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.

Archer Comic-Con panel 2020
