But, it doesn’t end the way it had to. Firemen rush to the spot to stop the fire. Laurie, Karen, and Allyson keep yelling at them to stop and scream to let the house burn, but in vain. Michael Myers, manages to escape and beings the hunt.
On the other side, Laurie fights the injuries from encountering Michael. She inspires her daughter and granddaughter and tells them that the fight isn’t over yet and they have to fight against evil. At the hospital, Laurie happens to meet Tommy Doyle whom she used to babysit.
When they understand the pattern of Michael’s brutal kills, they understand where he’s headed to. They understand the fact that the more he kills the stronger he becomes. All the surviving victims of Michael Myers reunite against him and decide to end the evil once and for all.
The thrilling role Michael Myers was played by James Jude Courtney, Laurie was played by Jamie Lee Curtis, Karen her daughter was played by Judy Greer, Allyson the grand-daughter to Laurie was played by AndiMatichak. The little boy whom Laurie used to babysit was played by Anthony Michael Hall.
These are the lead roles of the movie. Besides these characters, we also have people who played the role of firemen and the community that unites to kill Michael Myers.
For any sequel movie, there would be higher expectations. Sequel films would add more meaning or become even more thrilling in every film. Considering that fact, Halloween Kills (2021) was not a disappointment.
The cinematography and the music have been the icing on the cake to the movie. The character of Laurie was brilliantly written. Jamie Lee Curtis is justified for this role. Brutal murders were no less than the previous film. It brings the audience to the edge of their seats.
However, this film didn’t take forward the character of Michael Myers. The characterization of Michael was still around hunting down and killing people like in the previous sequels. But, nevertheless, it definitely did justice to the genre in which the movie is placed.
People have much higher expectations of the next franchise that is expected to release in the year 2022.
