Soon-To-Be Firefighter Starts Petition Against Halloween Kills
Updated: Oct 8, 2021
So in true fashion of people getting offended by literally anything nowadays, it appears a soon-to-be firefighter in the US is not happy with the highly anticipated Halloween Kills film.
I'm not sure if this is trolling at it's finest or just pure stupidity, but lets be honest there's not really any way to tell in this day and age. Anyway, the new Halloween film has come under fire for Michael's escaoe scene. After narrowly escaping Laurie's trap, he decides to clear a path to continue his hunt for Laurie by brutally laying waste to everyone in his way. Most of which are firefighters battling the blaze started by the Strode women at the end of the 2018 film.
My first reaction was of pure joy when I saw this in the trailer; it looks amazing! I think most horror fans would agree it was a hell of a way to give fans a first proper glance at the sequel. You can see it below in all it's glory.
However, it appears not everyone was as happy as myself and the majority of horror fans. In steps Jesse Streeter, a soon-to-be firefighter who is deeply troubled and offended (cue eyeroll) by this scene. Heading to change.org Jesse is looking to garner support to have the scene removed from the film. The petition reads-
"I want the scene in the new movie Halloween Kills where they show the Slaughtering of firefighters. It is wrong because firefighters have been lured to houses fire and murdered by the person who set the fire. And it's wrong that Michael killed the firefighters with the gear from the other firefighters he killed. As a soon to be firefighter I find it very offensive and so does my mom and dad who are retired firefighters. So I want that scene taken out of the movie. Michael didn't have to kill them in a way they saved him so he should have saved the two firefighters in the house and went on his way to kill sister. There is no reason for that horrible disgusting scene. Especially since it has happened in real life. Like I said before firefighters have been lured to house fires and killed by some psycho in real life."
The petition has in fact managed to get 42 signatures so far, but luckily most of which have signed it just to tell Jesse how utter pathetic and stupid they are. In an odd turn of events some do agree with this and support the notion to remive the scene fron the film. If you do want to take a look (I don't blame you as I didn't believe it was real when I saw it in a Halloween fan group on Facebook), and have a good chuckle to yourself, you can check out the petition HERE.
As well as not understanding the storyline at all, it appears they seem to be lacking any sort of common sense as well as remembering this is just a film. I'm kind of lost for words at this point...it is pretty pathetic. Much like those clowns who rallied around when the 2017 remake of It released, this is pretty hilarious; ridiculously funny but still really pathetic. Either way I'm excited to see Halloween Kills, and luckily the wait is nearly over!
The Halloween night when Michael Myers returned isn’t over yet. Minutes after Laurie Strode, her daughter Karen and granddaughter Allyson left masked monster Michael Myers caged and burning in Laurie’s basement, Laurie is rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, believing she finally killed her lifelong tormentor.
But when Michael manages to free himself from Laurie’s trap, his ritual bloodbath resumes. As Laurie fights her pain and prepares to defend herself against him, she inspires all of Haddonfield to rise up against their unstoppable monster. The Strode women join a group of other survivors of Michael’s first rampage who decide to take matters into their own hands, forming a vigilante mob that sets out to hunt Michael down, once and for all. Evil dies tonight.
The cast includes Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, Andi Matichak and Robert Longstreet, with original Halloween actor Charles Cyphers returning as Sheriff Leigh Brackett.
Anthony Michael Hall also stars in the new film as Tommy Doyle, with the returning Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace and Nancy Stephens as Nurse Marion Chambers.
