Synopsis

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.

Director’s Statement

We were thrilled when Halloween was embraced by audiences around the world in 2018, so we wanted to really expand our canvas with Halloween Kills, making it even bigger, badder, nastier and crazier than the first film. It’s called Halloween Kills, after all, so we had to make sure the film lived up to that title. This is the most action I have ever done in a film. No scene is quiet or calm. It’s full of anxiety and stabbing and burning and broken things, and it’s unlike any Halloween film fans have seen before. We’re honoured that the Venice International Film Festival will be the site of our world premiere. We couldn’t have picked a better, or more beautiful, city to begin our reign of terror.
