The First Trailer for 'Halloween Ends' Teases the Final Showdown
David Gordon Green revived the original slasher franchise, Halloween, back in 2018 in a big way. The reboot ignored everything but the original John Carpenter film, bringing back Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) and having her, her daughter (Judy Greer), and her granddaughter (Andi Matichak) face off against the return of the unstoppable Michael Myers (James Jude Courtney / Nick Castle). After a botched attempt at killing the masked monster and a new massacre taking place in last year's sequel Halloween Kills, the stage is now set for a true final showdown between the survivors and Michael.
"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 (Rohan Campbell), 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."
Carpenter, who has been involved with the new trilogy, has said that this final chapter is a genuine departure from the previous two films made by Green. This will be the last Halloween film to come out under Universal and Blumhouse. Both Will Patton and Kyle Richards will also be reprising their roles as Deputy Frank Hawkins and Lindsey Wallace, respectively.
After 45 years, the most acclaimed, revered horror franchise in film history reaches its epic, terrifying conclusion as Laurie Strode faces off for the last time against the embodiment of evil, Michael Myers, in a final confrontation unlike any captured on-screen before. Only one of them will survive. Check out the trailer below.
'Halloween Ends' comes to theaters October 14th 2022.
