While 2020 will see most of the big films pushed back a few months, with some not even being released until next year, the sequel to the 2018 re-booted Halloween is still on track for an October release.

Having become a box office smash and winning critical acclaim, Halloween 2018 did get a mixed response from die hard fans, with many split in opinion of the brave choices it made in its story-telling.

Most notably, the change of Laurie Strode now being alive and no longer the sister of Michael was a controversial one, but it did set the franchise onto a somewhat new path even though in the upcoming sequel we will see Laurie once more face the ultimate Bogeyman.

The sequel recently had a private screening with just 200 people and the feedback was thankfully well appreciated. Now Co writer Scott Teems has made some comments that will make you excited!

I really can’t say anything about it, but I am really 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.”

We can all hope right?

Halloween Kills is out on October 16th and is directed by David Gordan Green.
