“Halloween Ends”: A Not So Thrilling End

“Halloween Ends” marks the end of a recent “Halloween” trilogy after the sequel to the original “Halloween” film was released in 2018. 

“Halloween Ends” follows Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), Allyson (Andi Matichak), and a new character, Corey Cunningham (Rohan Campbell). The film begins with the introduction of Corey, and how he accidentally murdered a kid he was babysitting. This same kid, Jeremy (Jaxon Goldenberg), locked Corey in a closet and stood right outside before Corey kicked the door open.

Brief Summary

Flash forward again, and Corey finds himself being bullied by a group of four high school students. After an altercation with the group, they push him over the edge of a bridge where he lays unconscious. He wakes up in the sewers and finds Michael Myers (James Jude Courtney), but Corey manages to escape. After his encounter with Myers, Corey begins feeling the urge to go on a murdering spree, which he soon does.

Even though Michael Myers is still alive in the film, it was a surprise twist to see another character infected by evil. Though Myers did make an appearance to kill some of his own victims, that did not happen until the end of the film. It’s also unsurprising to see that Corey, himself, fell victim to Myers before Laurie and Allyson’s final confrontation with Myers. Laurie gets the best of Myers by stabbing him multiple times before gathering the City of Haddonfield. After gathering citizens of Haddonfield, Laurie dumps Myers’ body at the City dump to dispose of it for good.


A rather anticlimactic end to the “Halloween” trilogy, “Halloween Ends” ends the battle between Laurie and Michael. “Halloween Ends” could have had a better ending and better storytelling, but is still worth the time to watch for being just under two hours.
