Total Film has released an exclusive interview with David Gordon Green, as well as a still of Michael Myers from Halloween Kills!
Halloween Kills promises to bring back Michael Myers – and we should all be worried. “It’s about the creation of fear,” director David Gordon Green says of the Halloween sequel, which will not only bring back Myers and Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie but also other characters the Shape terrorised in the 1978 original.
“It’s one thing to be afraid of the Bogey Man,” he continues, “to have someone who might be in the closet, under the bed, creeping around your house… But we wanted to explore next was confusion, misinformation, and paranoia. What happens when fear goes viral? You can’t just stick your head under the covers any more.”
Green also spoke about what to expect from Halloween Kills, telling Total Film the sequel will be less personal than its predecessor, but much more action-packed as it takes place immediately after the last movie.
“When we made the last one we wanted to find a way for someone who’s never seen the original to get up to speed with the story,” he says. “But this one gets right to the action. It’s very aggressive. It’s more efficient. We wanted it to be an explosive middle before things get streamlined and personal again.”
This evening, Danielle Harris will be taking part in a live script reading for Halloween III: Season of the Witch on Scripts Gone Wild’s YouTube channel. Taking place at 7:30pm PST tonight, October 28th, Scripts Gone Wild: Halloween III has been put together to benefit Everytown for Gun Safety.
It was also announced earlier today by Bloody Disgusting that Danielle Harris will be directing an all-female slasher film entitled Sequel, with Joe Dante set to produce.
Elsewhere, Rob Zombie is set to serve a Halloween treat, with news on the release of his upcoming album in just two days on Friday, October 30th! The album will be his first since 2016’s The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser.

Speaking with HalloweenMovies.com, Halloween (2018) and Halloween Kills producer Ryan Freimann offered of the news, “Trancas International Films and Compass International Pictures have partnered with CineLife Entertainment in order to bring Halloween to audiences safely during this time of pandemic, and drive-in theater owners seem excited to be booking it as the Halloween season is right around the corner.”
For the 2020 drive-in engagement, the digital print of Halloween has been restored and remastered under the supervision of cinematographer Dean Cundey. Much like it did in 1978, the film’s rollout has started small and will grow throughout the upcoming weeks.
Locations showing John Carpenter’s Halloween this week include include Hummel’s Drive-In in Winchester, Indiana, as well as EVO Entertainment locations in both San Antonio and Austin, Texas on July 31.
Additional drive-ins also showing Halloween include ones in Nashville, Tennessee (Montana Drive-in), Buffalo, New York (Kane Family Drive-in), Hartford and New Haven, Connecticut (Pleasant Valley Drive-in) and Westtown, New York (Warwick Drive-in).
Wanna’ see Michael Myers at your own local drive-in? It’s easy! Reach out to them and let them know that they can book Halloween by visiting CineLife Entertainment’s website at cinelifeentertainment.com.
Unfortunate, but expected news, has broke today. Though the film was reportedly finished, Universal has officially postponed the release of Halloween Kills until October 15, 2021, and Halloween Ends to October 14, 2022.
Exciting news! It was just confirmed earlier this evening that Jamie Lee Curtis is set to make her directorial debut with a horror film under Blumhouse’s label!
The film, entitled Mother Nature, is part of the three-year first-look deal that her label, Comet Pictures, have with Blumhouse. Blumhouse is the distributor of the David Gordon Green Halloween trilogy that involves Halloween (2018), Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends, so my hunch is the deal may have had something to do with her signing on for those films.
