At the first-ever virtual BlumFest today, new footage was released for Halloween Kills, giving us a closer look at the next blood-spattered round between Michael Myers and Laurie Strode following the fiery conclusion of Halloween (2018).

Below you can view the new footage from Halloween Kills ahead of its October 15th, 2021 release.

Featuring Jamie Lee Curtis reprising her role as Laurie Strode, Halloween Kills will also bring back Judy Greer as Laurie's daughter, Karen, and Andi Matichak as Laurie's granddaughter, Allyson.

Other characters from the original Halloween will also return in Halloween Kills, including Tommy Doyle (played by Anthony Michael Hall, although Brian Andrews played him in the original film) and Lindsey Wallace (Kyle Richards), the two children Laurie babysat on the night HE came home in 1978.

Halloween (2018) director David Gordon Green returns to helm both Halloween Kills (from a screenplay written by Green, McBride, and Scott Teems) and Halloween Ends (from a screenplay written by Green, McBride, Paul Brad Logan, and Chris Bernier).

Blumhouse is once again teaming up with Universal Pictures, Trancas International Films, and Miramax to bring the new Halloween movies to life. With 1978's Halloween and 2018's Halloween sharing the same timeline, the upcoming sequels will form a new quadrilogy in the Halloween franchise.

You can watch the new footage below, and stay tuned to Daily Dead for future updates on Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends.
