Could it be the most violent Halloween movie of all time? After a year of delay, Universal and Blumhouse are finally gearing up for release HALLOWEEN TUES, the long-awaited sequel to David Gordon Green’s sequel forty years later. As previously revealed, the film picks up immediately after the last film, with the set still being October 31, 2018. Jamie Lee Curtis returns as iconic Laurie Strode, with Judy Greer returning as his estranged daughter. Karen and Andi Matichak as her granddaughter Allyson.
As rumored, the film explains Michael Myers’ connection to the people of Haddonfield, including Anthony Michael Hall’s Tommy Doyle. He was one of the children Laurie kept in the John Carpenter original. You can see him in the trailer briefly wielding a bat. It looks like the movie enters Michael’s knack for escaping certain death – will there be some paranormal reason for his seemingly eternal nature? Maybe not, but even still, it looks very cool – and ultra-violent with a few gruesome murders teased in the trailer. I dig the flashback for Halloween II, which also memorably unfolded on the same night as its predecessor. Anyway, Halloween tue, who exit October 15, already has another sequel, Halloween is over, which will be released almost exactly one year later, the October 14, 2022.
