Eleven films, one video game and countless novels and comic books later, the “Halloween” franchise is the gift that keeps on giving. In “Halloween Kills,” Jamie Lee Curtis reprises the role that made her famous and cemented her name in Final Girl history.
The new film picks up decades after Laurie Strode first encountered the knife-wielding killer Michael Myers in John Carpenter’s 1978 film. Their last interaction – in David Gordon Green’s 2018 “Halloween” – ended with Myers trapped in Strode’s burning basement, still breathing but with seemingly no chance of survival. Somehow, he escapes, setting the scene for another facedown between the old nemeses.

What is “Halloween Kills” about?
Picking up where 2018’s ‘Halloween’ left off, “Halloween Kills” kicks off with the revelation that masked serial killer Michael Myers is not, in fact, dead. Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) is in the hospital, injured from their last confrontation when she learns the news.
