john carpenter halloween kills

John Carpenter is a legend, and every time he gives a new interview, he drops enjoyable little quotes that we can all obsess over. Just recently he gave a great interview with The Daily Beast in which he called horrible former President Ronald Reagan an “old piece of shit,” and we all had a good laugh. Now, as Carpenter’s interviews continue for his latest album – Lost Themes III: Life After Death – we have another quote we’re going to zero in on. This quote has to do with Halloween Kills, the latest entry in the Halloween franchise that Carpenter helped create over 40 years ago. According to the legendary filmmaker, the upcoming Halloween sequel is the “ultimate slasher” movie. And that’s saying something.

Michael Myers is stepping out in the latest Halloween Kills image. The iconic, immortal slasher, known to his friends and family as The Shape, returns in the upcoming sequel to 2018’s Halloween. Jamie Lee Curtis is back again as Laurie Strode, and the sequel will be picking up immediately after the previous film’s conclusion. This image underlines that, showing Michael emerging from the burning house Laurie and her daughter and granddaughter left him in right before the end credits rolled.

halloween kills images

I was disappointed by the delay of several different films due out in 2020, and Edgar Wright’s Last Night in Soho and David Gordon Green‘s Halloween Kills were both at the top of the list. Last Night in Soho was supposed to arrive in September 2020 but ended up being pushed to April 2021, and with the way things are going, there’s always a chance it gets bumped again. Halloween Kills, meanwhile, was slated for October 2020 but got shuffled to October 2021. I was a big fan of David Gordon Green’s Halloween, and I’m very curious to see where he goes with this sequel. And I’m always eager for new stuff from Wright, but I’m particularly excited about Last Night in Soho because it’s apparently Wright’s first straight-up horror movie.

Now, while we wait for these two horror titles to arrive, two new images give us glimpses at what’s to come.

halloween kills first look

The Halloween franchise has brought us plenty of horror over the years, but this year, it brought joy to a terminally ill super fan who was given a bittersweet blessing by director David Gordon Green and slasher icon Jamie Lee Curtis.

Anthony Woodle is a horror super fan and aspiring director who was diagnosed with Stage IV esophageal cancer in 2019. That means he wasn’t going to be able to see Halloween Kills, the next installment of the reinvigorated franchise that was supposed to be released in theaters this year, but ended up being pushed to October 2021. But thanks to the efforts of a close friend, Woodle was not only able to screen Halloween Kills before he passed, but his final moments were made even more special by Curtis herself. Read More »

halloween kills and black lives matter

Halloween is over, but we still have next Halloween to look forward to. And with it, Halloween Kills, the sequel to 2018’s Halloween that will once again have Jamie Lee Curtis battling Michael “The Shape” Myers. We got a great new teaser trailer for the flick last week, and with it came a new interview with Curtis. The once and future Laurie Strode commented on the fact that this new Halloween feels almost timely, with Curtis even going so far as to make comparisons to the Black Lives Matter movement.

Until then, we have this intense, entertaining teaser that shows the Shape wrecking havoc all over Haddonfield while Laurie Strode and her daughter and granddaughter try to stop him. Watch the Halloween Kills teaser below.

halloween kills praise

Look, whenever someone involved with a movie says that particular movie is good, that’s really not news. Of course someone with a vested interest in a product will proclaim its superiority – that’s just how stuff works. But there are exceptions. For example – John Carpenter is famous (or maybe infamous?) for not mincing words. If he doesn’t like something, he’ll be honest about it. Why? Because he really doesn’t have anything to lose. He has his legacy secured, and he’s more than happy to spend his days now collecting royalty checks and playing video games. So whenever Carpenter chimes in with praise for something – even if it’s something he’s involved with – it’s worth acknowledging. And that’s what we’re doing right now, because Carpenter recently sang the praises of the upcoming Halloween Kills.

halloween kills main character

Jamie Lee Curtis‘s horror heroine Laurie Strode was front and center in David Gordon Green‘s 2018 version of Halloween, but in Halloween Kills, Curtis’s character will be taking a bit of a back seat and letting another character slide into the spotlight instead. In a recent interview, Green reveals that Curtis is still the “emotional core” of the new movie, but that Laurie’s granddaughter Allyson (played by Andi Matichak) will take more of a leadership role this time around.

Plus, the co-writer/director talks about how the upcoming sequel is about the “outrage” of the small town of Haddonfield in the wake of the violence Michael Myers left behind. Read his quotes below. Read More »
