It’s that time of year again- Halloween. This year, director David Gordon Green is back, releasing his next horror film. Halloween Kills is the sequel to the mega-successful 2018 Halloween movie.

Halloween Kills premiered at the 78th Venice International Film Festival in September of 2021. Reviews suggest this sequel is even bloodier and more relentless, but equally as good. Regarding how scary the film is, let’s just say fans will certainly be left biting their nails.

The 2018 horror film was a remake of John Carpenter's 1978 classic, and Halloween Kills picks up right where the last movie left off. In this slasher, the character’s try to take down the killer, Michael Myers. Laurie convinces the small town of Haddonfield, Illinois to retaliate.

Do I need to see the prequel?

It can’t hurt to watch the 1978 classic and 2018 Halloween, but it certainly isn’t necessary in order to follow the plot. The film is filled with flashbacks that should fill in all the holes for you to grasp the movie in its entirety.
