The Halloween Kills Overview
Halloween Kills is a movie directed by David Gordon Green. His masterpiece was released in 1979. The franchise started to get back on track in 2018’s sequel after directing for 40 years.
The storyline will follow the aftermath scenarios from the last film. The movie will revolve around Laurie and Myers. There were some traumatizing events wherein Laurie ensures the safety of her daughter. She burned the house’s basement to end Myers once and for all, but the ending part indicates that the evilness still survived. From that part, this will serve for the writers to get some ideas, making the upcoming film for 2020.
