This is a battle that has been taking place for over 40 years. Perhaps the most famous and infamous feud in horror movies. Because Laurie Strode, always incarnated by Jamie Lee Curtis, and Michael Myers have been mortal enemies since they got face to face in the John Carpenter cult classic Halloween (1978).
The saga got rebooted a few years ago with Halloween (2018), where the immortal evil masked figure went after Strode’s family, and was followed by Halloween Kills (2021), where terror spread again when it was discovered that he was still alive. Now it is time for the final chapter of this sequel trilogy; now it is the time for Halloween Ends (2022).
In this new movie, four years after the events of Halloween Kills (2021), Laurie is living with her granddaughter Allyson 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, 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.
As in the other titles of this new trilogy, David Gordon Green is the director of the movie. He has also been the writer of the co-screenplay together with Chris Bernier. John Carpenter is the executive producer of the film.
As it couldn’t be otherwise, Jamie Lee Curtis is back as Laurie Strode in a cast that also includes Will Patton, Kyle Richards, Andi Matichak, Stephanie McIntyre, and Nick Castle and James Jude Courtney portraying Myers.
Universal Pictures, Miramax, and Blumhouse are producing in association with Rough House Pictures. Halloween Kills (2021) is scheduled for release on October 14, 2022.
