David Gordon Green‘s 2018 stab at the Halloween franchise was met with guarded praise and success at the box office. So, of course, we now have not one but two follow-ups on the way. The first, Halloween Kills, is due this autumn and the latest trailer is online. Be forewarned – it appears awfully spoilery in terms of Myers action…

To absolutely no one’s surprise (except perhaps Jamie Lee Curtis‘ Laurie Strode, who really should know the score at this point), Michael Myers is not dead after Laurie and her family trapped him in a burning house.

But with The Shape on the loose and murdering people again, Laurie decides that the time truly has come to put an end to the killing, you know, really, truly, properly this time. Along for the attempt are a returning Judy Greer, Andi Matichak and Will Patton, while Kills‘ cast will feature an assortment of new franchise faces and some returning veterans, including Charles Cyphers as Sheriff Leigh Brackett and Nancy Stephens as Marion Chambers. And then there’s the hybrid, Anthony Michael Hall as Tommy, who Laurie was babysitting in the 1978 original.

Green wrote the script with Danny McBride and Scott Teems and the film will stalk into cinemas on 15 October. Halloween Ends will follow on 14 October next year.
