September is almost over, which means October is here, which means it’s officially spooky season. And what better way to ring in said season than with one of the icons of Halloween? Enter Jamie Lee Curtis in the final trailer for Halloween Kills, coming to theaters and streaming only on Peacock, October 15. The franchise’s latest installment is the 12th in a series that has come to encapsulate the true spirit of the night it’s named after.
Halloween Kills will take up from where the ’78 classic ended, despite the countless sequels that followed it, and will show audiences Laurie Strode’s ongoing struggle with the trauma of her battle with Michael Myers. The cast of the new installment includes Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Will Patton, Thomas Mann, and Anthony Michael Hall. The film is also directed by David Gordon Green and is written by Scott Teems, Danny McBride, and David Gordon Green from John Carpenter’s incredible characters.
Back in 2018, Green’s Halloween, starring Curtis, killed at the box office (see what we did there?). It’s no surprise the franchise, like its main antagonist, is alive and still kicking, considering its many successes at the box office. Alongside the final trailer for Halloween Kills, Peacock also dropped the details of their dope new contest.
Per the announcement:
Starting today, you can enter for your chance to win a trip for two to Los Angeles to be “killed” by Michael Myers (aka The Shape) on the set of your own Hollywood production. To be the lucky victim, record a video explaining why you are the biggest fan of the franchise and include your best horror scream.
Post the video on either TikTok tagging @UniversalPics, or Instagram tagging @HalloweenMovie and include the hashtags #HalloweenKills and #FaceTheShapeContest in the copy of your post. The contest will end on 9/26 at 11:59pm and the winner will be notified on 9/27. The shoot will take place on 10/5 in Los Angeles. A social graphic promoting the contest is attached for you to share with your fans and the full set of rules can be found here.
John Carpenter first blessed us in 1978 with the initial installment of Michael Myer’s horrendous tale, and since then we’ve either donned the mask, flooded the theaters, or squirmed on our couches from the goings on of Halloween.
Halloween Kills is in theaters and streaming only on Peacock October 15!
