Michael Myers is back! And this time he’s bringing his trail of murder and mayhem to Peacock! After middling reviews out of Venice, David Gordon Green’s anticipated horror sequel Halloween Kills was given a dual release in theaters and Peacock of all places. Not exactly the streaming service known for big Hollywood releases, but perhaps this will change that?
Of course, Myers wasn’t dead at the end of 2018’s Halloween, so he’s back to terrorize Laurie Strode, played for the fifth (!!!) time by Jamie Lee Curtis. Only now, Laurie isn’t going to sit back and wait to be attacked; she’s going to make Myers her prey. We’ll see how that goes but since there is already a third film, Halloween Ends, something tells me she’ll be unsuccessful.
Joining Curtis are Nick Castle and James Jude Courtney who are back to play Michael Myers, plus Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Anthony Michael Hall, Will Patton, Dylan Arnold, Omar J. Darcey, Brian F. Durkin, and Thomas Mann.
Halloween Kills opens in theaters and Peacock on October 15th.
