What happens at the end of Halloween
The end of Halloween It comes to its big end as Corey (Rohan Campbell), wearing a Michael Myers mask, breaks into Laurie Strode’s home. Jamie Lee Curtis’s latest legendary girl pretends to be suicidal – including making a call to the police and shooting her pistol – but it’s just a ploy to fool Haddonfield’s latest murder maniac. While Lori and Cory fight, shots are fired and the latter flies through the second floor staircase, but their struggle continues in the foyer.
Cory is mortally wounded, but laughs when he sees Alison (Andy Matichak) standing in her car. Former babysitter Laurie says, “If I can’t get it…” and proceeds to stab himself in the neck with a knife. As Cory had hoped, Allison comes at the exact wrong moment and assumes that Laurie killed him to prevent him from taking her away from Haddonfield. She screamed and got back to her car as it started to rain.
While driving Allison away, Michael Myers enters Laurie’s house, retrieves his mask, and takes a Corey knife. When Corey grabs his wrist alive, Michael grabs his head and smacks his neck. Meanwhile, Lori sneaks around and hides from her bogeyman.
When Allison arrives at the radio station and sees her on fire, she receives a call from Officer Frank Hawkins (Will Patton) regarding Laurie’s suicide call. Back home, grumpy grandmother and Michael Myers begin their last fight in the kitchen. They exchange blows, Laurie is thrown, there is violence with the garbage disposal and the knitting needle – but in the end the heroine gets the upper hand. She stabs him in the chest and in the hand, pins him to the table with a knife, and uses a cast-iron plank like a hammer to drive the blade deeply. Unsatisfied, she dropped her refrigerator to hold his legs.
Laurie recounts all the horror Michael brought into her life as she stabbed him in the armpit, cut his arm, and cut his neck – all the cuts that were made with the intention of bleeding him. When Frank arrives and sees Laurie with “dead” Michael, she declares he is not dead “enough”. The body was brought outside as Sheriff Parker (Omar J. Dorsey) approved the procedures, strapped to the hood of a motorcade leading a motorcade to a local scrap yard. An industrial-sized scrap metal shredder was turned on, and Michael Myers turned to hamburger meat while the residents of Haddonfield watched.
In the aftermath, Alison decided to leave Haddonfield, and Laurie completed her diary. The doorbell rings and Frank takes out some vegetables, and Laurie brings back their previous conversation about cherry blossoms as they sit together on the porch. Inside the house everything is still quiet, then the title card appears on the screen.
What happened to Corey?
Haddonfield, Illinois has become a dark and dark place in the wake of Michael Myers’ brutality on Halloween night 2018. With the killer not arrested, and the memories of the horror he instilled still fresh, the community is disturbed and the presence of evil persists in the city’s atmosphere. Atrocity has an effect on everyone, but Corey Cunningham basically gets a concentrated dose of it from the source.
Cory is traumatized and scarred after the horrific incident on Halloween night 2019 when an accident resulted in the death of the child who was caring for children, and in 2022 he is emotionally knifed edge. He has people who care about him and connect with him, but there are others, like high school bullies, who torment him. Like Laurie and Allison, Cory doesn’t want to be defined by his horrible past, as he tries to move on… but then ends up in the dark when ostensibly infected by evil Michael Myers when he gets injured they are dragged into a serial killer’s sewage lair. .
all three Halloween The films in David Gordon Green’s trilogy are about the lasting effects of trauma, and while the journey ends with seeing Laurie Strode finally free of her demons, Corey is an example of what would have happened had Laurie taken a different path in dealing with the past than in which he is portrayed. HalloweenAnd the Halloween killsAnd the The end of Halloween – It’s clearly much darker. For all practical purposes, it’s the new Michael Myers, though ultimately not quite as powerful as the original.
Will this really be the end of the fight between Laurie Strode and Michael Myers?
If you are someone who interacts with a title The end of Halloween With irony, this is completely justified. between Jason Goes to Hell: Last FridayAnd the Freddy’s Death: The Last NightmareAnd the The third omen: the final struggleAnd the final destinationAnd, what’s more, there are a slew of horror series that promised firm conclusions and were followed by later stories. It makes sense to think that this wouldn’t be the last time moviegoers see Michael Myers on the big screen… but this new movie is definitely the end of the current franchise era, and it’s plausible that it will be the last time we see the killer do battle with Laurie Strode .
Looking at the illustrated death and destruction of Michael Myers in The end of HalloweenNot to mention the closure achieved by Laurie and Alison, it has been made clear that this is the definitive conclusion of this timeline set in Halloween canon. Unlike its immediate predecessors, it does not leave questions unanswered or leave us with a major problem. It’s closing the arc, and while Jamie Lee Curtis doesn’t like to say she’ll “never play Laurie” again, it’s hard to see where her story will go after this chapter.
Even if we don’t see another sequel in this canon, that doesn’t mean we’ll never see another Halloween movie again. If Hollywood thought there was money to be made from the brand, Michael Myers would come back. Would that mean a remake along the lines of the Rob Zombie approach? Does that mean catching up with Jimmy Lloyd from Danielle Harris from Halloween 4 And the Halloween 5? Or will we see a whole new approach taken with the lovable killer villain? Time will tell.
