It’s not a stretch to say that now multiple generations have enjoyed the Halloween franchise during its ups and downs (it’s been 45 years since John Carpenter’s original Halloween film). So when the final movie of David Gordon Green’s reboot/revisit trilogy promises that Halloween Ends, well, I’d have to see it to believe it. This will supposedly be Jamie Lee Curtis’ final appearance as Laurie Strode, but I’m not convinced that the character of Michael Myers will ever meet a tidy end.
SYNOPSIS: Four years after the events of last year’s Halloween Kills, Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) is living with her granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) and is finishing writing her memoir. Michael Myers hasn’t been seen since. Laurie, after allowing the specter of Michael to determine and drive her reality for decades, has decided to liberate herself from fear and rage and embrace life. But when a young man, Corey Cunningham (Rohan Campbell; The Hardy Boys, Virgin River), is accused of killing a boy he was babysitting, it ignites a cascade of violence and terror that will force Laurie to finally confront the evil she can’t control, once and for all.
Halloween Ends is coming to theaters October 14, 2022.
