Blumhouse Productions and Universal Pictures has revealed a new teaser for the highly-anticipated Halloween Kills showing Michael Myers’ bloody return to the screen!
Opening on the town of Haddonfield, Laurie’s voice warns that Michael Myers was back for blood, and The Shape is shown picking up his iconic mask. From there the violence escalates as Halloween Kills delivers on just that. Plenty of blood shooting out of victims as well as familiar faces such as Allyson (Andi Matichak). And none other than actress Nancy Stephens, who is playing Marion Chambers for the whopping fourth time in Halloween Kills. A hand smashes the glass on her car’s window, in a sequence highlighting her fateful encounter with Michael Myers back in 1978.

The story goes that on Halloween night, when he was only six, little Michael Myers killed his sister Judith with a butcher knife. He then spent the next 15 years institutionalized, and his parents died in a car crash, leaving behind his baby sister named Cynthia.

The definition of Scream Queen states that any actress who has become associated with horror films, either through an appearance in a notable entry in the genre as a frequent victim or through constant appearances as the female protagonist is a scream queen.
