Halloween Ends is a 2022 American slasher film that is the sequel to Halloween Kills (2021), the thirteenth installment in the Halloween franchise, and the final film in the trilogy of sequels that started with the 2018 film, which directly follows the 1978 film. Directed by David Gordon Green and co-written by Green, Danny McBride, Paul Brad Logan and Chris Bernier, the film stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Andi Matichak, Rohan Campbell, Will Patton, Kyle Richards, and James Jude Courtney. The film revolves around Corey Cunningham, a young man who falls in love with Laurie Strode’s granddaughter while a series of events, including crossing paths with Michael Myers, upend his life and render him a murderous outcast.
Before the release of Halloween in 2018, McBride confirmed that he and Green had intended to pitch two films that would be shot back-to-back, but decided against it, waiting to see the reaction to the first film. Following the success of the first film, in July 2019, the film’s title was announced along with Halloween Kills. Green intended to give each film in the trilogy its own unique theme, Halloween Ends being a love story; John Carpenter described the film as a “departure” from its predecessors. After being delayed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, principal photography took place in Georgia between January and March 2022, with re-shoots taking place in mid-2022.
Halloween Ends premiered at Beyond Fest in Los Angeles on October 11, 2022, and was theatrically released in the United States on October 14, 2022, by Universal Pictures. The film started streaming simultaneously on paid tiers of Peacock for 60 days. It received mixed reviews from critics, who criticized its focus on new characters and generally deemed it a weak conclusion to the series.
In June 2018, Danny McBride confirmed that he and David Gordon Green had originally intended to pitch two films that would be shot back-to-back, and then decided against it, waiting to see the reaction to the first film. In September 2018, producer Jason Blum said that “we will do a sequel if the movie performs”. A month later, after the new film Halloween‘s opening weekend, McBride confirmed that early development on a sequel had begun. As soon as Halloween was released in theaters, McBride and Green started devising the story for two sequels alongside other writers such as Chris Bernier and Paul Brad Logan, who assisted them in writing simultaneously both sequels. In July 2019, Bloody Disgusting reported that a third film was also in development, with Green returning as director. The site also claimed that the studio was considering releasing both films in October 2020. Green, McBride and Jeff Fradley had planned out a two-film story arc, but opted for a trilogy after realizing they had more material than originally thought.
In July 2019, Universal Pictures revealed the titles and release dates of the two sequels, with Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends set to be released in 2020 and 2021, respectively. Green was officially announced to direct both films and co-write the scripts with McBride, Scott Teems was confirmed as a co-writer for Halloween Kills, while Paul Brad Logan and Chris Bernier were announced as co-writers of Halloween Ends. Blum, Malek Akkad, and Bill Block were slated to produce the film while John Carpenter, Curtis, Green, and McBride were attached as executive producers once again. The writing team, consisting of Green, McBride, Bernier, and Logan, started workshopping ideas before production of Halloween Kills commenced, completing a first draft in 2019. The final script was completed in 2021 pending Carpenter’s approval. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Universal delayed the release dates of both Kills and Ends by a year.
Green set out to make each sequel different. For the second film, he wanted an action film and for the finale he wanted a love story. In October 2021, Green revealed that Halloween Ends will take place four years after the events of Halloween Kills and would incorporate elements of the pandemic into the story. In an interview, Logan distinguished internet rumors that the film was supposed to take place on the same night of the previous installments. Curtis claimed the film will be “shocking” and will “make people very angry”. Akkad stated Ends will be more “contained” than Kills, while Green called it an intimate coming-of-age story, much like Carpenter’s Christine (1983). Other cited influences on the film were Butcher, Baker, Nightmare Maker and My Bodyguard. According to Green, several different endings were considered for the film; Green ultimately chose a more “optimistic, hopeful” conclusion after Kills‘s “bleak” ending, compensating for the traumatic events that Laurie Strode lived through in the film and its predecessors.
- Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, a survivor of Michael Myers’s 1978 killing spree and Allyson’s grandmother.
- Andi Matichak as Allyson Nelson, Laurie’s granddaughter.
- Will Patton as Deputy Frank Hawkins, a sheriff’s deputy who arrested Michael following his initial killing spree in 1978.
- Rohan Campbell as Corey Cunningham, a young man accused of murdering a child while he babysat, leading to him becoming a pariah in Haddonfield.
- Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace, one of the children Laurie babysat in 1978.
- James Jude Courtney as Michael Myers / The Shape, the masked figure who carried out a horrific massacre on Halloween night in 1978, returned to Haddonfield for another killing spree forty years later in 2018.
Halloween Ends premiered at Grauman’s Chinese Theater, Los Angeles, as part of Beyond Fest on October 11, 2022. The premiere coincided with Curtis’s induction ceremony at the Hollywood Walk of Fame in front of the theater the following day. The film was released theatrically in the United States by Universal Pictures on October 14, 2022, playing in 3,901 theaters. In addition, the film started streaming simultaneously on paid tiers of Peacock for 60 days. It was initially set to release on October 15, 2021, before being delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
