Judy Greer, one of the stars of the next Halloween kills, reveals the scene she found the most terrifying to film. The film follows that of David Gordon Green Halloween, which revived all of the films in the franchise to act as a direct sequel to John Carpenter’s 1978 original. The 2018 reboot saw the return of Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, the franchise’s last original daughter. Greer played Laurie’s daughter Karen alongside her castmates Will Patton, Andi Matichak, Nick Castle and Toby Huss.
Halloween kills sees the return of Curtis, Greer and a few others, with Green again behind the camera. The film should resume a few moments later Halloween ended, continuing the same night of Michael Myers’ murderous reign of terror. The big change for Karen de Greer comes from the fact that she didn’t believe in her mother’s paranoia in the previous film and has now experienced Myers’ return, changing the distant dynamic between the two. This newly strengthened bond will only deepen the terror they find themselves in, both for the characters and for the Halloween kills public.
Speaking with Bloody disgusting, Greer mentions a scene in Halloween kills who sees Karen accompany Laurie to the hospital. Eventually, the hospital erupts into chaos, with a crowd of people running around and bumping into Karen and Laurie, who are stuck in a hallway. As Greer said, “the scariest part was for real” because even when the heckling is choreographed, it can still be a tumultuous ordeal. Even with what she knew before the shoot, Greer couldn’t help but feel terrified inches from being stepped on:
I think the scariest part was for real when we were stuck in the hallway, me and Jamie, and the crowd was chasing us, and they were running past us and shoving us and pushing us around without even noticing or listening to us. It was really overwhelming and really scary. I was like, my God, this is terrifying! It’s a movie, and people are playing; I can’t even imagine being in the middle of this sort of thing for real.
While the scene Greer mentioned is full of chaos, it might not be what fans would have guessed as the most terrifying for her to film. It was clearly intense, but most probably would have expected Michael to play a more direct role in the moment. However, horror movies can be just as terrifying for actors to shoot, and often more so in certain scenes that may not be so scary for audiences. As Greer said herself, “I can’t even imagine being in the middle of this sort of thing for real. “
Halloween kills is about to have a lot of heartbreaking moments. A petition was even launched recently to request the removal of a scene in Halloween kills which stages the massacre of firefighters. While the scene in question is unlikely to be removed from the film, it shows that the sequel is already making waves for its intense content. It also won’t be the last time audiences will see Michael, as another sequel, either. Halloween ends, is already planned for next year. For the public eager to see the next gruesome chapter, Halloween kills premieres Oct. 15, both in theaters and streaming on Peacock.
