The First “Halloween Kills” Teaser Reveals Laurie Strode’s Endless Nightmare

Well, the good news is we’ve got a brand new glimpse of the upcoming Halloween Kills, the next installment in the legendary franchise from co-writer/director David Gordon Green and writers Danny McBride and Scott Teems. The not so good news is we won’t be seeing Halloween Kills this Halloween. Universal has announced that the sequel to Green’s smashing 2018 hit Halloween will be delayed a full year, from October 16 2020 to October 15, 2021. This bumps back the final film in Green’s new trilogy, Halloween Ends, a year as well, to October 14, 2022.

But let’s stick with the positive! There’s a lot to feel good about it when it comes to the reboot of this franchise, which Green, McBride, and franchise star Jamie Lee Curtis brought back with such oomph two years ago. This short teaser gives us a little bit of what happened after the end of the last film, which involves one very insistent Laurie Strode (Curtis) and a couple of fire trucks just trying to do their jobs.

Have a look:

“Let him burn!” Strode screams, and hoo boy you have to feel for her. After everything she’s been through with Michael Myers, the thought that a bunch of firemen just doing their jobs might once again keep Michael in the game is infuriating, to say the least.

And let’s give a shout out to Jamie Lee Curtis, who has now made Strode the all-time most indomitable character in a horror franchise. Strode has seen a shocking amount of carnage and horror thanks to that lumbering super-killer Michael Myers. Over the years, she’s become Michael’s main obsession and pluckiest adversary. It was only last October (roughly 450-years ago, of course) that Curtis shared this photo from the set of Halloween Kills:

The photo, like the teaser, reveals that, once again, Laurie will be going through hell. We’re bummed we’ll have to wait an extra year to see her in action, but we’re confident it’ll be worth the wait.
