As Halloween weekend creeps up on us, Blumhouse has dropped a brief teaser trailer to get the blood flowing.

Having pushed back the release a whole year from October 2020 to October 2021 due to the pandemic, the latest tease features the return of some familiar faces.

Previously, both John Carpenter and the film’s director David Gordon Green had penned a letter talking about the delay:

“We write this to you heartbroken over the fact that the delay of our film is even a discussion, but if there’s one thing that a career in the film industry has prepared us for, it is the unexpected. Over the past few weeks, our film family has looked at the forecast of theatrical exhibition with obvious concern. We have discussed and struggled with how best to present “Halloween Kills” to the loyal fans around the world, as well as the new audience we hope to invite to this experience.

David Gordon Green returns to helm the film which sees Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, Andi Matichak and Robert Longstreet returning along with original 1978 actors Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace and Nancy Stephens as Nurse Marion Chambers. Anthony Michael Hall takes over the role of Tommy Doyle.
