New information about the plot and the main character whet the appetite for “Halloween Kills”

Horror fans are slowly getting an idea of ​​what the “Halloween Kills” – recently postponed to October 2021 – is about. Prepare for an angry small town – and an angry Allyson as the main character.

The author of these lines has long believed that “Halloween” (2018) would be a perfect end to the series, in which Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) finally got her revenge, but had to become a monster herself. But there are two more films to come, “Halloween Kills” and “Halloween Ends”, for which I am gradually getting excited.

On the one hand, the teaser for “Halloween Kills” is simply wonderful in all its reduced force and a prime example of how film previews should be designed. “LET IT BURN, LET IT BURN!”

“Halloween Kills”: A city is angry

On the other hand, director and screenwriter David Gordon Green, who is also doing the two sequels after “Halloween”, has now described the plot of the film to Total Film as follows:

“How do the ‘Halloween’ films stay interesting and don’t become repetitive? If my first film was about repeating the origin story of Michael Myers in a way and showing us what Laurie has been up to over the years, the second film is about the outrage in Haddonfield. “

The city, which has always been the main location of the films, is likely to be in an uproar because of Michael Myer’s crimes – and probably also because the authorities could not prevent Michael’s second rampage, neither the staff in his former institution nor the police could.

This plot is somewhat reminiscent of the original concept of “Halloween 4”, in which the psychological effects of the massacres should be shown, the emotional traces in Haddonfield, before the film producers unfortunately dumped this idea in favor of a more traditional slasher plot.

David Gordon Green continues: “Our working title for ‘Halloween Kills’ was ‘Mob Rules’. It’s about a community that is united by anger, but divided by how to deal with evil. “

Laurie in the hospital, Allyson angry

As in “Halloween II” from 1981 (the plot of which is ignored in “Halloween” (2018) and the two new films), Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) in “Halloween Kills” is a large part of the film about being in the hospital. In “Halloween” (2018) it wasn’t that easy to choose a main character, but in “Halloween Kills” Laurie should definitely only be a secondary character.

David Gordon Green confirmed this and said: “Laurie is a voice of knowledge and yesmovie who tries to give a little purpose to an unstable community.” The new, unambiguous main character becomes Laurie’s granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak).

“When we met Allyson in the first new movie, she was the nice girl next door. Well, just hours later, it is on fire. She’s, in a way, the leader, and one of the bloodthirstiest of the group. Her mother Karen, on the other hand, who has dealt much more with Laurie, tries to resist the urge to kill. “

“Halloween Kills” should start in the cinemas in October 2020, but was postponed to October 14, 2021 due to Corona.

“Halloween Kills” should start in the cinemas in October 2020, but was postponed to October 14, 2021 due to Corona.

“Halloween Ends”, which is to be shot from autumn 2020, will follow on October 13, 2022 according to current planning.

A little something about “Halloween Ends”

David Gordon Green reveals somewhat cryptic and slightly spoiling about “Halloween Ends”:

“The film is very different from my other two. The script is a lot of fun. It’s supposed to be my ‘Laurie Strode vs. Complete the Michael Myers‘ story. “Which means we now know that Laurie at least survived the bloodbath in” Halloween Kills “:

John Carpenter promises lots of deaths in “Halloween Kills”
