‘Halloween Ends’: Original Film’s Director Praises Sequel For Taking ‘RISKS’

Published

on

“Halloween Ends” is finally hitting theaters, marking the conclusion of a new trilogy inspired by the classic franchise launched in 1978 by director John Carpenter.

Despite only earning a 44% approval rating from critics, the title received praise from the veteran filmmaker.

As many fans know, Carpenter’s film set the tone for the slasher subgenre, with his film focusing primarily on immortal villain Michael Myers as he stalks nanny Laurie Strode on Halloween night.

Strode, who is central to the new trilogy, is played by Jamie Lee Curtis – of whom Carpenter is a big fan.

While chatting with MovieMaker, Carpenter praised the “risks” of “Halloween Ends” and Curtis’ extraordinary acting, saying:

Have fun watching:

“It went super well! I liked it a lot. It’s quite different [dos outros filmes da franquia]. I liked the risks taken in the plot. Jamie [Lee Curtis] it’s just amazing. She is just wonderful and I am so proud of her.

Besides Carpenter, Stephen King also gave his opinion on the David Gordon Green-directed sequel.

On his Twitter account, the legendary master of horror said he enjoyed the film and found it “surprisingly character driven”, although it wasn’t something as innovative as reinventing the wheel.

Check the release:

“I liked ‘Halloween Ends’. It doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but it is – sigh! – surprisingly character driven.

I really liked HALLOWEEN ENDS. It doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but it’s surprisingly character driven.

Among critics, international pundits were split on the work’s script and direction, despite praise for Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode.

Check out the main comments:

“I’ll say this: Even though I’m a fan of the franchise, when the title came out at the end of ‘Halloween Ends’, I found myself hoping they weren’t kidding.”, Jason Bailey – Playlist .

“It’s like watching a pilot episode for an anthology horror series ‘Tales of Haddonfield’ where scary things happen on October 31st but are only tangentially connected to the original films. It’s not a bad tone for a series, but it’s not a very satisfying film.”, William Bibbiani – The Wrap

“This trilogy defies expectations and deserves more than a few feathers with its bold and often confusing choices.”, Meagan Navarro.

“Just as David Gordon Green seems to have finally freed his legacy trilogy from the dead weight of the past, the film loses the courage of its convictions.”, Keith Watson.

“It’s disconcerting how actively resistant this seems to be just a good horror movie.”, Trace Sauveur – Austin Chronicle.

“The whole experience feels like a vision board or a collage of ideas rather than an actual movie.”, Hannah Lodge.

“Like the previous two films, [o diretor David Gordon] Green offers two hours of horror fun. And Laurie and Allyson are admirable warriors worth cheering on. – The Strait Times.

“…a half-raw, half-dumb waste of time and a rotten way to wrap up a beloved but beleaguered franchise” – FILMINK.

“Strictly adhering to the dark rooms and blazing blades formula, the film delivers the necessary share of cheap scares and carnage to satisfy fans of the franchise” – jimschembri.com.

“It may not be the film we want or deserve, but it aims for an altered presence that, if nothing else, cuts through any predictability” – The AU Review.

“There’s a strange majesty to the crazy last minutes of the last ‘Halloween.’ Stand firm for this and the fierce resistance of Jamie Lee Curtis” – Nobody’s Reading This But Me.

“Four years after the events of ‘Halloween Kills’, Laurie lives with her granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) as she finishes writing her memoir. Michael Myers has not been seen since. After being haunted by her presence for decades, Laurie is determined to let go of her fear and start living.But when a young man, Corey Cunningham (Rohan Campbell), is accused of killing a boy he was babysitting, the return of the violence and terror will force Laurie to finally face the evil she cannot control, once and for all.”
