All three of the Universal's highly anticipated horror films have to reschedule due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

On July 9, Universal Studios officially announced no positive and happy news for the movie nerds, that is, it will reschedule three horror film that are about to hit theaters. Because the COVID-19 translation situation is still complicated, the delay in releasing a movie title has led to a series of projects behind it that have to be delayed longer than expected.



The horror film produced by Jordan Peele (the director behind the success of Get Out and Us) was delayed by more than a month compared to the original screening on September 25, which falls on Halloween. Candyman tells of the mysterious murderer of the same name, a famous urban legend in which anyone can summon him by standing in front of a mirror and saying his name five times.


As a sequel to the 1992 classic, Candyman (2020) focuses on the life of artist Anthony McCoy (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) after he returns to live in Cabrini Green. From here, a series of rumors about the appearance of the murderer more and more, greatly affected the spirit of Anthony, forcing him to find the solution himself before things gradually lost control.

Candyman will officially premiere on October 16, 2020.

The Forever Purge


The audience should have been able to go to theaters on July 10 and enjoy the final part of the American Purge Day series. But because the COVID-19 epidemic caused movie theaters to shut down massively, Universal had no choice but to postpone the sensational thriller schedule The Forever Purge.

The Purge originated in 2013, so far has released four quality films, bringing huge revenue up to $ 446 million compared to a total budget of 35 million. As the name implies, the story in the simple series tells the US government that now announces the annual Purge Day, in which every crime including murder is legal within 12 hours.

Over the past 7 years, many innocent people have fallen, people's morality has become increasingly corrupt, and those with evil intentions have ascended to the throne and occupied absolute power. Soon, The Forever Purge promises to put an end to all the pain the government has caused to its people.

The Forever Purge officially premiered on July 9, 2021, which is still in America's National Week.

Halloween Kills & Halloween Ends


Because Candyman was pushed down in mid-October, it's not hard to understand when Halloween Kills will no longer debut at this year's Ghost Festival.

Halloween Kills is set right after the first part, now the family of Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) has left after setting fire to her house to kill Michael Myers. However, details at the end of the 2018 film show that Michael somehow escaped, and the pursuit is certainly still ongoing.

On July 9, Universal also released a teaser for Halloween Kills, in which Laurie Strode panicked and shouted so police cars would not go to her house to put out the fire because it would be unintentionally saving the life of a murderer your family has struggled to tame.

The official Halloween Kills teaser is released in 2021.

Halloween Kills officially has a new schedule on October 15, 2021, and of course the third Halloween Ends will also be moved to October 14, 2022.
