Horror fans head to the cinemas or turn their living rooms into makeshift cinemas for the epic conclusion of David Gordon Greens Halloween franchise with Halloween ends.
Green’s three-parter began with Halloween in 2018, where we saw Jamie Lee Curtis, fan favorite Laurie Strode preparing to face Michael Myers again. Her emotionally charged confrontation with the killer began in 1978, and as the sole survivor of his vicious killing spree, she has carried much pain throughout her life.
That pain was the driving force for her to go up against him in Green’s trilogy, and with a title like Halloween endsHer fans are wondering if this is really the end of the off-kilter Michael Myers. Speaking to Indie Wire, Gordon explained what this ominous title means for the killer’s future.
“I think evil doesn’t die, it changes form. And that can become something to really think about, the negativity that might be greeted with at some point in your day. If you want to take that and act on it and tighten it up and then pass it on to the next person, you can do that. It can be as contagious as you want or allow it to be. And when you say, “I’m going to welcome this hardship, this tragedy, and then I’m going to turn that around, and I’m going to find the lesson and the learning and the misunderstanding or the miscommunication or the love in that lost moment and turn it into something more meaningful and more positive things are there too.”
The form-shifting evil makes sense, not just for this series, but for horror as a whole. When a villain takes off their mask or puts their weapon aside, isn’t there always someone lurking in the shadows ready to pick it up again? That’s what keeps the fans going. So we know that terrifying villains in scary movies and stories always have a future.
We won’t give away spoilers Halloween ends here, but Green’s testimony ensures that no matter what happens to Myers at the end of this trilogy, someone will be willing to pick up the mantle.
Halloween ends is currently in cinemas and is also available on Peacock.
