‘Halloween Ends’ Release Date, Trailer, Spoilers, Leaks, and More

laurie and michael in Halloween Ends

All sagas must come to a dramatic end, and Michael and Laurie (Jamie Lee Curtis)’s will most certainly do that. Halloween (1978) rocked the horror world when it was released. It still remains a classic and a favorite among horror fans (including myself).

The film sparked a stream of sequels, including the trilogy that began in 2018. (This new trilogy negated the events that happened in all of the sequels and instead served as a continuation of the original.) Michael began a new and more violent killing spree in Halloween (2018) and upped the body count in Halloween Kills (2021). Now Laurie and Michael are facing off for the last time. We’ll have to see if that means one or both of these icons will meet their final demise. Need more details about the final movie in this trilogy? Scroll on. 

Halloween Ends Plot Explained

After the traumatic events of Halloween Kills (2021), Laurie and her granddaughter Alyson (Andi Matichak) are living together and Laurie is plugging away at her memoir. Michael hasn’t been seen since 2018, finally allowing Laurie to embrace life rather than let her fear of him control hers. But when a young man named Corey Cunningham is accused of killing the child he was babysitting, it leads Laurie to finally confront the evil she’s unable to control. Once and for all.

Halloween Ends Spoilers/leaks?

Please keep in mind that posting spoilers and leaks can potentially ruin the experience for others. Not to mention affect the success of a film, which is in poor taste if you’re actually a fan of a franchise. Make sure to mark any spoilers or leaks you may personally have as such. If you’re actively seeking anything out, reddit may be a good place for that, but always proceed with grains of salt.

  • Potential spoiler pertaining to Michael, potentially Allyson and whether or not the movie is set in post-pandemic

The Christine (1983) inspiration?

According to this article in CBR, the director and some cast members have teased that this film may make some fans “angry.” (This already isn’t too uncommon for the Halloween franchise.) The worry is that it might be “too Christine.” With a potential supernatural twist, anything is possible. Regardless, we’ll be getting a climactic conclusion and whether or not it’ll be what we want collectively is up in the air. 

Future entries?

This is a John Carpenter quote you can read via the Halloween Ends Wikipedia page:

“Let me explain the movie business to you: if you take a dollar sign and attach it to anything, there will be somebody who wants to do a sequel. It will live. If the dollar sign is not big enough, no matter what, it will not live… I don’t know, man. I don’t know. This time, I do not know. They really want to end. They’re going to shut it off, end it. It’s what David has in mind. That’s fine.”

– John Carpenter
