Finally, a brand new Halloween film is here. Halloween Kills picks up after Laurie Strode, her daughter Karen and granddaughter Allyson left the killer Michael Myers burning in the basement.
The trio believed that the monster was dead, but somehow he managed to escape. Now they must team up with survivors of Michael’s first rampage to stop him, once and for all.
The horror film is out now both in cinemas and on the NBC streaming service,
Peacock – which currently is only available in the US. If you’re in the UK and are wondering how to watch it both in cinemas and at home, then we have everything you need to know.
When does Halloween Kills release?
Halloween Kills is out now – you can get hyped with the official trailer below:
Whilst it’s not impossible to get access to Halloween Kills on
Peacock in the UK, it is quite difficult. You’ll need a good VPN, either an iPhone or Android device and a PayPal account. It’s a similar method to what we use for watching
HBO Max from abroad.
The first thing you’ll need to do is choose your VPN. There’s lots of options out there, but our top recommendations are
ExpressVPN – all offer competitive pricing, good performance and a decent range of servers.
During testing, I noticed that the Play Store did not change to the US version, even when creating a new account.
The way to get round this is by connecting to a VPN on the PC, signing into the
Google Play Store US website, searching for the Peacock app and sending it to your phone (whilst still connected to the VPN).
We have had reports of people not being able to install US streaming apps on iOS as the app store forces users to register their payment details within the app store, and doesn’t accept UK PayPal if you try to register with this account.
If this happens to you, we recommend purchasing US App Store credit via a digital gift card – which can be added as a US payment option.
This can be bought from places such as
Amazon US, though there are other retailers available – you’ll need a website that allows you to pay with UK bank details.
If you set your email address as the recipient, the code to redeem the money will be sent to your inbox. When you come to add the payment information, select ‘redeem gift card or code’, and you should be able to add the money as credit on your account.
With this, you should then be able to sign up for a Peacock account to watch Halloween Kills – and you should be able to change your payment information back to your UK PayPal via the website to avoid having to pay for a new gift card every single time.
Will Halloween Kills release on UK VOD services?
Halloween Kills won’t be getting a simultaneous UK streaming release once it hits Peacock. It likely won’t be available to rent/buy until at least a few months after its initial cinematic debut.
