A new Halloween Kills featurette focuses on Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode and her legacy of “warrior” women in the upcoming horror sequel.
A new video featurette for Halloween Kills focuses on the “warrior” women of the franchise. Halloween Kills is the sequel to 2018’s Halloween, which served as a direct sequel to John Carpenter’s original 1978 film and ignored the many sequels that followed the original. It allowed the new series of films to bypass the long, twisted and convoluted narrative that’s been built over decades. What’s more, it allowed the filmmakers to focus on Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode and her legacy with the masked killer, Michael Myers. The new films are part of a trilogy, which began with 2018’s Halloween, continues with this month’s Halloween Kills, and concludes with Halloween Ends in 2022.
Ignoring the long list of Halloween sequels and their events have given a new life to Laurie Strode, focusing not only on how she has survived these many years, but also looking at the legacy she’s built, namely with her own family. Judy Greer plays Strode’s daughter, while Andi Matichak plays her granddaughter, who stand as part of Strode’s legacy, like it or not. Directed once again by David Gordon Green, the Blumhouse-produced horror film will follow the continued battle of Strode and her family to survive the relentless pursuit of The Shape, a murderous force of nature embodied in Michael Myers.
