The writer of Halloween Kills promises a bigger, badder and bolder sequel… In all honesty, what is he supposed to say in this situation? It’s not like they’re going to tell us if they messed up on the story. I personally enjoyed Halloween more on a second watch lowering my expectations.
Luckily for us, production was completed last year before the covid-19 pandemic took over Hollywood and the World. The co-writer Scott Teems talked with Movieweb about the sequel.
”I really can’t say anything about it, but I am really excited about it. I saw a rough cut of it a few weeks ago, and I’m a little biased, but my gut says that people that like the last one will be very excited about this one. It’s like the first one on steroids, I guess. It really is the bigger, worse, meaner version of the first one.”
Jamie Lee Curtis has also previously teased Halloween Kills will be about the trauma left from the original John Carpenter film.
”What I love that David and Danny and company did is they connected the dots for forty years, now they’re going back to really unpack the first movie, bringing back all those characters whose lives were affected by what happened in 1978… And then the last movie is the sort of cultural phenomenon of violence, that’s what the third movie ultimately is, a very powerful examination of violence.”
