The release of Halloween Ends is just around the corner. The movie has just scored an R-rating for “Bloody horror violence and gore, language throughout and some sexual references.” Let’s be honest, anything less would be a tragedy.
Scream Queen Jamie Lee Curtis returns for the last time as Laurie Strode, for Halloween Ends, set four years after the events of last year’s Halloween Kills, Laurie is living with her granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) and is finishing writing her memoir. Michael Myers hasn’t been seen since. Laurie, after allowing the specter of Michael to determine and drive her reality for decades, has decided to liberate herself from fear and rage and embrace life. But when a young man, Corey Cunningham (Rohan Campbell; The Hardy Boys, Virgin River), is accused of killing a boy he was babysitting, it ignites a cascade of violence and terror that will force Laurie to finally confront the evil she can’t control, once and for all.”
Returning cast members also include Will Patton as Officer Frank Hawkins, Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace, and James Jude Courtney as “The Shape.”
