They envisioned a straight sequel to the 1978 film, which would have started a retcon of all prior sequels. Original cast member Jamie Lee Curtis returned to reprise her role as Laurie, Michael’s older sister, still tormented by the terrible events 40 years later. As a result of the film’s critical success, a direct sequel, “Halloween Kills,” will be released on October 15, 2021.
However, Green and McBride’s “Halloween” franchise will continue beyond the release of the forthcoming sequel. In July 2019, it was announced that the “Halloween Ends” trilogy would conclude with a third film. While horror fans anxiously await the next episode, there are still many mysteries about the third and final picture. So far, the following is all we know about “Halloween Ends.”
As a result, returning director David Gordon Green and co-writer Danny McBride and Scott Team hardly made the intelligent decision to advance the story. Whereas last year’s Halloween focused on how the original ’78 tragedy impacted Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), this year’s flick goes back and forth in time to show how the village of Haddonfield was affected. Compelling interpretations of powerful themes arise, such as regret in survivors, mob mentality, the macabre attraction surrounding crime scenes.
It’s easy to lose interest in scary movies when the protagonists make stupid choices that put them in peril. On the other hand, Halloween Kills raises the fascinating possibility that these victims are queuing up to be cannon fodder to process their darkest anxieties. It’s easier to meet a tragic end than to spend your whole life in fear. Although Michael Myers only murdered a few people in the first film directed by John Carpenter, he’s become far more deadly throughout the years. The world’s most nimble senior annihilates Haddonfield’s residents, even if the film’s most shocking fatality is one he has only indirect responsibility for.
