Over the course of Hollywood’s illustrious history, a litany of horror franchises have permeated pop culture. Arguably none of them have been as successful as John Carpenter’s 1970’s classic Halloween however, with the film’s iconic villain Michael Myers serving to haunt the nightmares of unsuspecting moviegoers well beyond the original film’s shelf life. So much so that the franchise has been rebooted several times, most recently in 2018 by esteemed director David Gordon Green. Now that reboot is set to finish in remarkable fashion with the release of Halloween Ends this weekend, and that film is already receiving rave reviews from critics and fans alike.
The Halloween franchise has been a success for the better part of half of a century now and Gordon Green’s reboot has become arguably the most successful iteration of it since the 1978 original. Kicked off in 2018, the latest revival of the Halloween franchise has been lauded by moviegoers around the globe due to its originality amidst a time when reboots are lacking in that regard considerably. Now that franchise is reaching its conclusion with the release of the third film Halloween Ends this weekend, and it seems like the franchise is receiving the proper treatment it deserves. Franchise star Jamie Lee Curtis is set to bring fans some closure to fans with the release of this film as she goes head to head with Michael Myers one last time and bring an end to the havoc he has spent several decades creating, with director David Gordon Green adding that he believes that “we are saying goodbye to Jamie playing Laurie in [this] universe.” We’ll avoid spoiling any of the secrets Green and Curtis might have in store for this film though, but you can see the trailer for Halloween Ends below to get you excited to see what should be a historic film set to release this weekend.
Few horror franchises if any have seen as much success as Halloween, and Halloween Ends is set to take that a step further. Green and Curtis have seemingly put their all into ensuring the franchise ends on a high note and from the sound of it, it seems they’ve done a good job doing exactly that. Moviegoers can decide for themselves however, with Halloween Ends premiering in theaters this weekend.
