Perk of horror films? They are often easy to film. And that is the case with Halloween Kills, the first of two planned sequels to the 2018 revival Halloween that was in itself a direct sequel to the original 1978 film. After a mere 36 days of production, the film will now go into post-production and additional filming. While it was originally believed that Halloween Kills would film back-to-back with a third film, titled Halloween Ends, it turns out that each film will be completed separately with a gap in between each film’s production. Check out the Twitter post below confirming the end of production:
That’s a wrap on #HalloweenKills! It’s been an amazing journey and I can’t wait for you to see what happens next in Haddonfield when this comes out in October 2020. Now, it’s time for me to get back home… pic.twitter.com/vpguqDL0w0
