Halloween Ends Review

Halloween Ends is the final showdown between Laurie Strode and Michael Myers.

Director David Gordon Green and Danny McBride laughably try to implement substance by adding a Carrie element to the storyline.

Unfortunately, it effectively takes away from the build-up (and promotions) of an epic final showdown between Laurie Strode and Michael Myers.

As a result, Halloween Ends consists of plenty of filler and brand-new characters that no one cares about.

An enormous chunk of the film revolves around Corey Cunningham (Rohan Campbell) and Allyson’s (Andi Matichak) relationship. Sadly, none of this storyline adds a thing to Ends‘ storyline.

The movie wants to convince you that it’s a critical element as Corey is written as this good kid who gets bullied enough to become a killer, a la Carrie.

At the same time, this also keeps Laurie and Michael Myers on the sidelines since they’re barely supporting characters here.

Overall, Halloween Ends is a disappointing finale to a beloved slasher franchise. There will be those who enjoy Ends‘ attempt to change the status quo of slasher films.
