Halloween Kills | Kyle Richards and Anthony Michael Hall On The Return Of Original Characters [Roundtable Interview]

We are hours away from the release of Universal Pictures, Halloween Kills. This is the sequel to the 2018 feature film Halloween film that connects to the original iconic horror/slasher 1978 film by John Carpender. Decades later, Michael Myers is still a lethal threat that is a danger to all in Haddonfield.

Part of what makes Halloween Kills special is its attention to the past. We have some returning cast members from the original film. As well as characters from the past that have been re-cast. First, we have the obvious Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie who we had already seen in the previous film. Then we also have the return as Kyle Richards as Lindsey and Nancy Stephens as Marion. The character of Tommy Doyle is also in the film but has been recast by Anthony Michael Hall.

In Halloween Kills we will see how the trauma of the original attacks has affected these characters. To the point where they have formed a support group. But what happens when they find out that Michael Myers returns? Will they flee in horror or band together to try and bring down evil once in for all?

Ahead of its release, LRM Online participated in a round table discussion with Kyle Richards and Anthony Michael Hall. During the discussion, they talk about their experience on Halloween Kills. Richards even goes into detail about returning to the big screen. We also learn more about Tommy and what is motivating him in the film. It’s a cool conversation that you can check out down below!

Here is the synopsis for Halloween Kills

Minutes after Laurie Strode (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.

Halloween Kills is in theaters this Friday, October 15th. Also available to stream exclusively on Peacock.
