Halloween Kills : Horror Movie to Look Forward to on October 2020
While Universal Pictures has released some of its 2020 movies via streaming platforms, its “Halloween Kills’ is still slated for cinematic screening.
Just as originally planned, the sequel to the 2018 Halloween slasher hit will arrive in U.S. theaters on October 15, 2020,.t The forthcoming Halloween offering, is actually the 12th installment of the “Halloween” franchise. It will be a continuation of the story written by David Gordon Green and Danny McBride with Scott Teems joining in as a new member of the writing team.
David Gordon Green will still be at the helm as director, while several of the major characters will be returning with the same actors reprising the roles they played in the 11th “Halloween” installment. As Jamie Lee Curtis had previously revealed by a teaser released in October 2019, she will still be returning as Laurie Strode.
Laurie Strode’s Halloween Background Story
A younger Jamie Lee Curtis, the daughter of famous Hollywood movie stars Janet Leigh and Tony Curtis, got recognized for her acting ability when she portrayed the teenage Laurie Strode in the first Halloween horror movie in 1978.
As the final girl who was able to escape and live through the horrors of serial killer Michael Myers’ first killing spree.
This year’s “Halloween Kills” shows her personal sufferings as she faces life that is constantly threatened by Michael Myers (Nick Castle/stuntman James Jude Courtney). The masked-serial killer was later revealed in a subsequent sequel as Laurie’s deranged brother.
In other Halloween installments, it was also explained that while institutionalized in a mental asylum, Michael Myers somehow gained immortality through the help of some members of an ancient religious cult.
Apparently as Halloweens came and went, Laurie Strode failed to have a good life as she lived in constant fear of Michael Myers’ return. Laurie became an alcoholic, which led to her estrangement from her daughter. Still, somehow their paths cross again and a previous reconciliation saw the now elderly Laurie Strode living with her daughter and grandchildren.
Why “Halloween Kills” is Still Not the End
Actually, a thirteenth Halloween installment and sequel called “Halloween Ends,” is already available, and awaiting release in October 2021. The “Halloween Kills” writers had initially planned to have a back-to-back release but decided to put a one year gap in between. That way, they will be able to know if they need to make improvements based on the reactions of the “Halloween Kills” audience.Tags: Halloween Kills, Jamie Lee Curtis, October 2020 Horror Movie
