Halloween Kills is still a ways off. In fact we still have to wait an entire year. The wait for the next entry of the franchise is set for October 15, 2021, and boy is that going to be a tough wait.
Halloween Kills picks up right where Halloween 2018 left off. This means that Laurie Strode and her family had just set a fire trap, and left Michael trapped and engulfed in flames. Or so we thought, and so did she. Because, he looks like he is doing pretty well in this one and doesn’t seem to have as much burn tissue as one would expect to see after being buried in a basement of fire and revenge.
As part of Blumfest, Blumhouse gave us a nice tasty morsel. I suppose the fans have knocked at Jason Blum’s door long enough. In celebration of Halloween it looks like he finally opened the door to give the fans their candy. And by candy I mean a closer look at the dynamics of Halloween Kills.
The trailer reveals an interesting turn. This shows Laurie with the towns people. In the same frame and everything. That is a completely new angle. Laurie Strode has very much always been the outsider in the films. Most notably, in Halloween 2018 she was a complete lone wolf, the crazy lady that the town had sort of signed off on as a complete nut case under their breath.
Well, those same towns people look like they are basically trying to hold her hand now. It’s exciting that we are going to get a fully evolved Laurie. One that has become the person that she made herself into. See, lets not get it crossed and assume that Michael made her into this. Maybe we believed that in Halloween 2018 but, now we know better. She is too badass and it appears that she has fully evolved like a Pokemon. Strode-chu maybe?
From what we see of Michael he appears to be on the defensive for once. He looks like a scared animal, killing everything around him due to a misinterpreted fear signal.
So, all in all, the short trailer looks to bring Haddonfield united and Michael completely divided. Oh, and Anthony Michael Hall as Tommy Doyle. Don’t think I forgot or missed that extreme bit of coolness.
Halloween Kills can’t get here soon enough. In the meantime, let us know what you think about the trailer. What do you think about the new Strode/Haddonfield dynamics? Let us know in the comments section.
