Halloween Kills clip: Tommy Doyle returns, played by Anthony Michael Hall

by Natalie Kiser

Halloween Kills will be available to watch through the Peacock streaming service on October 15th, the same day the film will be reaching theatres – and it almost seems like Universal is determined to get the whole movie online before then. With all the trailers, TV spots, featurettes, and clips they’re releasing, a lot of fans have already seen a good chunk of the movie. Embedded above we have a clip that features franchise heroine Laurie Strode, played by Jamie Lee Curtis, interacting with the character Tommy Doyle (the kid Laurie was babysitting in the original Halloween), now played by Anthony Michael Hall. There are SPOILERS regarding the fates of other returning Halloween characters in the dialogue they exchange, so don’t watch unless you don’t mind knowing what’s going to happen to a couple people.

David Gordon Green’s Halloween 2018 (watch it HERE) ignored all of the other  Halloween  movies except for John Carpenter’s original (which you can watch HERE). Directed by Green from a screenplay he wrote with Danny McBride and Scott Teems, Halloween Kills is set on the same night as its predecessor.

Minutes after Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), her daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) left masked monster Michael Myers caged and burning in Laurie’s basement, Laurie is rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, believing she finally killed her lifelong tormentor. But when Michael manages to free himself from Laurie’s trap, his ritual bloodbath resumes. As Laurie fights her pain and prepares to defend herself against him, she inspires all of Haddonfield to rise up against their unstoppable monster. The Strode women join a group of other survivors of Michael’s first rampage who decide to take matters into their own hands, forming a vigilante mob that sets out to hunt Michael down, once and for all. Evil dies tonight.

Laurie, Tommy, Karen, and Allyson aren’t the only characters returning from previous Halloween movies. Also in the cast are Robert Longstreet as Lonnie Elam (a character from the original film), Dylan Arnold reprising the role of Allyson’s boyfriend / Lonnie’s son Cameron, Jibrail Nantambu as Halloween 2018 scene stealer Julian, Nancy Stephens back in her Halloween and Halloween II role of Marion Chambers, Charles Cyphers back as Brackett, and Kyle Richards returning to the role of Lindsey Wallace. Child actress Victoria Paige Watkins is in there as a new character named Christy, and James Jude Courtney is playing Michael Myers for the second time. Original Michael Myers performer Nick Castle also has a one scene cameo.

Green, McBride, and Curtis also serve as executive producers on Halloween Kills alongside Couper Samuelson and John Carpenter. Jason Blum produced with Malek Akkad.
