Will Michael Meyers be unmasked in ‘Halloween Kills’?
After years of being shot, stabbed, and burned to a crisp, do we really want to see what’s under the mask? Absolutely. In the latest teaser for the upcoming Halloween Kills, it seems that fans may finally get the chance to see the true (most likely hideous) face of Michael Myers.
Directed by David Gordon Green, Halloween Kills will follow the Strode family as they once again hunt down Michael Myers. Yet, the three women aren’t alone in their chase for the monstrous killer. Take a look at the newest teaser for Halloween Kills and what past franchise characters are making their long-awaited return.
Michael Myers unmasked?
The trailer teases at the possibility of Myers having his mask fully removed; his face openly revealed. This has only occurred once before in the original 1978 film and only for a single second. The maniac’s head has only been shown with his face concealed in other installments.
The childhood face of Michael Myers has been fully revealed numerous times not only in the original’s chilling opening sequence, but also in Rob Zombie’s Halloween (2007) rendition. However, Halloween Kills does not acknowledge the Zombie remakes and only works as a direct sequel to the first two John Carpenter Halloween films.
Who will return in Halloween Kills?
Of course, Jamie Lee Curtis will continue her iconic role as Laurie Strode. Alongside Curtis is her daughter & granddaughter played by Judy Greer and Andi Matichak. The teaser follows the three generations of Myers’ survivors who call on the whole town to team up and finally kill Michael Myers.
The new chapter will also bring back other survivors from the past including Lindsey Wallace who will once again be played by Kyle Richards. If you don’t remember, Lindsey Wallace was the little girl Laurie babysits and ultimately saves from the wrath of Michael Myers. Now, Lindsey Wallace is fully grown and ready to rid the vicious murderer from Haddonfield.
Another character returning in Halloween Kills is Marion Chambers, the nurse who first came face to face with Myers after he escaped the mental institution. Marion Chamber will be played by the original actress Nancy Stephens. Stephens was also featured in Halloween II and Halloween H20.
The original Michael Myers returns
Nick Castle, who played Myers in the original 1978 film, is once again reprising his role as the iconic masked killer. Although the majority of scenes in the 2018 sequel had stunt performer James Jude Courtney underneath the mask, Castle was and will be involved in Myer’s most pivotal scenes with Jamie Lee Curtis. Perhaps, Castle has returned for Michael Myer’s monumental unmasking.
James Jude Courtney was involved in every scene featuring Myers in the 2018 sequel, including those of Castle who provided Myer’s breathing sounds. Nick Castle described to the journalists on set that his role reprisal was more of a cameo appearance. Courtney referred to collaborating with Castle as an “honor”, while Castle described it as a “passing of the torch”.
On July 26th, 2019, it was confirmed that Nick Castle will return for the sequels to the 2018 film, Halloween Kills (2021) and Halloween Ends (2022) for some scenes as Michael Myers with James Jude Courtney again playing Myers for a majority of the films.
