Yesterday we shared a batch of Halloween Kills posters that featured the three generations of “Strode strong” heroines that are in the movie: Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, Judy Greer as Laurie’s daughter Karen, and Andi Matichak as Karen’s daughter Allyson. Now we have a promo that also focuses on these “warriors”, and you can check it out in the embed above.

Halloween Kills is scheduled to reach theatres and the Peacock streaming service on October 15th, and the Universal marketing machine has really shifted into overdrive in these final days before the release… To a degree that makes me wonder, is this really necessary? I get the feeling that everyone who’s going to want to watch this movie is already aware of it.

David Gordon 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.

Laurie, Karen, and Allyson aren’t the only characters returning from previous Halloween movies. Also in the cast are Anthony Michael Hall as Tommy Doyle, 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 Halloween and Halloween II 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, and Kyle Richards returning to the role of Lindsey Wallace. James Jude Courtney is playing Michael Myers for the second time. Original Michael Myers performer Nick Castle also has a one scene cameo. Newcomers include Brian F. Durkin as Deputy Graham and child actress Victoria Paige Watkins as Christy.

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