Halloween Kills is a highly anticipated release for 2021. Is there a chance that one of Nick Castle’s big scenes might end up on the cutting room floor?

Halloween Kills won’t be released until Oct. 15, 2021. While fans aren’t exactly thrilled with having to wait another year to find out what happens next in the Laurie Strode and Michael Myers saga, their curiosity was satiated last month when John Carpenter released a teaser trailer.

Recently, Nick Castle appeared on The Thing with Two Heads podcast to discuss the production. According to Cinema Blend, during the course of his conversation with hosts Sean Clark and Christopher Nelson, the actor admitted that he was concerned that a significant scene featuring the Shape might end up on the cutting room floor.

So, what could David Gordon Green and Danny McBride have in store for everyone’s favorite stalker? Apparently, we will have to wait to see Halloween Kills for that query to be answered.

Castle was very careful not to reveal any important plot points. However, we’re still very curious about this particular sequence featuring the actor/director.

Unlike Halloween 2018 which focused solely on Laurie and her family, the second installment in Blumhouse’s continuation of Carpenter’s mythology involves certain residents of Haddonfield that have survived Michael’s rampages.

It sounds like they band together for one last stand against the Shape that has been terrorizing their town for years. Unfortunately, we will probably have to wait until closer to the release date of Halloween Kills before any new information comes to light.


More than likely, a trailer will be released before Oct. 2021, that may provide a few answers to questions that fans have about the direction of the film. So, stay tuned…
