Universal has released a much improved final trailer for Halloween Ends – which you can check it out below.
While previous teases and trailers have given us hints at what’s to come, this final look at the film delves deeper into the story and sees a bloodthirsty Michael return for one last showdown with Laurie Strode. Per Laurie’s narration in the trailer, it’s been four years since Michael vanished without a trace, but now he’s back and more dangerous than ever.
Alongside new footage of Michael’s latest rampage, the final trailer zones in on Laurie’s continued obsession with him, and questions just what it will take for her to eliminate The Boogeyman, once and for all.
The film’s synopsis reads:
Four years after the events of last year’s Halloween Kills, Laurie is living with her granddaughter Allyson 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, 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.
Horror icon Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode for the final time, and stars alongside a returning cast which includes Andi Matichak as Laurie’s grandaughter Allyson, Will Patton as Officer Frank Hawkins, Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace, and James Jude Courtney as The Shape. Rohan Campbell also co-stars as Corey Cunningham.
David Gordon Green returns to the directors chair, after previously helming both the 2018 Halloween relaunch and Halloween Kills.
When the franchise relaunched in 2018, Halloween shattered box office records, becoming the franchise’s highest-grossing chapter and set a new record for the biggest opening weekend for a horror film starring a woman. Only time will tell if the trilogies final chapter will deliver on both a critical and commercial level.
Halloween Ends arrives in theatres, and on Peacock on October 14th.
