This year, Michael Myers escapes his fiery fate and goes on yet another murderous rampage in “Halloween Kills.” The sequel to the 2018 loose reboot takes place shortly after Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee 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. However, when they discover that Michael Myers has escaped, Laurie takes it upon herself to rally the town of Haddonfield to take up arms and fight against the unstoppable monster.
Now Universal Pictures has released a brand new featurette centering on the strength of the Strode women, and how they refuse to be victims by actively taking on Michael Myers himself. In it, Jamie Lee Curtis details Laurie’s warrior spirit,and how she turned her daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) into warriors.
The featurette also sees director David Gordon Green addressing how Laurie is passing down the torch she’s had to carry all these years to her daughters who now bear the responsibility of bringing this evil to rest. Even writer Danny McBride says these women are fighters.
Here’s the official plot synopsis for “Halloween Kills:”
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.
We’ve seen how the Strode family has put up with Michael Myers for far too long, but “Halloween Kills” finally gives the people of Haddoenfield a chance to fight back. The question is, does this community have what it takes to bring down a man who has been terrorizing their homes for the past few decades, or will Michael Myers live on? We will just have to wait and see.
Will Patton, Thomas Mann and Anthony Michael Hall also star.
“Halloween Kills” opens in theaters and launches on Peacock on October 15, 2021.
