Halloween Ends disappointed fans: how the director of the horror franchise explains it

The final film in David Gordon Green’s signature new trilogy left fans with mixed feelings. That’s exactly why the director now explains Halloween Ends, for a better understanding. However, the explanations don’t seem to help much.

Some of the criticism the horror film received had to do with the fact that Laurie Strode and Michael Myers, played by Jamie Lee Curtis and James Jude Courtney respectively, were not featured in what was supposed to be their first confrontation in 44 years.

“We had to decide how we wanted to end the story of these characters. Honestly, we never thought about doing a Laurie and Michael movie,” Green told Movie Maker. “The concept that there should be a final showdown, and that hadn’t crossed our minds yet. I wanted to see where it would go. I wanted one to win and one to die. But we’ve always been more ambitious than that,” he said.

Green also said he did “what no one but us would do: make a love story.” Halloween Ends focuses on Laurie’s niece Allyson, played by Andi Matichak, and Corey, played by Rohan Campbell. Corey is falsely accused of killing a boy while he was caring for him, which caused him trauma, isolating him from society as a result.

There has also been talk that the premise of the film is meant to tell the story of the evolution of evil and put the emphasis on a community that neglects its members.

Halloween Ends had a disappointing first week, with the release not being what the producers had hoped, generating $41 million at the US box office.
