Halloween Kills has given Michael Myers his highest body count ever, with more than two dozen people meeting their untimely end due to the killer. You can see the trailer here:
The latest movie in the franchise was released yesterday (15 October), and picks up where 2018's Halloween left off.
It does not disappoint fans of gore, with Michael Myers back to his murderous best.
In total, Halloween Kills has more than 30 deaths, with 25 of these caused directly or indirectly by Myers. This puts the movie's body count at the top of the 13-movie spanning franchise.
Comicbook.com has crunched the numbers and shown Myers latest rampage smashes the body counts of other movie killers, including Jigsaw's 22 in Saw 3D and Jason Voorhees' 21 killings in Jason X.
In fact, Myers kill count is only beaten by Victor Crowley in Hatchet III.
Myers is no stranger to staggering body counts, having previously worked his way through 18 victims in Rob Zombie's Halloween remake and 17 in Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers.
Halloween Kills follows on from the 2018 movie, as well as the first ever Halloween film, released all the way back in 1978, but ignores all the sequels in between.
Speaking about the latest movie, director David Gordon Green told Total Film: "If the first film was somewhat retelling the origin of Myers and getting us up to speed with where Laurie had been all those years, then part two is about the outrage of Haddonfield.
"Mob Rules was our working title for the film. It's about a community that is united by outrage, and divided in how to deal with evil."
Halloween Kills will be followed by a third movie - Halloween Ends - to finish off Green's trilogy.
Green teased fans of the franchise with some hints of where the trilogy will end.
He told Total Film: "It's a very different movie than Kills, and both Halloweens.
"The script feels very fun. For me, it was essential to say, 'Here's a conclusive episode to my trilogy.' I'm trying to bring closure to my 'Laurie Strode versus Michael Myers' storytelling."
Halloween Kills is out in cinemas now.
