Halloween Kills: Director David Gordon Green Talks The Bloodier Sequel

2018 was the year Halloween came home. Director David Gordon Green’s revisionist sequel erased the history of the series, acting as a direct follow-up to John Carpenter’s legendary 1978 original.

Helmed as a return to form for the franchise, all eyes are now on this year’s Halloween Kills which aims to up the ante before the trilogy bows out with Halloween Ends in 2022.

This sequel picks up the story directly after the events of Halloween, when the Strode family left Michael burning – although their torment is far from over. The Shape returns, and the bloodbath continues.
