It seems that Michael Myers’ most violent days are ahead of him. This, says director and co-author David Gordon Green, who promises that Halloween Kills will be the most violent scene in his career. So at least we’re set for something more violent than in the previous 2018. And strangely enough, in this case, more violent than anything else in the 2008 Stoner comedy, Pineapple Express.
David Gordon Green attended an online watch party for Halloween 2018 this weekend. Green took over the Blumhouse Twitter account for the duration and gave insights during the film. During the rather violent bathroom scene in which Michael Myers brutally kills the two journalists who want to make a story about him, including the now notorious teeth, Green said it was the most violent scene he has staged since Pineapple Express. In front Halloween kills, This is. Here’s what Green had to say.
“This is the most violent scene I’ve made since Pineapple Express, but then Halloween kills …”
Even though Pineapple Express is a comedy in which there are some pretty violent moments. The whole highlight is a massive shootout that becomes graphic at certain moments. So this is not a bad basis for comparison. Before David Gordon Green joined this legendary franchise, he was best known for his comedic exploits, such as: Your Highness and the HBO comedies East and down and Vice President. Andi Matichak, who plays Laurie Strode’s granddaughter Allyson, says the upcoming sequel will give the word violence a new meaning to fuel the fire.
“Violence takes on a whole new meaning in Halloween kills”
Unfortunately, none of them shed specific light on the scene in question, but given the fact that very little has been said about the film so far, this makes sense. In our interview earlier this year with co-author Scott Teems, he described it as the “bigger, worse, meaner” version of the previous film. Jason Blum, head of Blumhouse Productions, also called it a “big movie” with a “very big” screen. The common thread here seems to be that the filmmakers have decided to expand the sequel.
David Gordon Green confirmed during the watch party that they are still working on the trailer, as well as a release strategy for the film, given the current developments in the industry. So we have to wait at least a little bit longer to get an impression of this violence. However, Green confirmed that the sequel will return to Myers’ house as a kind of joke. Halloween kills is currently scheduled for October 16. Another sequel that will end this version of the franchise, Halloween Ends, is slated for release on October 15, 2021.
