Horror Mo(vie)Tober: Halloween Ends (2022)
Four years after her last encounter with masked killer Michael Myers, Laurie Strode is living with her granddaughter and trying to finish her memoir. Myers hasn't been seen since, and Laurie finally decides to liberate herself from rage and fear and embrace life. However, when a young man stands accused of murdering a boy that he was babysitting, it ignites a cascade of violence and terror that forces Laurie to confront the evil she can't control.
Yet again, me and my homie Lauren went to Emagine Theaters in Rochester Hills and saw Halloween Ends, directed by David Gordon Green. I went into this movie with the lowest expectations ever, considering it’s the THIRTEENTH and final (hopefully) installment in the Halloween series. Let’s just say that this was one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Not only was it incredibly bland, but the dialogue was so slow and boring.
The intro was interesting, and made a homage to the original. Some of the kills were also creative and really gore-y, which I appreciated! Other than that, everything else was negative for me. The plot was uninteresting, and the chemistry of the two main characters felt unnatural and rushed.
I think that this movie was unnecessary, but necessary in the sense that it finally puts an end to the Halloween series. To keep this review short, I am going to give this movie a 4.5/10. It is very slow, only some of the kills were creative, the ending was dull and not exciting, and the dialogue and plot were not interesting in the slightest.

I would like to thank Emagine Theater Rochester Hills for having the largest soda cups in existence and my homie Lauren for helping me tolerate Halloween Ends.
