John Carpenter & David Gorden Green give update on Halloween Kills

The horror community are still waiting to see if Halloween Kills will be delayed from its current release date of October 16, 2020. This week fans of the franchise got some fresh new insights from both composer/executive producer John Carpenter and director David Gordon Green.


Carpenter spoke about the upcoming film with Indiewire this week.

The horror master told the site:

“The cut is done. They’ll mix it in New York in the next week or so. Then it will be in the can. My work is all done.
The movie is something else. It’s fun, intense and brutal, a slasher movie times one hundred, big time. It’s huge.”

He added:

“I’ve never seen anything like this: the kill count!”


Available on shelves this week is Empire Magazine’s Big-Screen Preview edition, and in it Green offers some insights of his own. In particular, he teases the storyline.

“The first one was more about Laurie’s life of isolation after Michael and her attempts at revenge. It was personal. This is more about the unraveling of a community into chaos. It’s about how fear spreads virally”.


In the same vein of its predecessor, Halloween Kills is set to have many returning characters appear.

Charles Cyphers has reprised the role of Sheriff Leigh Brackett  one of many fan favourites of the original 1978 Halloween.

Some of the other confirmed stars from the first movie set to return are Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace, Nancy Stephens as Nurse Marion Chambers and Nick Castle once again sharing the role of Michael Myers with James Jude Courtney.

Of course Jamie Lee CurtisJudy Greer and Andi Matichak are also all set to return for the sequel as the surviving members of the Strode family.

Meanwhile, the Tommy Doyle character played by Brian Andrews in the original movie is also returning for Halloween Kills, but the role has been recast with Anthony Michael Hall and this instalment will also see Robert Longstreet as Lonnie Elam.
