'Halloween Kills' drops another teaser trailer, Jamie Lee Curtis says film connects to BLM
Another teaser trailer for "Halloween Kills" has arrived!
In the latest trailer for the horror film, which was set to come out this month before the coronavirus pandemic delayed it until Oct. 15, 2021, Jamie Lee Curtis gives an ominous voiceover as she reprises her role as Laurie Strode.
"Next Halloween, when the sun sets, and someone is alone, he kills," she says. The trailer then shows the franchise's famous baddie Michael Myers picking up his iconic white mask from the ground.
In the clips that follow, Myers slashes someone's throat, Curtis slowly looks over her shoulder and an angry mob appears to swarm an ambulance.
Kyle Richards, who reprises her role as Lindsey in the film for the first time since the 1978 original, shared the trailer on her Instagram Thursday.
During her appearance on SiriusXM on Monday, Jamie Lee Curtis, who has starred as her scream queen character in numerous "Halloween" films, including the original in 1978, discussed the upcoming sequel.
According to Curtis, "Halloween Kills" explores the trauma of the other original "Halloween" characters — not just Laurie's.
"There are a lot of other people that had the result of Michael Myers in 1978, and we brought back all of those people," she said. One of those people is Richard's Lindsey, a little girl Laurie looks after on Halloween night in the original 1978 flick.
Although "Halloween Kills" was shot in 2019, Curtis said it resonates with protests and riots that have swept the country in the aftermath of George Floyd's death.
"The movie is about a mob," Curtis said. "It takes on what happens when trauma infects an entire community, and we're seeing it everywhere with the Black Lives Matter movement. We're seeing it in action."
She continued: "When you see it, it's a seething group of people moving through the story as a big, angry group. It's really, really, really intense. It's a masterpiece."
Though "Halloween Kills" hasn't come out yet, Curtis is already signed on for another sequel, "Halloween Ends," due in 2022. As for that film, Curtis is keeping her lips (mostly) sealed.
"'Halloween Ends' is a total secret, but it's amazing," she said. "It’s just amazing."
When asked for a "snippet" about this film, Curtis insisted "I can't" before relenting.
"OK here's my snippet," she said. "Legacy. It really has to do with the nature of evil and the legacy of evil."
