‘Halloween Ends’ sees the original franchise survivors go up against Michael Myers in the final entry of the 2018 Halloween trilogy.
It’s an understatement to say that I disliked ‘Halloween Kills’; it had an interesting concept but didn’t know how to execute it well. Plus, the messaging of mob mentality didn’t sit right with me considering events of the last two years. So, I have been far from excited to see ‘Halloween Ends’. But, just like the trailer for the previous entry, this trailer had got me very intrigued by its set up which is essentially a continuation of the ideas introduced in ‘Halloween Kills’.
It even captures fans’ nostalgia by starting with a recreation of the opening scene from the original horror film and features flashbacks of the other characters from previous entries that will make a return here.
While I was left feeling disappointed by ‘Halloween Kills’, I feel ashamed to say that the first trailer for ‘Halloween Ends’ has made me interested. Nostalgia pulling is something that has been used a lot with recent franchises and this is no exception and, once again, it has personally worked. I just hope the end to the trilogy is better than its predecessor.
