Halloween Kills leaves the Peacock streaming service in less than a week

As director David Gordon Green’s Halloween Kills reaches the next stages in its release strategy – the film is receiving a digital release on December 14th, with the 4K, Blu-ray, and DVD release to follow on January 11th (copies can be pre-ordered at THIS LINK) – some fans may have been hoping that they could continue watching it on the Peacock streaming service as well. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. Peacock has sent out an e-mail notifying subscribers that they only have until December 14th to watch Halloween Kills on their service. Once Halloween Kills gets its digital release, it will be leaving Peacock.

So if you want to watch Halloween Kills on Peacock, be sure to get to it sometime in the next five days!

Details on the 4K UHD, Blu-ray, DVD, and digital release can be found HERE.

Green’s Halloween 2018 (watch it HERE) ignored all of the other Halloween movies except for John Carpenter’s original (which you can watch HERE). Directed by Green from a screenplay he wrote with Danny McBride and Scott Teems, Halloween Kills is set on the same night as its predecessor.

Minutes after Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), her daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) left masked monster Michael Myers caged and burning in Laurie’s basement, Laurie is rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, believing she finally killed her lifelong tormentor. But when Michael manages to free himself from Laurie’s trap, his ritual bloodbath resumes. As Laurie fights her pain and prepares to defend herself against him, she inspires all of Haddonfield to rise up against their unstoppable monster. The Strode women join a group of other survivors of Michael’s first rampage who decide to take matters into their own hands, forming a vigilante mob that sets out to hunt Michael down, once and for all. Evil dies tonight.

The cast includes Jamie Lee Curtis as franchise heroine Laurie Strode, Judy Greer as Laurie’s daughter Karen, Andi Matichak as Laurie’s granddaughter Allyson, Robert Longstreet as Lonnie Elam (a character from the original film), Dylan Arnold reprising the role of Allyson’s boyfriend / Lonnie’s son Cameron, Jibrail Nantambu as Halloween 2018 scene stealer Julian, Omar Dorsey as Sheriff Barker, Nancy Stephens back in her HalloweenHalloween II, and Halloween H20 role of Marion Chambers, Charles Cyphers back as Brackett, Will Patton as Deputy Hawkins, Carmela McNeal and Michael Smallwood as “Sexy Nurse” Vanessa and “Hunky Doctor” Marcus, Anthony Michael Hall as Tommy Doyle, and Kyle Richards returning to the role of Lindsey Wallace. James Jude Courtney is playing Michael Myers for the second time. Newcomers include Brian F. Durkin as Deputy Graham and child actress Victoria Paige Watkins as Christy.

Original Michael Myers performer Nick Castle was brought in for a one scene cameo, but it ended up being cut.

Green, McBride, and Curtis also serve as executive producers on Halloween Kills alongside Couper Samuelson and John Carpenter. Jason Blum produced with Malek Akkad.
