story, most enjoyed Blumhouse’s reboot, even if that twist with Michael’s doctor still makes no damn sense a year after the film premiered in theaters.
Awhile back, it was confirmed that after Halloween (2018) was a hit, the film would receive two sequels, Halloween Kills in 2020 and Halloween Ends in 2021. While Kills is still nearly a year away, it hasn’t wasted any time, and has now wrapped production.
The news that Halloween Kills had finished filming was revealed in the post above by the Halloween franchise’s official Instagram account. Halloween Kills took only 36 days to film, which is fast, but is actually in keeping with Blumhouse’s usual short timeframe.
Finishing production this far in advance of release certainly gives Green time to make Halloween Kills the best sequel possible, although there will of course likely be reshoots and things of that nature along the way. For now, I can’t wait for next October.
