The “Halloween Ends” reveal below.
Reactions are starting to trickle in on “Halloween Ends,” a trilogy of songs that became one of the most successful reboots in horror history. So far, it seems that fans and critics alike are markedly confused about the particular direction the third entry takes. Sure, it was a bold move by David Gordon Green, Danny McBride, and the rest of the writing team and, wherever the final analysis was, they all had a big twist with it. the plot they chose. On the surface, “Halloween Ends” has all the elements you need for an effective “Halloween” movie: Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode, which is set during Halloween and features a butcher knife. glistening, bloody in most of the scenes.
The big, looming omission in the climax of the Strode family story is the franchise’s main catalyst — the realist — who has been wildly absent for much of the film’s length. Instead, “Ends” follows a new character named Corey (an effective but replaced Rohan Campbell) who begins a star-studded relationship with Laurie’s niece, Allyson (Andi Matichak). Corey and Allyson’s loyalty was doomed from the start, and their strange love story seemed completely out of place.
Structurally, “Halloween Ends” is more of a dark seventeen-year-old romance with horror tunes that make it feel like the pilot of a new TV show called “Haddonfield”. With a jump-start that spanned several years, “Ends” decided to drop work on a third film entirely, opting instead for a profitable rush for the CW’s “Riverdale.”
That’s not necessarily a bad thing
Did I watch a TV show tinged with terror on Peacock called “Haddonfield” about a town living in the shadow of Michael Myers? COURSE I OWN! A more sinister, more menacing version of “Riverdale” set in October incorporating a sense of John Carpenter’s trademark atmosphere could be something truly special. “Riverdale” was actually inspired by Jamie Lee Curtis’ famous return to the franchise. Returning to 2019 in season 4 with the episode “Chapter Sixty-One: Halloween,” a Myers-style killer known as the Family Man committed a brutal murder. Veronica Lodge (Camila Mendes) saved the day by setting him on fire, in the same way that Laurie allegedly killed Michael at the end of “Halloween” in 2018.
The drastic turn that “Halloween Ends” takes by focusing more on the teenagers of Haddonfield instead of the final confrontation between Laurie and Michael is more consistent with the plot than a supernatural series. like “Riverdale”. Corey is bullied and misunderstood as fitting for a sympathetic character like Jughead (Cole Sprouse). The central mystery in “Ends” leads Corey to meet Michael Myers in person and essentially join forces with him to finish what he started. Myers is essentially an infectious disease that infects Corey, and villains like the Black Hood in “Riverdale” also influence younger kids like Betty (Lili Reinhart) to catch the killer bug every day. series.
It will happen eventually
The bullies in “Ends” are basically just a bunch of scammers who could be members of the Northside gang. Terry (Michael Barberi), Stacy (Destiny Mone), Margo (Joey Harris) and Billy (Marteen) are always on the lookout for Corey (who could easily be caught in the Southside Serpents), until a violent confrontation ensues. . Corey became a placeholder for Michael, who made the perfect character to wreak havoc on the TV show “Haddonfield”.
Furthermore, this isn’t the first time “Halloween” has been shown on television, remember? The tremendous success of the original prompted NBC to acquire the show as soon as 1980. Eleven minutes of footage was added to increase primetime run time, including the famous scene when Dr. Loomis displayed the word “Sister” scrawled on Michael’s hospital door. Carpenter was back to film those scenes and perhaps Michael was referring to his dead sister, Judith. That is, until a lost file reveals that Laurie is Michael’s sister in “Halloween II”.
The idea for a “Halloween” TV show isn’t new. If (or when) the franchise decides to switch to a new vehicle, “Riverdale” would be a perfect case in point. Longtime producer Malek Akkad was certainly mulling over the idea of a TV show when he said Bloody Disgust“It won’t look like your traditional ‘Halloween’ movie, but [Michael]In it there are many other characters but used in different and interesting ways. “Sounds like what really happened with ‘Halloween Ends’, doesn’t it?
