Halloween Kills will be heading to the big screen this October just in time to terrify us all during the spooky season, with notorious serial killer Michael Myers set to be on the loose once again.
John Carpenter, who co-created the Halloween franchise back in 1978, returned to the horror franchise for its 2018 reboot movie Halloween to compose its musical score and he has also turned his hand to the music for upcoming sequel Halloween Kills.
Although it may still be quite a few months away from hitting the big screen, it sounds like slasher fans have a lot to look forward to from Halloween Kills because Carpenter has teased that it's the "ultimate slasher" movie.
"It's brilliant," he told Entertainment Weekly. "It's the ultimate slasher. I mean, there's nothing more than this one. Wow! Man."
If Halloween veteran Carpenter is impressed, there are definitely big thrills in store for fans.
Carpenter also confirmed that he, his son Cody Carpenter and his godson Daniel Davies have now finished scoring Halloween Kills, but unfortunately work hasn't yet been able to start on the next sequel due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We're done with that," he said, referring to Halloween Kills. "Unfortunately, we can't score the next one (Halloween Ends), because everything's on shutdown. Hopefully things will get better next year."
Halloween Kills will pick up immediately after the dramatic events of 2018's Halloween, which saw original character Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) once again fight off Myers (Nick Castle), this time with the help of her daughter Karen Nelson (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson Nelson (Andi Matichak).
With the killer still on the loose, Laurie and her family will need to work with allies old and new in order to defend their town against Myers.
The film's director David Gordon Green recently spoke about the timeliness of this sequel, revealing that there "couldn't be a more interesting time to release a movie like this" due to its themes of "community fear, paranoia, misinformation and crowd panic".
