The movie Halloween Kills from 2021 is a horror film directed by David Gordon Green and starring Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, and Andi Matichak. It is the twelfth installment in the Halloween franchise and the sequel to the 2018 film, Halloween. The plot picks up right where the previous movie left off, with Laurie Strode and her family, including her daughter Karen and granddaughter Allyson, trying to survive the night as Michael Myers, the masked killer, goes on a killing spree in the town of Haddonfield, Illinois. However, when it seems like they have finally incapacitated him, the town's residents decide to take matters into their own hands to eliminate the threat once and for all.

The movie features an ensemble cast that includes several familiar faces from the previous films, as well as some new characters. Jamie Lee Curtis reprises her role as Laurie Strode, while Judy Greer plays her daughter Karen and Andi Matichak plays her granddaughter Allyson. Also returning are Charles Cyphers as Sheriff Brackett, Nancy Stephens as Nurse Marion, and Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace, a character from the original film.

The film is notable for its intense and bloody violence, with Michael Myers rampaging through the town and killing anyone he comes across. The kills are particularly brutal, with the filmmakers going for a more graphic and visceral approach compared to the earlier movies in the franchise. The film also explores the psychological trauma that Laurie and her family have been grappling with for years, as they try to come to terms with the events of the previous movie.

Aside from the horror and violence, the movie also touches upon themes of revenge, vigilante justice, and community solidarity. The town's residents band together to track down Michael and put an end to his reign of terror, but their actions have unintended consequences that escalate the violence and chaos in the town. The film also shows how the trauma of past events can lead to misguided decisions and cause rifts in relationships, as Laurie and her family struggle to overcome their generational trauma.

Overall, Halloween Kills is a brutally intense and suspenseful horror movie that will please fans of the franchise looking for more gore and scares. It also manages to flesh out the characters of Laurie, Karen, and Allyson, adding more depth and nuance to their relationships and motivations. The movie ends on a cliffhanger, leaving audiences eagerly anticipating the next installment.
