That film did so properly on the field workplace that it spawned two sequels — 2021’s Halloween Kills and this 12 months’s Halloween Ends, which is meant to be the ultimate movie within the 44-year franchise. And whether it is, within the reality, the final Halloween film we’ll ever get (it in all probability received’t be — let’s be actual), then we received’t complain. Halloween Ends concluded the franchise on a excessive observe and gave Jamie Lee Curtis‘ iconic last lady Laurie Strode the ending she deserves.

Halloween Ends begins with a really well-crafted chilly open. On Halloween 2019, babysitter Corey (Rohan Campbell) watches a younger boy whereas the boy’s mother and father attend a celebration down the road. Corey and the boy have enjoyable watching scary films collectively, however the night time takes a terrifying flip when the boy dies from a horrible fall and Corey’s blamed for it.

Three years later, in present-day Haddonfield, Laurie is writing a e book, dwelling along with her granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak), and truly having fun with life. Michael clearly killed her daughter (Judy Greer) 4 years in the past (in Halloween Kills), however he hasn’t been seen since.

The film delivers fairly a curveball that we didn’t see coming (Corey turns into a follower of Michael’s), and whereas we type of beloved it, it was fairly a threat to tackle one thing so heavy simply earlier than the curtain closed. However if you happen to ask us, it paid off ultimately. The kills are memorable, Kyle Richards returns (once more) as Lindsey Wallace, there’s respect for the franchise at massive (even some nods to Halloween III: Season Of The Witch), and Laurie’s last battle with Michael will go away you cheering one second and gasping the following. It might not be the strongest entry within the long-standing franchise, however Halloween Ends is now one among our favourite Halloween films.
