The long-awaited sequel to 2018’s Halloween, Halloween Kill, has finally arrived (Theater and Peacock). The entry into this franchise, which began with John Carpenter’s masterpiece in 1978, caused a lot of bloodshed and a surge in deaths and was not ashamed of its name.
(We will also explore concerns about the theme of the 2018 film, such as how the trauma of violence affects generations. This time we will look at the impact on the entire community.) And this film is Very shocking, but the last few minutes. This is what the ending means and how it affects the next third (and last?) Installments of this new trilogy, “Halloween Kills” (starting next Halloween).
There are two important things that are happening at the last moment of the “Halloween Kill”. Both are the same size. Enter two great soaked revelations! ?? !!
One of the pieces and third law involves Tommy Doyle (Anthony Michael Hall), one of the children who, Laurie Trode (Jamie Lee Curtis) BabySat in the original 1978, eventually caught Michael Myers. During the “Halloween Kills” Tommy slowly turned into a vigilante, which impose the rule of the Mafia in the sleepy city of Haddonfield and ordered a small gang with the express purpose of taking Michael Myers and an end to make to his reign of Terror. (It even has a handsome slogan, ready for shirts: “crazy die tonight!) After a series of deadlines, losing opportunities, and faulty identities (sorry, that other, escape-patient-spiritual patient!), Tommy finally gets his Man (crazy) and he and the other angry villagers get his revenge, stab, shoot and hit Michael Myers.
It is noteworthy that the director David Gordon Green organizes the action with some Impressionism. The characters appearing against a black background are only illuminated by a semicircle of idle cars. It is added to the hallucinogenic quality of the drive of the nightmare. While repeated elsewhere, revenge is empty and even a seemingly satisfactory origin takes place in an empty vacuum. Anyway, as Michael Myers begins to fully understand the meaning of compensation, we cut the hospital where Laurie is recovering (and sometimes try to accommodate a derived D thirst horde) with the deputy Hawkins (Will Patton), The law enforcement left death at the end of the last movie, but it is alive (type) at the beginning of the “Halloween Kills”.
They discuss the nature of evil, as it refers to Michael Myers, and how, get it! – Violence applied to him actually gives him power. The tenor of the conversation is a conspirator in tone and suggests that the murder distribution of Myers does have a supernatural element. And a few seconds later it appears true, such as Michael, on the fashion of the real horror movie, rises from the death and far from all the companions that caught him. And it’s great.
If the franchise has “Halloween” a complicated story with the supernatural. As a concept, it was only launched in the series in 1982 (and deeply underrated) “Halloween III Season”, a single film regarding the intersection of Druids and technology. (He was a legendary British Ghost Nigel Knelle, who went down the name of the project after being dissatisfied with the final product III “takes place outside the main continuity of the franchise (this is a movie where there is the first” Halloween “is as a movie in this universe), let’s now set it aside.
The following true introduction of the supernatural arrived in” Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers “, the sixth (!) Film in the series launched in 1995 is. This is where Doring’s cult entered the game, an ancient evil that had the power to control Michael Myers. (Can you imagine?) Depending on which version you see (there was the theatrical cut and cut out the producer who is more appreciated, which the factory shouts, just removed a beautiful Blu-Ray of 4K Ultra HD. Everything is unnecessarily complicated and beautiful stupid and involves a demon and an ancient ritual and a blood ritual at Halloween Night. It was a clear part of a last-ditch attempt to rejuvenate (strengthen) the franchise and a concept that much in Friday, 13, partly deployed VI: Jason Lives, “Who was completely edited as a sample killer and not dead.
(There were also some quasi-mystical elements to steal the “Halloween II of Rob Zombie, again more present in the director’s cut as the theater loan, but we get away from the specific hive).
The fact that “Halloween kills” The Michael hugs Myers concept, as the concept of supernatural animal is deeply fascinating and a strong turn to the left, especially because the 2018 film is rooted in the sandy realism and emotional truth. But again did you expect a full third of the “Halloween mortality” in 1978? Also: Tommy Doyle was wrong. The evil did not die tonight
A Shocking Final Kill
As “Halloween Kills” comes to a close, Michael has once again disappeared into the inky blackness of Halloween night, and the Strode family – including Laurie’s daughter, Karen Nelson (Judy Greer), who lost her husband to Myers’ murder spree; and her granddaughter Allyson Nelson (Andi Matichak), whose boyfriend (Dylan Arnold), is killed moments before – are alive and filled with a steely resolve. With Laurie still at the hospital, Karen and Allyson are at the former Michael Myers house. Karen looks out the same window that Michael looked out after killing his older sister on Halloween night, 1963.
She thinks the house is empty (its new owners, who really spruced up the place, were killed earlier that night), but, in the movie’s most shocking moment, Michael appears behind her and plunges the knife into her, again and again. Allyson and Laurie have no idea. It is a truly brutal way to end the movie.
Although, there is some glimmer of hope. After all, Deputy Hawkins’ obituary was practically being printed when he sprung back up. Could this be an elaborate fake-out to give “Halloween Kills” a shocking cliffhanger, with every intention of bringing Karen (and the wonderful Judy Greer) back for the final chapter? Or is every installment in this new franchise meant to focus around a different member of the Strode clan, with 2018’s being primarily about Laurie, “Halloween Kills” focusing more on Karen, and 2022’s “Halloween Ends” concerned more with Allyson?
Who knows! This brings us to…
What This All Means For ‘Halloween Ends’
“Halloween Ends,” which begins production in January, is meant to serve as the end of this new trilogy, as well as the conclusion to the franchise that began in 1978 and has been rebooted and spun off repeatedly in the decades since. It is going to be big.
But what do these revelations mean for this final chapter?
Well, depending on the fate of poor Karen Nelson, it could either fuel Laurie and Allyson’s quest for vengeance or leave them emotionally hollowed out. Will Laurie and Allyson band together or be torn apart? And what effect will Karen’s death have on the collective trauma of the town, already torn apart by rage and remembrance?
And, you know, how will they even defeat Michael Myers, especially if he is now pulsing with some dark supernatural force?
Other questions to consider before next fall: will Deputy Hawkins be back out of bed and ready to kick ass? Will there be more flashbacks to 1978? And who in town is even left to kill?
