Halloween Kills star Anthony Michael Hall joined us for a live chat about the movie on Instagram. We talked horror with the veteran actor of TV’s The Dead Zone and most famously in films The Breakfast Club, Weird Science, Sixteen Candles, and National Lampoon’s Vacation.
Hall stars as Tommy Doyle in the latest entry into the Halloween canon. The story picks up minutes after the events of director David Gordon Green’s 2018 film, Halloween. Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) is rushed to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, believing she has finally killed her life-long tormentor. But Michael Myers escaped the fiery cage she left him in and has resumed his bloodbath. With daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak), Laurie joins a group of Michael’s survivors to hunt down the monster once and for all.
The film is written by Scott Teems, Danny McBride, and Green and is based on characters created by John Carpenter and Debra Hill.
