Halloween Ends (2022). Halloween Ends: Directed by David Gordon Green. With Jamie Lee Curtis, Kyle Richards, Andi Matichak, Will Patton. The saga of Michael Myers and Laurie Strode comes to a spine-chilling climax in this final installment of this trilogy.
“No spoilers here. But, as tradition, the third installment goes off on a tangent. It opens with undoubtably the best pumpkin title sequence, and a thudding mix of Carpenteru0026#39;s theme.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThe attraction of the final three movies to me is Jamie Lee Curtis. And although I feel sheu0026#39;s stretching it a little to claim in interviews this film is all about relatable trauma (itu0026#39;s still a modern horror with modern annoyances), there are elements of this and the roundup is somewhat satisfying. Not because it is classical Halloween as hoped, but because as producer and overseer she may have delivered the ultimate f-you to the anti-hero worshiping fanboys of this franchise. In a fashion: trauma dealt with.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eOf the 1978 original, Richard Combs said it was u0026quot;one of the cinemau0026#39;s most perfectly engineered devices for saying u0026#39;Boo!u0026#39;u0026quot;. Thatu0026#39;s spot on, and nothing beyond the original really matches. The moment Myers steps beyong those first 91 minutes, with any attempted explaination, motivation or widening, the illusion evaporates. Today the suspense and atmosphere is replaced with an apparent need for seeing people stabbed many, many, many times. Weirdly this might be more to meet the limited appetites of an attention deprived modern audience, rather than anything to do with the original.u003cbr/u003eu003cbr/u003eThere was no blood shown in 1978, and the ghost story worked well in the first telling.”
