Note: The following article contains heavy plot spoilers for the end of Halloween.
It’s been almost two weeks since then The end of Halloween First shown in theaters and beyond peacockSome audiences are still disappointed with director David Gordon Green’s conclusion Halloween triple. Although the film highlights the final confrontation between Laurie Strode and Michael Myers, many audiences are put off by the film’s focus less on this conflict and more on newcomer Corey Cunningham, who becomes an agent of evil after facing the format.
The backlash from the audience can be understood because the movie they saw was contrary to what they expected to see. however, The end of Halloween He still has many great qualities They make it a lot better than people think, and the audience has to admit to all the things that make a movie a true cinematic pleasure.
very much like Avengers: EndgameAnd the The end of Halloween Dealing with the fallout from his villain’s violent frenzy from the previous movie, he explores the fear, anger, and grief left behind and piling up on the villain’s return later in the movie. Although audiences have been criticizing Michael for not having much screen time in this movie, his influence casts a shadow on Haddonfield, making him a force of nature even darker than he was before.
Also, the fact that he had rarely seen him makes him even more terrifying. As in the original John Carpenter movie, the suspense of waiting to see when and where he will show himself makes the movie even more unsettling for audiences. According to SourceHalloween at TwitterMichael has 10 minutes and 55 seconds of screen time The end of Halloweenwhile in 1978 HalloweenHe has 9 minutes and 37 seconds.
Although the filmmakers could only focus on Laurie’s ultimate pursuit of Michael, this wasn’t very interesting, as this story has been done many times before. In order for the reboot to justify its existence, it must bring something new to the franchise with something new to say. And so on, The end of Halloween It shows how Michael’s evil can spread to other people and take on a new form. With the citizens of Haddonfield still suffering from Michael’s latest massacre and nowhere to be seen, the Bogeymans are all redirecting their anger and malice toward an easy target: Corey Cunningham.
After a boy who was caring for his children is accidentally murdered on Halloween night, Corey becomes an outcast in Haddonfield, where townspeople see him as a sadistic killer like Michael Myers when he’s just a lonely and misunderstood young man. In the end, the constant abuse and mistreatment of Cory caused him to become a revenge killer. As a result, Corey’s regression into evil shows how anyone, even someone who appears to be “normal” like Corey, can become like Michael under the right circumstances.
The Halloween franchise, specifically Michael Myers, has contributed to society’s stigma toward mental illness with its frightening portrayal of a psychopathic killer. The end of Halloween It brings a more advanced depiction of the subject matter by exploring the humanity of characters who suffer from mental health issues after the Michael murders.
All over the new Halloween Trilogy, Laurie struggles with alcoholism and post-traumatic stress disorder after her traumatic encounter with Michael as a teenager. but, The end of Halloween It appears that Laurie is now sober and trying to live a life that is not dominated by her trauma. Laurie even writes a memoir of his experiences with Michael as part of her recovery process.
Despite this, Laurie becomes focused on Michael again as she notices the darkness within Cory. Her fears were proven true, but she slipped into the rabbit hole of mania and resumed drinking, making her fake suicide attempt all the more believable to the public. Overall, Laurie’s struggles in the film show how shock and grief not only goes away, they can continue to follow someone like how Michael pursues his victims.
Likewise, the way the film explores the misery left by Michael in Haddonfield evokes disturbing memories of the COVID-19 pandemic, which was a difficult time for the mental health of many people. Lowry even claims that the people of Haddonfield “fell into a plague of grief, blame, and paranoia” after Michael’s massacre, and that the suffering he caused “became a contagion to people who never crossed his path.”
But despite how the people of Haddonfield denigrate Michael and liken him to the supernatural plague, once Laurie takes off his mask at the end of the movie, she admits that the so-called Bogeyman is still just a man inside. There was no longer anything supernatural or frightening in him; He’s just a human now just as helpless as the rest of the people.
Like Greene’s previous films, The end of Halloween He continues to show a fond love for the entire franchise, including the movie Black Sheep, witch season. Specifically, the opening title sequence of the third Green movie uses a blue font instead of an orange font, just as in witch season. In hindsight, how this new film referred to such a controversial film suggested that the story wouldn’t be the story fans were expected to see and that the filmmakers knew it would be divisive.
Along the same lines, Halloween finish It repeats multiple shots from Carpenter’s first movie, for example when an exhausted Laurie rests her head on the doorway and Michael impales one of his victims against a wall and stares at him. Cory even recreates the iconic image of Michael looking down from a balcony while holding a knife, with Laurie later portraying Cory as Dr. Loomis shooting Michael in the original film. Fans may say the makers of the movie weren’t eligible for a reboot Halloweenbut it’s clear from praises like this that the entire trilogy, including the ending, was a work of passion for the franchise.
Another thing that the movie excels at is that it delivers scary moments to audiences. The end of HalloweenThe image presents a particularly terrifying moment in its opening scene when Corey accidentally kills Jeremy by kicking him on the balcony. While watching a child die on screen is scary enough, the fact that someone besides Michael Myers killed a young boy in this movie makes this moment especially shocking.
Likewise, the filmmakers continue to deliver as many creative and bloody murders as those seen in the previous two films. For example, after Willie insults baby Corey and Alison, Corey doesn’t take revenge on him by simply smashing his face into an office; He delivers an extra amount of karma to the radio operator by cutting his tongue, which falls on a rotating record and interrupts the playing of the music. It’s a brutal moment but a grim comedy that shows how the filmmakers know how to create some truly unique horror.
After watching Michael Myers go back to terrorizing everyone around him multiple times across many films, the audience saw The end of Halloween Bring the best result to the franchise by ending the reign of Michael the Terrible once and for all. Since his body is destroyed in an industrial shredder at the end of the film, there is no chance that he will return or that any writer will undo his death. Shape gone.
Thus, the people of Haddonfield are finally gaining some closure and can move on to a brighter future. Allison reconciles with Laurie and leaves Haddonfield to live her own life, while the latter finishes her memoir and finds new love in Deputy Hawkins. These characters have endured a lot of suffering throughout the franchise, so it’s good to see Laurie and Allyson finally achieve the happiness they deserve.
The end of Halloween He currently plays in theaters and streams on Peacock.
