“Halloween Ends” to Stream on Peacock and Play in Theaters

Just like they did for last year's Halloween Kills, Universal is releasing Halloween Ends in theaters and on Peacock the same day.

The final entry in this sequel trilogy will allegedly wrap up the story of Laurie Strode and Michael Myers, but we'll see. Their saga was previously wrapped up in the original film, 1981's Halloween II, 1998's Halloween H20, 2002's Halloween: Resurrection and 2018's Halloween. This may be the final time Jamie Lee Curtis and this iteration of the masked killer face off, but don't be surprised if there's more to come. The previous entries in this latest story arc each made more than $100 million worldwide on relatively small budgets.

Set four years after the events of the last film, Michael shows up once more to terrorize Haddonfield. And of course, Laurie claims this time she'll kill him and end it once and for all. Returning for this finale are Andi Matichak, Will Patton and Kyle Richards, with the towering James Jude Courtney as the Shape. Rohan Campbell plays new character Corey Cunningham, who's accused of a horrendous crime that brings Michael back for another killing spree.

Halloween Ends arrives in theaters and streams exclusively on Peacock on Friday, October 14.

About Kip Mooney

Kip Mooney
Like many film critics born during and after the 1980s, my hero is Roger Ebert. The man was already the best critic in the nation when he won the Pulitzer in 1975, but his indomitable spirit during and after his recent battle with cancer keeps me coming back to read not only his reviews but his insightful commentary on the everyday. But enough about a guy you know a lot about. I knew I was going to be a film critic—some would say a snob—in middle school, when I had to voraciously defend my position that The Royal Tenenbaums was only a million times better than Adam Sandler’s remake of Mr. Deeds. From then on, I would seek out Wes Anderson’s films and avoid Sandler’s like the plague. Still, I like to think of myself as a populist, and I’ll be just as likely to see the next superhero movie as the next Sundance sensation. The thing I most deplore in a movie is laziness. I’d much rather see movies with big ambitions try and fail than movies with no ambitions succeed at simply existing. I’m also a big advocate of fun-bad movies like The Room and most of Nicolas Cage’s work. In the past, I’ve written for The Dallas Morning News and the North Texas Daily, which I edited for a semester. I also contributed to Dallas-based Pegasus News, which in the circle of life, is now part of The Dallas Morning News, where I got my big break in 2007. Eventually, I’d love to write and talk about film full-time, but until that’s a viable career option, I work as an auditor for Wells Fargo. I hope to one day meet my hero, go to the Toronto International Film Festival, and compete on Jeopardy. Until then, I’m excited to share my love of film with you.
