Carpenter, who has executive produced this current trilogy in addition to providing the score for the films, recently spoke with Syfy Wire about “Halloween Ends.” Granted, the horror master couldn’t say much but he did offer a bit, asserting that it does indeed serve as a conclusion and that it will be a departure from what has come before.
“Well, it’s Halloween, and it ends [laughs]. You’ll see it’s a departure from the others. It’s interesting. Dave is a really good director. I love working with him.”
Without any form of elaboration, it’s hard to speculate as to what that might mean but it is interesting nonetheless. “Halloween” 2018 was a pretty brutal slasher flick that was a real crowd-pleaser. “Halloween Kills” took place on the very same night and upped the violence a great deal while also trying to add in some social commentary. But still, the movies were more or less Michael making his way through Haddonfield racking up a body count while Jame Lee Curtis’ Laurie tries to stop him.
Apparently, Green has cooked up something different to help send us off. It is worth noting that Carpenter had previously indicated that the team in place right now really does want to try and end the franchise, perhaps offering the definitive conclusion to Curtis’ version of Laurie and this iteration of Michael at the very least.
