Halloween Kills Producer Jason Blum On Why Sequels Are Difficult [Interview]

In 2018, Blumhouse surpassed expectations with "Halloween," David Gordon Green's sequel to John Carpenter's 1978 slasher classic.

Not just a hit, but more importantly, a well-liked return to the world of Laurie Strode and Michael Myers. Three years later, the horror icons return in "Halloween Kills." "Halloween" is one of the bigger Blumhouse titles. ...
