David Gordon Green’s Halloween Kills was due out later this fall but due to the pandemic, and constant shifting of most movie productions, the film has suffered a fate we were hoping wouldn’t come true.
In a joint statement from David Gordon Green and John Carpenter, the team behind Halloween Kills confirmed that the film will unfortunately have to be postponed by a whole year. Now being released on October 15, 2021. The creators promise that this is to ensure the largest amount of people can enjoy the film together and even go as far to fulfill an IMAX presentation of the new slasher film. It was an inevitability as the pandemic continues to increase in several hot spots around the world, while other places adapt to new social and physical norms and safety measures. It was the right move but it still stings for horror fans.
