“Halloween Ends” is the final movie and battle of Michael Myers and Laurie Strode. The film was released on Oct. 14 and is playing in theaters and streaming on Peacock.

Director David Gordon Green (“Halloween Kills”) released the final horror film of the “Halloween” franchise “Halloween Ends” on Oct. 14.
The movie is the last installment of the trilogy series of the 2018 movie “Halloween” and the 2021 movie “Halloween Kills.” It is also Jamie Lee Curtis’s final time as Laurie Strode in the “Halloween” franchise.
“Halloween Ends” takes place in Haddonfield, Illinois and tells the story of Corey Cunningham, a man who babysits a young boy named Jeremy and gets accused of murdering him. He then discovers Michael Myers.
The film stars Jamie Lee Curtis (“Freaky Friday,” “Halloween”) as Laurie Strode, Andi Matichak (“Assimilate”) as Allyson Nelson, James Jude Courtney (“The Freeway Maniac”) as Michael Myers and Rohan Campbell (“The Hardy Boys”) as Corey Cunningham.
In some scenes, there were flashbacks from the 1978 “Halloween” movie where it shows Strode and Myers.
The film is centered on the relationship between Cunningham and Nelson, who is Strode’s granddaughter and his life as a killer.
Compared to the other movies from the “Halloween” franchise, this film is unique because Myers does not kill people alone.
The kills in the movie were basic kills and some were brutal. There was a gruesome kill that involved scissors.
The movie is suspenseful and dramatic. In some scenes, there is curiosity of when Myers will appear in the film. Other scenes involved characters yelling at each other and having confrontations.
The best part of the movie is near the end scene when a long-awaited battle between Strode and Myers finally takes place. This was fascinating because Strode and Myers came face-to-face.
Overall, this movie was alright because it was mostly about Cunningham’s life and there were few action scenes of Myers and Strode together. However, the movie’s ending was memorable because it was the final battle between Strode and Myers.
