Back in 2018, we collected ’round the intense jack-o-lantern to go over the ending of David Gordon Green’s Halloween Michael Myers’ survival was all however ensured– after all, Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends had actually currently been revealed, so there was no other way slasher’s freakiest Shatner mask was going to incinerate in Laurie Strode’s (Jamie Lee Curtis) booby-trapped basement.
Halloween Kills, nevertheless, tosses a couple of more curveballs at the audience– not always concerning Michael’s fate (because, undoubtedly, Halloween Ends still needs to occur), however dispensing surprise goodbyes to a great deal of other characters, not to point out offering us a brand-new inspiration for Haddonfield’s boogeyman. Now that Halloween Kills has actually been out in theaters and on Peacock for a couple of days, we’re breaking out the fun-sized Snickers bars for some spoiler-filled Halloween Kills chit-chat.
Last things initially, that ending, in which Judy Greer’s Karen— the child of Laurie Strode, and quickly the most level-headed individual in all of Haddonfield, wanders upstairs in the Meyers home to look out of Michael’s preferred window– and spends for it with her life. This, after taking Michael’s mask and teasing him with it … so that he can be set upon by a mob led by a baseball bat-wielding Tommy Doyle (Anthony Michael Hall) … which lays him out for around 2 minutes prior to he rises and massacres all of them. Consisting of Karen. Nooooo!

That would make a particular quantity of sense if Halloween Kills was still following the basic Halloween stories of “Michael’s favored targets are his own woman member of the family” and/or “Michael’s favored targets are individuals linked to Laurie Strode.” This connection, which has actually currently made it clear that Michael and Laurie aren’t brother or sisters, now strolls back the concept that Michael is consumed with completing what he began in 1978– something Laurie thought so highly was real that she invested almost her whole life preparing for his return. Halloween Kills informs us he mainly wishes to go house, which indicates Karen was simply in the method I think.
What did you consider Halloween Kills‘ handle Michael’s inspiration? Were you shocked that Karen passed away? What else did you like or not like about the most recent entry in the series– and what do you wish to see in Halloween Ends? Who else is prepared to offer Michael Myers a break and re-watch Halloween III: Season of the Witch rather?
