Michael Myers is Back in Chilling New Teaser for “Halloween Kills”

The biggest reveal in this brand new Halloween Kills teaser is that Judy Greer’s Karen is still wearing that Christmas sweater from two years ago! Okay, there are juicier things happening in this glimpse at David Gordon Green’s follow-up to his sensational 2018 Halloween sequel of John Carpenter’s iconic 1978 original, namely that Karen and the indomitable Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) are once again facing the unkillable killing machine that is Michael Myers. And we’ve got a look at the adult version of Tommy Doyle, here played by Anthony Michael Hall.

By now you know that Halloween Kills was originally slated for release this October, but, alas, all our hopes and dreams for this year have come to naught. Now, we can expect to see Green’s follow-up on October 15, 2021. This potent but short teaser plops us down in Haddonfield, where Laurie is once again forced to play town crier. She’s warning everyone that Michael is back for blood, and we see The Shape pick up his mask, meaning all hell is about to break loose.

There’s a victim in this teaser—we’re assuming someone not any of the major characters—and shots of Laurie and her granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) readying for battle. We also see one of the original actors in Carpenter’s 1978 classic, Nancy Stephens, playing Marion Chambers for the fourth time. The shot we see of her here is a direct callback to the first film—someone smashes through her car window, the same thing that happened when she met Michael all those years ago. And Stephens isn’t the only original Carpenter alum on hand; Kyle Richards, who was a youngster when she played Lindsey Wallace in the first Halloween, is back to reprise that role, too.

The teaser’s a hoot, and promises (we hope) better things in 2021. Check it out below:
