A brand new trailer for Halloween Kills has been unleashed, teasing a return to a classic location from the slasher franchise.

The movie is set to pick up right after the events of 2018's Halloween, with Michael Myers emerging from Laurie Strode's (Jamie Lee Curtis) burning house, only to go on another killing rampage.

In the clip, Laurie is taken to hospital – and it looks like she's back at the Haddonfield Memorial Hospital, the main setting for Halloween II, suggesting a neat Easter egg for fans of the franchise.

However, Laurie isn't taking the serial killer's survival lying down in her hospital bed, telling daughter Karen (Judy Greer) that "evil dies tonight".

"Michael Myers is flesh and blood, but a man couldn't have survived that fire," she goes on to note. "The more he kills, the more he transcends."

Yet he'd better watch out, as Laurie vows that she is "coming for" him.

Meanwhile, star Andi Matichak has teased what to expect from the new sequel, revealing a "big, wonderfully chaotic, mad and ambitious" script.

"It felt so exciting to tell this story. And the sequences that I saw just affirmed that we were able to achieve all of those things."

Halloween Kills is set to be released in cinemas on October 15, 2021. Halloween is available to purchase on Blu-ray, DVD, 4K and streaming now.
