'Halloween Kills' trailer: Michael Myers has become extremely dangerous now
Ahead of its October 15 release, makers of Halloween Kills released its final trailer. The 2:18-minute-long clip seems to show us just how dangerous Michael Myers has become. The "white masked man" has survived the fire set by Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), her daughter, and granddaughter in Halloween (2018), and returns to Haddonfield to do what he does best, slaughter people.
'A man couldn't have survived that fire,' Laurie says
In the post-credit scene of Halloween, we could hear Michael's breathing, and it indicated that the inferno couldn't kill him. Upon learning this, Laurie comments, "A man couldn't have survived that fire," which implied that the murderer is no less than a monster, and has crossed all human limits. The trailer too shows us scenes of his rampage, and you know what's in store.
This time, it is Michael v/s the whole of Haddonfield
The synopsis of the film tells us that after the Strodes left Michael to die, "Laurie is rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, believing she finally killed her lifelong tormentor." But after learning that he's back along with his killing spree, "She inspires all of Haddonfield to rise up against their unstoppable monster." They then form "a vigilante mob" to "hunt Michael down."

The David Gordon Green directorial brings back some familiar faces
Apart from Lee Curtis and James Jude Courtney (Michael) reprising their roles, the slasher film directed by horror specialist David Gordon Green also brings back some familiar faces. For example, Kyle Richards, Nancy Stephens, and Charles Cyphers return as Lindsey Wallace, Marion Chambers, and Leigh Brackett, respectively, from the original Halloween movie that released in 1978. Wallace, Chambers, and Brackett have survived Michael's destruction.
Will Laurie be able to unmask Michael?
Laurie is also determined to unmask Michael and "see the life leave his eyes." It will be interesting to see if she's successful in that. But chances are she will not be, as a sequel, Halloween Ends, is also lined up for a 2022 release. Halloween Kills is being distributed by Universal and Malek Akkad, Jason Blum, and Bill Block are backing the venture.
