'Halloween Kills' is a strange title for a franchise that just won't die

(CNN) — "Halloween Kills" is a strange name for a 43-year-old franchise that positively refuses to die. Then again, this 12th film in the series -- a direct sequel to the 2018 reset "Halloween" -- is odd on various levels, starting with the wholly misguided attempt to weave a half-baked message into its bloody mayhem.

Jason Blum Pushed ‘Halloween Kills’ to Streaming After ‘Freaky’ Failed in Theaters: ‘I Stand by It’

Blumhouse boss and horror producer Jason Blum vowed last year that David Gordon Green’s “Halloween Kills” would be released in October 2021, “vaccine or no vaccine.” Fortunately, there is a vaccine and “Halloween Kills” is set to open October 15. Unfortunately, the potential box office gross for “Halloween Kills” might be affected by the decision to make the horror sequel available to stream on Peacock on the same day it opens in theaters. Universal announced the move to streaming for “Halloween Kills” on September 9. In a new interview with Collider, Blum said that it was his decision to give “Halloween...

‘Halloween Kills’ Review: A Nostalgic Mix Tape Of Previous Michael Myers Sequels

Armed with a sense of gravitas that it never really earned, along with a seemingly “made it up on the press tour” narrative about the film representing traumatized bad-ass women taking down the patriarchy, Blumhouse’s Halloween capitalized on generational amnesia to present its legacy sequel as something new and of-the-moment. We seemingly forgot that we already saw kick-ass survivor Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) taking back the night in Steve Miner’s Halloween: H20. And while maybe we were wrong in 2007, we were supposed to be disturbed by and appalled by the grotesque and pain-centric violence inflicted against innocent civilians in the Rob Zombie-directed Halloween remake. Even if I was “wrong” about the 2018 Halloween, David Gordon Green’s Halloween Kills is exactly the kind of sequel that such a nostalgia-driven success inevitably spawns. Universal’s Blumhouse film depends too much on its connections to the original Halloween.

‘Halloween Kills’ Gets Plot-Heavy Final Trailer

The first Halloween Kills trailer, which debuted in late June in advance of F9, seemed to give away most of the film’s “Michael Myers does a murder” sequences. This new teaser, released to play with Dear Evan Hansen, seems to lay out the broad strokes of the film’s overall plot. From what we see, Michael survives the fiery trap set by the Strode women at the end of Halloween (2018), Michael kills a bunch of folks and the townspeople pick up metaphorical pitch forks and torches to “kill the beast” once and for all.
