On October 14, 2022, Halloween Ends made its premiere exclusively on Peacock and in theaters, released perfectly in time for the Halloween season.
The film features familiar faces such as Jamie Lee Curtis playing Laurie Strode and Andi Matichak playing Allyson Nelson.
Crucial characters died in the previous movie, Halloween Kills, making the movie all more effortless to warm up to newer additions and new romances.
The film showcased an endless quantity of savage and relentless killings. Although brutal, it left the audience lured to keep watching for the next victim’s encounter. Rohan Campell playing Corey Cunningham sublimely executed Michaels’s apprentice. Using scissors to chop tongues off was the film’s peak in regards to being unapologetically insane.
Corey’s character perfectly showcases what it looks like to feed into Michael’s evil. The character’s developments lead viewers to feel solitude toward a “freak kid” but encompasses plot twists along the way. Leaving his murders to be portrayed as compassionate. Although Michael grippedly snapped his neck at the end, Corey managed to revive once before, leaving his death to be questionable.
Although Corey was definitely manic, viewers will catch on to Corey’s rekindling affair with Alyson. Making the affair to be a bit unnecessary to really watch but new romances are always alluring to viewers.
Nonetheless, as viewers watched Laurie Strode grow older in the films, they had anticipated her to tragically die along with Michael, however that was not the case. Michael did definitely die though.
His gruesome death left the questions of whether Halloween would make any comeback as the name “Halloween: Ends” suggests it may be the last movie. Producer Jason Blum ensured that it would likely not be the last movie, though, leaving viewers to wonder whether Corey Cunningham would return as a prodigy.
The movie is worth watching as it catches you off guard and you’ll catch yourself fascinated by the indulgent killings. The bloody murders are very much personal and merciful compared to the last film.
