The anticipated trailer for Halloween Ends dropped on Tuesday showing Jamie Lee Curtis jumping back into the role of Laurie Strode in the thirteenth instalment of the Halloween franchise after her original appearance in 1978. The trailer provides us with a sneak peek of the monumental showdown between Jamie’s character and serial killer, Michael Myers.
The trailer sees Jamie’s character as a survivor of Michael Myers’s original killing spree. As a result of the horrors that she was forced to endure, she lives now a recluse struggling with PTSD. The 2018 film and the 2021 sequel Halloween Kills saw Laurie team up with her daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) when Myers reemerges to attack Haddonfield, Ill.
Curtis and Matichak will reprise their roles from the last two movies. Also reprising their roles from the previous films are Will Patton, Kyle Richards, and Omar Dorsey. Meanwhile, Michael O’Leary will join as a new addition to the cast.
Halloween Ends will follow the cliffhanger ending of Halloween Kills. The trailer shows Curtis writing her memoir to put the fear and trauma of the past behind her. Until someone accuses a young man of killing a boy he was babysitting, and all hell breaks loose yet again. However, none of this is featured in the slightly lacklustre trailer which leaves a fairly unsatisfying feeling, to say the least.
David Gordon Green once again directs and co-writes with Paul Brad Logan, Chris Bernier, and Danny McBride. The film is set to end the trilogy which started in 2018, as a direct sequel to the original 1978 Halloween. Halloween Ends will release in theatres on October 14.
