Halloween Kills is "Bigger, Badder and Meaner"

Halloween Kills is without doubt one the most anticipated horror films to be released this year. Of course, if it is still released this year. Due to the ongoing CoVid-19 pandemic, several highly anticipated film releases have been delayed. As of yet, Halloween Kills is still set to release October 16th 2020 and fingers crossed it remains that way.

Recently MovieWeb managed to catch up with the sequel's co-writer, Scott Teems, regarding his latest film The Quarry. Whilst Teems couldn't give too much away he made some pretty strong comments regarding the upcoming Halloween film.

"I can't really say anything about it, but I am excited about it. I saw a rough cut of it a few weeks ago, and I'm a little biased, but my gut says that people that like the last one will be very excited about this one. It's like the first one on steroids, I guess. It really is the bigger, badder, meaner version of the first one."

Of course Teems isn't the first one to say this. James Jude Courtney, who returned for Halloween Kills to wear the iconic mask a second time, made similar comments about the film back in February.

"We pumped up the volume on this one. We've progressed late into the night, and now that everybody realises what the stakes's reaching a head. It's [the 2018 film] on speed."

And lets not forger the first test screening reactions for the film back in Feb were mostly positive.

David Gordon Green returned as director with most of 2018's cast reprising their roles. The 2018 film went on gross an incredible $255 million worldwide which quickly prompted Universal and Blumhouse to cut a deal for another two sequels- Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends. Teems co-wrote the screenplay for Kills with Danny McBride and David Gordon Green. Where the franchise will go after that, it's anyones guess really. It has been promised though that Kills and Ends will provide a definitive finish to this storyline.
