Halloween Kills is the second film in the longstanding franchise to be directed and co-written by David Gordon Green. A third film under the director, Halloween Ends, is currently in development. All three films have been put out under Jason Blum’s mammoth horror studio Blumhouse.
The director took to Blumhouse’s Twitter in 2020 to tease that Halloween Kills will feature the most violent scene he’s ever directed.
Elsewhere, Curtis has hailed the film a “masterpiece”.
“The power, of the rage of voices, big groups of people coming together enraged at the set of circumstances, [is] what the movie is [about],” she told SiriusXM.
Halloween Kills will open in UK and US cinemas on October 15.
