Halloween Kills (2021) | Transcript

The saga of Michael Myers and Laurie Strode continues in the next thrilling chapter of the Halloween series.
Halloween Kills

Minutes after Laurie Strode (Curtis), her daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) left masked monster Michael Myers caged and burning in Laurie’s basement, Laurie is rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, believing she finally killed her lifelong tormentor.

But when Michael manages to free himself from Laurie’s trap, his ritual bloodbath resumes. As Laurie fights her pain and prepares to defend herself against him, she inspires all of Haddonfield to rise up against their unstoppable monster.

The Strode women join a group of other survivors of Michael’s first rampage who decide to take matters into their own hands, forming a vigilante mob that sets out to hunt Michael down, once and for all.

Michael. We were kids.


Was he one of those weirdo freaks who used to pluck the wings off butterflies when he was a kid?

Not that I ever saw.

He was just…

Just killed his sister when he was six years old?

Yeah. My mom used to make me go over to his house to play.

She felt bad. But he would just spend the whole time staring out of his sister’s bedroom window.

I always remember thinking, “The hell is he looking at out there?”

He was looking at Haddonfield.

MARION: You got this, Tommy!

MAN: Turn off the lights!

Any of you know the story of the Haddonfield Boogeyman?

Too young to give a shit? Too drunk to remember?

40 years ago, a madman escaped from a mental hospital.

It was the night before Halloween, and three teenage girls were walking home from Haddonfield High.

They had sightings of a… a ghostlike figure creeping right through our town.

A man in a white mask.

Or was it more than a man?

He was watching them.

Before the night was over, three people would be murdered.

And in the house next door, there was a babysitter and a young boy and a young girl, and they were brutally attacked by this stalker who had a power beyond any mortal man.

My name is Tommy Doyle.

And I was that young boy.

So, please, join me in commemorating the victims and the survivors of Michael Myers.

(whistling, whooping)

Thank you.

Now, we have, uh, the lovely Miss Lindsey Wallace.

Her babysitter, Annie Brackett, was executed that night.

(muffled scream)

TOMMY: And we have Miss Marion Chambers.

She survived an assault.


We have Lonnie Elam.

Lonnie survived a face-to-face encounter.


It’s Halloween night in Haddonfield.

When terror’s supposed to be fun.

When we hide behind masks and we pretend we aren’t what we are.

Is he real?

Who knows?

Who’s next?

Maybe not tonight, maybe not tomorrow, but the Boogeyman is coming for me.

And he’s coming for you.

But he’s not gonna get us.

Not this time.

Because we will never succumb to fear.

This is for you, Laurie.

(cheering, applause)

Wherever you are.

KAREN: We’re almost at the hospital, Mom.

Take deep breaths. Deep breaths.

We’re almost there. We’re almost at the hospital.

LAURIE: I always thought Michael Myers was flesh and blood, just like you and me, but a mortal man could not have survived what he’s lived through.

The more he kills, the more he transcends into something else impossible to defeat.

Even when we can’t see him.

You can’t defeat it with brute force.
