Halloween Kills: New images show off moments from brutal, bloody, wild film

Director David Gordon Green's Halloween Kills, scheduled for an October 15th theatrical release, is the main cover story in the new issue of Total Film magazine, which will be reaching shelves this Friday. With the article comes a trio of new images from the film that Total Film got the exclusive first look at, and now you can check them out below. One is a familiar shot of heroines Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), her daughter Karen (Judy Greer), and her granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) as we left them at the end of Halloween 2018. Another image is from the firefighter sequence shown in the trailer (embedded above). And the third really brings a smile to my face, because it promises that Halloween Kills will feature a moment that many viewers hoped to see in the previous film. A confrontation between iconic slasher Michael Myers and a character who deserves to cross paths with him.

Speaking with Total Film, Curtis said this film is 

intense and brutal. Just brutal."

Co-writer Danny McBride added, 

There's an incredible amount of killing in this movie. It's so bloody. It's wild. David [Gordon Green] just went for it. This is such a vicious sequel. It's relentless. The sequel is almost always where (a horror franchise) shits the bed. Or the monster is over-explained, or something happens that makes it into a joke. We really wanted find a way to sidestep that."

Set on the same night as 2018's Halloween (which you can watch HERE), which ignored all of the previous Halloween movies except for the 1978 original (watch that one HERE), Halloween Kills is said to be about 

the creation of fear. It's one thing to be afraid of the Boogeyman, to have someone who might be in the closet, under the bed, creeping around your house... But we wanted to explore next was confusion, misinformation, and paranoia. What happens when fear goes viral? You can’t just stick your head under the covers any more."

Also in the cast are Robert Longstreet as Lonnie Elam, Dylan Arnold as Allyson's boyfriend / Lonnie's son Cameron, Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace, Anthony Michael Hall as Tommy Doyle, Nancy Stephens as Nurse Marion, Charles Cyphers as Leigh Brackett, Jibrail Nantambu as scene stealer Julian, child actress Victoria Paige Watkins as a character named Christy, and James Jude Courtney as Michael Myers. Original Michael Myers performer Nick Castle also has a one scene cameo.

David Gordon Green directed Halloween Kills from a screenplay he wrote with Danny McBride and Scott Teems. Green, McBride, and Curtis also serve as executive producers alongside Couper Samuelson and Carpenter. Jason Blum produced with Malek Akkad.

Halloween Kills is rated R for "strong bloody violence throughout, grisly images, language and some drug use".
